Happy February! 


It's the month of LOVE and a brand new month of creative challenges with Gecko Galz!

There are a ton of Challenges for you to participate in and you can even grab FREE products from the blog to get you going! You can find the Challenge Blog HERE.  

Our theme in February is Flights of Fancy.




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!!

There is also a Facebook Challenge group for some other fun challenges - and you can find that HERE.



Onto my projects!!!

For Flights of Fancy, I created this altered tin bottlecap! I picked up this base from our local dollar store. The Balloons came from the Flights of Fancy set.




I printed off the images and then fussy cut the balloons and flowers!  I added some floral accents and some 3D bird embellishments along with a cute die cut!

My second project was an Altered Paintbrush!!




The paintbrush was once again from the dollar store!  I printed off the FREE ATC Set from January (you missed this one so be sure to grab this month's HERE). I did use some chalk paste to color the handle gold and then just arranged the cut outs! How fun!!!

Up next....Altered Candles!

 

 

To make the smaller one, I started by printing off the image (this was a freebie image from the blog too!) onto tissue paper using my inkjet printer! I cut out the image and then, using a heat gun, I gently melted the tissue into the wax!! 




For candle #2, I used Mod Podge to decoupage the tissue paper onto the glass jar! I let it dry and then accessorized with flowers and taffeta ribbon.

Finally, I created some Valentine Cards!

The images from these cards came from Sweet Valentine's Paper Pack and the Love Me Do Digital Kit!






Phew! I really stretched my creativity this month and I hope I gave you some inspiration to do the same.

I hope you will check out all the amazing products Gecko Galz has to offer!!   Enjoy and I'll see you soon!

Gecko Galz - 25 Tags of Christmas

Hello again!  


I'm up today with my Tag Creations for Gecko Galz!!


I created two tags for you today.......and I had so much fun creating them!

 



Like how cute is this little deer?  The products I used are from:
- Christmas Spirit

I distressed the edges with brown ink and created a poinsettia die cut. Some gold paste was added for shimmer (what is Christmas without a little shine right?).

Next up:







So for this one I used background paper from Christmas Spirit.

The deer paper is from Compliments of the Season Junk Journal set and the sentiments were from Christmas Spirit. Once again I added clear embossing powder to make it look like the words were actual labels. I also added a white shimmer spray over the whole tag to finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to share more Gecko Galz projects with you! Be sure to head over to the Gecko Galz blog to grab the freebie of the day.

Merry Christmas everyone!
