* Gecko Galz: Garden Wildlife Twinchies


I'm back again today to share two twincies (2 x 2 inch squares) I made using Gecko Galz products.
I love working on tiny projects! Here's what I made:


First the lady bugs. They come from a digital collage sheet called How Does My Garden Grow. I printed, then fussy cut the image, as best I could, then I inked around the cut edges with Vintage Photo. I added Glossy Accents to the lady bugs wings and used a beige marker to add a little colour to the card that couldn't be trimmed, hoping it would blend into the background lace a little more.  The background is paper from the La Boheme Digital Kit. My image did not stand out as much as I wanted it to, so I added some lacy trim to the background. The ladybugs were popped on tiny foam pads for dimension and I added some extra colour to the leaves with Copic markers. I typed and printed the sentiment, cut it into strips, edged it in Vintage Photo and adhered it to the twinchie. I finished with a hand-drawn wonky border.

The bumble bee twinchie was quick and easy to make. The image is from the Bits and Pieces collage sheet and the background paper is a cropped ATC from the Now and Zen ATC collage sheet. I fussy cut the bee, inked the edges and shaped it's wings. I added Stickles to the wings and Glossy Accents to the body. The edges of the background paper were inked with Vintage Photo. A strip of jewel trim was adhered across the centre and the bee was popped on top. I typed, and printed the sentiment, cut it into strips and inked the edges then glued it onto the background adding some glitter. Again I finished off with a wonky, hand-drawn border.

I don't know why, but I'm always amazed at how small Twinchies look compared to Trinchies. The extra square inch really does make a huge difference:
