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

Many, many thanks to you who have contributed already.

If you would like your Friendly Monster to join in the party with the other Soartful Monsters, please leave a comment here with a link to your artwork, and we will come and admire it.

Monsters are always bad and scary, aren't they?

All together now

"OH NO THEY'RE  NOT!!!!!!!".

Monsters can be friendly, good fun and just adorable.

Remember the films "Shrek"? and "Monsters Inc."?

And what about the Loch Ness Monster?

I made a Loch Ness Monster quiltlet.

This friendly Grokiza eats only red flowers

and the Paper-eating monster eats only paper.

Here's what the design team made.

Any form of art and craft is acceptable and if you don't have a blog you can leave another link to your art, for example to flickr.

You have until Friday 6th June to show your artwork and you can enter more than once.

Just leave a link to your friendly monster(s) in the comments below.

We're all looking forward to seeing and admiring your friendly monsters!

SIGNS OF SPRING! (shades of green, plus other colors of choice)

Here in the U.S., we're excited to see spring arrive! So, our Soartful theme for April is "Signs of Spring." What signals spring to you? Longer, day, warming temperatures, April showers, spring break, holidays, family traditions, the rebirth of nature? Please show us through the art you create for this challenge. Try to incorporate shades of green in your collage, as well as any other colors you choose.

We can't wait to see your springtime creations! Here are some Wikimedia Commons images to get you in a springtime mood; and below them, some inspiration art from our design team.
