Hi everyone. My name is really Sharon and I am pretty new here.
I am very excited to be bringing you this month's photography based challenge.
I take literally thousands of photos of all sorts of things and hope I can inspire you to make some digital art.

Here is this month's photo. - you can get larger size here. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/demiurgia/7195528884/in/photostream/)
The challenge is to use this as your inspiration. It is my personal photo and you can either use it in your layout/art journal page/ digital art OR use it as your inspiration and tell us all about it when you post. You could be inspired to take a photo of your own or be creative with the theme, color etc. Most of all have fun.

Participants will receive a coupon to choose one of my 4 Patterned Paper Packs. you can see the 4 of them here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=29_206&sort=20a&alpha_filter_id=80).

When I saw the photo, I knew what was going to feature in my layout- this clematis is dominating our garden at the moment with its big flowers

Thanks for this challenge Sharon, and I really loved your photo! It inspired me to look back though my own photos and find one that I hadn't yet used. I'm always stopping to take pictures of nature, but sometimes forget to use them in layouts.

Here's mine (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=108206&title=appreciate-nature&cat=502)

Beautiful camellia. I used to have about 5 bushes at a previous house and I miss them so much. I have grown a couple but they are still small and the conditions don't suit as well.
Thanks so much for joining in and I am very glad I could give you some inspiration. :wink:
