Seaside Shabby Chic

Welcome to August, peeps!
And welcome to a month of a new challenge at
Isn't that an awesome theme for the month?

Here is something I made for this theme:

This was such a fast and easy
piece to make.
I use Photoshop Elements for my digital scrapbooking.

The background is a paper from the
Seaside Paper Pak
I used the Summer Girls collage Sheet set
for the image of the woman.
I cropped it, then placed it over top of the background paper.
I erased around it.
Then I added the sign icon from
the Seaside Craft Kit,
along with a post from my stash.
I merged the layers and applied a film grain filter.
Lastly, a stitched border, again from my vast stash
and we're done!
How much easier could it be?!
(The truth is, I almost forgot to do this in time
for the new month and had to whip it
up really quickly last night at midnight-lol)

But you don't need any reason to miss out on participating in this fun 
August Customer Challenge.
You can get all of the Gecko Galz products I used at
our Etsy Shop, and lots more!

You'll want to check it out and hopefully you will play along with us.

Feature Day

Today  is my day to be featured on the 
for our 
Midsummer Night's Dream Monthly Challenge theme.
Here are my samples for the month, along with
the Gecko Galz products I used to make them:

Midsummer Night's Dream Collage Sheets Set
Nouveau Garden paper pak
Butterfly Dreams paper pak
Butterfly from the Parisian Garden Craft kit

Midsummer Night's Dream Collage Sheets Set
Magnolia Blossoms paper pak

Midsummer Night's Dream Collage Sheets Set
Wonderful Watercolour ATC backgrounds set
Namaste paper pak
flower from the La Boheme Craft kit
Charming Words Collage Sheet Set

If you have been here before,
you know how I make these digital pieces.
Using PSE13, I layer
the images, papers and icons I want,
accenting them with borders and brushes
from my monster stash.  lol
I seem to be on an "add a stroke to everything" kick,
so I have done that with each layer this month.
It will pass. haha

And in the case of my second sample, I did add a beautiful frame
by Kimeric Kreations.  Kim passed about a year ago and
her talent and generosity in sharing that
talent knew no bounds.
I still miss her.

You have until the end of the month to
Midsummer Night's Dream 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!
