In fairness to all members that participate, can everyone PLEASE ensure that you read all the rules for this challenge so that you can claim your challenge points fairly. Thank you! :)


Hi everyone! Ona here for the October (yes! October already!!!) Artist Inspiration Challenge.

This month I have a piece created by Karen Knutson. Karen has some really gorgeous abstract art on her site and if you are interested please use THIS LINK to go to her site and have a look at some of her art!

The one I picked to use today is an abstract of a bird.

Important Note: Please do not extract or use any part of the original art work shown, you should only be looking at it for inspiration, not copying, but creating your own work based on an idea you gained from looking at this piece. :)

What drew me to this piece initially were the pretty colours and the various shapes that I could see in the background. I started my layout using some similar shapes but the my muse took me down a different path! :) I ended up using the initial pretty pinks colours that I liked and the circle shapes.

I started out focusing on the circle and bird. This is a such a cute photo of my DD's pet rats snuggled together in a tissue box with a geometric/circular pattern that I thought would be a good fit for this challenge. I used lots of circles, lines, and shapes layered on my page.

I was struck by the birds when I saw the inspiration piece.

yay! Chris and Jan, what great pages and love how the original piece inspired you both in different ways! :)

This type of thing is definitely a challenge for me but I must admit, with the right kit I really like how this turned out! I was inspired by the water coloring as well as the circle frame up in your image doing that in my layout on my photo. Thank you for the challenge!

As I understand it we have to use the page you chose for inspiration rather than choosing our own? Loved your page!

Liz, yes, take your inspiration from the first image by the artist Karen Knutson....... what inspired me was the image of the bird, the circle shapes and the watercolour. :)

Glori, love your page, how did the artist's image inspire you? You need to let us know in this thread. :)

What caught my eye first were all the shapes and lines. I hope I got this challenge right.
