Gecko Galz blog Hop with a FREE image

Hello Everyone!

I want to welcome everyone to the sixth destination of
Gecko Galz 5th Annual Blog Hop!

If you started here you might want to go back and start at the beginning at the Gecko Galz blog so you won’t miss anything!  

We have 14 AMAZING blogs for you to visit this weekend, each with some gorgeous projects created using the Gecko Galz exclusive blog hop collage sheets, that we are giving you for FREE! Each blog you visit will have another free Gecko Galz Collage sheet for you to grab, the one here is
"FLY FREE".


Also make sure you collect all the “secret” words on each blog so at the end of the hop you can send in the phrase to enter our drawing for a wonderful treat.  
So sit back, relax, take your time and enjoy the hop!

My samples using this collage sheet:


First up is a mixed media canvas.  I used all of the images plus some other goodies from my stash to make it.  Love all of these images!!!




Next, a few Christmas ornaments.  This is one of my favorite Sizzix dies from ages ago.  Each ornament was cut from chipboard then painted with a sparkly acrylic paint.  I added the images between acrylic pieces and added them to the ornaments.  Large bows and a bit of glitter complete them.


A mini journal.  After playing with Altoid tins at the Gecko Galz retreat, I had some ideas rolling around.  I decided to make this mini journal using one of the tins and love how it turned out.  The tin was alcohol inked with greens and blues to match the images.  I also used some Tim Holtz rub-ons and some other Gecko Galz papers and tags.


The inside is an accordion book.




And of course I had to make a tag (for my tag wall).  I chose to use scraps from my work table to make this little cutie.  Rolled flowers.  Lattice background.  And of course those beautiful butterflies!




You may remember this from a few weeks ago.  I brought it back because it uses the same images.  This is by far one of my favorite tags ever!  Many Gecko Galz images were used for this tag.





We have FOUR amazing prizes up for grabs:
·        First is a Gecko Galz shopping spree for $100!
·        Second prize is a $50 Shopping spree with Gecko Galz.
