This month the Design Team at UmWowStudio got to mix it up a bit and combine the UWS goodies with some fancy shmancy stuff from Gauche AlchemyGauche Alchemy is one of the swankiest shops online.  They have about a million types of punchinella (the hole-y strip left over from making sequins), awesome color kits with bits and pieces of ephemera, washi tape galore, and more. 

I got myself the color kits in yellow and blue, some ouchless cardboard, several washi tape rolls, and some punchinella:

I paired the awesomesauce GA swag with a couple of layered arrows, the guy from the potty people set, and the “love this” chipboard from UmWowStudio.

And did you guys see that molding paste on there??  I used it over some large dot punchinella to give a little texture and interest to the kraft background.  Not too shabby for someone scared off all this mixed media business, right!? 

These companies were seriously a perfect pairing!!
