      A lot of people ask what an arch is. I always respond by saying Think of a Gothic window and I get a response of oooooh. I love arches. They are mini pages and present me with the most freedom and at the same time, a great challenge because of it's size. I found these on Roni's blog called Ink Stains. It is a fun blog and I love looking at all of the artwork. It feeds my soul if you know what I mean.

      There doesn't seem to be a standard size, like ATCs, but everyone seems to stick with a 6 inch height. You can download these and then print them off. I have used these to make chipboard templates that I use all the time.

      **Tip: When I make an arch, I always cut out a piece of chipboard for each project and glue my paper or collage items over it. You need the strength of the chipboard for it to stand up. 🙂

        I do a lot of arches for SNR. Here are a few examples. I have a lot more but they haven't been published yet, so I can't show them.

              Shona~ How pretty is that?!!! See, they are way too much fun aren't they?! Careful, you may et addicted!!

              I just submitted one for SNR's march issues that I am really proud of. It is kind of artsy and I used some new techniques on it. It is one of my favorite arches to date.

                    I've never done these before!! I'm gonna have to give it shot, they're really neat!

                    "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
