We've got August's winner back with a great project! Meet Evelyn!


Hello lovelies -  my name is Evelyn. I live in a small village in Germany near Munich. I've been crafting my whole life, and tried out many techniques and I even chose a profession where I can be creative - I am a teacher of handicraft and home economics.  Years ago, I was askedby my colleagues to make the birthday cards for everyone. So I discovered the world of stamping and switched to Mixed Media. Now, I am in some Design Teams and it really makes me happy. I love to create with all different mediums - I´m a little bit addicted to stencils and stamps and all the wonderful mediums. I love to try out new things and in the last few years drawing and painting, especially faces, takes more room in my artwork.

Some weeks ago, I took part in a workshop with the wonderful Anna Dabrovska (finnabair) in Munich. I enjoyed the workshop very much. So for the everything goes theme here at Bleeding Art, I decided to make a canvas in the "finnabair-way".


If you want to see, how I made this, please visit my blog.  You can find me at FacebookInstagram, and YouTube!

Thanks so much, Evelyn, for being our guest designer - awesome project! And we do hope you'll visit her on her social media sites!

We've got August's winner back with a fab project! Meet Semonti!



Hello! I'm Semonti and I’m from India. I live with my furry buddy. Since childhood, I've loved to do arts and crafts, but the last six years, I've taken it seriously. First, I started with decoupage, but now I found my love and passion in mixed media also. Crafting is a stress buster for me; I find the real me when I create something. I like to combine different things all together. For the current challenge, I have altered a lantern in a sea theme and turned it into a sea treasure - because we all know someone’s trash is another one’s treasure. Here's my finished project - I hope you'll visit me on my blog or Facebook!




Thanks so much, Semonti, for being our guest designer - marvelous design! And we do hope you'll visit her on her social media sites!

We've got June's winner back with a fab project! Meet Elly!


Hello, my name is Elly and I live with my husband in The Netherlands, 3 km from the border of Germany. For me, crafting is a  compensation of missing my grandchildren and to fill my days as a retired woman.  I love all sorts of crafting. I started with making cards but I  discovered mixed media and love to try all different mediums. My project for this challenge is with a message for myself that, when the light of Christ comes into your heart, it  breaks the walls we have made around our heart so that we can become free...

Greetings, Elly





Thanks so much, Elly, for being our guest designer - beautiful project and message! You can see more about this project on Elly's blog!
