GA-School



Nancy started a gothic arch challenge blog with the first challenge posted today. I never really imagined myself doing this style since I see so many amazing things with it, but I was inspired by the school theme. It was easier than I thought it would be, and fun to boot.

The transparency image is by redletterart.com. I also used mini staples, distress crackle paint, distress inks, Rusty Pickle paper left over from the pirate project, ABC twill tape, notebook paper, twisty tie, and a brad. The gold star is a fabric patch from my stash. The sentiment is by inkadinkado from that killer sale Julie took me to last weekend. Thanks for a wonderful challenge, Nancy. You helped me stretch my limits today.
