Gecko Galz challenge theme is "wanderlust",
I used translator to see, what that means and one of
the meaning was "longing for far away".
I think this mermaid has wanderlust.

"Extra" ATC's

I have this little box I keep all the "extras" I get
from swapping ATC etc. Now the little box was getting
over loaded so I decided it was time to "dig in", LOL.

First, I made a big base (A3 size),
gluing bits and pieces.
Add some white gesso and paint.
Then cut it to ATC size and added 
the "main pieces" , sentiments,
doodling and little ink on the edges.

And the funny thing is, that the little box STILL
looks very full.

I'd like to enter to these challenges:
Aud Sentiment - AG + sentiment

Altered book; Christmas mermaid

When I saw this months Christmas challenge
image at Gecko Galz I knew it would make
a perfect page for my altered book, since
it's all about under water life.

Here's the cover of the book.

And this is how the new page looks like.

Image, lots of die cuts, sticker words and white paint.
I also used some pink, blue and clear sparkling pen
but the photo does not show it.

I'd like to enter to these challenges:
Double D challenges - creatures under/in the sea
Aud Sentiment - AG with sentiment
Creative Knockouts - die cuts or punches
Penny's - AG


The Male Room ; Monochrome

The new challenge theme is a bit challenging,
but in the other hand easy and anyway very fun to create.

I printed this cute image from Delicious Doodle on vellum,
colored it little with Copics and designed the simple layout.

Steampunk Travel

Gecko Galz Steampunk challenge image is
full of machines for traveling (maybe time traveling?).

Since the image has a clock on it, I thought it would
make a nice masculine Birthday card.

ATC; treasure memories

Great new images to play with in Gecko Galz
challenges, I started with a Gothic challenge

Some scrap papers, ink, wax, peal off stickers and 
word stickers.
