I'm really loving the Craft Barn's Alphabet Challenge. I love that it has a theme, that all my pictures are in one book, that you are only limited by your imagination, as we will be going through every letter in the alphabet of course and so, every word is available for us to use.

Some weeks I'm happy with my page and other weeks...not so....this week happens to be a not so happy week! Not loving the blue paint I added behind the blue spots.

Anyway, I thought I would try out some Aboriginal art inspired by some pictures I saw on the internet, my version of a sun blazing over Ayers Rock....thinking about it now I should have used more orange colours for the rock, to make things a bit more realistic but I had the pink/red tissue paper to hand and went with that. Making the dots was quite relaxing, much like doodling I guess.

  1. I think this is incredible. It's also a wonderful word that I'm sure others won't think of. And of course, the doodles are mesmerizing.

  2. I think this is such an original piece. I don't think the background blue spoils it at all it has mixed with the yellow in places and adds to the drama of the piece. Great word choice.

  3. What a great idea! I think the bluer background makes the orange stand out much better!

  4. I like the bit of blue in the background - blue and orange are complementary colours, so the blue makes the orange zing! (I learnt that in my art classes!)

  5. A wonderful arty page. The picture does remind me of aboriginal art, the sun in particular is really quite stunning. This page is very dramatic and also very attractive. Well done you!

  6. A fabulous page. Your choice of colours evokes the heat from the sun.

  7. Wow I love this. You can almost feel the heat scorching down. Lovely colours, the perfect style for the subject, brilliant x

  8. Wow this is awesome. I love it :)

  9. Wow, beautiful page! You should not be unhappy with it! Thank you for entering The Craft Barn Challenge.
