If you've stopped by the Gauche Alchemy blog today, you'll see that a brand-spanking new team has been announced, and in honor of that, all the Gauche Girls are Opening Up. How easy are we..to figure out that is! If you haven't started at the beginning of our hop, Hop on back to the Gauche Blog and start in the fun there. There are RAKs up for grabs along the hop, so make sure you comment on each Gauche Girls blog for a chance to win some serious yumminess.
Now for the fun part: Each of us Gauche Girls has chosen a word that best describes Why we're so Gauche! Honey, this is where you need to work it a little! Here's what you do: Find all the words and which hoppin' hunny they belong to, head back to the GA Blog & post a comment with your answers - if you get it right, you get a shot at a kick-ass prize pack from The Head Honchettes themselves! See, it's EASY. If you have already started on the hop you should have come from Andrea's Blog.
My handle, as most of you know, is Perky Nihilist as I am a study of opposites and contradictions that peacefully coexist. So my word is Perky it describes both my personality and has a naughty boobies connotation. *grin*
This LO is a good example of my attitude towards creating in general. I like art best when it has bits and pieces of real life throughout, especially when you can use things that would normally be discarded. The fabric is all the selvages and bits left from straightening fabric pieces to cut for a project I am working on. All those wedge-shaped slivers were too pretty to toss in the trash.
I also used bright, bright colors - lots of red and orange - as that is what you see most in my work.
Making feminine pieces is my only "girlie" outlet. I added frayed, messy bows to reflect on my life as a women in an all male household.
Here's the RAK I'm offering for commenters on my blog. I am de-stashing some of the awesome mixed-media goodies I have on hand and would love to share them with you.
Please head over to Lara's blog to see more Gauche Alchemy goodness and get to know the rest of the team.
