"Mix It Up with Melange" and "Mixed Media Monday" Challenges



As a busy mother of three I find it necessary to be fastidious with time management...therefore I have created one piece of art to answer the calls of two challenges this week. Hey, a girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do :)

This mixed media collage is my response to the ON THE BEACH prompt from Mixed Media Monday and the FUN prompt from Mix It Up with Melange.

"the girls always had fun on the beach"...works for me :)

I encourage you to visit the challenge blogs and take part in the fun or at the very least look at all the wonderful art submitted by participants.

This collage is available in my Etsy shop.

It's a fab piece Nancy! I sympathise with you re: time management... I once made a piece that worked for 5 challenges!! In fact, often, one challenge leads to a more inspirational piece for another. =)
