A Mermaid's Birthday

Today  I  am sharing a sweet little Mermaid party for a dear friends daughter's birthday party.
Here are some photos of the layered birthday card,  gift tag and the gift bag that I painted for that occasion. I don't  usually get to do creations for little children so, it was great fun. As you know, I  have always adored mermaids, even before it became popular. LOL. I am also sharing a picture of the venue for the darling party too.

Enjoy these mermazing creations,
Gerri

Gecko Galz September Feature Designer

Hello Friends,
Today I am the featured designer over at Gecko Galz. I have made some greeting cards for your inspiration using Gecko Galz images. Stop by Gecko Galz for more inspiration and prizes too.
To make my cards I start with card stock, then layer Patterned paper, Gecko Galz Steampunk images and other tiny printed images. The embellishments come last...they are Stickels glitter , Liquid Pearls dimensional paint , Watercolor Paint, Fibers(Lace) , Stickers and some form of sentiment. I have learned that you need 4 or 5 layers to get a complete collage look for your cards. Hope you enjoy these greeting cards. Have a Happy week. Gerri


Enjoy

Gecko Galz August Feature Designer

Hello Friends,
Today I am featured over at Gecko Galz as the Designer of the Day. As it is summer time, I am continuing with a seaside theme for you using Gecko Galz products. I adore the variety of images they have to offer, you should check them out. Here are how I made these cards:
I started with a gelli printed card base as a  background and stamped some starfish and sea urchins.  I layered the Gecko Galz image from Summer Seas collage sheet and die cut mermaid tails that was cut out of gelli printed paper. Some glitter, sequin shells with pearls, the sentiments  came next and I was all done.

Enjoy the summer while we can,
Artfully yours,

Gecko Galz Design Team July 2019 Projects

Hello Friends near and far,
Today I am the featured Designer at the  Gecko Galz Blog,  come check out my work and all the other inspiration artists on this site for great ideas. Here are some cards for inspiration using images from the Gecko Galz Mid Summer Night Dream collage.


"Dream" by Gerri Herbst


"Imagine" by Gerri Herbst

"Hello" by Gerri Herbst
To make the first  card I started with white card stock  and  added tissue paper before using my gelli plate to print the background. I layered the red paper and then the Mushroom and Fairies image from the Gecko Galz sheet entitled "Mid Summer Dreams". Some dried real botanicals came next with the  finish touch of the sentiment "Dream" that I water colored to match. The other two  started with a background that I did using  my gelli plate to print.  I layered some handmade fiber paper  and then the images from the Gecko Galz sheet entitled "Mid Summer Dreams". Some dried real botanicals or die cut botanicals  came next with the  finishing  touch of the sentiments. One card reads "Imagine" .and the other card  simply says "Hello".

Hope you have a colorful week,
Gerri
