Her's a layout from a newbie on ARTastic :)

Chantal Vandenberg - Aussie Style


Hi Shazza,
Here is my 1st entry for ARTastic! I was inpsired by "The Kangaroo" by Garry Shead in more ways than one... firstly the Aussie theme, the colours - blue, green and brown feature predominantly like the painting, there's a photo of human contact with a kangaroo (just like the painting...lol) and also I used the painting rather like a sketch, but flipped (left is right, right is left). :D I have also answered the Diva Demand with the animal embellie... I have a vintage Australian stamp featuring the Hooded Dotterel and also a vintage 1960 Australian Half Penny featuring... you guessed it... the good ol' kangaroo! I so enjoyed doing this! Thanks Shazza!!! :D Cheers, Chantal.

Well done Chantal, you have put a lot of work into this piece, love how your work looks like a mixed media piece. Great idea to use it as a flipped sketch lol Lots of embellies to catch you eye. I never thought of using a penny, what a good idea :) Beautiful and colorful, I think it's turned out great!! - Shazza
