Our LAST Challenge

Hi faithful Soartful followers.
We have some sad news to share with you...
We have decided
to close Soartful, with this, our very last challenge:

Our very first challenge for our wonderful blog was on
October 23rd, 2009.

So this ends almost exactly 5 full years of glorious artistic abandon!
During that time, we have had some wonderful Design Team Members,
each of whom have shared of themselves generously.
and more importantly,
we have been blessed with
generous sharing of your own magical creativity.
We have developed some
new and very special friendships along the way.
We cannot thank you enough.

Life is a series of changes, is it not?
And we have found that there are other things in our lives
competing for our attention.
Perhaps one of you will recreate Soartful
in another form?
(We'll be the first to participate)

We hope you will participate in our final challenge
with an 
creation of your very own, and
we know we will see you in blogland somewhere soon.

so very much!

Here are some send-off inspiration pieces from the DT:

Hello Soartful friends.

It's Sheila here, and this month I've chosen "The Motor Car" as our theme.
I think you all know what a motor car looks like.

Here are a couple from the web.

Here's what I've made

and here are motor cars from others in the design team.

Mine is a motor "truck" actually.
Cus that's what I drive.  :-)

I hope you enjoy making artwork for this theme which runs until Friday 3rd October.

Please leave a link to your art in the comments below and we'll come over and admire it.

It would also be very nice if you would visit at least three of the other participants, and leave a comment.

August Challenge: Eyeglasses/Spectacles

We do a lot with our eyes. We see, observe, perceive, notice, spot, glimpse, view, look, stare, glance, ogle, peek, peer, examine, study, inspect, recognize, identify.  I thought it would be fun to create art with the theme of "eyeglasses" or "spectacles," which many of us rely on to do all of the above. Serious or whimsical art, your choice.  And the color scheme is your choice, too, this month. Can't wait to "see" what you create!
Below are two Wikimedia Commons images, and some inspiration from our design team. Have fun!

July Feathers! Bright Saturated Colours

Hi folks!
Are you having a good summer?
I hope so.
Or a good winter, if you are in that part of the world.
Did you know in Canada, we spell some words differently than they do in the USA?
We put a "U" in it.
I just can't write it without the "U".
Colour evokes all sorts of things for me,
happy, vibrant, joyous musings
It makes me think of music.
And music makes me think of birds.
And birds (this time) made me think of
So that our theme for July

Here is some inspiration for you,
from Pinterest and our talented Soartful Design Team
