ARTastic ~ Gals Day Out...

YAY its Friday Already!!!

ONe of the good news that I wanna share is... I am the new DT over at ARTastic Blog Challenge...Wooohoo!!!... Mel O'Neil(thanks bestie) recommended me to try my luck for the DT call over at ARTastic Challenge blog!!! And I am truly honoured to be able to work with the rest of the team, Very talented ladies... (Thank you so much Shazza!!!) ... For most what I really like about ARTastic is ...I'm able to challenge myself working on a LO based on the painting...of course with couples of add-ons criteria. Which allow me to think more outta box!!!???

For June Challenge ...this is the painting to get inspiration from (awesome isn't it)...its a gorgeous painting called 'argenteuil' by Edouard Manet
 
So here I'm sharing my 1st LO...!!! YAY !!! And I really like this LO so much!!! SO FLUKE!!! Ideas just pop naturally!!!...
For extra points you also need to include for
1. Two people in the photo = ONE Point
2. Use striped paper= TWO Points
3.Include a boat somewhere...= THREE Points

Seriously the pastel blue and boat...were pretty much a challenge for me... I had to go online and bought these beautiful PP from Websters Pages... And as most of you’d know... WP..is not easy for me to work on... But I pretty much nailed it I THINK (clearing throat!!!)...I did lotsa fussy cutting as WP PP is pretty as it is…some distressing with TH walnut distressing ink…Add on banner.. for the striped paper… and see my “boat” on the left…!!! YAY I really like this!!! HAHA





PP: Websters Pages Yacht Club Collection
Fussy Cutting - WP flowers, Studio Calico
AC Foam Thickers, Jane Doodle Stamps
Tim Holtz Walnut Distressed ink
Kaisercraft Sailing tickets

And I really hope you ladies can join in the fun with me over at June ARTastic Challenge... Since it’s my 1st month... show me the love! (wink) **And if you play along for the 1st time.. do mention my name... I'd get an extra DT points for that**... hugs...xoxo

And yes don’t forget to join me over at ScrapbookersAnonymous June Challenge… as well… Please POP over HERE

Thank you so much ladies for all your love and sweet comments!! It really means the world to ME!

**Pssst I know SUPER LONG POST!!!* Sorry if I bored you ladies...xoxo
