Thank you everyone!

March 6, 2011


Thank you to everyone who participated on Mixed Media Monday, and a special thanks to all the wonderful guest hosts.  Thanks also for all the kind words, I feel a little sad, but think that the timing is right to finish MMM.  Good luck with all of your art adventures, I’m sure I’ll “see you around”. Love and happiness to everyone.

Please copy and enjoy this free image from my personal collection, as a small thank you from me!

News Flash

September 27, 2010

As from next week, Mixed Media Monday is going monthly. That means that you will have a full month to create your piece of art, and post it to our site.  In fact, I intend to continue with the little psst” message that gives you the upcoming challenge, so that will give you up to two months to create a piece.

I hope everyone will continue to enjoy Mixed Media Monday. I think being a monthly challenge will give those of us who wish to, more time to create larger projects, and take the pressure off trying to have something ready to post in a week.

So that we can keep the name Mixed Media Monday, I will post the new challenges on the first Monday of the month – so we will be Mixed Media Monday – Monthly 🙂

I hope this will suit most people and that you will continue to take a challenge with us.

Thankyou to all of the wonderful members of MMM for their wonderful messages!  I am very touched!  I am hanging in there, improving slowly (0h so slowly – I’m going stir crazy).  I have been and visited everyone’s blog to see their “play” pieces – I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to leave a message for everyone! See you with Rosie’s challenge tomorrow (Aussie time).

Announcing our new Yahoo Group

March 2, 2009

Since our poor old forum died an unnatural death a while back, I’ve been thinking that I would still like a way to discuss art with members of Mixed Media Monday, as well as get to exchange ATC’s or other artwork with them.  This time I opted for a venue that I know – Yahoo groups.  So this is an invitation to everyone who participates on Mixed Media Monday to come along and join the Yahoo group.  You will find a link in right side bar to join.  Let’s have fun!

*** Please note:  This Mixed Media Monday Challenge Blog will continue unchanged.  The Yahoo group is just an added feature for participants to exchange ideas and techniques and trade Artists Trading Cards and perhaps other pieces of  artwork.

Hmmmmm…..I just tried to access the forum, and it’s not there!  I don’t know what’s gone wrong – but hopefully I’ll be able to sort it out.  Fingers crossed.

We Are Published!

April 30, 2008

We have been published in the wonderful Somerset Studio publication “Artful Blogging”.  It is a wonderful four page spread, with some of our participants’ artwork being featured.  Congratulations to everyone who’s wonderful work appears in this issue, and congrats also to Somerset Studio for another wonderful publication.  Unfortunately I think some of the artistic credits have been messed up, so if you have any corrections you would like me to publish here, please let me know.  You can see Heather R’s wonderful piece on page 117, where it slipped into the One World, One Heart article.
