Background was made using Vintage photo, Rusty hinge, Wild honey and Barn door distress inks smudged randomly then I stamped my arches on with versafine ink... a wet brush was then used to take out some of the colour in lines .. when blotted with kitchen towel it hopefully gives the effect of light coming in through left hand window. words, ancient, atmospheric & arches were added freehand.
I had to think a bit harder about the second page, and as I was hoovering I remembered some photos I had taken of two bridges within 5 minutes walk of where I live. The most famous one is Thomas Telford's Menai Suspension Bridge built in 1826 it connects the island of Anglesey with mainland Wales , and the second one is Robert Stephenson's Britannia Bridge, originally when it was built in 1845 to carry trains it was just a tube supported by pillars but after a fire in 1970's they added a new roadway and the arches to support it.
Choosing a song title for this page was difficult only one I could think of was 'Underneath the Arches' an old 1940's song , I can just vaguely remember Flanagan & Allen singing it. When I googled for other suitable songs this was the one that came out first so I went with it.
Just realised as I came to close this post A is also for ... me.... Annie, Bye xxx
