:::All Things Celtic:::


This weeks theme is “All Things Celtic” and our hostess Mary-Beth has made this beautiful arch to start our challenge.

What do you think of with this theme? castles and the Emerald Isle? your ancestors? St. Patrick? bagpipes? Whatever it may be we would love to see your arch this week!

A bit about our hostess:

I am thrilled, awed and frightened to be hostess this week! LOL Thank you Nancy for the opportunity!

I began stamping about 6 or 7 years ago and that in turn has led me to this journey into art which I am enjoying tremendously. I am now mostly interested in mixed media and if I can use my stamps. great!

I love to go blog hopping to see what everyone is doing and to see if I can adapt that idea to my art. I am unable to take classes or workshops due to my crazy schedule so this is how I learn.

I am 3rd generation Canadian from an Irish immigrant family and am very proud of my heritage. My cousins have traced our genealogy all the way back to 1599 when my ancestors came to Ireland from Normandy! So in honour of St. Patrick’s Day and my ancestry – ‘All things Celtic’. I hope you have a lot of fun with this theme, I can’t wait to see everyones wonderful art! (Don’t feel you have to limit yourself to Irish Celts. If I remember my fact right, Celts were all over Europe.)

You can see more of Mary-Beth’s beautiful art work on her blog:

  26. I have visited this site on many an occasion now but this post is the 1st one that I have ever commented on.

    Congratulations on such a fine article and site I have found it very helpful and informative – I only wish that there were more out there like this one.

    I never leave empty handed, sometimes I may even be a little disappointed that I may not agree with a post or reply that has been made. But hey! that is life and if every one agreed on the same thing what a boring old world we would live in.

    Keep up the good work and cheers.

  27. This is my entry.

    Tami R.

  35. Alright, now you’ve done it. My wife has been making these assemblage pieces for a while(see them at the link in my name) and while I thought they were fabulous I never really had a serious urge to try it out. My creativity finds it’s outlet mostly with a fiddle or guitar. But this gothic arch challenge things hit’s on two things for me.

    First, I’ve always LOVED baroque architecture and the period in which it came about.

    Second, hey, I’m a guy! Challenge me to do something? Well get on out of the way cause here I come. 😉

    Yeah yeah, I know it’s not a competition but I don’t let facts get in the way of my pursuits.

    Thanks for pushing me over the tipping the point.

  36. Hi

    This is my first time taking up the challenge – I’ll be back for more 🙂 you can see mine here – please look and leave a comment.
