Hot For Teacher Rewind

Hi everyone!

We're doing kit rewinds during the month of June at Gauche Alchemy, new projects featuring kits already available in the Gauche Alchemy store!

I snagged a canvas wall hanging that I didn't want to use on the wall anymore but wasn't going to toss it. I mean, come on...I'm all about recycling and stuff. So I grabbed my Hot for Teacher Kit and made this:

There was this really cool school-ish black and white scrapbook paper so I started with that and decided to stick with that black and white color scheme. I felt the paper was too dark so I added a wash of diluted white paint. Then I thought it was too light so I broke out my black Dylusions mist. Much better!

After adding some torn pictures from a yearbook page included with the kit, I added some washi tape and pieces from the Wedding Night and Black Out Mixed Media Color Kits.

Done and done! Now I just need to figure out what else is currently hanging on my walls that I can take down and "recharge". :P
