New! Gecko Galz Challenge for August!

Hi Crafty Friends!  I just love our August theme, since I love anything related to the sand, sun, and surf.  Summer was always my favorite season growing up on the East coast, and later moving to the West coast.  I literally lived on one shore or the other until 2007 when I moved 70 miles inland to an almost desert climate.  Summer has since become my least favorite season.  This month I can relive those days in the sun through all the fun and beachy Gecko Galz images!  Please join us for our newest challenge "Taking it Nautical"!  Below you will find my sample for our August challenge on the Gecko Galz blog.  Please visit the blog to see what the rest of the team has created.  We hope we can inspire you to enter for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz etsy store.  Thanks for looking!

I created a 6 x 6 collage.  I began by printing out a beach background that was part of the Sea Side Splendor kit which I use over and over, the images are so awesome!  The ship was part of a collage sheet set that I fussy cut and applied to the background with dimensional tape.  The swimming lady was also part of a collage sheet set, and is also up on pop dots.  I added some texture paste and glitter around the edge of her body to cover the cut edges.  I also fussy cut the rock from another image, and added the little crab from my stash just for fun.  Thanks for looking!
