It's a New Year!

(and thank goodness for that!)
and a new year at
Gecko Galz means
the Design Team
(with some very talented new members)
 is busy
creating all sorts of inspiration for you!
I used a couple of
papers from the new
"In Marble Halls" paper pak and images from the
"Ring In The New Year" collage sheet set for these two pieces:

Aren't those fun?  
So easy to do, especially the second one.
I just sampled the colours from this beautiful sheet
flipped the image, added a cropped and masked image
of the woman and then went crazy with brushes in those
amazing colours!
For this next one, I cropped the puppy on the bicycle from
the "Dog Gone Cute" Jewel Sheet.
Isn't he just Doggone Cute?

I added the cool frame
(and I'm sorry, it's from my stash and
I can't remember who it's from)
I placed that over another GREAT paper from the 
"In Marble Halls" paper pak
Picked up the colour grey from the doggie's background
and coloured a basic mask I made with that colour.
I cropped the words from the "Scripted" Collage Sheet
and added one of the Gecko Galz Frames.
Finally, I merged the layers and 
applied a Film Grain filter.
I think that is one of the quickest pieces I've done lately.
Don't tell anyone, but my first sample
took two hours and had at one point 34 layers.
That's not a record, but it's close. lol

I certainly am.
And I made one thing to get you started...
Isn't that little girl sitting on the park bench just the sweetest thing ever?
You can find her and all sorts of other
delightful elements at the

items to enter our monthly challenges)
