Gecko Galz: Walk with Nature 2


Today is mt DT feature day over on the Gecko Galz Blog. I have a few projects to share along the theme of Walk with Nature.

Firstly, I made two notecards. I used Tattered Duchess ATC Set for the background paper. I love this particular paper - it reminds me of worn wallpaper.

The beautiful bird and its nest above is from the new Pretty Birds collage set and the flowers below are from the Ethereal Flowers sheet. I teamed them with kraft card for a natural look and some hessian trim and cream flower lace.

Next is some watercoloring, using Inktense pencils, on a stamp from The Magic of Nature Stamp Set. The stamp reminds me of a lino print and features a pretty woodland scene with plants and creatures:

The paper I used for the background is from the Dapper Nouveau ATC Collection.


Lastly, I had another try at making digital collages. Here are the two that I was happy with. I still need to learn about applying shadows and 'brushes' ... there just never seems enough time to concentrate 

For this first one, which I'm calling 'Mr McGregor's Overgrown Garden', I used a background and png elements from the Storybook Garden Kit.

This is my 'Woodland Wonders' digital collage. 
Here I used the Pixie Spring Kit utilising both the collage sheet for the background and the icons.

I also made some ATcs and then used them as card toppers for my Customer Challenge Inspiration Post which you can see here.

That's all for now!
