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!

How adorable are these images??? 

I used a variety of images from the Romantic Little Valentine's Sheet to create these cards!
I simply trimmed the images and embellished with my stash!  I just let creativity flow and tried to not overthink it.




I think this one was my fave!!!




My next project was an altered journal! For this one, I used images from the 




I seriously couldn't decide on a photo!  Hahah - so here they all are!


I printed the images and then fussy cut the owl. I also trimmed out the wing and added some Sparkling Snow glitter for effect. I thought the bow was a fun addition to the winter goddess too.  I loved the sentiment on this image!!!
