Gothic Arch Templates/Patterns

In my book ~ Teach Yourself Visually - Collage & Altered Arts I touched upon Gothic Arches but due to room constraints I wasn't able to include any templates or patterns for various styles of Gothic Arches.

So this week I thought we'd play a bit with them!

Today I want to share with you 5 of the Gothic Arch Templates I've come up with (I'll share more later in the week) and then tomorrow I'll start sharing various Gothic Arches to give you a few ideas on how to go about creating some of your own!

Since there are no specified sizes when working with Gothic Arches, I would suggest printing them off in a size you think you would like to work with. Once you're satisfied with the size, create a chipboard template to keep on hand for future use. I keep chipboard templates in various sizes of the templates I use the most (basic, fancy #1 & triptych). Makes for much quicker creating when you have the templates ready to go.

  1. Thank you for the templates and this theme. I've had a set of the trytych ones and don't have a clue where I put mine. I look forward to see what you do with all of these.

  2. I also keep cardboard templates of favorite shapes. I started doing that after you had a template swap on the About. Com forum! Now I have more templates to add to my the fancy gothic arch!
