A challenge – Julie Fei-Fan Balzer style – and a chance to win some Gauche goodies!

Happy Friday Gauchites!  Did you see what our guest designer Julie Fei-Fan Balzer came up with the Hot for Teacher Paper Craft Mixed Media Kit in yesterday’s post? Go see it now…I’ll wait for you….

(taps fingers impatiently….)

So. Totally. Cool. Right?

Inspired? Because Julie’s issuing a challenge :

Give a piece of vintage ephemera or even an old piece of patterned
paper new life by painting on it and incorporating it into a project!

And you could win yourself the Paper Napkin Art Kit

and also the Foreign Text for Mixed Media Art and Collage Kit!

Game to play along? Link up your creations using Inlinkz (located at the end of this post) by April 8 for your chance to win these yummy kits!

  1. Julie rocks my world, every day, every post, just being herself. I love her work and I feel she’s helped free me to create art that’s truly mine.

    Question about the challenge, I have some super-old stickers I’d like to give new life with paint and slap on a project… would that count?

    Kisses to all my Gauche Goddesses,
