ARTastic NOVEMBER challenge - FLOWERS are involved...

Hullo there! Our new ARTastic CHALLENGE is live!
How's this for a  RIPPER of an inspiration picture, c/- EMMA UBER.
You also need to use FLOWERS on your creation:
I used some paper I'd already created using left over paints and masks, which seemed PERFECT
for this challenge.
Then added some yellow gelato as well, to get the same sort of look as the picture.
I also basically used the same design:
Can you see the design? I was SOOO blessed when Sandra, my scrappy mate,
& her hubby came by to visit us ~ we scrapped and explored our area & had a
FABULOUS time!!! 
 I'm really not a flower peep....& you need to use flowers, so I stamped some on the bg.
I've popped a few little 'bits' around - like the vellum anchor above & the
'fun' word below. The streaks of colour are nail polish, flicked over the page:
 I smudged black gelato around the photo, to mimick the 'dark' part of the girl in the painting...
 And there are lots of Glimmer Glaze splots as well as some ink splots as well:)
Hoping you get all inspired to join us this month in our ARTastic CHALLENGE!
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  5. It's November, so you can get on with the challenges! Yay! - it must have been hard for you over the last month. Clever girl to get those flowers on the page without actually putting "real" flowers on the page. Love that flower stamp and the mood board is a cracker :D

  11. Love this challenge theme (not ready for Christmas yet!!!). And your project is SUPER Lizzy. So enjoying all your bright colors and designs. The picture is just perfect because your layout makes me think of coloring - when we were little - with a friend. Your flowers, dots and colors look just like something free and easy and fun back when we had no inhibitions! REALLY FUN!!! j.
