"Gothic Arch" – Garden Sprite (problem with uploaded image)

Since I started doing the Sunday Postcard Art challenges, when I look at everyone’s postcards, I’ve noticed some people have been doing a “Gothic Arch” challenge. Their creations looked wonderful and it looked like a really cool challenge. But I was a novice, so I didn’t venture beyond SPA. Recently, I started looking for new ones to do, to expand on my creativity. I’ve done two Tag It On challenges, and I’m thinking about doing the Art Creations Friday one. I looked into the Gothic Arch challenge, but it’s by invitation only. So, I made my own, after I saw what someone said the theme was, even though I don’t know what the rules/requirements are for making one. I’m just doing this for myself, to have fun.

First, I created a Gothic Arch template. I got the arch from Clipart ETC and modified it. Then I colored it. The end result is the template I will use every time I do a Gothic Arch challenge, but I don’t know how often that will be.

Technical notes to myself: Something is very wrong with the image uploaded to my blog. The arch (background) is very blurry, but it doesn't look that way on my computer. And I see the pixel "ghost" problem on the blog, but that isn't in my image. Awwrrrr!!! I might have to yank this post. The picture looks awful! :-(

Tue May 26, 2009 19:25: I had to compromise and change the arch color to green. After spending a lot of time on this, and even adding lines for the stone blocks, I still had a problem with blue colors appearing blurry when I uploaded the image. TODO: I need to revisit this problem, to determine what it is.
