The challenge for the Designer Team for Gecko Galz this month is
I made romantic ATCs with a comical twist
I created these ATCs using images from The Summer Romance Collage set, you can find here
I started with a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of sand colored burlap
I then added a cut down version of the Marilyn ATC set papers
Using pop dots, I added the couples, then glued on my snarky love verses from Mischief Circus
For a last touch, I glued on plastic mini wine bottles

This wicked gothic card is my 1st make this year for Halloween
The goth girl is from Kenny K stamps
I love her sassy attitude!
I used a grungy purple cardstock for my background
Layered more cardstock in black and grey that I distressed
A clock face diecut in black burlap
Another diecut on the left side cut out in a gothic scroll print
Black lace at the bottom with a scroll and skull border
I also added a plastic spider web and spider at the top for fun
Little details, like the hand, a spider, and the word wicked
My sassy goth!

Does love only happen with humans? In my fantasy world, mermaids and mermen fall in love too
I created a Sea of Love box using the gorgeous Sea Of Love
digital sheet at Gecko Galz
I started with a paper mache heart shape box.
Did an acrylic pour over the lid using white + turqoise
The swirls of these 2 colors reminded me of the ocean
Around the edges are glistening pieces of mica shell
I chose the beautiful pic of 2 mermaid lovers under the sea
Around the sides of the box I sprayed it using ocean blue spray die, then used aged brass over the corrugated part
I cut images out from various GG ocean sheets + glued them to the sides
The very bottom is texture paste with white sand + real beach glass from Nova Scotia shores

Merry Christmas Owl
I made a birdhouse card shape, in light green pearl cardstock, using a template I found on Google.
I colored the owl image with Prima Premier Markers.
A tiny green bell on his hat
Around the hole for the birdhouse is a ring of red bead garland.
The owl is adhered to the card using 3D foam dots.
Colored in the Merry Christmas Banner, then added some clear crystal glue around the edges. Glued it to the back of the owls head.
Now, he's all ready to put a Christmas verse inside the card, and off to his new owner.

When I think of romance, I think of those lovely Victorian couples, sharing a shy glance + a slight touch of hands.
I created this summer romance piece that will be made into a journal cover.
A cutout shrine was created using chipboard. I covered it in scrapbook paper.
Over the shrine cutout, I made a die cut from an window die in tan paper, then distressed it.
The ocean scene was printed out, + adhered behind the window
The beautiful couple are from Gecko Galz. They have many wonderful Victorian digitals
The couple are 3D using pop dots
Using another die, I added the wisteria. The butterflies are from GG
Paper roses, in pink + cream
On the lower right corner I made a love letter with a metal plume pen
I do hope they fall in love....
