Welcome to July ...

Welcome to our July challenge and our new ART room this month. Lots of different colours to select from - like games? - we have you covered!

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 took my inspiration from the board game theme - I used dominoes and spots and a light blue background.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
I've used the colours, especially light blue background. I have squares, like the domino shape. Also included luck.

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
I was inspired by the domino display window and used domino patterned paper as my background. I went with a game I loved playing during Covid isolation with my family! 
Karen Guy (Australia)
I was inspired by the Chess pieces and colours in this window display, they were perfect for this photo I had of the Grandchildren playing with the large Chess board in the park!

Jane Howden - (Australia)
I was inspired by the colours of brown and blue and the dominos as we all love playing this game at home.

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!
