This was an exciting Challenge as we were able to create art ontop and underneath!

My inspiration this week comes from Melli Mello. Melli Mello is a bold and exciting mix of different styles such as: Graphic, Romantic, Ethnic, and Floral. It is a brand based on cross cultural blend. This was perfect for Minx as Minx had recently launched its layering kits which encourages mixing of styles.
