Summer Fun, with Shop and and Crop

Good morning, can you believe January is nearly over? To be honest I really have enjoyed this long holiday break and I am not looking forward to the kids going back, probably because I really dont want to do the school runs lol.... 

But while I am dreaming of how to stop time, I have another Summer inspired layout using the the stunning Doodlebug Designs.

ARTastic Guest Designer.....

Good morning how are you all? We are on the final count down to the school holidays ending, everything is ready to go, new uniforms, shoes, books, lunch boxes etc, all the labeling has been done ( to be honest its been done since the end of December), but I am ready to go just dont want to have to do school runs and routines so now I need to prepare myself lol.

I am sharing with you today my layout done for ARTastic Challenge blog, I must say am very honoured to be asked to do this months challenge as guest dt......

ARTastic is a challenge blog with a difference. We find inspiration in works of art.

THE RULES - You don't need to be arty to play along with us - we accept traditional paper, digital, mixed media and off the page creations at any level. International entries are welcome. You may combine with a sketch challenge only - no other combining will be accepted.Please include our inspirational artwork and a link back to ARTastic on your entry and tell us how you were inspired by our artwork.

Our first inspiration for 2017 is this fantastic painting by Ken Done called Sydney Night.



I loved this painting , the black with the pops of vibrant colour, this is what I tried to recreate with shimmers and texture paste for my background and of course you need a little pop of gold.

You still have time until the end of the month to upload your own take on this challenge.  All details are on the blog sidebar. We'd love to see what you can do with our inspiration this month.

So why dont you give it a go?

Till next time have a creative day

I am here for  Shop and Crop this morning and theres nothing like January with the heat and the sun, and this is the time where we collect those Summer photos and if your like me you have a stock pile. This is why I have loved working with this range this month its been awesome to get stuck into the stash and scrap them.

 Whats better than this range to do so?
