Hope Is The Purple Goth Thing With Feathers

This collage is for Gothic Arch, and it's all about the harmony of art, love, and hope in my life. I used bubblewrap stamping in a complementary color scheme (Mixed Media Monday)and one of my favorite poems by Emily Dickenson "Hope Is the Thing With Feathers." (Craftaway Sunday).

Well of course anybody would know that a bird like that would be found in a gothic arch. Too cool. It feeds my color addiction.

I love even the thought that hope might be a bird that is this funky and full of energy! Great idea to use bubble wrap for stamping. This arch is exquisite! Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful messages that you leave on my blog. They are always so beautifully written, wonderfully descriptive and very much appreciated.

Brilliant, bold and beautiful, Alberta! A very funky arch and full of meaning - I love it!
BTW - I found our Jester's hat... in case you'd like one! If you would, just say the word and I'll send it to you - it even has bells on it!!
