Artist's Play Room #8

I'm having such fun doing the Artist's Play Room every week, I sure hope you're all enjoying the weekly challenges as much as I am. As always I'll show you last week's entries from the challenge then we'll move on to our shiny new theme for this week! Are you ready? Do you have your tea or coffee or (god forbid) diet coke ready?? No? I'll wait...

Ready now? Yes? GOOD. (I'm nothing if not accomodating, lol.) Here we go!

Title: "Midnight In The Garden"
I'm not totally thrilled with this piece,
it just seems to be missing something. But
I'm using it as my piece this week as I'm
under the weather and just haven't got the
energy to do something else. Sorry.
Victoria used a photo
to create a beautiful
piece of art. I love
the starling looking
so forlorn. Lovely.
Minnemie has submitted a
wonderful abstract using
many shades of gray. I
love that It makes me
think then an elephant
shows up!
This is a beautiful photo
by Carol. The sun shining
through the clouds is lovely.
Vonny has used blues
and white to bring
the theme to light,
pun intended. he's
Tracey is from Australia
where Vegemite is a popular
toast spread,her blog post
is so funny, great piece!
This is a beautiful
example of being in the
right place at the right
time. You're a great photo-
grapher Tracy, this is
just lovely.
Nordljus did a
spectacular job on
this facial art
piece. It's very
Andrea made a beautiful
mandala in shades of gray.
I find it hauntingly
Dion painted a shelf that
she's using to hang her keys
I love the colors! She used
a new product called Silks,
acrylics with mica for
sparkle. WOW.
Gloria did a zentangle,
I'd say that totally fits
dark and light, lol. 
Diane did a beautiful job
interpreting light & dark.
I always love her landscapes
Cindy added shading to her
lovely flower to bring
out the dark and light theme
Terri has made a fabric
collage that was shown
in Featuring Magazine.
Congratulations Terri!

If you've landed here after this challenge has been completed but would like to participate in a current or future Artist's Play Room Challenge, just either click on the APR button in the sidebar or click here and you'll be taken to the latest APR Challenge!

Are you having trouble using the Mr. Linky to add your submissions to APR? Well here's some help! Just click on HELP and you'll be taken to my Linky Help Page. Cool, huh? I've got your back!
Hmmm, now we need a new theme. Hmmm. Well, when I think of Spring I always think of fresh strawberries. That makes me think of a good theme. "Be inspired by Food". I don't care if you draw me a rutabaga or you make a Carmen Miranda "hat" with all that fruit piled high. And if produce isn't your thing, how about using the COLORS of fruit in a piece of art or collage all your favorite types of teas using their tea bag labels. You could also draw, digitally create or collage vintage food can labels, that would be cool. Hey! You could use pasta and do one of those pasta art pieces glued to cardboard. Go crazy, find your inspiration from the grocery store. Enjoy and don't eat your creation before you take a picture of it!

Here are some examples just to get you going...
