Welcome everyone to the new ARTastic Challenge Blog. I have had this idea floating about for ages and welcome you to share it with me as inspiration for some creative layouts. I have had a passion for the great artists since highschool fact here is my year 12 submission that I dragged out from under the bed (you didnt hear that from me LOL) that (as daggy as it is to some) it was inspired by an artist called Gustav Klimt. In fact I did a whole series in different medium and gave them as present so Mum and my sister both have masterpieces hanging on the walls LOL

So as a quick challenge for April I have dragged out the following works by the same artist as inspiration for your masterpiece!

You can use the colours, subject idea, or geometric patterns for your designs. In fact whatever inspires you from the great artist!! Each month a new artist will feature. Check the side bar for the current prize of the month. We are not currently sponsored by stores so its a little treat for your efforts from me :)

I am also looking for anyone interested in scrapping for fun and being part of the ARTastic team . Basically this involves creating a LO using the design with a commitment of 1 per month. This is a purely for fun role with no payment. If your interested email me with your details :) see the side bar for contact :)

So you have until the end of the month of April to email your layouts to me. Look forward to seeing your creations :)
