Here is my page for the latest challenge at Archi-scraps. 
You can find the challenge HERE

 Here is the Mood board.
The building in the picture is in Dubai.

Your challenge is to use ONLY THE COLOURS IN THIS MOOD BOARD.
(with neutrals such as black, white or Kraft)

My page has the distressed background rectangles which reflect the front of the resort buildings and the rectangle outside areas.
Just love these colours....I think they are a close match!

A page I did a while ago but have never entered it in a challenge, just waiting for the right chance!
Today was the day! :)


...and a close up!

Archi-scraps - Awesome Foursome

The challenge this month at Archi-scraps is Chevrons and the colour Blue

Castello di Sammezzano
This castle looks sedate on the outside but on the inside? It’s an explosion of color and texture. The 16th century masterpiece of architecture and design sat abandoned in Tuscany, Italy, for decades.


Here is my interpretation of the challenge..

Awesome Foursome

and a close up

I added blue chevron felt behind the blue picture frames.

Thankyou for such a great challenge this month
Julene and all the Design Team gals!

Artastic - Soul Girls

The February inspiration at 'Artastic Challenge Blog' is something a little different - this lovely ceramic piece by Jill Foster called Fringe Faces

The criteria is GIRLS only

 Here is my take on the challenge called....
'Soul Girls just wanna have FUN'


 Little girls always seem to have so much fun when they are together, 
so I thought adding our adult heads to little girls bodies would look awesome.

I really love how this turned out, I'm sure we would all be great friends if we ever got together as a group.

I love how Mary has put her arms around Lori and my shoulders...lol

Soul girls are...Libby, Kaz, Cheryl, Lori, Mary and me (Shazza)

Thanks for a great challenge Jane and her Artastic team.
