Mixed Media Mamas

Ahhhhhh May….
the previous month’s showers bring’s new flowers.
And mothers world round are honored for all they have done for us.
Last month we introduced a new feature here on Gauche Alchemy – a reader challenge.
This month we celebrate mama’s. Gauche or not.

We’d love for YOU, our faithful reader, to join in and show us what “mothers” mean to you – gauche or not.
Link up to this post by Midnight, Sunday May 23 for a chance to win this fabulous ACME Lot #3 Mixed Media Kit from the Artfire Store:

Let’s see what our design team came up with for this one!

*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

Maggi:

I used a 16×20 canvas and created a collage with a crackle paint technique, the Happy Housewives kit (no longer available) and the Blue Streak Kit and
Scarlet Fever Red Kit.

*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

Erika:

There are so many lessons that we can teach our kids. Saying please and thank you. Treating others as you want to be treated or my personal favorites “ALWAYS KNOCK”

For the supplies, I’ve used the following Artfire Store yumminess:
Hot For Teacher Mixed Media Kit
Purple People Eater Kit
Black Out Kit
Punchinella

*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

Lara:

I trashpicked these lovely early 70’s Betty Crocker recipe cards and collaged them together to make the background. I then used Punchinella and Plastic Canvase from the ACME Lot #3 Kit as stencil and spray painted silver and white spraypaint. The photos and ribbon I got from various ACME Kits.

*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

Angela:

I used the ACME Lot #3 Kit and cut out advertisements from the old magazine pages and then put them together and glued them down for the background. The corrugated cardboard for the title and sub title are from the Wholey Sheet Kit. I pulled it apart and got two strips for the price of one! The embellies are from the Wedding Night White Kit and It’s All Gravy Baby! Brown Kit. The title is Gypsy font cut on my Cricut.

*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#**#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!!!
Remember, link up no later than Sunday night to win this fabulous kit!!!!!
