Happy Fourth of July!

I hope everyone (who celebrates) has a wonderful Fourth of July weekend. Here in Central Texas we're under a burn ban, so most local fireworks displays have been cancelled, so we'll celebrate with food and family!

Here's a card I made to commemorate the occasion. I used various patterned papers from Gecko Galz Liberty Papers collection. I also used a digital stamp from the Gecko Galz July Beautiful Background Stamps images. I printed the stamp image on vellum and then deco podged that over a patterned paper. I then added in a quote from the Gecko Galz July Patriotic Sentiments, mixed in some ribbon, stickles and a hand made mini banner.

Hope you enjoy your independence!!!

Happy Creating!

Happy Father's Day Project

I created this 8" x 10" wall hanging as a Father's Day gift. I used Gecko Galz Strawberry Fields papers and My Heart Belongs to Daddy Ephemera. I used a graphic drawing of Charles Lindberg's Spirit of St. Louis printed on Gacko Galz papers. I then paper pieced the plane for a three dimensional effect. Fun!



Hope you enjoy...and Happy Creating!

Spring!

Spring is my favorite time of year. And, here in Texas it can be quite fleeting too. To celebrate my favorite time of year, and to try and make it last longer, I created this shadowbox using Gecko Galz Tudor Rose papers, and Fairies Ephemera. I mixed in some acrylic paint, stickles, glitter, and liquid pearls for good measure.


Hope your Spring is wonderful! Happy Creating!
