Mermaids Galore!

It's mermaid month at Gecko Galz!
And I used the new Pretty Mermaid Collage Sheets
For the first one, I cropped the image and
used a photo mask on it, then
placed it over top of a paper from the 
Easter Parade Paper Pak.
Then I used the same photo mask and placed that over
a paper from the Foral Symphony Paper Pak.
Same mask again, and over a paper from the
La Isla Paper Pak.
I applied a bevel style and
placed that layer over top of the same paper from the
La Isla Paper Pak.
Another bevel.
And we're done!

For this one, I cropped the image and 
used the same photo mask as I did
with the last sample.
Placed that over a paper from the
Ombre Paper Pak.
Photo mask again, then over top of
a paper from the
In Marble Halls Paper Pak.
Added the wordart from the
Gecko Galz In Other Words
collage sheet, to which I
applied a color burn blend mode.
I finished it with an overlay edge by 
 Berna Datema and
some glitter stars.

This last one was no more complicated than the last two.
Cropped the image
Used an photo mask
Over a paper from the
La Isla Paper Pak.
Added a border overlay by
Captivated Visions.

All these are simply one photo mask
(by Syndee Nuckles), the glorious
Pretty Mermaids collage sheet set and
a whole bunch of different
Gecko Galz papers.
Just layering over layering!

All you need to do is check out all the goodies at

and if you don't do digital art,
keep in mind you can use any of these awesome
papers and images for real-live paper 
scrapbooking  and card-making!

You know what that means!
You're right!
A new customer challenge at

Isn't this a great theme?
I think so.
And there are many amazing
collage sheets, jewels, digital stamps, and papers that
match this theme perfectly at
There is a new collage sheet called
I made something with it to get you started:

I also used the
paper pak, which I just love!!
You are going to play along, right?
The only criteria is that you use at least
one Gecko Galz piece in your project.
But I think you'll have trouble using just one.

And make sure you link it up at

We look forward to seeing your

Gecko Galz Under The Big Top

It's circus time at Gecko Galz!
Yesirree, boys and girls, 
it's time for that magic only a circus can bring to you!
How about I show you up close and personal
what's happening at our circus?

These are so easy with any Digital Editing software
I use Photoshop elements 13
All I did with each was:

1. crop the main figure
I wanted to use from the collage sheet,
2. place it over the paper of my choice,
3. erase the parts of the image that I did not want
4. Add the wordart over top
5. Add a border overlay that you like
6. embellish it with any (free) brushes
I liked in colors to match
the main image.
Easy Peasy!
