Gothic arches - Paris Exposition


This week's Gothic Arches Challenge is Lynn Stevens' theme of Paris Exposition. I created this arch that opens like you are entering the Exposition to see the sites. I based it on the 1889 Paris Exposition that featured the Eiffel Tower - wouldn't it have been fun to stroll around Paris in 1889? Such beautiful clothing from that era! Collage images are from Enchanted Mercantile and Piddix and my stamped images are phrases from the Paris Exposition set from Artistic Outpost.

Wow - stunning. You have worked so much detail onto the arch yet composed it in a manner so it is not overbearing. I sat there studying it to take in all the elements. I would gladly stroll around Paris - only visited once and would love to re-visit. Lynne x

Hi Penny - thanks for popping by. I love making the dresses & the little hearts were fun too.
Catching up on your lovely work..the Paris Arches are beautiful. Paris just lends itself to glamour doesn't it ?
