A Week of Creative Concoctions with Gauche Alchemy

I mentioned Friday that we were up to something special this week, so let's get started!  Everyday this week we are going to share the creative experiments the 100 Proof Press design team and the Alchemists of Gauche Alchemy have concocted for your inspirational pleasure.  

Gauche Alchemy is all about the art - really fun art supplies!  They have mixed media kits, that are filled with fun artistic finds, papers, ephemera, embellishments, fabric, and more.   Gauche Alchemy "is for those that create outside the of the box, those that create inside of the box, and those that tear the box a new one..." 

This first piece is by 100 Proof Press design team member, Alexa.  She incorporated a lot of the Gauche Alchemy ephemera and paper to create this collage designed around the center image of the wooden chair stamp.  I love what she invented... 

Next up I'm going to share something that I created with the awesome Gauche Alchemy kit.  Here's an owl art doll.  All of the supplies to make this owl were found in the kit (except for the legs and the fabric for the face and the owl stamp).   This owl actually has a sister, if you'd like to meet her you can visit my personal  blog.

The third piece I'm going to share today is from an art journal from Alchemist Lori. Lori has designed a page around the mason jar stamp, and wonderfully accented it with a  Roald Dahl quote.  She used several 100 Proof Press stamps for the background, and Color Shine Spray Inks.

This was just day one - and there's more over on the Gauche Alchemy blog right now! There's even a special offer going on now - you can use the code 100ProofPress10 to get 10% off your order in the Gauche Alchemy store.  I hope you stop by tomorrow to catch some more inspiration.
