Direction - Mixed Media Place

Hello there! There's a new challenge and a new style of challenges in the Mixed Media Place's blog! In the months to come, the Mixed Media Place team will bring you some art exercises. Because you know, creativity is just like a muscle - you need to be using it regularly, practice, bend and stretch, like the wording says in the MMP blog. 

"The plan is that every month each of our fantastic Design Team members is going to design a special challenge. Every month it will be different, every time it will give you a great opportunity to get some art workout. So if you feel stuck or if you feel like you need some practice or... simply feel like having some fun - join us in our Creative Gym!"

The first exercise is by Tusia and the challenge is to use black, white and grey plus your favorite color. Challenging, but fun, right?

If you have been visiting here some time, you probably have noticed the amount of blueish-turquoise colored crafts so the choice of the color wasn't that hard. I used turquoise only in my background to make the area of the photo pop. All the patterned papers and details are otherwise within the monochromatic color scheme.

My topic in the page is looking for and finding a direction. We have had some major changes at work which have lead me to think about what I'd like to do when I grow up. I still don't have an answer, but there's been a lot of pondering and I've learnt what I don't want to do.

Thank you for visiting today! Have a nice day!
