Gothic Arch - Music & Lyrics

I absolutely loved this weeks Gothic Arch Challenge because it gave me a chance to play around with a Stevie Nicks pic and lyrics. Sad to report I'm actually a bit of a Mac groupie (almost to the point of obsession, but not quite...!) and when I lose my mojo I find that putting a CD or DVD on generally kickstarts me back into action again. Stevie Nicks has the most amazing voice and writes the most enchanting lyrics and her stage presence is hypnotic. I could have chosen just about any one of her songs, but Gold Dust Woman is one of my very favourites so I picked this as my inspiration for this arch. The background is painted gold and spritzed with antique gold and rose glimmer mists, but it doesn't really show in this light. The image is one of my favourites - I always think she looks like a deity, so I trimmed it and added my own 'jewels' and of course, she's sitting on a carpet of gold dust (yeah!! LOL!).

Thanks for looking in!
