Gecko Galz Beauty

There I was, awake in the middle of the night, thinking...

Bet you've been there.

I should really take notes when I come up with ideas in the dark.

I fell in love with this beauty from the, "Sparkle and Shine" collage set. by Gecko Galz. I thought about a hanging on a line, after being processed. 

Wallpaper, ripped on an old wall...I used the Autumn Colors Mini Paper Pack

and the Time Flies ATC set.  

The card base and, "wall"  were inked with Distress Oxide Ink in Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, and Spiced Marmalade by Ranger (Tim Holtz). I used Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo (very fitting, don't you think?) to ink all the torn edges of the, "wall paper", and a little on the photo.

A bit of wire and two tiny clothes pins from my stash display the photo. 

I decided to add some Glossy Accents (Ranger) to her eyes and lips. I think she looks eerie!

This large flower was lying around on my table, left over petals from another project.

You see, I repurpose lots of stuff...can hardly walk in my art studio. I created the flower from beer cans, usingTim Holtz Tattered Florals Bigz die. It was embossed and inked with alcohol inks by Ranger. A little alcohol sprayed on the surface gives a lovely mottled finish.

The entire card was finally sprayed with Shimmer Spritz, by Imagine Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to come back to see more Gecko Galz creations.

Stay creative,
