I am beyond thrilled!
Wanna know why?
This month I get the pleasure of being the Guest Designer over at Gauche Alchemy! In case you haven't heard of their awesomeness, they are a mixed media kit Club, blog and online store that has all kinds of fabulousness!
They sent me one of their amazing and quirky ACME kits to work from. This kit includes items like old book pages, washi, lace, punchinella, and plastic trinkets. It is a box full of serious fun!
To get started, I gessoed on a napkin and hand stitched hearts and lace onto a stamped background...
...and came up with this! I shared a start to finish of this layout on their blog last week.But, that was just the tip of the iceberg. I put some more napkins and lace to use along with an old book cover...
... and scrapped this! They shared this layout on their blog today.
Oh yes, people... that IS wood grain punchinella you see there! Whooot! Oh, and that is just the beginning. You won't believe how much I was able to get out of this kit. I will be sharing my projects over at Gauche Alchemy all month long. I may even have something in store for Layout Love Linky.
This kit had me approaching my layouts in a whole new way. That is always a good thing. You all know how I love to mix it up! I hope you will join me over there to see what else this kit did for my pages.
And speaking of guesting, have you seen this week's sketch over at Skissedilla? It is a great one! You should pop on over there to see what I came up with and play along with us too.
Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon :)
