Gecko Galz July Design Team Projects

Hello Friends,
Today I am featured as a designer at Gecko Galz. I am sharing with you several  cards with the theme of travel using the "Postcards from Abroad" collage sheet from Gecko Galz. Come visit us and share in the fun. My formula for making cards is to start with a base layer of paper that can be printed or painted. Next layer more papers and add the Gecko Galz image on top. The embellishments come next like flowers, rhinestones, ribbons or German scrap. The sentiment comes last with lots of glitter highlights. Now its time for you to try it!
Artfully yours,
Gerri

Hearts Galore

Hi Friends,
I believe hearts are not only for Valentine's day but are a year round motif. Here are two different uses of hearts on my handmade cards. I used stencils, stamps and even a heart punch.
Hope your week is filled with love,
Gerri

Colorful June 2018 Gecko Galz Design Team Feature

Hello Friemds near and far,
Today is my feature design team highlight at Gecko Galz. These two cards are quite bright when compared to my usual palette. I enjoyed stepping out of the box this month.
The first called "Flirt" used the Summer Sweetie Gecko Galz Collage sheet and the second is "Be yourself" which used the Aloha Gecko Galz Sheet. Both started with gelli printing a card base then layering the Gecko Galz fabulous image, adding a floral accent, some trim and the sentiment. The final touch in all my projects is some glittery Stickles accents!
Hope you are having a colorful week.
Artfully yours,
Gerri

The same but different

Hi there,

When I find a color scheme I like ....I seem to use it in all my art creations. Here is a Robins Egg Blue, Hot Pink and Yellow theme. I used it to make a "Welcome home "card  for  a wonderful couple and then it popped up in my abstract painting. It's the same but different. LOL.

Hope you find a colorful inspiration this week.
Artfully yours,
Gerri
