Magic in the Moonlight

Hello friends!
Electra here, hoping
to inspire you a little bit with my digital creations for
this month's 
Gecko Galz Customer Challenge
Moonlight and Magic
I tried to choose some products which
seemed to have the aura of those two things
and I am pretty happy with what I made:

For my first sample I used
the Moonbeams Collage sheet, 
a paper from the In Marble Halls paper pak 
and wordart from the 
In Other Words digital stamp set

Using Photoshop Elements photo-editing software,
I chose a paper for the background.
I cropped the image I wanted from the collage sheet
and placed it over that.
On top is an icon from the Curiosity Shop Craft kit.
I used some items from my stash:
the border, frame, overlay and flourish.

To make this:
Over top of the background paper, place
the cropped image of your choice.
Add your chose border and frame.
Place the wordart over top.
Then add any overlays you like
to give some texture/magical quality,
on both the main image and the wordart.
The flourish goes on top.

This second sample uses the following
Gecko Galz products:
another paper from the
In Marble Halls paper pak
the Golden Splendors Collage Sheet
Scripted Collage Sheet wordart

Here is how it was made:
Crop your favorite image from the collage sheet and
place it over the background paper.
Place the wordart on top of that.

That is the basic process:
I added frames, borders and stars and
a lot of glitter styles.

(Everything is better with bling)


For my last sample I used:
another paper from the
In Marble Halls paper pak
(Can you tell it's one of my favorite paper paks?)
A cropped image from the
Fairy Dust Collage Sheet
and more wordart from the Scripted Collage Sheet Set.
(also one of my faves)

I followed the very same layering process
that I use for all of my digital projects.
1. background paper
2. image
3. wordart
4. frame, borders, the lined and star brushes
5. and a tiny black stroke around the wordart

Easy-Peasy, Lemon Squeezie!

Isn't it pretty?

February Moonlight and Magic

Welcome to February
Gecko Galz Gurls!
(and maybe some Gecko Galz Guys?)

It's time for a brand new
Customer Challenge:
February Moonlight and Magic

for my sample, I used the
Gecko Galz products:
Nouveau Goddess Jewels and
In Dreams ATC background

which you can find in our
Etsy shop here

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 !

My sample is digital and I used
Photoshop Elements to create it.

I cropped the background paper and placed it on a new
document 2.5" x 3.5", the size of an ATC.

I then cropped the image I wanted from the
Nouveau Goddess Jewel It 1x2 collage sheet
and placed that over top of the background.
I applied a reverse bevel to it.

Then I added the wordart which is by
Cottage  Arts and added an outside glow to that.

I added some free sparkly brushes over top 
on a new layer from Brusheezy in white.

And it's done!

You have until the end of the month to
join in with our  
Moonlight and Magic challenge
and you can find more glorious examples
from the rest of our talented Design Team 

Will we see you there?
I sure hope so.
And thanks for coming by here!
