Welcome to March ...

Our inspiration this month comes to you from Lisa Frances Judd with Come fly with me.

CRITERIA -  Monochromatic (any colour)

A little about Lisa Frances Judd ...

 Lisa lives and works from her home Art Studio in the beautiful Blue Mountains NSW, Australia.  A full-time Artist for almost a decade her paintings are diverse in nature. The main theme of all Lisa’s art is nature, colour and playfulness. Mostly working in acrylics, she also incorporates texture pastes, impasto and collage elements from time to time. Many of Lisa’s original paintings grace art collections, homes and offices around the world.

And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Dale Tiernan -  (Australia)

Karen Guy (Australia)
The painting inspired all things green, a holiday photo from Scotland, where all things are green...

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
Tanya, Kerry and I had a WONDERFUL day creating with 'Finnabair' (11th Nov 2018). I added some of the metal and plastic pieces to my page that we used to create our canvases!

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
I loved the wide open spaces in the painting, so I went with an outdoor theme with lots of BLUE. My layout was created using 100% Kaisercraft product.

Annemarie Caister - (New Zealand)
I chose teal as my monochromatic colour, inks, heat embossed chipboard, papers, flowers and ribbon from my stash.

Karen McLaughlin - (Australia)

Jane Howden - (Australia)
I was inspired to use some patterned paper displaying words and went with a brown toned colour base.  TIP - Have a "Mom" or two in your stash?  A kraft knife can quickly turn that "O" into a usable "U" for those of us downunder.

Our main prize winner is selected by random draw - so anyone could be a winner, no matter your style or your level of experience or your country of residence. If there are more than 8 entries in the month a second prize (donated each month by one of our team) will be drawn.
