ARTastic January Challenge...
I was honoured to be a Guest Designer for ARTastic recently - a very inspirational Challenge Blog by the way - and when one of Jane's Design Team members stepped down from her position, Jane kindly offered the gig to me....happy days! Pop on over to ARTastic's blog and check out all the DT inspiration and how it all works. This month's challenge certainly gets the mojo flowing for the new year.
This is such a cute piece of artwork don't you think? I was inspired by the brick wall and some of the colours and also when I looked at this I felt the need to create a masculine page. So here is my take:
I used a brick stencil on the background and also some little brick-shaped chippies covered in a newspaper print. I grunged the background with some coloured texture paste and used some brick-patterned washi tape and also added a few rub-on quotes. I really like this photo of the guys, engrossed in the footy results, doing what they do best.
I'd love for you to call into the ARTastic Challenge Blog and have a go at this challenge. I'm sure there is something in this piece of artwork that inspires you.
Thanks for dropping by :) xx
