Thanks, Candy, for the awesome mention, the blog candy, and the wonderful job you do on scrappylinks.com

Want to design for us?

Gauche Alchemy is looking for guest designers for the winter. International applicants welcome to apply!

Send us photos of 2-3 projects you’ve created recently (they don’t have to be specifically created for this call).

Include your name, your blog address (if you have one), and any links to online galleries that show your work. If you frequent any forums, let us know which ones!

Oh, and answer these questions for us, please and thank you:

1) Why do you want to design for us?

2) Have you used ephemera and found objects in your projects before? If so, what do you like about using these materials? If not, how do you feel about letting one of our kits push your creative boundaries?

In answering these questions, feel free to show us your gauche personality quirks. We like that sorta thing.

Please have your applications in before 2009. Yes, you read that right – the deadline is December 31, 2008 at midnight. We’ll make a decision shortly thereafter and profile some of our favorite applicants/projects on our blog.

E-mail applications to gauchealchemy@cox.net and write “GDT application” in the subject line.
