Default MIX178 - The Chimera

So my friend Kat - beadfreak22 - does an art challenge with her mom & sister every week, and sometimes she shares them with us. She is incredibly creative, and I love seeing her take on the challenges. One in particular really grabbed me and made me laugh so I asked if I could base today's challenge on her end result. I call it "The Chimera" - specifically Chimera Cat!





She took different stamp images and put them together to form a new creature, and that is our challenge today! Get out your animals, people, monsters, whatever, and use masking or paper piecing to make them into a new hybrid creature! I think these would be fun in art journals, so remember, your creation doesn't have to be a card!

You need to use at least two mediums on your work and you need to have fun - I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's the gallery of fanciful creatures for this challenge.

The gallery link is wonky Lydia (goes to CC558 ). Great hybrids but your rabbit-headed strongman is particularly disturbing!

Heart MIX178 Patriotic Santa Bear

Took a stamped Santa with his sack image and sentiment, and added a bear in a party hat. This is to commemorate the coming of patriotic Santa Bear, who brings the children fireworks in his recycled green sack! Added some reverse dc stars and some shiny embellies. Here's Patriotic Santa Bear

Thought this would be a good combo- boy, does it like eating grass! Added some texture with a leaves embossing folder and my dc lower border. Here's Cowhopper
