"Mix it Up with Melange" Challenge ~ FREEDOM

*** In honor of Independence Day and our brave men and women serving in the military, our prompt for July is FREEDOM. ***

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 Karen the prompt for this month's challenge is FREEDOM. 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)

4) Come back often to check out all the terrific work that will be submitted. :)

  1. wow, you are such a prolific artist - lots of wonderful stuff here :)

  2. Stephanie, thanks for stopping by, your comments are so appreciated! We have a lot of fun with this challenge every month, some are regulars, some just contribute when they can. For me it challenges me to think out of the box. When I create, I seldom have a vision, even a theme. I just start picking up pieces to use in a collage or mm piece and run with it. These are actually difficult for me, and I like that!

  3. I've just come across your blog, and I'm SO excited! Working with a theme is difficult for me also, so I'm looking forward to digging in and challenging myself. Is there a certain date that we need to have our submissions linked?

  4. My July Freedom entry..sorry no clickable link..it defeats me...

  5. Indira, love your interpretation! Elenamary, ah yes, love using handmade paper in collage and mixed media.

    Lovelinest, all monthly challenges throughout the blog remain open indefinitely. You can add your mixed media artwork to any of them it if fits withing the word prompt for that particular month. Welcome, looking forward to your participation.
