New Media or Technique Monthly Challenge.

September is about new beginnings.  As the kids (and adults alike) head back to school, many artists, reminiscent of our school days, get the itch to learn something new too.

Nancy of N. Fallon Design Studio came up with this challenge, inspired by Storybeader's January challenge, to "set aside that time to work on and complete a new technique that you admire."  We've all got those projects sitting on our desks, or ideas floating around in our heads for media or techniques that are outside of our normal work and would love to find time to work on.

So let's find that time!  Make something just for you, or just for fun.  Learn a new technique in your own medium or experiment with a new medium.  Combine techniques, research a new style of work to inspire your project, or just dig through that box of projects you've not found the time to work on and get going!

Pintuck Pleats- New technique to me!

Don't forget to check back sometime around the 25th to see what the other participants have created and posted on their personal blogs. See you then! 

 As members of the Blogging Business Artisans we are required to participate in 6 of the 12 monthly challenges per year.  Additional requirements and to see future challenges click here.  If you would like to become a Blogging Business Artisan, check out what that means here.

Today's post was written by Nancy of N. Fallon Design Studio.  Established in 2008, the shop houses a whimsical line of knit purses, wallets, and knitwear.  An artist at heart, Nancy also dabbles in watercolors, mixed media sculpture, and poetry.  You can read more about her life and work on her blog One Loopy Knitter.

This is a tough one for someone who is afraid to step out of her comfort zone (i.e. ME!) but it sounds fun too! Thanks for the challenge Nancy!

This will indeed be a tough one. For me it will be tough because I dabble in so many mediums--fabrics, jewelry. Well, I'll find something to do!!!

This was a great theme in January. I look forward to revisiting it and seeing what others do!
