Gothic Arch Challenge "Paper patchwork"


This week the challenge was to include paper patchwork. I save up lots of small pieces of paper never knowing when they will come in useful and decided to use some and make a window effect. Layed different shades of blue paper in a fan effect. Added piece of striped paper at the bottom of background to resemble a wall and some blue paper at top of arch to contrast. Added some paper trees at bottom and a word sentiment "Explore". Imagine this little cat is looking out into the wide world looking forward to wonderful adventures.
