5th of each month is the start date for our challenges.
The term Mixed Media covers a lot of things so how can anyone get it wrong. This is a fun place so if you are new and looking to have a play by having a go here is a bit of help. A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, etc, that are combined in a single composition.

Would like you to meet Lozzy

Hi everyone and hope you all ok..
Would like to introduce Lozzy aka Me to the Design Team.



I have been Crafting now as my hobby for about 5 years and love every minute of it. My main passion is card making using rubber and digi stamps as I love to colour. I mainly use Spectrum Noir pens but do have a tendency to use my Pro Marker pens for a change as you get different results with the different pens. I'm still learning a lot of crafty things like using distress
inks and mainly embossing powders which I still need a lot of practice with but the saying is practice makes perfect. I try and vary my designs from CAS, Frilly and Flowery to a bit on the darker side but it just depends on when I look at an image to what I am going to do.

About 6 months ago i started up the challenge blog  A Bit More Time To Craft as i designed many digi papers to use for myself and then just thought a good way to share them with you by offering the winners from the challenges my digi papers. Due to the fact that that iv heard so many challenge blog ending i decided to start another for all you lovely crafter's out there but for this one would like to focus more on the mixed media side of crafting. I must admit that i an quite new to things regarding mixed media so i also will be learning as i go along.
Would like to thank our DT Ladies for joining use on this new journey here and we hoping you lovely crafter's out there would like to support us and join in by showing us your creations.
Thats it from me and over the next few weeks you will be meeting a few more of our design team.
Hugs Lozzy xx

Would like you to meet Margaret

Hi everyone and hope you all ok..
Would like to introduce you to Margaret who has joined us on the Design Team.




"I am a Christian and live in Sydney, Australia with my husband Tony and after working for 53 years I am now retired. I have two daughters and four granddaughters.  (My granddaughters and their friends call me Granmargaret).
I started stamping and making cards in 1995 and started scrap-booking about 1999 and making ATCs in 2005. I started my blog in April 2012 with the help of cyber friends and started joining challenges. I was really happy to find challenges to give me new ideas for my cards.  My cards are mostly cute and simple.  I have lots of rubber and clear stamps but now mostly use digital stamps.  I love the png ones that can be layered over digital pattern paper.  
I suffer from fibromyalgia and arthritis and bad eyes and I am a cancer survivor.  I spend my days making cards, a little scrap-booking and talking to my cyber friends on the internet.    (I have made so many lovely new cyber friends since starting my blog.)

I am on the A Bit More Time to Craft design team and I was so excited when Lozzy invited me to be on the design team for More Mixed Media.  I am going to have to learn as I go along."
