Welcome to ARTastic 2010

Hi Ladies,

This is a challenge site that inspires you with paintings from the Great Artists. Each month we feature a new painting, the Design Team then submit their interpretations. At the end of the month we all vote on the entries. The winning layout is then featured for the following month in the sidebar and the winner receives a blinkie to display on their blog, they also win the 'Picture This' winning prize for the month. We usually have at least 3 prizes each month including a 'Random Draw' prize and a RAK from our Guest DT member.............. lots of reasons to have a go at our challenges!!!

Well I hope everyone had a great Christmas Day and enjoyed spending time with family and friends........the day just goes to quick for me!! This year we had a quiet New Years, I went out for dinner and then watched the celebrations on TV. I hope you all had an enjoyable New Years and didn't wake up with a sore head this morning!!!

With ARTastic challenge blog this year, I really want to inspire you all. We have lots of followers of this site so it would be great to see more of you have a go :) Last month we had 3 newbies that tried the Vermeer challenge which was fantastic and of course we have our regulars that enter each month (you know who your are!!) We are always adding more prizes to give everyone a fair chance at having a win!

I am glad to say that I have the best Design Team on the net. These ladies are always so creative and inspiring. they add a personal touch with their comments on entries during the month. They do a great job with helping out voting for the winners each month, which can get very difficult when we have so many fantastic entries to chose from...

My New Years resolution for 2010 is:

To be more creative and inspire others to have a go!

SO.... with that in mind

To start off ARTastic and January 2010 with a Bang!!!

I am offering a fantastic prize of a Guest DT spot for March.

This means that you get to showcase your work, bio, and blog site etc..... so we can all see how creative you have been. Remember all this adds to your scrappy 'CV' when going for other DT positions :)

1) enter the challenge for January
2) When emailing your layout to me just add a paragraph as to why? you would like to win a Guest DT spot on ARTastic
3)Include your blog address

Winner will be picked by me and announced at the end of the month.

Ladies give it a go, this is a great opportunity!
