Gecko Galz final project for December

 This image from one of the collage collections from Gecko Galz is one of my all time favorites.  I dyed the tag using Luminarte's Radiant Rain (from Creative Imaginations) and painted the dress with Luminarte's Twinkling H20( also available at Creative Imaginations).  What I love about these two wonderful products is the control one has over the color density and the amazing results that can be obtained.
 I added the self adhesive pearls and outlined the card using the Viva Colour Glitter Pen.  While I still like my Stickles, for better control I far prefer these Glitter Pens that are also available at Creative Imaginations and at Posh Scraps in Palm Harbor Fl. 
I did a couple of no sew fabric gift bags for Gecko Galz and will put those up when I can get up to Posh Scraps and take the pictures of them.   These will be my last GG projects for six months.  I have taken a sabbatical as we will be undertaking more time with our Grand children to help their daddy continue his pursuit of his degree.  There will be other changes I will be announcing in the days to come but one thing you can be sure of...I will be playing with paper, paint and glue and recharging my creative batteries! 

Wishing you all the very best of the holidays and of the days to come.  Happy New Year to you and yours and keep on creating!

The last of the gifts for Book Club

I put the finishing touches on these just this morning.  To see how to do these lovely little charms that can be used on gift tags, on wine bottles, as necklaces or pins check out my Creative Imaginations Blog Post from last week HERE.  There is also a detailed list of products at the end of the article. 
Hope the Book Club ladies like these.

To see these up closer, just click on the photos

And yes, Jacque Lynch, I saved the angel one you liked just for you!  Hope your holidays are merry and bright.
