Let's Go Fly a Kite


The challenge this past Sunday over at Gothic Arches is:
This week our theme is “Handwriting” which was selected by our hostess Dymphie. Use your own handwriting on the arch, paint a few letters, calligraph a quote (i would looooove to see that). I don’t like my own handwriting very much, but i like to use it in my art-work, it seems more my own when i do so.

We want to see your handwriting on your arches this week!

You can see more of Dymphie’s beautiful artwork on her blog:http://papierenavonturen.blogspot.com/
At First I said "NO WAY" I use stamps I can't do that. But then after working on my Soul Journal I realized that I can and that adding my own touches, be them my handwriting or just some doodling, really makes me feel good.
So, here is my Gothic Arch with handwritin. I copied down the words to "Let's go Fly a Kite" Also, I made the kites without any stamps. This is my very first piece of art that dosn't have collage images or stamps used and I am very pleased with it.

I can imagine you are pleased with your arch, you should be. Love all the kites you made (any tutorial in sight?), so fun and cheerful. Great writing in the background, love the dimension it adds to your arch. Thanks for playing at GAC this week :)

This is so unique. I absolutely love it. Great use of colors - so vibrant. I love the three dimensional quality of the kits. It is whimsical. I've been so busy with the soul journal that I had to get up early to get my arch done!
