July's inspiration will come from the painting 'Octoroon Girl by Archibald Motley

Octoroon Girl by Archibald Motley
(as suggested by Robin Jenkins)
Diva Demand for an extra 6 bonus points try and
work the following into your layout.

1. A Color or Black and White pic of yourself =  1pt
2. Shades of Red and Maroon colors (Monochramatic) = 2pts
3. Include a hat or gloves somewhere on the layout = 3pts

NOTE - From June we are now looking for individual entries for ARTastic, you may combine your entry with a sketch but we no longer want entries that combine other challenges as we feel the ladies that do the right thing and take the time to enter independent entries are disadvantaged when it comes to winning prizes. If it means we lose a few entries, so be it!

 The inlinkz post will go up shortly!

The Design Team have put together some great submissions,
so lots of inspiration to share with you all  :)

Entries for  "Octoroon Girl" will close
Friday 29th July at midnight.

Looking forward to seeing some great entries this month :)



  1. I love this inspiration & hope to see a lovely lot of players is a great one to work on.

  2. A lovely painting to be inspired by this month. Love this challenge!
    The DT members have made some really great layouts :)

  3. great inspo (even though I'm still not brave enough to join in)...and I always agree that challenges would never be combined unless it's JUST a sketch and a challenge( IMO-kinda tacky to create one layout for 8 challenges)

  4. What a striking painting, lots of inspiration here, I'll try and play along.

  5. Interesting challenge, will try to make it, don't scrap many photos of myself, but will try

  6. Thanks for sharing that striking painting. I had never heard of Archibald Motley and it was very interesting reading about him.
