August Challenge - Anything Goes

Welcome to the Bleeding Art Challenge Blog! We're not only all mixed media all of the time but anything goes all of the time!

Create a mixed media project - anything you'd like, no special theme or subject! But be sure to check the rules page beforehand so you know what kinds of projects we accept and the requirements for your entry. Those not complying won't be considered in judging!

Before we go any further, I want to bid a fond farewell to our DTs Linda Simpson and Lindsey Hall.  They've been with us since the very beginning and I appreciate their support and work and talent!

I also want to introduce 3 new members to the team! You can visit their blogs/sites to get to know them better - or you might already know them!

We've got June's winner back with a fab project! Meet Elly!

Hello, my name is Elly and I live with my husband in The Netherlands, 3 km from the border of Germany. For me, crafting is a  compensation of missing my grandchildren and to fill my days as a retired woman.  I love all sorts of crafting. I started with making cards but I  discovered mixed media and love to try all different mediums. My project for this challenge is with a message for myself that, when the light of Christ comes into your heart, it  breaks the walls we have made around our heart so that we can become free...

Greetings, Elly

Thanks so much, Elly, for being our guest designer - beautiful project and message! You can see more about this project on Elly's blog!
