Siren's Song

Over at Gothic Arches the theme is

Our hostess this week is Caryl Hoobler who created this beautiful Gothic arch using the theme “Mermaids” which she selected. What do you think of with this theme? Sea maidens? Sirens? Merpeople or Merfolk? Whatever the vision may be we wish to see it here in Gothic form!

A bit about our hostess:
I love the freedom of mixed media art and I love the tiny canvas of a Gothic Arch. I tend to throw unexpected elements into my pieces, but there is a thought process behind what items I use in a piece. I tend to draw upon life experiences when creating and look for items that may bring back a certain memory from any given time or place. I’ve chosen Mermaids as the theme this week as Mermaids are so magical and can live in wildly colorful settings! I can’t wait to see where your Mermaids live!

You may see more of Caryl’s beautiful work on her blog:

I don't feel like my Arch is done...I just don't know what else to do, any suggestions???

Its a lovely Arch.. some times you have to resist teh temptation to add anything as you can go and spoil something ( I do it all the time and have to start over) and its no good asking my.. my answer to everything is gold or copper metallic embosing round the edges ( I do that all the time and I need to stop it now lol)

its a good arch!!! leave it alone lol :-)

Oh I LOVE Mermaids! I think adding some "sea themed" treasures tied to your fibers may give it the touch you are looking for. ;)
