May Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #48 – Rust!

Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly 
Challenge #48

(Create a mixed media project with plenty of rusty colors,

***please remember to add this graphic to your blog post***

Our fabulous sponsor this month is Emerald Creek and its founder, Kim Evans, is our guest designer!

Here's a little bit about Kim:

"So who are you?" may be a question on your minds. Well, I am Kim Evans, a mother of 2, to my son Isaac and my daughter Vienna. I am happily married to my husband and high school sweetheart Duncan, who is extremely supportive of this career avenue I have chosen. 

I am an entrepreneur! My first career was in sales and my second career has been in the commercial construction and home building industry. My third career will be decades of fun with all of you in the creative arts industry. And if I am lucky enough, I hope to have one more simultaneous career in molding the next generation of Creative Arts Entrepreneurs. 

I wack some mean *&%* on the golf course, spend ample time camping with my family and am dabbling at guitar playing while I am at camp. (it's about the only time I can work on it, so I am not very good, LOL). You may often find me singing or dancing and I enjoy movies and books.

I welcome all to come and meet when I am touring at shows and welcome everyone to visit me on blogs or fire me an email or social message if you have questions. 

I am a down to earth, real person just like you that loves to laugh and not be serious very often.

I am Canadian!

Kim created this lovely card for our challenge. You can find out more details about it on her blog post here.

Emerald Creek is very generously providing a prize package of their unique embossing powders to our random draw winner!

And now for some inspiration from our Design Team...
