Categories: Art of the Week

Thank you to everyone who took the time to play along this month, when we are all so busy.  There was lots of lovely eye candy around the blogs as usual.  I really fell in love with this piece by Gillian, so have chosen it to feature as art of the month this month! Congratulations, Gillian!

The challenge this month is to create a piece that reflects this season for you. It might be something to do with Christmas or Hannukah, or it might be simply a wintry or summery piece.  It’s up to you to interpret the theme in any way that suits you.  Have fun!

Art of the Month – Boxing Clever

What a lot of amazing art for this theme.  Thanks to Carol for being a guest host and giving us all such a wonderful challenge. I was very disappointed that I couldn’t complete my piece in time. As usual there were plenty of contenders for art of the month, but in the end Zuzu’s amazing box won the day! Congratulations, Zuzu!

This week Carol is here for the first time to host a challenge for us.  She has chosen “boxing clever” as your challenge prompt, and created this amazing box to inspire us all.  This challenge simply means you need to use some sort of box in your piece – that could mean an altered box, a handmade box, a shadow box.  Or you could draw a box in your piece or made a card with a box stamp on it.  This is, as always, entirely open to however you’d like to interpret it. Have fun being “boxing clever”!  And remember, you have until the end of November to get your piece finished and posted on our blog.
