Thanks from Soartful

Thanks to everyone who joined the Soartful challenges this very first week. This was my try out week to see if folk would be interested in the challenges and i was overwhelmed with the response.
I was even more knocked out by the quality of work that has been submitted and thank you all sincerely for all that you have worked on in this first week.
This will be trial and error with me so i do hope you will keep on sending me to see your beautiful artwork as we venture into week 2

The pictures will remain at the side panel until the first of week 2 challenges is in and then all will be removed to make room for this weeks art

This is the first of your challenges ... there will be many and they will be random. I hope you will have a lot of fun.

I intend to throw out 3 challenges a week, you may enter any or all of them each week


Create some art using the theme of :

BERRIES - When completed please drop in here and leave a link to your blog so we can see your work - You could use this picture or any other image or method. I used a berry stamp but anything at all you use is fine as long as berries are in the work somewhere . Have fun !!!! ( sorry if i didnt explain it properly b4 and hope this clears it up )

I made the 'golden berries background using acrylic white paint. Then stamped and uninked berry stamp into the wet paint lots of times to get the pattern. then using inks in browns and gold and finally some mica pigment, I coloured it to the finished result
