ARTastic March 2013: THAT LOOK

This months challenge comes from Australian portrait artist Julia Sattout. Its a beautiful portrait of a little girl in pink. Fortunately the criteria this month is only 'portrait' as we don't have many little girls or PINK around here. I couldn't resist this photo of Daren with a look that I see often...

ARTastic Feb 2013 - Boys on the Beach

It's been a while since I did an ARTistic challenge, but this based on Charles Meere's painting "Australia Beach Pattern" presented an easy challenge of a beachy layout.
Again using older photos, this time Aidan at 10, Leigh at 8 1/2 playing on the beach at Phillip Island (Jan 1996).

Soul Scrappers: SSQ15 - 9 Shades of Daren

I love these SSQ challenges, you get a small package of items to make up a layout - you never know what you are getting and the challenge invites you to use ALL the items.

To get this layout, my long suffering DH was very cooperative with a photo shoot. I'm really happy with the result.

Soul Scrappers - THC 57 "The Heat & The Flies"

Liz has set us a double challenge this month, to use a minimum 5 photos with a holiday/travel theme.
Daren and I ventured to Mt Kosciuzsko in January, during a heat wave, where only the flies were enjoying themselves. Amazing scenery, bloody flies!!

Soul Scrappers - WC18 "Believe"

Mary's last word challenge before she sets us a new challenge thread. This time the word was BELIEVE. I've used some recent photos of Leigh, taken on Christmas Day, 2012.

Soul Scrappers SC60 "I am 5"

Another sketch Challenge, and another layout using older photos, this time of Aidan celebrating his 5th birthday (some 21 years ago!!)
