There’s a new challenge up at ARTastic’s! This one is really a great one – both the painting to be inspired by and the criteria!!! You just have to check it out!

Here’s my DT layout:

And here’s the inspirational painting – Heart and Soul by Brenda York. The challenge is to be inspired by the painting and to include red hearts and a black and white picture on your layout. The layout should be monochromatic red with a touch of green.

I chose not to do a Valentine layout and instead I did a layout about DD loving to play with her dolls. The red in the painting is almost orange I think, but as the layout should be red I did it in a traditional red tone.

My red hearts are chipboards covered with modeling paste, gesso, glimmer mists and Distress Inks.

The “flowers/wheels” are handmade and inspired by the eye on the painting.

Hope you like this! I would love to see you entering the challenge over at ARTastic!!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments! Have a nice weekend!


  1. Tão lindo isso!!!
    Eu gostei muito do fundo da sua página texturizada,a intensidade da cor e arte que você fez.

  2. This is super Helene, great heats and LOVE the altered photo.

  3. Härligt kladdig layout, fast på ett lite subtilt sätt.

    Den lilla detaljen med charmen "play" och det rutiga bandet är super!
