"Mix it Up with Melange" Challenge ~ GROW

Welcome...everyone is invited to join in the challenge. You do not have to be on the team or an Etsy seller to create a piece of art with the month's theme and show it on this blog.

Thanks to Stacey Merrill the prompt for this month's challenge is GROW. Create a piece of mixed media art using this prompt as inspiration. When you are finished follow these simple rules:

1) Post your finished piece on your blog, website, Flickr page, Etsy or elsewhere INCLUDING a link back to the Melange Team blog.

2) Comment to this blog post INCLUDING the link to where we can find your beautiful piece.

3) Please link to a static page

(What’s a static page? An example of a static link is http://www.melange.com/ticket/2009/04/22/mix-it-up-challenge/, whereas an example of a link to the main website is http://www.melange.com)

  1. My mixed media piece for GROW

    This was made from paper and ephemera from the 8 Melangers in our materials swap, DharmaKarmaArts, ArtSnark, MidwestieLady, JessieGuess, ElenaMary, LDphotography, LizAnnasOnTheLake and moi, whyte. The swap was not only a lot of fun, but it was great fun going through the goodie bags today and creating from such wonderful "stuff"!!!!

  2. Leslee, love your interpretation of Grow, love the depth and movement of your piece and the subtlety of the leaf.

  3. Wonderful work Pat and Leslee! Pat I love how you've pulled all the elements together into a tree and Leslee, I love layers and the haunting quality.

    Here's my entry for this month: )

  4. Laurel, you are such a tease with the CitraSolve technique....I love what you create with that! Great "grow" ACEO!
