Gothic Arches - Open


This week the theme is open, choose what you want, well this was torture how to select from all the things I would like to do so I asked my husband to give me a theme and he came up with theatre. I guess I ended up more Music Hall / Vaudeville than pure theatre, but this lady looks like she would be very entertaining and I have no idea what she plans with that sword! My background is embossing with Ecoline painting, the image has been painted with water colours.

Oh yes, this is one show that I'd like to see!! Do you think she's going to dance around that sword? Love how you've created the stage curtains around her.
