Customer Challenge for February at Gecko Galz!

Welcome Crafty Friends!  It's time for a new Gecko Galz Customer Challenge!  Please join us for the current challenge "Hearts and Kisses", accepting entries from February 1st - February 29th.  There is only one rule.  You need to use at least ONE product from Gecko Galz.  It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital background papers.  The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz shopping spree!

  Don't forget to stop by the Gecko Galz blog to see what the rest of the team created this month.  We hope to inspire you to enter the challenge and win!  Don't forget that throughout the month, the Gecko Galz blog features samples created by the team.  The projects this year are "anything goes",  featuring both our new products and our existing products, so there are a lot of ideas to inspire you.

Below is a sample project that I have created for this month's "Hearts and Kisses" challenge.

This project began with a 5" tin that I picked up from the dollar store a couple of years ago.   I had given it a couple of coats of Gesso at that time, but then set it aside when life got in the way.  I kept seeing it when I'd un-bury a pile of scrappy stuff, and it was just begging to be altered.

I lined the inside with Gecko Galz Vintage Visions paper.  I know I use this paper all the time LOL!  It's just so awesome, very vintage and aged, and complete with the look of old yellowed tape in random areas.  I even made the rosette flower from leftover scraps when I was done.  That entire collection is so versatile,  I love it.! The main image is very vivid and colorful and is also by Gecko Galz.  The rest of the piece was just stuff from my stash, much of which I've had forever and don't know where it came from, but I will list of some of it below.  Thanks for looking!
