Why is the challenge a full month?
The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge lasts for a month so players will have time to decide what type of project they want to make, experiment with different techniques, view any related videos or tutorials and work on their projects at their own pace. Some mixed media techniques require using products that need drying time and many times there is a process of trial and error that takes time. We want to make sure you have time to make a project you are proud of.
