Gecko Galz Under The Big Top

It's circus time at Gecko Galz!
Yesirree, boys and girls, 
it's time for that magic only a circus can bring to you!
How about I show you up close and personal
what's happening at our circus?

These are so easy with any Digital Editing software
I use Photoshop elements 13
All I did with each was:

1. crop the main figure
I wanted to use from the collage sheet,
2. place it over the paper of my choice,
3. erase the parts of the image that I did not want
4. Add the wordart over top
5. Add a border overlay that you like
6. embellish it with any (free) brushes
I liked in colors to match
the main image.
Easy Peasy!

and then I remembered that I made this a few days ago:

not even two years old and my granddaughter already loves playing dress-up

I don't get to post my scrapbooking layouts here much,
 so I just figured I would slip this one in.

So, when I did this piece, I decided to take my own advice
and will ask that you read the very first post on my page.

If we don't ask,
we don't get.
And I know I have good friends in the art community.
So I am taking a risk.

Thanks for coming by!


DISCLAIMER:     I love the queen.  Really.  I'm a monarchist.
(Except for the amount we spend on her and her minions)
But, when I saw this image in Googleland, 
I couldn't help myself.

Not much more to say.

And for the record, I grew up in the 50's and
yes, my mother DID always put on her
lipstick/"face" before she did

We've come a long way, Baby!

On another note,
 I have decided to share with you what is happening in my life
and will ask that you read the very first post on my page.

If we don't ask,
we don't get.
And I know I have good friends in the art community.

So I am taking a risk.
