Now go to the next site and collect the next word plus your next FREE collage sheet.

Here is the Blog Hop Rotation














Please enjoy this free Gecko Galz Collage sheet “Le Jardin”


As well as the samples I have made using the images



Backgrounds are from the collage sheet & I added images from another Gecko Galz "Edwardian Ladies" Sheet available from the store. Some scrabble words, textured paper & charms added as embellishments.


I love to decorate candles - I printed the flowers onto tissue paper and wrapped them around the candle using greaseproof paper & then heated it all over with my heat gun to "melt" the tissue paper onto the candle. I added braid to finish it off.


A great way to use scraps of card & paper is to make Scrpalings or as I have done little Scrapling cards with a couple of little images from the Le Jardin Ephemera Sheet and patterned paper also from Gecko Galz.



My final creation uses the gorgeous peacock image which I used to make a fairly simple card with the peacock as the main focus along with embossed and coloured paper.
