Get Your Mixed Media Game On!

Hey everyone! It’s Maggi here with this month’s awesome challenge!  But before we do that, I have a question:  did you know that Gauche Alchemy is on Facebook?  That’s right, give us a “Like” over there and join us over at Facebook! We have Facebook Fans only giveaways and one of our winners was Meredith from Paper Canteen. She made an awesome project with her prize so head on over to her blog and check it out!

Now for a new monthly challenge: I love this challenge because it couldn’t have come at a better time: For gamers (like myself), our Christmas starts this week in the form of E3! YES!!!!!!!! 😀 *happy dance*

But this challenge is for everyone! Our Mixed Media Color Kits tend to have a plethora of game pieces in them and they were the inspiration for a challenge we like to call: Game On! Your mission (should you choose to…well, you know how that goes) is to create anything you want with a game theme. Could be a card, a layout, an art journal page, an altered item, ANYTHING!

Once your fabulous creation is uh, created and posted to your blog or Flickr account, come back here and make sure to leave a direct link to your project IN THIS POST by midnight on Sunday, June 27th. That’s right, you have two glorious weeks to enter so get gluing! 😀 The winner will received a $10.00 gift certificate to our STORE. Oh snap!

Check out all the details at the end of this post but first here’s some inspiration from some members of our Design Team!

Kas created this layout about her Game of Life:

Yvonne made this layout using pieces from our Envy Green Mixed Media Color Kit:

Angela made this awesome bracelet:

And here’s the best part: This month we’re going to have TWO winners! Oh baby! We’ll pick a winner for the gift certificate from those that create something for the Game On challenge. BUT we will also be picking a winner from everyone that leaves a comment in this post and that person will win the rockin’ bracelet our Alchemist Angela made (see the picture above, isn’t it awesome?!)

Let’s sum up:

-Create something (anything!) with a game type theme and leave a link (directly to your project, not just to your main blog or Flickr acct please!) in this post by Midnight, Sunday June 27th for your chance to win a $10.00 Gauche Alchemy gift certificate!

-Leave a comment in this post for your chance to win the bracelet above created by Angela!

Both winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 30th. Lara will be back next Monday with your challenge reminder and more inspiration from our Design Team. Good luck and game on! 😀
