September Challenge

and yes here we all are once again - new month new challenge.  As a reminder this challenge blog is always ANYTHING GOES MIXED MEDIA/ALTERED ART.  We do get the odd card slipping under the radar and as beautiful they are they should not be entered into these challenges but by all means check out our sister blog Eclectic Ellapu to see if your cards fit those themes.  I would also like to point out to those entering this challenge that will be able to enter Rhedd's Creative Spirit challenges as they too are Anything goes, mixed media/altered art blog. Just a lil' plug for our fabulous Sandra - the owner.

Now then onto the challenge and the fabulous DT inspirational projects this month - why not head on over to their blogs to see more details on their projects.

August and is it Summer yet?

Well I don't know about the rest of you in the UK but have you had the chance of many barbecues on the beach with the sun going down without your fur coat on lol.  Maybe it will get better lol.  Before we move onto this months challenge we have lost the fabulously talented Steffi and we wish her well for the future .

Anyway it is time for a new challenge of Anything goes over here at Altered Eclectics.  It does have to be mixed media/altered art to enter the challenge.

Now for the fabulously talented DT and their art work.  Why not head on over to their blogs and leave them lots of love and admiration.  They really are a special bunch of ladies.
