We're back....

Our trip to the Gold Coast was wonderful... but seriously not long enough ;) the weather was fabulous and there was so much more we wanted to do but simply ran out of time.
The boys loved all the theme parks- especially wet n' wild

After getting home and I was faced with a mountain of scrapping projects I have yet to complete but decided to put it all aside and worked on some arty stuff instead... which is just what I needed and got another page done in my art journal for the Blue Bazaar challenge
And this strange looking painting is actually a self portrait lol - done for Gary Reef's challenge where you could only use blue, green, yellow and white to do the portrait. I really like the colour combo and use it alot in my scrapping but found it pretty difficult to use these colours in a portrait and think mine's a bit alien looking....
but hey it's art ;) Inspired by this photo - taken by John De Lambardo
Also forgot to add this earlier - this is my version of Van Gogh's Sunflowers - scrapping style! again for a Gary Reef challenge
Hope you're all having a great week
Aga xx
