Guest Designer at Gecko Galz

Sometime last year I was asked if I would be a Guest Designer at Gecko Galz and November has come round so fast.

I have made four projects and would like to share the non-Christmas ones with you today.
Firstly a collage card with an embossed background using the Tim Holtz Cargo mask on coredinations card stock with the letters sanded down.
The image is from Gecko Galz brand new collage sheet ‘Retro Fashions 1’. I layered scraps of paper, washi tape, lace and ephemera to create the collaged corner …….
…… and adhered various metal embellishments to add dimension.
The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings set of stamps.

My second piece is a tag card
The image came from the same Retro Fashions sheet as above and the butterfly is from a bottle cap set they do.
I love the chic feel to this image with the cracked background contrasting with the elegant lady drawn in black and white
Some tissue tape, washi tape and a black border balance the composition at the bottom.
Some rub-ons and a black bow at the top …..
….. and a doiley with inked edges placed behind the focal point to give it more of a feminine feel.
I’m really happy with this one.

We have had some stunning sunsets this week, these photos were taken on Monday night, there was something similar tonight.
From my workroom window.
Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer to your goal.

Enjoy the rest of the week my friends and thanks for stopping by.
