Winners of Van Gogh's Starry Night

Thankyou to everyone who entered this months challenge, we had 21 entries, which was a great effort and I can only thankyou all for participating and helping make this challenge site grow.

I hope you all enjoyed the 'Starry Night' challenge and look forward to you all playing along again in November......... :)

The range of entries was fantastic, very creative and inspiring. It was a difficult decision and I personally found it very difficult to choose my winners and I know the DT probably did as well.

To vote we used the 1st=3pt, 2nd= 2pt and 3rd = 1pt system!!


The October winner of the
Starry Night challenge


Natalie Elphinstone

with her entry - 'O Holy Night'

Natalie, your OTP piece caught my eye straight away, I loved it because it was different and a lot of work had gone into it, the textured swirls were fantastic. You also received 12 fantastic comments from the DT and other blog Followers who obviously thought the same. - A fantastic well deserved win!! :) Thanks for participating, you have won a $10 store voucher donated by 'my2angels' - Shazza.

I hope you all get a chance to participate in the challenge for November which is Tadema's "A Greek Woman', which has just been posted.
