Paris kiss

For Gecko Galz here is a card that I made using one of their collage sheets. I love the naughty dressing room shots. Oh La la! While I was out and about recently,  I was in Urban Outfitters in Savannah and they had a sweeping 3 story  high dressing room with numerous crystal chandeliers. I snapped a quick photo and this was my dressing room inspiration for this card.

To make this card I started with an image from the risqué women Gecko Galz  August collage sheet. Her image was framed in black then layered on printed paper and placed on a gold card front. A bit of black lace, a pearl stick pin and a stamped Paris tag add interest. The final accents include tiny pearls, gold edge stickers and gold Stickles.

Hope you will be a little risque this week!
Take care, Gerri

Turning heads

For Gecko Galz Design team, I've created  a tag today. I like making tags but always seem to try to explode them of the surface, no flat tags for me! This one was an experiment in color using a light jade green and red, I do think it works. If I only listened to my daughter, who said at an early age, I don't know what you are worried about all colors go together. I now have to agree!

Here is a tag using an image from risqué women  August collage sheets. I started with a music paper tag and colored it with water color paint. It was layered on a solid burgundy paper. Some burgundy paper flower confetti, black lace and gold Stickles accented the tie. A gold tie, black rhinestones and  the words "turning heads" complete this piece. 

Hope you will turn some heads this week.
take care, gerri

Colorful Free Spirit

Today for Retro Cafe Art I am showing you a bracelet . MaryLou is away,l  so sorry she isn't in the photo.... plus she doesn't have any arms. LOL. I adore making Jewelry  its fun, easy and helps my pocket book too! It also is such a conversation starter. I'm sure you have been asked about your jewelry from time to time and to be complimented on something you made is such a great feeling.

Well to make this piece I started with  Mini fairy bloom floral cut outs and painted them each with two colors.Stamping came next. I stacked and glued them together adding some Stickles and Rhinestones for shine, I glued them to a piece of braid and attached a claso. and that was that.

Hope you will get  something sparkley this week.
artfully yours, gerri

Time is flowing backwards

For Retro cafe art here  is one of my all time favorites pieces,(at least for this month!), I call it an exploded ATC. The title is "Don't you wish time could flow backwards".... sometimes I do, especially when I see my beautiful baby girl all grown up and off to conquer the world! I remember when I got my first job and then apartment in NYC, it was a very thrilling time.

Well ,to  make this I started with the inside of a Fancy Frame shaped ATC center and covered it in foil. I over stamped it with my favorite script stamp. It was layered with a transparent clock image  from the Steampunk Collage sheet and then a moth cut out with the haunting face image from the RCA collage sheet Screen Sirens. This was put on the collage sheet image and then clear gold border stickers were attached. The back fan is actually an image of a  typewriter inside from the RCA Steampunk collage sheet that I added german scrap to. Some rhinestones, Stickles and the hand cut sentiment which reads Time is flowing backwards.

Hope you be able to have time flow backwards....
artfully yours,

Time is flowing backwards
