Another Paris Arch


Before the theme changes later on today on the Gothic Arches challenge site, I'm adding another Paris themed arch. This one is for a swap on the MailArtWorld site. The background is a Paris themed fabric/paper collage, featuring a vintage map of Paris as well as napkins with French bistros and bars. To these I've added a transparency of the Eiffel Tower (from Altered Pages), an image of a Parisian beauty (Divasdeste Classic Beauties fabric sheet) and an authentic French postage stamp. The quotation: We'll always have Paris is from a sheet by European Papers. Finally I added a rose to the beauty as well as a Paris charm at the top. The sides were machine zig-zag stitched with a variegated metallic thread, picking up all the colours in the arch.
