When I studied art at college I found that the more I learnt about a particular work of art, the more I would love it. Consequently, choosing just one for this challenge was not easy, in fact it was impossible and I ended up choosing two. You can find out more about the inspiration for my projects, as well as how I made them, over on my BLOG.

Salvador Dali has always been one of my favorite artists, and while his works are usually of a brighter variety, I took inspiration from his painting "Butterfly Book" – and here is my take. I hope you can see the inspiration in my piece. Please check out my BLOG for more details.

My art master Inspiration is Pop Art. I went to the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit a couple years ago at the Art Institute of Chicago. My my project is inspired by him. Please visit my BLOG for more details!

The thing that came to my mind right away was to do something with old photos I took while in the mountains years ago. A sort of "Ansel Adams" inspired project. Perhaps photography wasn't the exact thing in mind when the prompt was decided upon by the challenge coordinators, but I certainly think that there are Master Photographers. Those that are religious might say that the gorgeous scenery all around us in our world was masterfully created by their God. Thus, my project inspired by Masters :) Stop by my BLOG to see what I repurposed, and how, for my project this month.


We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your "Inspired by the Masters" creations and we hope that you will join in and share them with us! Stop back next Sunday to see more of our Design Team creations!
