By The Shore

It's a new month at
and that means we have a new
Customer Challenge!
This month's theme is 
By The Shore

and I made this to help you start thinking about what you are going to make:

There is only one rule, and that is you need to use at least ONE  product from Gecko Galz
It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital papers!!  It is up to you!!
The winner will receive a  Gecko Galz Shopping Spree!!
How can you not play along?!

These are the Gecko Galz products I used for this:

Sea Side Papers
Sea Side Icons
Sea Side snapshots
Just Words

The background is a sea side paper
Over that I put the sea side snapshot and added
a frame
I placed a border overlay over that 
(Manu Zimmerman, Lara's Digital World)
I relolored it to match the icon in the top left.
I placed seaside side icons where I thought they would look good.
I finished it off with wordart from the 
Just Words collage sheet.
I can't wait to see what you make!

Make it the way you want it, just by layering!

And thanks for stopping by!

Mermaids Galore!

It's mermaid month at Gecko Galz!
And I used the new Pretty Mermaid Collage Sheets
For the first one, I cropped the image and
used a photo mask on it, then
placed it over top of a paper from the 
Easter Parade Paper Pak.
Then I used the same photo mask and placed that over
a paper from the Foral Symphony Paper Pak.
Same mask again, and over a paper from the
La Isla Paper Pak.
I applied a bevel style and
placed that layer over top of the same paper from the
La Isla Paper Pak.
Another bevel.
And we're done!

For this one, I cropped the image and 
used the same photo mask as I did
with the last sample.
Placed that over a paper from the
Ombre Paper Pak.
Photo mask again, then over top of
a paper from the
In Marble Halls Paper Pak.
Added the wordart from the
Gecko Galz In Other Words
collage sheet, to which I
applied a color burn blend mode.
I finished it with an overlay edge by 
 Berna Datema and
some glitter stars.

This last one was no more complicated than the last two.
Cropped the image
Used an photo mask
Over a paper from the
La Isla Paper Pak.
Added a border overlay by
Captivated Visions.

All these are simply one photo mask
(by Syndee Nuckles), the glorious
Pretty Mermaids collage sheet set and
a whole bunch of different
Gecko Galz papers.
Just layering over layering!

All you need to do is check out all the goodies at

and if you don't do digital art,
keep in mind you can use any of these awesome
papers and images for real-live paper 
scrapbooking  and card-making!
