Domestic Goddess with Gecko Galz plus a free Digi Stamp

Good morning everyone!  Today is my day over on the Gecko Galz blog and as always, I'm sharing with you here how I created everything.

To start, lay down pieces of lace, punchinella, coins, and squares.  Coat everything with gesso and when dry, spray with LSG Blingy Blonde, Merci Beaucoup Mint, Pineapple Paradise, and Tiffany Lou Blue mists.  Dry well.  Tap out some LSG Curiouser Chartreuse and Tweedle Dee Denim Magicals and mist with water. Dry.  Stencil with Stencil Girl Block stencil and embossing paste.  Cut out images from Domestic Goddess Collage Sheet and adhere to the page.  Outline Domestic Goddess with black watercolor pencil and smudge with a water brush.  Outline all squares with Prussian Blue watercolor pencil and blend with a water brush.  Using the same color, outline Domestic Goddess.  Use a liner brush and Nuance royal blue powder mixed with water to outline page.

Spray LSG Cotton Candy Pink, Pineapple Paradise, and Cheshire Cat Cherry.  Dry until it's just damp and then sprinkle with Tweedle Dee Denim Magicals and lightly mist with water.  Do a little random stenciling with the Prima Flourish stencil and transparent embossing paste (the paste wicks up the spray).  If it's a little too subtle, run some blue chalk ink over the stenciled area.  Cut out images from the Domestic Goddess Collage Sheet and add to the page.  Using a liner brush, outline the entire page with red Nuance powder mixed with water.

These magnets were a breeze to make.  Choose two images from the Let's Get Nautical Collage Sheet and cut out.  Place two pieces of 2x2 memory glass over the images, moving around until you have the composition you want.  Trace around the edges of the glass with a pencil and then trim your images.  Ink edges with Walnut Distress Ink.  Glue the images to the glass using Glossy Accents.  When dry, glue magnets onto the back.

Unfortunately, I misplaced the directions to how to create this 4x4, but I used the With A Glance Collage Sheet, some washi tape, a few words, and a fleur-de-lis stencil.  I kept the color in shades of blue with just a splash of purple.

Yep, another one I lost the instructions to.  This is an ATC I created with this month's free digi stamp available below.  I colored the background with pigment powder first.  The image was printed onto paper, colored with markers, cut out, and then added to the ATC.  I used soft matte gel to add several different colors of prills around the image and stamped DREAM at the top.

And FINALLY, here's your free digital stamp.  Enjoy!

Don't forget to check out the Gecko Galz Etsy store for more great digital collage sheets.
