February Challenge - Show Us The Love

Welcome to the Bleeding Art Challenge Blog! It's February so show us the love!


Create a mixed media project with love in mind - either the subject or color or embellishments! But be sure to check the rules page beforehand so you know what kinds of projects we accept and the requirements for your entry.  Those not complying won't be considered in judging!

And we've got December's winner back with a fantastic project! Meet Sara!


Hi! I'm Sara Emily, and I live in the coastal area of North Carolina, USA. I'm sharing this photo of me with my lovely daughter having a silly moment while picking out our Christmas tree. I am a wife, mother of 20-year-old twins, and Child of God. I am a retired Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant, and currently am second in command in our family business where we develop real estate. When I'm not doing all the menial tasks involved with that, I like to hide away in my tiny closet and make things. I serve on two wonderful Design Teams, which keeps the mixed media products in constant motion. I have a tendency toward the grungy, funkie side of things, but every once in a while I like to make pretty things. Today I'm sharing a mix of the two sides of 'me'. I also have a tutorial on my blog outlining the steps I took to make this Valentine panel.




Thanks so much, Sara, for a gorgeous project!

December Challenge - Shiny and Sparkly

Welcome to the Bleeding Art Challenge Blog! It's December so let's make it shiny and sparkly!


Create a mixed media project that's got some shine and/or sparkle to it - think glitters, glass beads, even mirror pieces or foil! But be sure to check the rules page beforehand so you know what kinds of projects we accept and the requirements for your entry.

And we've got October's winner back with a fantastic December project!  Meet Helen Angel-Cullum!


I have done some form of crafting for most of my life, learning to knit at about 4 years old - that's nearly 58 years ago! I have been on a number of DTs in the past and was quite well known in the "Alternative/Dark" genre as Croms. All this was put aside about 3 years ago because the majority of the companies/blogs I used to create for decided to stop their challenges and/or close up shop. The bigger companies with cute images were taking over - I don't really "do" cute! But I've found one small DT that fits my skill-sets and passions. Baby steps, as they say!

Helen's created this beautiful shrine for her daughter's upcoming wedding - shiny and sparkly!



You can check out all the details at her blog - Croms' Cubby Hole!

Now how about a little inspiration from our fab DTs! Click their names to check out their project posts!
