Enjoy The Journey

It's almost August, isn't it?
What have you made for the July Customer Challenge at 

What?!?  You haven't done anything yet?
Well, get at it, girlfriend!!

I used the Up, Up and Away Collage Sheet set 
in each of my samples this month.
I LOVE balloons!

The other Gecko Galz products I used in each sample were:
1. Courtly Love Paper Pak
Charming Words Collage Sheet Set

2. Portabello Paper Pak
Versailles Paper Pak
Charming Worlds Collage Sheet Set

3. Butterfly Drreams Paper Pak
Charming Words Collage Sheet Set

My processes are always the same:
Crop the image I want to use, and the wordart I want to use.
Layer it over a background paper or two.
I may or may not change the blending mode.
Add a border and maybe use a brush, 
both from my stash.
Voila!! Done!!

You know the rules with our challenges:

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 $25 Gecko Galz Shopping Spree!

And you also know that you can find these awesome 
Gecko Galz images, wordarts and papers at

your $25 Shopping Spree if you win!!

So get to it, my friend! 
We always look forward to seeing your creations!

Happy Canada Day!

That has nothing to do with our new
July Gecko Galz Challenge.
I just felt like wishing you a Happy Canada Day!

Speaking of Canada, why don't you come up this summer and say Hi?
And take some photos.  And do a scrapbook LO.
And enter it in our new challenge:
Mind you, you'll need to come up here before the end of July.
But you can do that, right?

OK, ok, even if you don't come visit, there are
LOTS of awesome travel-themed products in the 

I made this little piece to get you thinking:

The Gecko Galz products I used for my sample are

Postcards From Abroad Collage Sheet

First Class Passage and
St Peters Square paper paks

That pretty font I used for the words is Porcelain.
I found it free on one of the many free font sites.
Basically, I cropped the image I wanted from the collage sheet.
And layered it over repeated layers of the background papers.
In between the layers, I used a brush by Amanda Sok, 
pulling the colours from the original image.

I finished it with the words.
I think it may have taken 20 minutes.
I love Digital art.

But just in case you don't do digital,
This could just as easily be done by printing the 
various layers and image and
cutting them out and stacking them.
Easy as pie.

(Although I have never made an
especially good pie)

What are you going to make
for this month's 

The only requirement is that you use
at least one item from the amazing
Gecko Galz Etsy shop

I look forward to seeing your creation.

Electra, off to celebrate Canada a bit more.
Over and Out.
