I want to top up on the numbers.  This challenge blog just asks you to enjoy your creating.  

The challenges run monthly so just one project a month.

We do not have sponsors so you can use anything you like and even create what you like as long as it is altered art, mixed media NO CARDS.  

Everyone is required to comment on 2 numbers -  these will be sorted out once in situ.

There is no fixed appointment and if there is a problem when you it is not possible to join in on occasion just let us know so we can cover for you.

No previous DT experience is necessary and any level of crafter is welcome here - all art is beautiful

I am not a tyrant to work alongside with just ask my girlies.. I love them all and have been paid to sing my praises lol

As I have already stated over at Eclectic Ellapu - where has this year gone?  We nearly at the dreaded C word lol.

Thank you for all your beautiful entries last month.  I enjoyed getting around all your blogs and gaining quite alot of inspiration along the way.  Thank you for joining and please continue to do so.

For those of you who do not know this blog is ANYTHING GOES every month as long as it is mixed media, altered etc NO CARDS please.  I still see the odd sneaky one amongst the entrants and as beautiful as they are they will not count for placings.

Right now it's time to show off my incredibly talented DT's creations.

New month and so another challenge

Well here we are again - where is all the time going and it is getting closer to Christmas LOL.  We had some fabulous entries last month and we really enjoyed visiting your blogs so keep up the good work.  I do have one teeny weeny moan - there seems to be alot of entries of cards.  I have to remind you this is a mixed media altered art blog so cards and ATC's are not acceptable for our challenges.  The cards entered are really pretty but I am afraid they cannot be included in the voting by the DT for winners etc.  Sorry.

Now onto the new challenge and the DT inspiration which if I say so myself they are as fantastic as always.  I do love my DT and their projects.

So here they are

altered canvas

Altered keyring

Altered Journal Cover
Altered MDF heart

Hope to see you joining in with our challenge this month - please leave the link to your project below

New month - New challenge

Hello everyone

Firstly before we start the new challenge I would like to thank all you lovely talented crafters out there for sharing your creations with us.  We love to see them all.  I do have to apologize if any of you did not receive a comment - we are a little thin on the ground and all so busy with stuff beyond crafting.

That all said we best get on with the new ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE for the month of June.
