Our Final Challenge – Shape Up

Sadly, due to continuing lack of  participation, I have decided that this will be our last challenge on Mixed Media Monday. We have had a really good run, made lots of great friends and have been inspired by each other. Thankyou to everyone who has participated over the years. I would especially like to thank the special group of people who have been guest hosts, without you MMM wouldn’t have been such a fun and vibrant place to play. So thank you, one and all.

For our final challenge, I would like you to work on a shape that you find pleasing and/or challenging.  Don’t forget to check back at the end of the month to see the sampler and Art of the Week.

There are lots of other wonderful challenge blogs for you to play in, and I am sure we will see each other at some of them 🙂

    With MMM sadly closing up shop, I thought I would pass along a link to another Mixed Media challenge. Melange on Etsy, of which I am a member, offers a monthly challenge to anyone who’s interested. You need not be a member nor even sell on Etsy. The “Mix It Up with Melange” monthly challenge is open to everyone. Here is a link for this month’s challenge 🙂


    I hope to “see” ya’ll around the challenge blogs wherever they may be!
