Welcome to November and a final challenge ...

Welcome to November. I am sorry to say this will be our final challenge as I have made the difficult decision to give ARTastic a bit of a break – at least for the next twelve months. I will review this decision at the end of 2023.

Thank you so very much for all your amazing support and delightful submissions. I have enjoyed creating challenges for all of you over the past 10 years.

My sincere gratitude to the very many talented ladies who have been part of our creative team – I could not have done it without you and your fantastic submissions and your positive reinforcement and encouragement has inspired me always.

We sincerely hope you will join in with us for this final challenge.

 Do you love the use of green and wood, inspired by the jungle scene or like the way items are draped in this room or perhaps have zoo or rainforest photos you need to scrap?

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – 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 jungle vibe, and I made a double-page, rainforest-themed layout.

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
I saw a double page spread, so that's what I created. Mostly green, with some brown and jungle themed. I used paint, nuvo drops, kinda glitz, die-cuts and stickers and added a flair.

Karen Guy (Australia)
My inspiration was of course the gorgeous green and it just looked like long green leaves!

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
I took my inspiration from the jungle animals and did a zoo page! This is my eldest son on a kinder trip to the zoo way back in 1989!

Jane Howden - (Australia)

I was inspired to create a double page of rainforest photos of a recent trip.  I picked up the green, yellow and touch of orange from the ARTroom.

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!


 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 final challenge.
