Gecko Galz Jan 2022 Challenge Pre-Raphaelite Dreams


Starting the New Year off with some fabulous new Gecko Galz designs.

Jan is all about Pre-Raphaelite Dreams

First off, I have altered a round wood circle, featuring an open window with a woman, perhaps pondering her love life.

Next, I created a triple shrine featuring designs from the same kit.

I love the stained glass window images with the gorgeous ladies!

I gessoed these first, then using antique mod podge, I added vintage doilies, snippets from gold paper I created, red Dresden, tiny words, + more
