ARTastic March 2016 - The Place We Call Home:

Good morning [well, in Australia!!] friends!
Today it's time to show you the new ARTastic challenge for March.
The CRITERIA is WOOD VENEER. Here is the inspiration picture:
This is created by Maria Taninaka. 
My inspiration comes from the browns and blues, & natural
wood look. I've added a 'pop' of the yellow and pink. as well:)
 There is plenty of wood! It was a great excuse to get it out & USE it!!
The 'ahoy' comes from Mitra P.
Below, a few birds.... since the art picture has one;) And the house, which I've
had for ages finally found a home.... [SOZZY...puns...]
it's a Happy Scatters one:
 I used washi that fitted the colours in the picture. I've outlined
the alphas to make them stand out against this woodgrain paper:

 This page is A4 - one of those I hang inside on a little A4 hanger in our lounge
so that we can enjoy them!
Do you like this inspiration picture? Have you wood veneers that are 
asking to be used up?
Hoping you can use them on our ARTastic challenge this month!
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
