Default Picasso Challenge for December

Hello everybody !
Wow I cannot believe it is December already ! In November only 6 Ladies decided to take part in the challenge and paint some stitches , maybe it was too difficult or maybe you didn't have time to create it or maybe you didn't like my posting bonus :-) I decided to give a spacial praise for those Ladies who decided to paint some stitches . Ladies- Jan Merkley, Lynncal , djean, AJR65, lovesart,shadowsmom -go to my store and leave me here a note which of my new Christmas products would you like to receive ,it will be my little Christmas gift for you .You can choose : 4 Christmas trees , Layered edges NO6 , Christmas Word ArtChristmas Frames, Christmas papers , Angel papers or First Star. I will send a link to the kit you have chosen and a link to your November Christmas bonus . Happy HO HO !


and here is a challenge for you this month:
Let's paint a Christmas Tree !!!( it can be a really a very very little one :-)Just like on my page , I have painted four little Christmas trees in the left corner.
You can use digital graphics program tools such us:an oil brush, a chalk,a pastel,a colored pencil, a marker. We do not use the scanned doodles, Christmas tree shapes ,Christmas tree brushes.

Rules:
1. You can use any digital item from any designer... no restrictions!
2. You have to draw by yourself a Christmas Tree !
3.Post it in the Picasso Challenge Gallery and post your link back here, so we can all leave you some love!
Everyone who participates will receive a gift from me .and because of the coming Christmas this posting bonus is bigger than previous bonuses.It contains 5 papers and 11 elements.
Hugs ,
AneczkaW

Default Thank you

You are so sweet to offer another wonderful gift for doing last month's challenge, which was really so much fun and a pleasant learning experience. When I am looking for a unique way of framing something I will know that I only have to look as far as my own talent now.

I would love to have your First Star which I think will add beautiful accents and will add a touch of delicate bling to clusters also. I have already made one Christmas tree for this month and only need to find the layout to go with it now so I can earn your beautiful posting bonus.

Once again, Thank You!!

I didn't get to do your challenge last month... internet issues! I loved the bonus and really wanted it! Will you put it in the store so those of us that couldn't participate last month can still get it? I hope togetree done this month... but don't hold your breath... I can tell this month is going to busy!

In addition to doing this Picasso challenge, I also did the Desktop challenge. Well, while playing around in Photoshop this morning, I decided to combine the two challenges and came up with this...

Hi, just checked this last night as I've been so busy. Thank you for offering those of us that posted last month a free gift. Everything is pretty, but I would like the First Star mini kit. I'm going to try your challenge for this month. You are really streching me on these challenges. Thank you for all your work.

You are making me stretch. These are not tools that I normally use, but I was happy with my attempt and think I need to be playing around more with these tools. Thank you for the challenge. Here is mine.

This is my first "Picasso Challenge", so, I'm not real positive I did this right. I just went abstract. I veered away from the traditional colors, as did Picasso. I thank you for looking. My "interpretation" is a ready for one of your own images, if you like. I included the link, below, to download.

See "Trees" here:

http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.c...5&limit=recent

Download it here:

Happy Holidays to Everyone!
