October 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!

We've got August's winner back with a great project! Meet Evelyn!

Hello lovelies -  my name is Evelyn. I live in a small village in Germany near Munich. I've been crafting my whole life, and tried out many techniques and I even chose a profession where I can be creative - I am a teacher of handicraft and home economics.  Years ago, I was askedby my colleagues to make the birthday cards for everyone. So I discovered the world of stamping and switched to Mixed Media. Now, I am in some Design Teams and it really makes me happy. I love to create with all different mediums - I´m a little bit addicted to stencils and stamps and all the wonderful mediums. I love to try out new things and in the last few years drawing and painting, especially faces, takes more room in my artwork.

Some weeks ago, I took part in a workshop with the wonderful Anna Dabrovska (finnabair) in Munich. I enjoyed the workshop very much. So for the everything goes theme here at Bleeding Art, I decided to make a canvas in the "finnabair-way".

If you want to see, how I made this, please visit my blog.  You can find me at FacebookInstagram, and YouTube!

Thanks so much, Evelyn, for being our guest designer - awesome project! And we do hope you'll visit her on her social media sites!
