Crazy eyed girl and gothic arches

It's that time again...  ABC_alteredbookclub is having it's annual anniversary swap. This year the shape & size was put to a vote and Gothic arches won out.
Previous years  have been skinny pages, chunky pages, charms and even my personal favorite...circles!

I've gotten all my arches cut out as you can see. I'm struggling with the paint I used to cover both sides as it has remained slightly tacky. To remedy this I glued dressmakers pattern tissue to the stickiest side. I'll have to come up with some thing to deal with the other side as well but for now I have a workable solution to start with.

See this gal.

I call her the "crazy eyed girl". The scan and subsequent digital work have really subdued the scariness of her eyes from the original photo. You'll be seeing her on my finished arches...hopefully. :)

HMMM. I'm going to have to stay away from your blog so I'll be surprised when I get my arch. Right now, they look rather TASTY! I haven't even started cutting mine. I did get my substrate glued together. I'm using double thickness. So let us know about the tackiness and what you do to correct it.
