August Gecko Galz

I know, I know, August is just about over.
You still have time
to play along with the current Customer Challenge

You can find all the deets right here

In keeping with the nautical theme, I made this:
Here is how I created it:

Use a background paper from the Beachy Keen paper set. 
I chose the Lowtide paper
Then crop the image of the kids from one of the sheets in the
Seaside Snapshots Collage Set.
Erase the background from the kids.
Create a piece of paper to match the background paper,
using the eyedropper tool and the paint bucket.
Add the "cus Mom..." words.
Place it over the kids' heads and add an outside glow to it.
Open the "We're all Mad Here" wordart from the
Just Words digital stamp set.
Place it where you want it, duplicating it
and fitting it over top of the kids' heads.
Change the opacity of those words to Multiply.
Add a border, in this case by Created By Jill
and stitching in this case by Akizo.
Merge, save as a jpeg and Viola!
You're done!
(I used Photoshop elements software to do this.)

Now, NOT in the Nautical theme,..
and just to show you that there are all sorts
 of cool images you can get from Gecko Galz
Here are a couple of other pieces I made this month:
For this one I used the
Pretty In Pink Jewel It sheets
and one of the background papers from the
Floral Symphony  paper pak
The woman in this one is from the 
Bohemia Collage Set
and the background paper is one of the
papers in the Flower Power paper pak.

The wordart in both of these pieces is from the
Scripted collage Set.

All of these glorious items can be found in the 

If all of this wasn't enough of a feast for you eyes,
