Design Team call for new challenge blog

We are about to launch a new blog for Mixed Media and Altered Art style challenges and we are looking for some members to join the existing ladies who are on this team.

As a design team member you will need to make one project a month, comment on the challenge entries we receive and when it's your turn choose a winner and Top 3 or 5 (depending on how well we do). Obviously the more of us there are, the less frequently your turn will come round!

If you think you might be interested and like this style of design then please add your name to the linky list below, linking to your favourite mixed media, altered art, art journal page, decorated item etc. project on your own blog. If you want to make something specifically for this then that's fine too.

We look forward to visiting your blogs.

Just in case you are wondering if your style meets what we are looking for, this is our definition of what we are after, and will be on the new blog for all entrants to see as well.

Mixed Media is basically whatever you want it to be. In general terms it is usually taken to mean a mixture of mediums in one piece, so you could of course argue that paper and embellishments on a card are mixed media. However for the purposes of this challenge blog we want to see anything other than cards, and also for the purposes of this challenge blog our definition of mixed media is a mixture of any of the following and more besides:-

Texture paste, Gesso, inks both spray and from inkpads, embossing powders, paints, chalks, gilding wax, and gilding flakes. Found items such as old keys, buttons (granny's button box is a great place to look for some fabulous old and intricate buttons), zip pulls, zips, recycled cans, bottles, boxes etc.

You tube is a great resource for inspiration as are pinterest and of course other blogs.

With the challenges we set we will be wanting to see your canvasses, art journals, altered books, decorated wooden and mdf items, albums, upcycled pieces, recyled pieces and we are sure you can think of dozens more ideas both for things to create and things to create them with.

We will not be accepting digital art as mixed media, we want to see you get down and dirty, or at the very least physically make something rather than generating it on a pc.

So come on get messy, arty and join in the fun. 

If in doubt, apply anyway!

This call will stay open until we have filled the team quota.

  4. Hope in this case a backlink to a former project is okay for you, because this shows the mixed-media-technique at best! Hope you enjoy it!
