Anything But Cute - DT Announcement :) plus post 100!!

Hiya!!

I cannot tell you how honoured I was when Pamellia approached me and asked me to be on the DT for her own mixed media challenge blog - she is like the queen of all things beautifully arty, chic and, well... just totally spiffing gorgeous!!



I felt a little nervous when asked, but I couldn't say no, ya know? It would be like not accepting a good ol' cuppa with the Queen (or something like that), but nerves aside, I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited to be on her team and we have some majorly exciting challenges coming up.

Here is some info about the style of our challenge blog:
Anything But Cute is a brand new mixed media challenge blog with a new challenge starting on the 5th day of every month at 7:00 am EST. 
We welcome all types of crafts. Cards, journal pages, scrapbook pages, 3D crafts, canvas art, altered items and any other handmade paper or mixed media arts. We encourage crafters of all skill levels and styles - shabby chic, grunge, vintage, elegant, stylish, retro, you name it. As our name indicates, the only style we are not showcasing - are all things cute and adorable. There must be at least one mixed media product on your project somewhere, be that paint, ink, stain, spray, paste, clay, crackle glaze...whatever tickles your fancy!
At Anything But Cute, we would love to see all you seasoned and expert mixed media artists, but we also want to encourage those of you who are just getting your feet wet. Our design team will always be on the lookout for these exceptional projects and artists. You just never know when we might be giving out something special to a mixed media beginner. We all have to start somewhere, right!
Our first challenge starts on May 5th, so let's get messy and have some fun!

Come and check back on the 20th April, to see who our next designer is. She is one amazing talent, I adore her work - you will not be disappointed!

So don't miss out, come and follow us all on Anything But Cute, it is going to be one FANTASTIC journey and we want YOU to share it with us :)

On a side note, I have hit my 100th post with this announcement, so I thought I'd post the pic with where, for the most part, the obsession began. I had some earlier posts but with this piece I entered my first challenge, which then spiralled my addiction!! And now I'm here - and a little gobsmacked! :) In a great way though.

(excuse photo quality - I was well behind the times back then) :)



Warm hugs my lovelies

  3. Congratulations Georgie. Your work is fabulous and you will make a great addition to Pamellia's challenge team. Congrats also on your 100th post. I know if I go back to the beginning, my first blogged project won't be as wonderful as that sweet layout but practice makes perfect (or at least makes for improvement) so I keep practicing.
    Hugs!

  6. Congratulations, Georgie! This sounds like a fun new challenge. I've been wanting to try mixed media - I have received my art journal - yay! Just need to get the courage to start my first page! I was planning to incorporate cute with mixed media so I don't know if the challenge will be for me LOL. Congrats on your 100th post too! Way to go!
