Angels Sing!

Here is the Christmas Challenge image for June from Gecko Galz. 
The little dots you see (and many you can't see) are glitter. 
It's so hard to capture the sparklie goodness.


Beautiful in Yellow

This is the Card Challenge image of June for Gecko Galz.
Now normally I stay away from yellow because to me it's a scary color - LOL!! 
But I conquered my fear and went with it.

I have some language flash cards...this one is Russian for Beautiful. 


Deadly Beauty

Steampunk Opportunity

 Hello Friends...

Hope you are surviving the heat - the "Real Feel" temps here have been over 100 here today and it is expected to continue for at least 7 more days before we "cool off" into the upper 80s - LOL!!

Today I have a fun Steampunk card using the current challenge image at Gecko Galz....

I think the sentiment fits her perfectly ;)

Mermaid Embroidery Hoop Plaque

 A new creation for the Gecko Galz Fantasy Challenge. Each month Gecko Galz shares an image to be used for the current month's challenge. This is the Fantasy Challenge image and what I made with it...

I printed the image on regular copy paper then I applied baby oil over the entire image. I let it dry for 3 days. This process creates a translucent image. I used an old embroidery hoop for the frame, added lots of die-cuts and some real shells to finish it off. 

This is what it looks like in the window...it really does look like she is under the sea! So pleased with how it turned out.

Signs of Summer Flamingo Welcome Sign

Hello Everyone

 New month of challenges over at Gecko Galz. Today I have a project that fits into both the monthly challenge (Signs of Summer) and their quarterly challenge (Altered Wall Plaques). 

I used images from the Flamingo Court Junk Journal kit plus lots of diecuts and the fun plaque that had a funky photo decoupaged on it. A couple coats of paint and a whole new plaque appears!
