ARTastic entry - Fly

The sun peeped out just now so I ran outside to photograph last night's creation. It's a layout for ARTastic's August challenge. The criteria was to use a ribbon, have a photo of a child playing and create your own background using paint. The painting inspiration is 'The Playing Claude Renoir' by Auguste Renoir.

Here is my entry called "Fly". It is of Mark piloting an army helicopter at the War Memorial in Canberra. Damon and I are passengers. I'm pleased with how all the colours and elements from so many different company's came together so well.

If you look at the 1" square underneath the ABC s of the title you'll see little helicopters on the paper.

Products used are:

Making Memories/Just Chillin'/Patchwork Boy pp
Crate Paper Toy Box CB
Orange paint
Creative Memories blue cardstock
Bo Bunny Back to Basics/Grease Monkey pp
Kaisercraft Long Ranger brads
MME Boo! To You! Candy Dots pp
WRMK Geo-Hectic/Light Board pp
Creative Memories blueberry ABCs
