Our monthly challenge blog is all about mixed media projects - the only thing we don't accept are scrapbook layouts! We want to see imaginative creations, totally off the page and unique - nothing cookie cutter-looking here! Everyone's project will be ooh'd and ahh'd - no randomly picked winners! We know you put work and effort into your art so it deserves to be looked at!

It's always anything goes but occasionally, we might throw in a theme or requirement so read the description carefully before entering!

  • Create a mixed media assemblage/collage/altered art project, etc using at least 2 mediums. Mediums can include, but aren't limited to, pastes, paints, inks, sprays, stamps, stencils, clay, paper, etc.
  • Use anything you want: recycled/upcycled items, found objects, homemade/store-bought bases, canvases, bottles, shadowboxes, books - use your imagination. Just make sure it's NOT a scrapbook layout!
  • You can enter 2 projects a month. Just add your projects separately using the Linky tool. You can combine unlimited entries with other challenges. 
  • Only link the blog post with the project, not your whole blog. And no backlinking before the date of the challenge! Please turn off word verification! And if you're on a site that requires log-in to comment, you may not receive a comment!
  • Add a link back to our blog somewhere in your post
  • We'll select a winner and 3 runner's up and present you with some cool badges to display! And the winner will be invited to be a guest designer!
  • We'd love if you'd follow us! 
  • Entries not complying will not be considered.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE A BLOG, NO PROBLEM! Simply link to your project and mention our blog with a link back!

A NOTE ABOUT PICKING WINNERS: Every project is looked at! And we all have different tastes and look for different things that are appealing or that make one project more appealing than another. We never use a program to randomly pick a winner. If you don't win, you can keep trying! You get exposure as visitors to the blog will look at your entry as well. And you get to hone your mixed media skills - competition makes you try different things and stretches your creativity. We appreciate every one that enters! If you've won recently, we want to give others a chance as well! Some of you could be the winner every month so understand that we can't keep picking the same person! We want to share the love, prizes, and talent!
