"Patchwork"......" Gothic Arch"


Here is my Gothic Arch for this weeks challenge which is "Patchwork"
Cora...our host for this week used a painting technique for her sample....so I thought I would give it a try.
I dont know if I got the technique quite right as you were meant to paint over pieces of paper covering the arch and then rub some off to reveal what was underneath....unfortunately my paint had dried too much and I had a bit of a job! I enjoyed having a try though and will definitely have another go at it in the future.
I hope you like it anyway !

This is lovely Ruby May. I think the trick with the paint is it works OK if you use Golden slow drying acrylic which we don't have in the UK so I didn't bother with the paint, but yours looks beautiful it does not look like you had a paint problem at all.

This is gorgeous, Rubymay. I had the same thing happen, so I put my piece in the sink and ran water over it to scrub off some of the paint.

Cora said...
