Welcome to November and a final challenge ...

Welcome to November. I am sorry to say this will be our final challenge as I have made the difficult decision to give ARTastic a bit of a break – at least for the next twelve months. I will review this decision at the end of 2023.

Thank you so very much for all your amazing support and delightful submissions. I have enjoyed creating challenges for all of you over the past 10 years.

My sincere gratitude to the very many talented ladies who have been part of our creative team – I could not have done it without you and your fantastic submissions and your positive reinforcement and encouragement has inspired me always.

We sincerely hope you will join in with us for this final challenge.


 Do you love the use of green and wood, inspired by the jungle scene or like the way items are draped in this room or perhaps have zoo or rainforest photos you need to scrap?

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – we’d love to hear what jumped out at you!

And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
I took my inspiration from the jungle vibe, and I made a double-page, rainforest-themed layout.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
I saw a double page spread, so that's what I created. Mostly green, with some brown and jungle themed. I used paint, nuvo drops, kinda glitz, die-cuts and stickers and added a flair.

Karen Guy (Australia)
My inspiration was of course the gorgeous green and it just looked like long green leaves!

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
I took my inspiration from the jungle animals and did a zoo page! This is my eldest son on a kinder trip to the zoo way back in 1989!

Jane Howden - (Australia)

I was inspired to create a double page of rainforest photos of a recent trip.  I picked up the green, yellow and touch of orange from the ARTroom.

Our monthly prize winner is selected by random draw - so anyone could be a winner, you just have to be in it to win it!

Welcome to October ...

Welcome to our October challenge and our new ART room this month. Do you love the colours, love the shapes, inspired by the domestic scene or like the way items are framed in this room or perhaps have a delight in all things foxy?

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – we’d love to hear what jumped out at you!


And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Karen Guy (Australia)
My inspiration were the gorgeous colours and of course Mr Fox, from a recent pottery class!

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
The art room reminded me of an op shop mural we saw on one of our girls' road trips.
 I took inspiration from the navy/white background, frames, and bright pops of orange.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
I chose a busy navy and white background, used a G45 paper called Anchors Aweigh from the Catch of the Day collection. Then I added orange papers and made a feature with squares.

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
I used the frames, orange colours, and Fox as my inspiration.

Jane Howden - (Australia)
Inspired by the colours, theme and frames.
Couldn't resist doing this page - it's been waiting quite a while!

Welcome to September ...

Welcome to our September challenge and our new ART room this month. Do you love the colours, love the shapes, like the pleating in the background curtains or perhaps inspired by something to do with fashion?

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – we’d love to hear what jumped out at you!


And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Karen Guy (Australia)
I was inspired by the colours and the significance of three models!

Karen Brierley - (Australia)

I took my inspiration from the fashion theme and the pink pleated curtain. I made my own soft-pleated background with a paper napkin.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
I've used the colours of the booths, aqua, bright pink and yellow. There are ladies dressed in colourful outfits. I've zentangled in a rectangular shape in bright colours.

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
I took my inspiration from the large red rectangle in the centre of the page. I added a topper to the top of my rectangle and also the bottom. I used burlap pp, similar to the woven piece in the background of the lge red rectangle. And finished off with a floral display of blue and yellow taken from the colours of the other rectangles.

Jane Howden - (Australia)
I was inspired by the colours (obviously) and the large rectangles and replicated them on a pink background much like the ARTroom.  Bonus I had these photos in a similar colourway of a visit to a local art gallery.

Welcome to August ...

Our third Cyber Crop of the year will be held on 19/20/21 of August with over a week to get your entries in to us. We will host three fun challenges, games and have some wonderful prizes for you! So hope you can come join in with us!!


Welcome to our August challenge and our new ART room this month. Does this one remind you of the country - fields of crops, wheat silos, harvesters in motion?  Or perhaps you immediately think of picnics, baskets of goodies on a rug or maybe you like the horse theme or perhaps something to do with fashion?

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – we’d love to hear what jumped out at you!


And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
So enjoyed putting this page together, my ‘witches’ ( that’s what we call our group), all together at Carolyn’s farm. We try and escape to the farm every 3-4 months for some crafty time!

Karen Guy (Australia)
Something different, I was inspired by the colours and the Mood board made me think of this Christmas photo!

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
Scrapping another journal page, about a little stop on our "3 girls" road trip. Golden fields as far as we could see.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
I've picked up the kraft coloured background, the red from the dress and the wheat. Plus, there's bound to be tea in that picnic basket, right?

Jane Howden - (Australia)
I was inspired by the basic colours and the wheat to document a memory from my childhood - Harvest time on the farm.

Welcome to July ...

Welcome to our July challenge and our new ART room this month. Lots of different colours to select from - like games? - we have you covered!


This year we are making some changes to our challenges which I hope you will all enjoy. During 2022 our inspiration is coming to you from ART ROOMS (aka store window displays). Just bear in mind that these are actual window displays, mostly behind glass, so the images may not be as clear and crisp as our previous artwork images.

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – it may be the colours, or the overall style or perhaps there is a specific item you see that you can replicate on your page.  Maybe you like a background pattern or a shape in the display or want to use photos that match the theme.  We’d love to hear what jumped out at you!

And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
I took my inspiration from the board game theme - I used dominoes and spots and a light blue background.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
I've used the colours, especially light blue background. I have squares, like the domino shape. Also included luck.

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
I was inspired by the domino display window and used domino patterned paper as my background. I went with a game I loved playing during Covid isolation with my family! 
Karen Guy (Australia)
I was inspired by the Chess pieces and colours in this window display, they were perfect for this photo I had of the Grandchildren playing with the large Chess board in the park!

Jane Howden - (Australia)
I was inspired by the colours of brown and blue and the dominos as we all love playing this game at home.
