Gecko Galz feature

Hi, today my projects are featured on the Gecko Galz blog. I am also sharing them here, so let's get started! (Be sure to get your free Gecko Galz Halloween digi image below this post).

First up is a card, using paper from the Freak Show paper pack for the background. Next, I cut a scalloped circle from black cardstock and also added a gold doily. The image was sized in Photoshop and is from the Halloween Kids ephemera sheet #2. Final touches were three black enamel dots and letter stickers to spell "BOO".

My second project is a journal page. Here is the supply list and directions:

Gecko Galz - Arsenic and Lace paper #7, Icons #9, #15 and #22, Freak Show paper #2, Hocus Pocus paper pack (Harvest Moon)

My stash - large Dylusions journal, Dylusions ink sprays, bow, black & purple patterned papers, cage skirt die by Character Constructions

Directions: I began by spraying the journal page with orange and black inks. I let the page dry overnight, then applied the large piece of patterned paper for a background and cut strips from the Arsenic & Lace paper #7. The strips were tucked along the sides of the background paper. The lady (Icon #9) was sized in Photoshop, fussy cut and added to the page, along with a cage skirt die cut in the Harvest Moon paper. I added purple patterned paper under the skirt for a pop of color. The orange flower (Icon #15) was sized, fussy cut and pop dotted to the skirt. I didn't use the witch's hat included with the lady; instead I cut the orange feathers from the hat and added them to her hair. Finally, I sized the moon (Icon #22) and printed it on the Freak Show Harlequin paper. I cut the moon out and added a black bow.

My last project is a "BOO" wall hanging. Here is the supply list and directions:

Gecko Galz - Arsenic & Lace Icon #23, Background paper (Arsenic & Lace #3), Arsenic & Lace #7

My stash - ribbon, orange brads, flower die (Tim Holtz) & punch, Thickers (BOO), October 31st flair, orange papers, black cardstock

Directions: I cut black cardstock to 8" x 8" and adhered the background paper to it. The image was sized to 4.25" x 5.25" and layered to a black panel, orange panel and the Arsenic & Lace paper #7. Black netting from my stash was folded into a bow and the flair added to it. The flowers were cut and layered with an orange brad in the center. These were adhered to the plaque, along with the word "BOO". Finally, black ribbon was added to the back.

Thanks for stopping by today!
