I had oogled this arch shaped for a swap that Tina, Belinda(both of their blog links are on my sidebar) and some other talented artists did, and Tina was kind enough to send me a bbbbbeautiful one of my own--you can see it on Tina's blog!!THANK YOU TINA, so I used hers to make a template and created ones in return for her and also for Belinda, who I am trading with! This shape is such fun! I just love it. The purplish page is collaged papers, covered with some purple lumiere paint and stamping in black and brilliance olive and whites.....stamped words are on the circle there on bleached paper I made. The other side is a sweet vintage image , more collaging and stamping and some sewing around the edges! I will mail them soon girls!! Fun!!!!

These are beautiful Patti! Love the arch shape. Both of these deigns are lovely. Not sure which one I like the best! Am really taken with the first ones with the children and row of birds (I LOVE those birds). But the second one is just as striking.

Patti Sweet,

Your arch shapes are lovely. There isn't anything you can't do and you do it so beautifully. Are the Arches sewn together?

I also LOVE your collaborative background project. Super! xxoo Marilyn
