Goddess loveliness with Gecko Galz

 Geesh if you were born on this day,well,lucky you not having to age for another 4 years!! heehee

Today I have two more Goddess pieces for my journal...
the first is in progress...I am still working out just what sort of background she would look best on,so stay tuned!
 Here,I layered several coats of DecoArt crackle glaze to give a look of a frosted window.Not quite sure that I succeeded with the frosted look,but I do love the result anyway!
 The gorgeous background paper is from Gecko Galz as well as the beautiful women graphics.These colors~simply stunning!
Believe it or not,this was printed using my Epson ink jet printer!
Next up is my previous shown angel avatar, now adorned on her own page,ready for journal placement.
I used lots of stencils,modeling paste,embossing powders and handmade paper.
yummy textures...
 do you love texture as much as I do?!
One more item to share...
This is a blog stamp from Gecko Galz that I painted using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics,used as watercolors.Once again,this is not finished and will show up in another post when I have created the perfect setting for it! heehee ")
 and now for your promised monthly blog stamp,courtesy of Gecko Galz!!

Gorgeous, gorgeous journal pages. I love how you use those images. I need a lesson!!! Oh frosted glass....watered down white fluid acrylics then add the crackle glaze. Or I've waited for the crackle to dry and used watered down fluid acrylics on top. Try it out on something first to see if you like it. oxoxoxox

Jackie...these are awesome pieces. Love the goddess page. Love all of the texture and vivid color. Love the background papers and the DecoArt Crackle Glaze. Your second piece is really pretty as well. Yes, I love layers! You've done a beautiful job of combining color, texture and images! Love all of the texture you've gotten with the modeling paste!

Divine! The frosted glass is absolutely perfection and was made to be paired with such an image. It really is breathtaking.
A most beautiful blog post brimming over with inspirational art.
