Following are some samples using this collage sheet and other Gecko Galz products:

First up is an altered mini clipboard.  After painting the clipboard with white gesso, I covered it with Gecko Galz paper in a music note pattern.  I matted the image, printed out a quote and put it all together with a few other simple details.  The bingo card is also Gecko Galz.  Products links below:
Vintage Visions mini paper pack
Bingo Cards digital collage sheet

Next up I altered a cigar box.  I began by painting the box with gesso and white paint.  Along the sides I applied torn Tim Holtz tissue paper in random areas with matte Mod Podge.  I also did some random stamping and distress ink staining.  The top of the box is covered with Gecko Galz papers, and also some music sheet paper from my stash, both applied with matte Mod Podge.  I placed doilies and a Gecko Galz bingo card under my image, then added some white glittered roses by recollections.

My October samples for Gecko Galz

Hi Crafty Friends!  Below are the samples I created for Gecko Galz this month.  I absolutely love these images, and have linked the collage sheet below.  The cards were created with just some simple matting, and I added some leaves I created with a sizzix die, and with random scraps of Gecko Galz papers from my stash.  I love how the card turned out.  Please visit the Gecko Galz blog and pick up your free digital stamp HERE.
