:::Shades of White:::

Our hostess this week is Hermine Koster who has selected the theme “Shades of White.” She created this beautiful arch using white as her hue. What do you invision when “white” comes to mind in your artwork. We would love to see it here in gothic arch form!

About our hostess:

Thank you Nancy for asking me to host again. I have choose this theme because I really like to work ton-sur-ton, in white as well as in colour. Love to stretch a colour to the max. Made this arch using crackle medium and gesso for the background, sponged a little with distress antique linen to match this gorgeous vintage image. Then played around with some tyvek, really love the structure and the fact that you never know what you end up with, every time it is a surprise. Finally added some paper flowers and buttons as a finishing touch. Hope you like this theme as much as I do and looking forward to your artwork.
