Welcome to May ...

This year we are making some changes to our challenges which I hope you will all enjoy. During 2022 our inspiration is coming to you from ART ROOMS (aka store window displays). Just bear in mind that these are actual window displays, mostly behind glass, so the images may not be as clear and crisp as our previous artwork images.

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – it may be the colours, or the overall style or perhaps there is a specific item you see that you can replicate on your page.  Maybe you like a background pattern or a shape in the display or want to use photos that match the theme.  We’d love to hear what jumped out at you!

And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
I raided my stash of green & blue scraps to create another page for the 3 Girls' Road Trip album.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
Inspired by the colours and the use of stripes.  I decided to go with paint instead of my original idea of washi.

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)

Took my inspiration from the background vertical strips and the huge array of plants, that are waiting to be watered!

Karen Guy (Australia)
Loved these colours, of course washi tape came to mind!  Ran with the garden theme.

Jane Howden - (Australia)
Inspired by the vertical stripes, the colours and the garden theme.  I used silver square brand to replicate the plant pots.

Our monthly prize winner is selected by random draw - so anyone could be a winner, you just have to be in it to win it!

May prize

 Please upload your entries directly to the monthly album in our Facebook public group (ARTastic challenges) by midnight on the last day of the month - please remember we are an Australian based challenge so do check your day and time.  All entries must be new for this challenge and the original work of the entrant.  You may combine entries with a sketch challenge only. 

We hope you might find time to play along with our new style challenge.
