Video Tutorial by Georgie C

Hello there, crafty souls!

How are you all doing? Can you believe it... another week as passed!

Our uber-talented Georgie prepared a video tutorial for you and what a treat it is! Oh my, you must, must watch it. It is such an amazing mixtravaganza, you won't believe it! Check it out...

I'm sure you will agree with me when I say I am sooo ready to get creating after watching this video! I really enjoyed learning more about Georgie's creative process and there is so much to admire! Here are some detailed shots for you. Enjoy!

Guest Designer: Nikki Acton

Hi there!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend?

I have an exciting post for you today! We have our old teamie Nikki Acton with us here today. She is also one of our special winners and I'm so glad she has agreed to join us for a moment. Nikki has created a fab card for our current challenge 'Get in Gear' and what a beauty it is!

Hi everyone - I am Nikki from Addicted to Art. Many thanks to Ingrid and the Mixed Media World team for welcoming me as a Guest Designer today.
I live in Hampshire in the UK with my cat Frankie. I am currently between jobs having had a long career in sales and marketing and more recently with my local Hospice. I am giving myself a couple of months off having had a difficult few years with family illnesses. That is my excuse anyway!

I have been crafting and blogging for just over two years now. My style is eclectic, from simple cards to grungy mixed media projects. I am a big Tim Holtz fan but also love bright, bold abstract art and lots of styles in between.

When I saw the current challenge theme I was initially stumped! Normally this would be right up my street but I seem to be having a bright phase more than my more natural grungy style which seemed the obvious interpretation for this theme. But I decided to combine the two

MMW#13: Get In Gear

Hi folks!!   Georgie here with you today, our lovely Ingrid is taking a well earned holiday and break, but will be back with us again soon!
Thank you for stopping by today! We just love mixed media here and love to challenge ourselves and give you some inspiration too! Speaking of challenges, our new one starts today, but before I go any further with that we have a winner and some Fab 3 to announce:    
Fab 3:

We had so many lovely entries again! You are such a talented bunch! 
I always enjoy seeing your very own interpretation of our themes. We always try to pick themes when every single one of you can find a way to join in.   Please feel free to add a relevant badge to your blog. Please could the winner email Ingrid - ingridscraftscorner (@) hotmail. co .uk - to claim the prize and to confirm if you would like to Guest Design for us.

Please ensure you rewrite the email address in a correct form without the brackets and spaces. Sometimes people email me via my contact form (which is fine too) saying the email doesn't work. The problem is we live a in world where everybody is on a diffident agenda and not all people out there have your best interest at heart. Plainly said, I don't want to get spammed. :)

*** New Challenge *** 

Our next challenge is 'Get In Gear' and is chosen by Georgie. So think about all that stash you have that has cogs and gears in/on them and bring it out to play! Can be stamps, papers, embellishments, die-cuts, anything... You don't have to go vintage or rusty (all though you certainly can if you wish), but brights, lights are also very welcome. Just be sure your project includes cogs/gears somewhere in the piece. So let your imagination drive you!

And we have some inspiration from the very talented team to help get you underway: Maria

Hope you're all having a very lovely, creative weekend and hope you can join us for this month's challenge. Prize details will be announced slightly later - so stay tuned!! ;)

Hugs Georgie xx
