The Greatest Pleasure

 This month's Gothic challenge at Gecko Galz is a really fun image...check her out.

I made this fun card...

I cut out a window in the front of the card and hand drew the spider webs on a piece of acetate. I added a touch of color to her lips and eyes but left the rest of her b/w.  

The sentiment reads - The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
So true and I think it fits her perfectly.

Ho Ho Ho...

 This month's Christmas challenge at Gecko Galz is a fun Santa image....

I printed the image twice then fussy cut Santa from the background (which was black). I then cut out the lantern, his hat and the frosty frame from the second image. The lantern and his had were added to the image with a single layer of foam tape and to give it more dimension the frame was added with two layers of foam tape. 

I used some faux fur for his hat trim and ball then added glitter to the frame and lantern. 

Oh I used a vintage page from a ledger (page #25) from 1957 which I painted with a mica watercolor.

Thanks for checking it out...
Have a lovely day!

Create Magic

 Gecko Galz has a new challenge this month...Fantasy!

Here is what I created using this month's image...

I printed the image with muted colors then used some mica watercolor paints to add color to and make it sparkle. I wish I could capture the shimmer. It is so amazing IRL.

I also had the perfect wax seal for the canvas....

Go create some magic of your own!

Viva La Spring!

 Today I have a small journal I made for the monthly challenge over at Gecko Galz. The theme is Ethereal Spring.  I used the Junk Journal kit - Viva La Spring and Charming Words sentiment sheets  along with some Prima papers as well as other bits and pieces from my stash.  I hope you enjoy!
