My Inability to Follow Directions

So this is what was posted for the coming week's  The Three Muses challenge:
 let's use a small black and white photo WITHIN a colorful art page. 

I however, did two big photos on a scrapbook,
non-artsy pastel page.
But it is what it is.
And I don't care.
And yes, that IS me.

Seaside Fun!

Have you seen the gorjuss new digital papers
and collage sheets at 
There are so many fun ones to choose from!
I had a blast making these samples for this month's theme over at
The theme is

products used:

Timeless Paper pak
Flower Power Paper Pak
brushes and masks by Amanda Sok
Sea Side Icons from the 
Sea Side Splendor Digital Kit 
Cuties by the Shore Collage Sheet

products used:

Timeless Paper Pak
Splish Splash Paper Pak
brushes and masks by Amanda Sok
Sea Side Icons from the 
Sea Side Splendor Digital Kit 
Splish Splash Collage Sheet

products used:

Timeless Paper Pak
Splish Splash Paper Pak

brushes and masks by Amanda Sok
Sea Side Icons from the
Sea Side Splendor Digital Kit
Cuties by the Shore Collage Sheet

The process I use for these is all the same.
And as you see, I used a lot of the same products.
Gecko Galz products are so versatile and the
collage sheets have so many images to choose from!
I choose two papers, one for the background
and one, which, with a mask of my choice, I layer over top
of the first paper.
I crop the collage sheet image I want, and again, use a mask, 
and again, put it over top of the last item.
I add some sea side icons, placing them over or under the main image,
wherever I like.
I erase any parts I don't want.
Sometimes I add a border overlay or not,
depending on my mood. lol
And maybe some words and/or brushes.

Use your creativity to the max!!

I went with a vintage theme this month, but
there are retro, mermaid, swimming pool and
all sorts of digital stamps, papers and collage sheets 
that are perfect for this theme!

I probably don't have to remind you, but
our Customer challenge is running
until the end of the month
and that gives you lots of time
so make something wonderful!
Get all the deets
I'll see you
(and your terrific art) there soon!
