Well finally I'm almost back in normal mode (almost) I managed to get a few challenges finished while the boys were out at the football today and goodness have I missed doing the challenges-

This one is for Artastic and the challenge is to use this painting by Vincent van Gogh

This happens to be one of my favourite paintings- and one I will really miss going to see at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Shazza also added the following criteria to the challenge
 a blue background
some white flowers
white or brown title letters

The picture reminded me of the fake blossoms I'd bought to go in our playroom against the newly painted wall so I took a photo of them and printed it out on a large scale to look like the picture- the LO then had to be about our new decoration at the house. I used some tiny punched flowers to look like blossom on a bakers twine branch


  1. What a great idea to photograph your arrangement! Just perfect for the challenge this month. Well done!
