all dressed up ...

Hello - hope your week is going well ☺  I'm here to share my inspiration for the challenge at ARTastic.

The requirements for the challenge are to have large, bold pattern paper or paint and below is the inspiration picture - by Emma Hack

Here is my page:
 I've gone with a similar colour palette to the painting.  My bold pattern paper is a Hambly transparency placed over a blue cardstock base - love the effect of this ☺ And I've used a very recent picture of me and my husband at a wedding we just attended.  Always nice to get a picture together ... all dressed up ☺  Here are some close-up's:
 ... Kaisercraft and Prima blooms ... swirls of cotton thread and string pearls ... also added in rhinestones and pearls ...
... yellow sticker letters by Prima ... the pattern cardstock is from My Minds Eye ...

Pop over to the ARTastic blog to see more inspiration for this fantastic challenge - we hope you will join us this month - great prizes up for the winner ☺
And sadly, this is my last post for ARTastic - I've been with this challenge blog for about 18 months and have really enjoyed the challenges each month.  So thank you Jane and the rest of the team - I hope to play along from the other side ☺
