Gothic arch challenge Trees

My arch shows trees throughout the year, and as I love trees I might just do an arch book of trees, but not this side of Christmas.

My pieces for my two themes

These are the pieces that I have done for my own themes. The first one is my angel, and the last two are for my Oriental jigsaw. They are all complete, so will mount them onto canvas as soon as I have bought them. I seem to have every size apart from the one I want.

For the Oriental ones, I have used stampboard, friendly plastic, charms, and beads to give them a three D dimensional look. The backgrounds on all of them were painted with a pearlescent acrylic dabber, and then stamped. The Oriental ones have been embossed with clear powder. Two of them have my favourite accent beads on.

The last jigsaw

Gosh, did I struggle with this one. It's for Sheila, who wanted a homespun, rustic, country, shabby look, in faded blues, green, and cream. I painted the background with acrylics, stamped the rag doll, shrank another one, and added various bits and pieces. I think I got carried away, and put too much on.
Just my own to do now.
