More Gauche Alchemy Projects

The theme is still up at Paper link up your projects that are non-scrapbooking, getting messy, out of your comfort zone...

Here's an oldie, but my most favorite and still out in our living room.  You can see the original post here when I first did it and first time ever getting Gauche Alchemy goodies (which Emma loved too).
 It is was a brown paper mache ampersand I had gotten at our local scrapbook store years ago, no longer here.  For this ampersand I used a good mix of the kits (blue, yellow, red, pink, green).  Most of the papers are from the Gauche Alchemy kit with a little scrapbooking paper mixed in.  I had watered down acrylic red paint to paint the this most favorite.
 And I have one more piece that is still hanging in our foyer that never got photographed and showed off...a metal star from Michael's that I altered.  The majority of the papers are scrapbook papers.  I used mod podge to adhere everything.  The pony beads at the top are from the Gauche Alchemy red kit...this is when my love of using wire started...for the gold outline, I had used a Gold leafing pen by Krylon.
