ARTastic June Challenge

Really?!!! Really?!!! is it June already! How on earth did that happen?! And winter has well and truly set in here. The house is cosy with the fire constantly burning, and it's so good to come home to a warm house and our welcoming committee, who love nothing better than lying in front of the fire. The cold weather is such a good time for some creativity.  ARTastic has another great challenge to keep us occupied this month. Check out this piece of artwork by Luka Va called "Bird King".  CRITERIA: Wood veneer and/or birds.

And here is my DT design:

I've used some old G45 paper with Prima flowers. The birds & butterfly I fussy cut from some papers that I can't remember the name of, gold doily and a couple of wood veneer embellies.

I added some gold glitter to the butterfly wings and gold beads to the flower centres & blue beads to the butterfly's body.

This is a pic of my Dad and my daughter last Christmas, just after she arrived home from her two year stint overseas. Her Grandfather missed her so much and promptly informed her that she wasn't allowed to leave the country ever!  This is such a fun challenge because you are free to create a design of your own choosing and all you need to do is cover the easy criteria. I really hope you can play along this month. You can check out all the other DT inspo HERE
