Wrap Up - GC65: Famous Painters or Paintings

We were delighted with the superb submissions for our Famous Painters or Paintings challenge! Everyone had such creative ways to interpret our theme. Thanks to all who played! Your creations were all wonderfully artful!

The randomly drawn Home Page Artist this week is

Musings of a Chocoholic

inspired by Van Gogh's Sunflowers

Congratulations, Daniele. Your artwork will be showcased on the Home Page of the Gingersnap Creations Yahoo Group as well as on the sidebar on the blog.

Now onto our fabulous Ginger Gems. When each challenge closes, we also pick 7 Ginger Gems - fabulous creations that we feel really exemplify that challenge's objective. The Ginger Gems appear in a slide show in the blog sidebar for the entire week, as well as in this wrap-up post, and their creators have the honor of displaying this Ginger Gems blog badge.

For more information about Ginger Gems and entering our challenges, please visit the FAQ page.
