Mixed Media Monthly - August Challenge!


Hello, the summer is really zipping by. I can't believe it's already August! This month at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog we have an Inspiration Photo challenge going. Base your project off of the above photo and don't forget to tell us how it inspired you. Also, our sponsor this month is IndigoBlu! They make the most fabulous rubber stamps and they very generously sent some stamps to everyone on the Design Team to use for their August projects.

For my project, I played off of the colors in the challenge photo and also the theme of garden and architecture.

I had more fun with my Distress Oxide Inks and tried a water stamping technique on the front that Jennifer McGuire shared in a post on her blog.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out our challenge post over at MMM! Join in and you could have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to spend in the IndigoBlu online store.

Stamps Used:
IndigoBlu - Floral Fantasy, Country House
