Fantasy challenge

 One great thing about scorching heat is it drives a person indoors to do what else???? Create!!! I am back with the July Fantasy challenge over on the Gecko Galz blog.  https://geckogalzscrapbooking.blogspot.com/p/gecko-galz-stamp-challenge.html

Lots of time to take part and great prizes up for grabs!!! Here is my take on the fantasy challenge.


This is now going to be a flip in my art journal - very pleased with how it turned out.  Lots of glitter (hard to see) scraps and this cool butterful from my stash.  Remember to create like crazy and cut with wild abandon.  Thanks for stopping by!!!

Sea of Dreams July Gecko Galz Challenge


Today's share for Gecko Galz Design Team has to do with Sea of Dreams.  First up is my dreamy collage featuring this gorgeous image from Oceans Blue Collage Sheet. 


But I couldn't just stop at one image from Oceans Blue so collge sheet number  2 happened!!
 


And finally I altered a tin with Oceans Blue and the Fish Camp collage sheets - perfect for that special gift!!!  I love to repurpose things - especially when they can get another life.



These gorgeous cards were made with the  June card Kit - so versatile and so fun to use!!!





Have a great day.  Remember to creat like crazy and cut with wild abandon.

Gecko Galz's Signs of Summer

 Hello there.  Today is my day to share my June Gecko Galz Design Team projects.  Our theme is Signs of Summer so my projects are full of fun, color and summer!!!  The summer sign is made from upcycled baseboards that my wonderful hubby cut for me.  I covered them with Mintay turquoise chalk paint and gorgeous images from the Umberlla cuties and Tiki Time Junk Journal.



My am so loving the 12x12 layouts and of course my hubby is my favorite subject!!! Here I used a combination of  Gecko Galz images from the Seaside Splendor image kit, Graphic 45 papers and Mintay Chippies.

Then it was time for some sassy cards combining Gecko Galz's Umbrella Cuties, Tiki Time Junk Journal, Seaside Splendor image kit and Sweet Summer Days. 








My final collages were simply burst of colour that made my heart happy!!! I blew up the Spring Blossom's Tin Topper for the background, added images from the Owl Be Seeing You collage sheet for the one and then added another Owl image to the Douces Fleurs collection.



Thanks for looking.  Remember to create like crazy and cut with wild abandon.
