Challenge 2 - Anything Mixed Media/Creative Goes

Good morning, November is here already so it's time for a new challenge!! A big thank you to everyone who entered last month's challenge, the DT will be voting for their top 3 picks and we'll be announcing the winner and Top 3 on  November 26th. The long winter evenings are a great excuse to craft so I hope you're going to join us. Our theme is easy peasy ...

Anything Creative Mixed Media Goes

You don't have to use our products to enter (but we do a happy dance when you do lol) and the challenge will run until 30th November so there's loads of time to play long. Did I mention we've got a fabulous prize from Polkadoodles for our lucky winner too?

Polkadoodles Ltd

So check out the inspiration from our DT and get crafting to be in with a chance of winning! As you can see our talented teamies have been busy working their mixed media magic for you .....

Claire C I've made a mixed media wallhanging using the beautiful new image called Nature Lover - January which you can find in the Polkadoodles store here. I've printed her onto kraft card and coloured her with pencils. The background was made with PanPastels. Next I stencilled some leaves with iridescent paste and once it was dry added some colour with alcohol markers. You can find all the details on my blog

Gemma I have a poster to share with you all today made using printouts from the wonderful Belle Papillon collection from Polkadoodles. I ripped and glued printable background papers onto mixed media strength card with Gesso. Once dry I layered up acrylic and water sprays, before adding some stencilling with Pan Pastels. Then I glued these wonderful large butterflies from another printable into place with a feel-good quote, once dry I added some colour with more Pan Pastel and colouring pencils to blend them in before going around the edges with a black pen.

Lou: Last week I shared a 'top tip' about different media to print on to create your mixed media projects - see HERE - and this week I am sharing with you the project I made using my printed toilet roll and kitchen towel. I have used the Belle Papillion Big Kahuna collection to make a notebook cover. I even dusted off my Bind It All to make the notebook! You can find lots more details and photos over on my blog.

A Sneeky Peeky this time from me (Terry) on the 19th of November I will be sharing a Tutorial on how I made my project....hope to see you there....xxxx
