This weeks theme is “Royalty/Crowns” which was selected by our hostess Kris Dickinson. Isn’t her arch just beautiful! What comes to your mind when you think of Royalty/Crowns? Kings and Queens? Fairy Tales? We want to see it here this week in gothic arch style!

A bit about our hostess:
Thank you Nancy for choosing me to host the Gothic Arch Challenge this week. I chose the theme Royalty/Crowns as I’ve always been fascinated with the kings and queens of Europe. In particular, The Romanovs of Russia. Such a beautiful and tragic family. I have chosen Nicholas II and Alexandra of Russia as my subject for my arch. For this challenge, please do not limit yourselves to just actual royalty. Alter a little king or queen or crown a bird, etc…I can’t wait to see what you create!

Kris Dickinson resides in Parker, CO and has been creating collage’ and mixed media pieces for many years. She is married and has a 9 year old daughter.
