My Inability to Follow Directions

So this is what was posted for the coming week's  The Three Muses challenge:
 let's use a small black and white photo WITHIN a colorful art page. 

I however, did two big photos on a scrapbook,
non-artsy pastel page.
But it is what it is.
And I don't care.
And yes, that IS me.

Seaside Fun!

Have you seen the gorjuss new digital papers
and collage sheets at 
There are so many fun ones to choose from!
I had a blast making these samples for this month's theme over at
The theme is
BY THE SHORE

products used:

Timeless Paper pak
Flower Power Paper Pak
brushes and masks by Amanda Sok
Sea Side Icons from the 
Sea Side Splendor Digital Kit 
Cuties by the Shore Collage Sheet


products used:

Timeless Paper Pak
Splish Splash Paper Pak
brushes and masks by Amanda Sok
Sea Side Icons from the 
Sea Side Splendor Digital Kit 
Splish Splash Collage Sheet


products used:

Timeless Paper Pak

brushes and masks by Amanda Sok
Sea Side Icons from the
Sea Side Splendor Digital Kit
Cuties by the Shore Collage Sheet

The process I use for these is all the same.
And as you see, I used a lot of the same products.
Gecko Galz products are so versatile and the
collage sheets have so many images to choose from!
I choose two papers, one for the background
and one, which, with a mask of my choice, I layer over top
of the first paper.
I crop the collage sheet image I want, and again, use a mask, 
and again, put it over top of the last item.
I add some sea side icons, placing them over or under the main image,
wherever I like.
I erase any parts I don't want.
Sometimes I add a border overlay or not,
depending on my mood. lol
And maybe some words and/or brushes.

Use your creativity to the max!!

I went with a vintage theme this month, but
there are retro, mermaid, swimming pool and
all sorts of digital stamps, papers and collage sheets 
that are perfect for this theme!

I probably don't have to remind you, but
our Customer challenge is running
until the end of the month
and that gives you lots of time
so make something wonderful!
Get all the deets
I'll see you
(and your terrific art) there soon!

By The Shore

It's a new month at
and that means we have a new
Customer Challenge!
This month's theme is 
By The Shore

and I made this to help you start thinking about what you are going to make:

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  Gecko Galz Shopping Spree!!
How can you not play along?!

These are the Gecko Galz products I used for this:

Sea Side Papers
Sea Side Icons
Sea Side snapshots
Just Words

The background is a sea side paper
Over that I put the sea side snapshot and added
a frame
I placed a border overlay over that 
(Manu Zimmerman, Lara's Digital World)
I relolored it to match the icon in the top left.
I placed seaside side icons where I thought they would look good.
Finally
I finished it off with wordart from the 
Just Words collage sheet.
I can't wait to see what you make!

Make it the way you want it, just by layering!

And thanks for stopping by!
