a little more Glitter

 As I am on the DesignTeam for Gecko Galz,each month I have a day appointed to me as my sample day.
My date is on the 29th,so be sure to stop by on that day each month for a few step by steps as well as inspiration using Gecko Galz products. Also,on that day,I will have a Free Digi Stamp for you to download and use in your artwork-
a thank you from Gecko Galz!

Today's samples are still under the January theme, All That Glitters
 A new addition for my Goddess Journal 

This piece was made awhile ago while playing with new embossing folders so no photos"(
Painted a piece of cardstock with several coats of various blues
Then ran cardstock through Cuddlebug with  embossing folder.
Layered and wiped back several layers of acrylic paint.
Drybrushed with Quinachrindone Gold
Loosely trimmed around scalloped edges of embossed design
 Generously coated both the page and the back of glitter wrapping paper (found at JoAnn's)
Pressed together,smoothed out and let dry
Next,I attached a piece of tulle like material(used old stash)with sewing machine in the center
Also added a few small areas of tac on the corners,using gold thread
The embossed piece was added on top and was also stitched into place.
 Backed my lady image,from the Golden Splendor collection,with black cardstock and fancy cut before placing her.
Added strands of gold thread and a small scrap of same tulle as well.
Next,layered metal embellishments
then placed my goddess image on top using E6000 glue and weighted this till dry.

Next up are a few digital stamps by Gecko Galz that I printed out,colored with metallic pens and fancy cut.
Thinking maybe to use later in one of my journals. 
 still working on this one~he needs more sparkle!
Just look at the details of these digi stamps! Gorgeous!!!!
this butterfly I doubled backed and fancy cut out~ I think I have a place for this in my Art Barn!
 Okay,couldn't resist getting out the Stickles and adding deliciousness to these!
 My last sample today is a 4x4 piece that was created for my Gecko Galz DT avatar
this angel is also from the Golden Splendor Collection
I think I will add her to a page in my Goddess journal!

and now,here is your Digital Stamp!
Have fun with it!!

My friend, gorgeous, gorgeous. Did you put the tool over her face or is that the image? The bee and the butterfly is stunning. They would be nice hanging from the ceiling!!!!

Lucky February has 29 days this year, otherwise we would have missed you next month! Fabulous projects - all sparkly and glamorous! Those Decko Galz sure keep you busy! The embossed background is stunning as is the image you used. Your avatar image is stunning as well! Beautiful metallic and glittery textures in the coloured bee and butterfly!

Wowzer - love the embossed framing of the gilded image - like a Russian icon - and those digi images look completely amazing - your colouring has really highlighted all that incredible detail. Brilliant inspiration post for the wonderful Gecko Galz!

Stunning productivity and creativity!
I also had the same thinking as Alison, it conjures up images of Icons, especially Russian icons.
Beautiful colouring of the digi images, that bee is fabulous!

Bev said...

Wow, so much to love in this post Jackie. Wonderful use of the tulle on the first piece, that pink really pops. I think the show stopper for me though, is that glorious butterfly!! I mean, holy wowzers, I kept scrolling back up to look at it again and again!! Those colours, oh my, that shimmer, oh boy...LOVE LOVE LOVE!! You rock! hugs :)

Candy C said... are so talented, girlfriend! Your goddess cover is way cool. Love the layers. How do you come up with this stuff? That tulle type layer really is a neat addition and I adore your vintage looking European style lady. She's lovely. Love your colors and the almost like gold guilding. Really sets everything off. And your digi! That bee is beyond beautiful.
