This month my Designer Challenge for Gecko Galz, was
SECRET GARDENThis theme makes me think of a wonderful flower garden, with fairies, toadstools, a fairy frog, and lots of butterflies!
I created this Fairy Secret Garden Shrine using
Magical cutouts, moss, a wooden shrine, see thru vellum and a tealight
The back drop of the shrine is a design I printed in vellum from one of the fantasy digital ATC sheets
I edged the shrine with real twigs
You really need to check out the GG Storybook Garden Craft Kit. Its MAGICAL!!
I also used my own stash of paper flowers + clear backed butterflies
A brick stencil + texture paste created the crumbling brick wall bits on the sides of the shrine
The 2nd project I made is a Journal Cover
I decorated the cover using images from the Storybook Garden Craft Kit, + the Dream Garden ATC Set
Lots of layers + 3d mount tape to create height + illusion
I then added some paper flowers, ribbon, and wrought iron gate die cut
