The month of Courtly Love

Today is my turn to be featured on the Gecko Galz Blog
for this month's theme of
Courtly Love.
Isn't that a lovely theme to
start the new year with?
I made three digital projects using the new
Vintage Flirtations Collage Sheet Set.




(I use Photoshop Elements 13)

For all three, I cropped the individual
image that I wanted and applied a photo mask.
(I used Amanda Sok masks)
Then I placed the image over one of the
Gecko Galz Paper Paks.
(The first two used papers from the
Courtly Love Paper Pak, the second has
a background paper from the
St. Peter's Square Paper Pak

Then I overlaid a frame/border:

First sample: 
frame from
Gecko Galz Fab Frames College Sheet Set
Finecrafted Designs border over that 

Second Sample:
frame from
Gecko Galz Fab Frames College Sheet Set
overlay by Vinnie Pearce over that

Third Sample:
Border lace overlay by Brandy Murray

To finish them off:

1. Wordart by Gecko Galz
All You Need Is Love digital Stamp Set
set to Multiply blend

2. Just the word, 
in a porcelain regular font
and a flourish brush by Amanda Sok.

3. Wordart by Gecko Galz
from the "In Other Words" 
digital stamp set
and a flourish brush by Amanda Sok.

And that's it!

I am happy to have any questions you may have,

for months now nor have I created anything

Courtly Love

Happy New Year Peeps!
Are you ready for a new challenge?

Courtly Love

You're going to play along with us, right?
The only rule is that you must use at least one Gecko Galz product!
And you can find all sorts of them

This is what I made for you to help you get started:
I used the Crazy Animals collage sheet

The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz Shopping Spree !

This was so easy to make.

I cropped the image I wanted out 
of the Crazy Animals Collage Sheet

Then I placed it over that pretty paper
from the Love Potion #9 Paper Pak
and erased the background.
I framed the picture of
the Lovebirds with a glitter
overlay by Finecrafted Designs.
I put that concoction over
a pink background paper I had in my
digital stash.
On a new layer I made some frilly white
stamps with a brush and I
applied a bevel style to them
for some texture.

To finish it off I added a heart by Pink Lotty, 
a frame from my stash,
and the word "Love" in white,
using the text tool.

Be sure to check out the samples
from the rest of the design team on the
