A little about Lisa Frances Judd ...

Lisa Frances Judd is a self-taught artist from The Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia who has been drawing and painting as long as she could hold a crayon. Her distinctive style showcases a passion for bold colors and bright, repeating patterns and textures. In addition to participating in group and solo shows in Sydney and other locations around Australia, Lisa’s work has been licensed in both the US and Australia. 
And now some inspiration from our team ...

My gorgeous dog, Jess. I took inspiration from the mix of colours (even included a splash of purple!) and the black outlines.

I liked the orange tones and the stripes in the painting so I decided to add them to my layout too.

Annemarie Caister - (New Zealand)

I loved the bright colours this month so chose Photo Play "Wiskers" paper range. I challenged myself further to use lots of "older" items from my stash such as flat flowers and brads. The chipboard circles represent string or wool which my cat loved to play with. This month marks a year since she went to kitty heaven.

The eyes of the cats really stood out to me in the inspiration painting so I've gone with that.

Jane Howden - (Australia)
Inspired by the bright happy colours and the cats (of course).
