Mixed Media Monthly Challenge for October

The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog has been such a fun thing to be a designer for. I have enjoyed coming up with new ideas to use supplies and "mixing up" the media! I hope you can participate in the October challenge.

The October challenge is to use ribbons! I have always loved using ribbons in my scrapbooking and cardmaking. In my heavy paper crafting days, I had a tendency to collect and hoard ribbon, including keeping even an inch of scrap or lace trim. I'm sure some of you can relate! When I found out our challenge for October was ribbons, I was so happy.

Our sponsor for this month is May Arts. They are awarding our challenge winner with three spools of fall inspired ribbon.

My project for this challenge is a 11" x 5.5" wide piece of lumber. I collaged papers on it, then added fabric flowers and ribbon. The gold leaves is actually ribbon, and I also used a bit of green cotton trim. Flowers are always in fashion, right??

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have been inspired to participate in the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. Link up your projects on the October challenge post here. We can't wait to see what you create!
