Altered Arch

I've had a play with one of the ~{Gothic Arches}~ to make a small gift and I'd forgotten how lovely they are!

I've painted it with gesso which I've then heated to get this gorgeous bubbly texture before painting with acrylic paints. I also used sprays, stamps and doodled a lot!

I got the gesso VERY hot to make it bubble as much as possible and it had no effect on the chipboard base. It remained flat and had no bend in it at all.
