This week in the "Gothic Arches Challenge" was to take your arch and add it to a tag. Here is my take on this challenge. . Taking time out of my busy schedule for creativity is a must for my sanity. Therefore my piece is called "Take Time to Create".

The arches were made on either side with my distinguished looking man popping up 3-d in the middle... A friend of mine said it looked like he was in a cuckoo clock which actually is good, means my theme was around "time". I have always loved clocks and so really enjoyed making this.

I base painted the foundation tag and arches with acrylic paint, then added "Mudd Puddles, a wonderful product that addes texture to your product. Very easy to use, like frosting a cake. The colors I used were Black Gold & Cookies and Cream. . Dripped alcohol ink "Stream" sporadically over the project for a pop of color. Added clocks of all sorts and beautiful colored fibers to finish off the tag. I really appreciate the different challenge blogs that are available out there on the internet. Sometimes you get a creative block and need inspiration. Gothic Arches blog is one of those that makes you want to "Take Time to Create"... thank you for looking....:)
