gothic arches "any theme of your choice"



I thought I would have a bit of fun with the word goth so decided to use truly gothic images on a goth arch! I have had these newspaper clippings of the great horror actors Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Vincent Price for quite a while and was "dying"!! to use them. So background is painted black, with a dictionary quote on "libido"!!, a skull image, moths on the actors heads and the word "goth" stamped in blood red Great fun


For the next arch I used a newspaper clipping of a painting by Klimt. There is an exhibition at the Tate in Liverpool at the moment on Klimt...(I havent been yet as the admission price is £7..its usually half this price!). However, I did my own painted background added butterfly wings behind her head and stamped the word "art" over a dictionary definition of "liberal."
