Having Fun with Gecko Galz Collage Sheets; ATCs & Journal Pages & a Free Digi Stamp

Good morning everyone!  I've got quite a few projects to share with your today.  ATCs and Journal Pages I created using the wonderful collage pages produced by Gecko Galz.  And of course, I have your free image for this month.

First up, a trio of ATCs.

I used an image from Beach Babes Collage Sheet over a background created with Paper Artsy paints in Baltic Blue, Granny Smith, and Snowflake.  The anchor is by Petticoat Parlor.

This ATC uses images from By The Sea Collage Sheet over a background created with Paper Artsy paints in Caribbean Sea, Captain Peacock, and Snowflake.  The clouds are by Um Wow.

And finally for this ATC, I again used an image from By The Sea Collage Sheet over a background created with Paper Artsy paints in Mermaid, Beach Hut, and South Pacific.  The seashell is by Petticoat Parlor.

I love this journal page.  I started by painting the page with black acrylic paint.  When that dried, I painted a thin coat of white acrylic paint over a roughly square section where I wanted my image to go.  I then stenciled several suns using Joggles Here Comes The Sun stencil and Dylusions Lemon Zest paint.  Next I stenciled arrows along the edges using TCW Arrows and Hearts and Dylusions Cut Grass.  I decided I needed a little yellow where my image was going so painted a little of the Lemon Zest over the white.  I then cut out You Are My Sunshine from the Beautiful Words Collage Sheet and glued it to my page.  At the last second, I added some Art Ingredients Micro Beads in Pollen and Grass across my page.

And finally, here's the journal page I created using this month's Free Digi Stamp.  I colored my stamp with Twinking H2O's and then cut out the part I wanted to use.  For the background, I used Hero Art's Wildflower Garden and green ink.  I then stenciled with the Tim Holtz Latticework stencil and Art Anthology Stucco.  I splattered on red, orange, white, black, and brown ink and then began layering.  I used a couple of complementary pieces of paper cut slightly larger than my digi stamp image and glued them down.  I slipped diecuts from the Sizzix Wildflower Thinklits set between layers and added some floral accents from Little B.

That brings us to this.......your free stamp!  Enjoy!

Thank you for joining me today.  Until later...............
