Winner, Winner - Chicken Dinner!

No - no chicken dinner, sorry..... but - for July, the winner gets this!

I will tell you who that is in a minute - firstly, look at this!

WOW… almost a complete circle rainbow on Bruny Island thanks to Chasing Light - Photography by James Stone who says:

I've never seen as many as I did whilst at Cape Bruny Lighthouse, sometimes up to a dozen a day, including this almost completely circular one.


Isn't that something else! A round rainbow! It is probably taken from a drone.
Bruny Island is an island off the south-east coast of Tasmania (an island) and that is an island off the coast of Australia (another island)......

This is my photo of the same area taken in June, showcasing the actual lighthouse! 
A beautiful day but no rainbows!

These are the rocks at the end of the point - again, my photo. 

Enough, you cry - who won in July!

Well it was:

and it is a picture of a lighthouse - spooky eh!!!

The DT favorite was: 30 - Less is More
beautiful work with stencils

Keeping to the spooky theme - look at her butterfly! Remember that!
Congratulations to both crafters - fabulous work indeed. 

Now, we have some inspiration for you to encourage you to enter our current challenge

Collage, collage, collage...

A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippingsribbonspaint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas.

TWIST venture into multi- media
