History Gothic Arch


The theme for the Gothic Arches Challenge this week is history. So it really covers a very broad area. I simply had a look at all my left over fabric/paper collages and found one featuring a view of a Paris bistro at around the turn of the century. What could be better? I love everything to do with Paris specially at that time of its history.

I search some more and found the image of the military look lady on a collage sheet from Divasdeste called Les Femmes de Paris.

The transparencies with Specialite and Paris came from Artchix Studio's sheet Classy Labels and the finishing touch proved to be the clock (to reflect the historical aspect of time passing) which I obtained at Ingliston from The Button Lady. Everything was stitched on with gold metallic thread for that certain va va voom!!

Wow! I think this is probably the first time I've come across your blog, and I have to share that it's quite the treat. You definitely have a way with fabric! It would be great to see if you ever quilt together all the gothic arches.
