• Gecko Galz: Love Songs Journal Page



Let me welcome Beverly Jordon, my new follower. Thank you Beverly for showing interest in my blog.

It's February, the month of Love, and at Gecko Galz our new customer challenge is 
We also have the monthly Image Challenge and the monthly Christmas Image Challenge, as well as 4 Facebook challenges. 
We hope you can find some time to join in the fun.

The winner of the Customer challenge 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.

I made an A5 journal page:

I am pretty new to making journal pages with collage elements. Here I made a mixed media background with Pixie Powders. I stencilled over this with Gesso and a Heart stencil, then added stamping mainly around the edges. Lots of gold and white paint splatters were added, the stencilled hearts were outlined with gold pen and i also added a hand drawn border. I matted the images from Retro Love Stories onto white card and adhered them along with some white, swirly heart die cuts. The sentiments are from a fabulous stamp set called Music Makers Sentiments.

That's all for now!
I hope you'll join our Silly Love Songs 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 (this can be one of the freebies or, of course, you can buy at the Etsy store!) Also if you sign up for the Gecko Galz newsletter, you'll be able to claim a free collage sheet each month and get first claim on the monthly $1 deals!
