I loved using the images from this collage sheet and created the following projects. The colors are beautifully vintage and have so many possibilities.
The first project I created was this simple tag. I dyed the tag with Luminarte's Twinkling H20s in rose gold and then used white rub ons with the alphabet from Basic Grey and added a flower for interest.
The next project I created was a bit more elaborate. I scanned one of the images and printed it out onto canvas paper. I wanted some texture to the image. That is what I love about Gecko Galz' products. You can print the images and the papers onto any medium you wish which provides far more options. I used an old time card that I further distressed, a journal page by Bo Bunny , a clock die cut from 7Gypsies, a rub on of the A+ etc. by Basic Grey and added a tiny pencil with the teacher image.
My final project is a gift for my daughter who is a first grade teacher. At her school the staff is required to wear a plastic clip on ID on a lanyard. I created this long necklace with the old fashioned pen points and the perfect "school days" images as a new lanyard for her badge. Hope she likes it.
Hope you enjoy the blog hop and have fun. Your next stop is Helen Huber
