ARTastic October Challenge

The inspiration for this month's challenge over at ARTastic Challenge Blog is The Green Parasol 1912, by E Phillips Fox, and the extra criterion is VINTAGE. I love this artwork and had such fun doing my Creative Team project because I'm mad about vintage scrapbooking.

This is what the artwork inspired me to do with one of my vintage photos.

This vintage layout is of my maternal great grandmother who passed away 45 years before I was born. I used this photo because I love the outfit, the hair do, and the formal setting of the photos of that time. It always makes me think of times long gone, which is the same effect I have when I look at the inspirational artwork. I’m so happy that I can combine my love of scrapbooking with my love of family history as I have done here. The lady in the painting looks so relaxed and casual, unlike my lady, but the idea of my great grandmother being surrounded by flowers pleases me. “The Green Parasol” also inspired my colour scheme.

Come on over to find out more about the artist and how the artwork inspired  the other Creative Team members. You have until the end of the month to join the challenge. We would love to see your work, and you could win a prize from Mystical Scrapbooks or Flourish with a Bling. You will also have a chance to win a random draw prize that will be donated by me this month, so I really hope to see plenty of entries.

Cheers and happy scrapping.
