Hello Michelle here!
Here we are well into the second week of January but I’m still in review mode- nothing like a good look back at how far you’ve come to more clearly see where you are going. Holy MOLY did Gauche Alchemy have an incredible line up of mixed media artists in 2011 or what?
Prepare for a feast for the eyes AND the mind. Links for each month and the artist’s personal website are provided in case you’d like to read further. Happy 2012!
I love how Julie outlined the circle and turned all those patterns and colors in the Hot for Teacher kit into an amazingly cohesive and unique design.
I LOVE that corrugated butterfly! I’m definitely going to try this! Amy used Ouchless Cardboard, Scarlet Fever Red Mixed Media Color Kit and the Acme Subscription Kit. Our new Moshi Moshi kit features Japanese newsprint as well.
May’s guest designer, Julia Stainton, showed our readers how to incorporate Gauche ephemera into their projects:
Julia used clear punchinella, items from our Wedding Night White Mixed Media Kit and papers from our Acme Subscription kit but you can reach similar results using our Bare Nekkid and Nearly Nekkid neutral tone kits.
Dina used the Going Postal Mail Art Mixed Media Kit- WOW!!! Just WOW!!!
Frieda used our Bare Nekkid kit to make this ATC- the layering and red accent stitching on the leaves make for an beautifully subtle work of art .
More on Cat’s wonderfully detailed process can be read in the original post here.
There you have it. Inspired yet? I am going straight to my crafty corner after this sentence to get started on my next project- if it has an ounce of the creativity shown here I will be extremely happy.
