Guest Designer: Beatriz Sanchez

Hello!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying your weekend? It's nearly the end of November and I can't quite believe how fast this year has gone! Well, I can't say it wasn't fun! ;) It is out intention to keep it that way and we have a very special post for you today! We are joined by a very talented lady who also is one of our lucky winners! 

May I introduce, the lovely Beatriz Sanchez... 



My name is Beatriz Sánchez (B-art) in the world of scrap. I'm from Spain and I live in Pamplona (Navarra). I live with my son and my three kittens adopted. I met the world of scrap a year ago and since then I have not stopped experimenting, do and try all kinds of things. I discovered it my world !!, as in, binds everything that I like. Photography, crafts, mixtures, ultimately, experience and explore !!. With every job, every day I try to overcome myself and try to learn new things and put my feelings in each. It is a passion. I hope you like my work and mainly to inspire them. I am currently a designer in two blogs of which I am very proud and can see my work on my blog: www.beartehome.blogspot.com.es

Thank you very much again for this great invitation for me a great honor.
A very affectionate hug everyone !!

Beatriz (B-Art)

Beatriz has a great talent for combining gorgeous textures with vibrant colours. Her creations are full of amazing elements and there is always so much to admire. Her attention to detail is brilliant which is probably one of the reasons we absolutely loved her gorgeous layout. Today, Beatriz is thinking of Christmas! I'm confident that her beautiful decorated Christmas gift bag will inspire to start crafting for Christmas...





 


Oh, I don't know about you, but I'm definitely getting my glitter and pastes out! I hope you're also feeling inspired to get crafting for the wonderful season of Christmas. Do visit Beatriz's blog for more mixed media goodness! 

Beatriz, thank you very much for sharing your amazing talent with us here today! Your make is absolutely stunning and we hope to see more of your creations. 

Our 'Anything Goes' challenge is still running for all who fancy showing us those fab mixed media masterpieces. Can't wait to see them all! 

Don't forget about our DT call! get in touch! :) 

All the best!

***MMW DT Call***

Hi!

Calling all mixed media artists and enthusiasts!! 

It's time to attack 2016 with some new talent! We'd like to invite one or two talented people to contribute to our challenges on monthly basis from January 2016. I will ask for one challenge project a month and one or two tutorial per the whole year. Not bad, right?! 

We are all friends here and we all enjoy what we do. We like to inspire others with our art and bring fun to the craft world through our creativity and our challenges. 

I'm not going to ask you to stay for a whole year (unless you want to!), but I'd like you to have fun with us and stay for as long as possible. This is not a chore!! We create for our monthly challenge because it's fun! We comment on your gorgeous makes, because we like to let you know that we love what you do and appreciate that you took time to create something for our challenge. So yes, if you think you fit to all of the above, are a brilliant and a unique mixed media artist who really wants to show it to the world and can commit to a little bit of time for crafting and commenting then please contact me on ...

ingridscraftscorner @ hotmail. co. uk

Don't forget to add 'MMW DT Call' in he subject line!!

Hi there! 

Ready for some more mixed media fun? I hope you can join us again this time! We have a super easy theme for our next challenge and it's chosen by Amanda. You can make anything your creative heart desires as Anything Goes this time!! Yay!

Our sponsor for this challenge is... That's Crafty! And you could win a £20 voucher to their online store!

.

I have the pleasure of announcing our winner... Her creation is out of this world and she very much deserves the prize... 


Yes, it is creeeeeepy! BUT, there's so much effort that went into this make, so many fun mixed media techniques used and the Halloween decor is just amazing! I'm definitely calling you before Halloween, Sara! :) Your garden really looks spookylicious! :) 

There were so many amazing entries it was nearly impossible to pick our favourites! We got the job done though and voted for the following FAB 3, in numerical order...

Huge congratulations to you all! Please could the winner contact me (Ingrid) via ingridscraftscorner (@) hotmail. co.uk to claim the prize and to confirm if happy to join us as a guess designer next month. 

Don't forget to download relevant badges from the side panel and proudly show them off! 

Now onto the new challenge... There will be some changes to our team. Mo is unable to continue with her DT spot due to being ill. We're all very sad and are thinking of her. We're keeping our inky fingers crossed that one day she will be able to join us and remind us how very talented she is. Sending big hugs! X

We will welcome Lena as our new DT member from next month and I can't wait to see her in action! This lady is extremely talented and I'm very happy that she agreed to join us here at MMW! 

There will be some changes to our blog  from 2016 too! I couldn't possibly spill the beans just yet, but I can promise heaps of mixed media art and inspiration that will get your creative juices flowing. We have a couple more challenges and some fabulous Star Designers coming up still this year so plenty to look forward to! Feel free to let me know what you would love to see or read about in 2016.
