TRIPTYCH

NOW TRADED Haven't made one of these 3 sided ATCs in a while, but enjoyed doing it. This is for the "Middle Ages" challenge on TMTA

There seemed to be so many things I wanted to do with this theme that I needed to use this format to get them all on! Very much a scrapbooker's ATC with quite a lot of paper for the background, and I used ink to slightly age the silver arch. I was thinking about the lady in her window with painted tapestries on her walls (viz the gold patterned paper). The writing represents a love letter from a promised husband she won't meet until her wedding day. Yes I DO know I have a very fanciful imagination .....

This is available to trade.

Oh Rosie. I just love that you have a storyteller's imagination. This piece just reflects it and has such warmth and depth. Just beautiful in every way.
