ARTastic November Challenge

Look at the beautiful inspirational piece this month over at ARTastic Challenge Blog. It's called "Weeds" and it's by Emma Uber. You can use this piece any way you like to inspire your project as long as you use flowers on your work.

I adore Emma Uber’s “Weeds”. Far from weeds, I see a beautiful portrait surrounded by gorgeous coloured flowers. The image is so fresh, and colours are so happy, that I decided to scrap myself in a similar situation. 

I used this photo of myself because it was taken at my youngest son’s graduation, and I think my face shows how happy and proud I was. I blended my face into the background and surrounded myself with flowers and butterflies. Like Uber’s piece, I wanted to look like an integral part of the surroundings. I'm obviously much older than the subject of Emma Uber's piece so I used vintage style garden embellishments to suit the photo more. I still think it looks bright and happy though. 

Come on over and learn more about Emma Uber and see how her artwork inspired the other Creative Team members.  We would also 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 one of our Creative Team members.

Thank you for stopping by :)
