  • their blog houses a brand new, highly talented design team and;

Oh and I almost forgot ...... they'd like to give one of you a full collection of their 'mixedmedia colour kits', because they're generous llike that! During the two years I was on their design team I had a ton of fun sifting through these kits. Here's a few of the projects I added the colourful delights to:
And here's my favourite ever colour kit project - which I made as part of Copy+Paste's handmade gift workshop series '12 Days':Not only have GA put effort into combining lots of fascinating, colour-themed items into thekits, they and their their blog blog readers have been re-naming each kit with its own gauchley appropriate name.

I won't go through them all now but never could I write that I'd been using 'Pink Parts' and 'Banan Hammock' without sniggering to myself. [Like right now!].

Mixed-media colour kits [from

  2. Then come back here and leave us a comment answering the following question:
  • What would your own colour name be?
  • [Don't worry - it doesn't need to be anything as gauche as 'Pink Parts' - just choose something that suits you and that grabs our attention!].

Ha! Love the "Lady Marmelade" - a posh, French version of the word Marmalade too...

Mine would be "Yay! It's Yellow!", because, well, it absolutely, has to be, should always be... just yellow!

Thanks for the chance to win a prize!

Oooo I love to play with unusual bits and pieces, these kits are divine! I think mine would be called Summer Medley. I live for the summer and all things that are happy and bright.

jennifer said...

Ooh I love Gauche Alchemy stuff. The 'wedding night' collection caught my eye, but my own colour name would be 'peacock petals' because I love pretty shades of blue & green.

Claireliz said...

All of those kits are so yummy, thanks for the chance to win a fab prize, I got a bit carried away with this one & came up with Plumtastic Pudding for deep purples, damsons & golds. Passionately Pink - for all things pink. Blackcherry Chocolate - for the rich colours of a Black Forest Gateaux & Everafter Evergreen for sparkly green colours :)

Wowser, super cool store. I'm bookmarking!

My color lately can be described as "Coral Floral".

To explain (here is when you find out I'm not good at describing colors) it is a color which isn't red enough, isn't pink enough and isn't orange enough - but a magnificent mix of all the above.

rockchickhelen said...

Hmm... I guess mine would be Pink Perversion cos i'm a bit dirty-minded and i'm always making dirty jokes!

Jules said...

What a great idea! I've been scrapping lots of pics of a trip to Borneo recently, using lots of lush greens, and bright oranges and yellows, so I guess my colour would be 'Jungle Fever' :oD

Becky said...

I love pale blues and lilacs at the moment and as I have been scrapping my caravan photos I think I'd call it Caravan Cool!

Elizabeth said...

I'm fancying Mellow Yellow or Red Romance.

Clair said...

Oooh, kinda loving the retro stylings of the ACME kit. If there's a kit that could be made up of that luscious hot pink then I'd like to call it 'Campervan Candy.'

lynmcf said...

Hmmm that's a good question, I think the weather is influencing me so it would have to be perfectly purple ... the colour of my favourite wooly scarf!

Tinkersdamn said...

Noticing there's no metallic pack... so... Bling It On! :D

rockchickhelen said...

Actually can I change mine, think Colour Bomb is more me. My wardrobe is full of bright and/or patterned clothes so I think that's more appropriate for me.

Donna said...

What a fabulous store. I think my colour would be firey sunset - you could get all my faves in that.

Alison said...

Great store! My suggestion would be 'Zing went the strings of my heart' - lots of hot, bright, zingy colours - lime green, hot pink, bright yellow and orange, turquoise ...

Steenie said...

I think I would be somewhere in between "Golden Sunshine" and "Outrageous Orange". ;) love you guys.

Bec said...

Whimsical White Vintage or Eclectic White Wonders!!
Love this shop! Thanks for sharing it!

The Lone Dollier said...

How about Rockin' Red?

Carmen said...

Hmmmm... Purple Daze or Black of Beyond :P Cos I never know where I am from one day to the next and them be my favourite colours ooh yes.

Late comer to the party here, still, I like to think I'm fashionably late *ahem*

Natalie Elphinstone said...

I'm more of a neutral kind of gal. I like my browns and creams and soft colours. It kind of reminds me of desserts so it would probably be something like 'Chocolate Gateau'

Cassie said...

I love GA Kits!!!
I think I would be Scarlet Letter...but don't go hiding your husbands. =)

Alicia said...

I LOVE all the existing kits and names for them, but MY kit would be a variety of all of the colors, a literal rainbow of delights, and I'd call it "Crazy Lady" :)

Carolyn Phillips said...

They look wonderful and I love those names.
I love greens, browns, blues neutrals, outdoor colours so think my name for a pack would be..
Muddy Waters.
