The challenge runs from the 1st to the 29th September.
The winner will get a $25 Gecko Galz Etsy Store voucher and the runner up a $12 voucher. There are plenty of free Gecko Galz images if you don't already own any. Each blog post has a free image to collect and, if you sign up for the monthly newsletter, there is the chance to claim a free collage set each month. Also if you make any purchase of $2 or more you receive a free image.
Here is my project:
I altered the cover of a hard backed notebook.
The beautiful ballerina image is from the At The Ballet collage set and I teamed it with paper from the Land of the Fey ATC set. I added gesso, then grit paste through a stencil onto the book cover and when it was dry I lightly brushed gold wax over it. It gives a lovely worn, yet opulent look.
I added the topper next and added more gold in the form of acrylic paint along some of the torn edges of the background. A piece of cheesecloth and some die cut and coloured flowers and leaves were arranged in two opposite corners. The ends of the leaves were left loose to add some dimension and movement.
I finished the cover by splattering white and gold paint all over. I love the shabby chic look this gives.
I hope you'll join our Ballerina Girl challenge where the winner will get a $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz shop.The only rule is that you must use at least one Gecko Galz product
