Lá Fhéile Pádraig


Happy St Patrick's Day everyone - I hope you all can take time out to enjoy the celebrations.


This week's Gothic Arch Challenge was All Things Celtic and I felt I had to at least try to make something for it. This is a very quick effort, the image is one from the Book of Kells with various celtic stamps used around the edges with some copper foil, mesh and wire.


Enjoy your day.
