Gecko Galz: Wanderlust



July is here and we have a new customer challenge at the Gecko Galz blog challenge. The theme this month is Wanderlust.

We also have the monthly Image Challenge, the monthly Christmas Image Challenge and the monthly Stamp Challenge on the blog, 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 a piece which I intend to stick in my A5 art journal: 

The background is mica sprays through a stencil with some Vintage Photo script stamping. The image is from the Great Journeys collage sheet. I added two Tim Holtz paper dolls either side and decorated it with paper lace die cuts and flowers.
Here is a closer look at the focal image and it is just one of ten on the collage sheet.

That's all for now!
I hope you'll join our Wanderlust 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!

Please pop over to the Gecko Galz blog to see the fabulous designs by the very talented DT.

We also have a friendly Facebook Group where there are 4 monthly challenges, each with a collage sheet prize. 
Do come and join us!

I'll be back on the 20th July with more Gecko Galz projects.
