It's hard to believe it's been almost ten years (in February) but we have our 500th mixed media MIX-Ability challenge today - we hope you'll join us!
Here are the host team's feelings about this amazing challenge:
"I like the mixed media challenge because it stimulates my creativity. Makes me look at things more artistically. The MIX-ability challenges made me realize that I had been doing mixed media all along and just didn’t realize it." - ~MariLynn
"I have always liked the “look” of mixed media, but didn’t like the idea of the mess I assumed it created. Once I realized that I create in a mixed media style all the time, I embraced the idea of hosting challenges and inspiring creativity. I love that mixed media doesn’t have to be messy!" `Anna
"I enjoying sharing how Mixed Media projects don't have to be hard to make." ~Jeanne
"I would have never thought I’d embrace mixed media because to me it was weird. I can easily be messy so that wasn’t an issue, but when I started creating my own pattern paper I was hooked. From there it was an easy “Yes!”, to hosting the Mix-Ability challenge." ~Janelle
"I choose mixed media because the techniques are so different than straight stamping and are often never the same way twice. It also let's me tell a story in a way a card can't." ~Kyra
"When given the choice - I choose mixed media! When we started this challenge, I loved seeing people realize mixed media isn't a style - it's a process that can result in any style of card - clean and simple, modern, vintage, etc. I think this challenge makes it so inclusive and fun!" ~Lydia
