Winners announced for ...Ecstasy of Saint Cecelia' by Raphael

Hi Ladies!

Here are the winners of January's challenge, unfortunately we only had five entries a bit on the low side but hopefully next month we can improve on our number of submitted entries.

This will also be my last posts as I am stepping down as owner of ARTastic and handing it over to the very talented and super excited Jane Howden. 

I have really enjoyed running things here over the last two years and I have been inspired by the many entries and different paintings we have looked at and scrapped to over this time. I remember when I took over we only had 8 followers and this has now grown to 290!! I will be staying on as one of the DT ladies, so I will still be here :)

Jane has some fabulous ideas for the site and will take ARTastic to the next level. She's already started making little changes to the site, like the colors and side panels, so please make Jane very welcome here......

Without further ado....
Here are our winners!!
