I have a special announcement today. Our last winner Yulianna agreed to Guest Design for us this month. She made a fantastic mixed media creation, it's going to knock your socks off!

What more... you may have noticed that we have a really special team here at MMW. Not only that we are all friends brought together for the love of Mixed Media, but also each and one of us has a little bit different style. Our got very excited when I saw Yulianna's work and fell in love with her textured and unique style. I could no longer resist and asked her to become a permanent member of our team and she said YES!!! Yay! Welcome to our world, Yulianna! We're all excited that you are going to share your talent with us! I'm going to have a little surprise for you at the end of this post so read on...

This month's challenge theme is chosen by my dear Inky, I mean, Donna :) (Her blog is called Inky & Quirky so I nick named her 'Inky' after she renamed her blog and it reminded me of my name. Ingrid in short is Inka, as my Mum and close friends call me. So there is a little internal joke,.. Inka and Inky, hehee.. :)) aaanyway... the challenge perfect for this month is...
