Gecko Galz July Challege Projects

I have FINALLY printed out the monthly images so generously sent to all Gecko Galz subscribers this month.  I finally purchased an amazing printer and happily set about creating this lot of projects for the different July challenges.  I used my typewriter for some custom sentiments, sentiment stamps from the amazing Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps (affiliate link; thank you!), various dies from my collection (including Graphic 45), and sentiment stickers/ephemera from Idea-ology.  I hope you enjoy this mash up of projects.  I thoroughly enjoyed creating them.

I LOVE this steampunk image.  So so much.  I love steampunk designs but never know how to create them.  It doesn't come as naturally, but I loved how this one came together and felt me.

Another ocean themed project with this beautiful seahorse.  I used a scrap of Fairy Hugs printed paper to create this slimline mini card/bookmark.  I stenciled the fish with black texture paste and layered the tag, ticket, and typewritten sentiments about our beautiful digital clipart.  I love using complementary colors.

I stained several pages of printer paper with espresso grounds.  I cut one down for the background, very lightly stenciling this damask design.  The sentiment is from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.

I added some tulle in soft pink behind the image and sentiments, using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to hold everything together.  I liked the simplicity of the design, so I chose not to embellish further.  The sentiment is from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.

Since this bombshell image was smaller, and I wasn't creating an ATC, I thought a 3"x4" journaling card would be perfect.  I layered a piece of Mirri gold paper from Piece Craft Love (save 10% with code: FROLICKINGFAIRY10) beneath the image, and layered a snarky sentiment sticker from Idea-ology.

My Gothic Challenge entry makes me giggle.  I used black embossing paste through a stencil over the top of my black notecard before adhering the lady in mourning.  The moment I saw this sentiment, I knew it was perfect.  The sentiment is from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.

My final project for July features the Christmas image this month.  I layered die cuts from i-Crafter (affiliate link) behind the photo, a typewritten sentiment and a pleated paper element at the bottom.

Thank you to those that read to the bottom.  Again, I hope you had fun seeing such a vast array of projects using these beautiful freebie images from Gecko Galz.  xx
