ARTastics July inspiration will come to you by Butterflyfish by Carla Blackman


 ink on silk painting

A little about Carla Blackman

Carla Blackman, originally from Warwick in England, has travelled the world extensively, but is now a permanent resident of Far North Queensland, where she has made her home.
Based on the Cairns Northern Beaches, she has been greatly influenced by the vibrant colours of tropical reef fish, which she captures brilliantly on her silk originals.
Carla enjoys painting on silk as a medium since it is well suited to creative expression with bright colours. The vibrancy of the finished artwork is an appropriate reflection of her tropical environment.
Carla has work in private and corporate collections throughout the world. Her beautiful silk originals make an outstanding statement and add a touch of the tropics to any room.

NEW!! Archi-Scraps challenge site

Hi Ladies!

Just letting you all know that there is a new and exciting challenge blog called Arch-scraps founded by Julene Mathews. Archi-scraps challenge site is based on architecture and the exteriors of buildings.
You can find ARCH-SCRAPS challenge site HERE.

The first challenge uses the Duomo in Florence, pictured below.

You can go with the colours on it or the arched/circle shapes or perhaps the photo will inspire you to do something else.

Your layout doesn't have to feature architecture. This is just inspiration to get you started.

The date for completion of this challenge will be 15th July.

Here is my entry for the challenge called 'Cascading Waterfall'

(Yippee!! I won!!! psst...there were only two entries!) lol

 The Radisson Blu Resort Fiji on Denarau island is one of Fiji's luxury resorts.
The water court, located off the main complex overlooks the lagoon and 
Denarau's only cascading waterfall.

I took my inspiratio from the Duomo in the way of...Brown Hues and a large outstanding structure.

So come on Ladies, join in and give Julenes challenge a go!

Julene has a great prize up for grabs.....
