"Mix It Up with Melange"



We've put our heads together and decided that it would be great fun to host a weekly challenge here at the Melange blog. The challenge will be in mixed media and revolve around a weekly word prompt which will be posted every Wednesday. Any mixed media artist is welcome to join in. You do not have to be a member of Etsy or Melange team. We welcome anyone and everyone who would like to play along and have their art shown on this blog.

Ideas for the weekly word prompts come from YOU and will be chosen at random. If you have an idea for a prompt you can simply send it in an email to mycollageart@gmail.com or send a convo to collageartgirl over at Etsy.

When you have created your mixed media response to the prompt, post a link to the piece (at your blog, Flickr or website, or even an Etsy listing) in the comments section of the Melange blog post. The first participant to post their link will be our featured artist for that week and their creation will serve as inspiration for the rest of the us.

Our challenge will be known as "Mix It Up with Melange" and we hope to attract artists from throughout the mixed media community. If you can "advertise" this challenge at your own blog, especially just prior to next Wednesday, hopefully we can become a challenge that folks from all over the mixed media community look forward to and join in on.

So remember to look for a prompt every Wednesday, and maybe we'll even give you a little "heads up" a few days earlier :)

Get ready to "Mix It Up with Melange"

  2. One question: Are prompt suggestions limited to either images or text?

  3. Prompts should be in the form of one or two word inspirations...I'm sorry I should have made that clear. It will not be an image as in MWO.
