Gecko Galz Design Team December Tags

Hello dear friends,
Today I am sharing my December tags for Gecko Galz. I enjoy making tags and love to send them to friends during the Christmas season, for them to display and use them in their holiday decorations.
The darling images are from Gecko Galz the Christmas chic collage sheet for the darling woman with tree and Retro Christmas for the stylized deer.
Let me tell you how I made these:
For the Christmas Cheer Tag:
I painted the tag in a distressed pink paint edged in blue with the sentiment Christmas Cheer, rubbed on.  Next came a layer of tulle, a blue under Paper piece then the darling Gecko Galz image was next. The added embellishments were braid, plastic snow flakes and Stickles for some added shine.
For the Happy Holidays Tag:
Using printed paper I fringed the edges,  I layered tulle then pink and blue under paper and finally  the retro deer image. The embellishments were silver edging, Happy Holidays sentiment and Stickles for shine.

So that's how I made these tags, I hope you enjoy making your tags this season.
Artfully yours,

August Gecko Galz Design Team Cards By the Shore

Today friends I am being featured on the Gecko Galz website as part of the Design Team. You can see the cards using all Gecko Galz images,  that I made for this month.  I stamped, stenciled and painted all the backgrounds, layered the images and then added embellishments. The final touch is always the sentiments.

The theme this month is "By the Shore" for the Gecko Galz customer challenge, if you participate you can even win prizes. Please come check us out. All my projects are mermaid related, so they can all be found by the shore. LOL. If you know just one thing about me, it is that I adore mermaids. When I was young, I wanted to grow up and be one, need I say more?
Thank you for visiting today.
Hope you have a beautiful week.
Take care,
