First Day of Spring!

Welcome Spring!  Bring us some warm weather and sunshine!

Here are three tags I made with Gecko Galz' March products as my design team samples.


The tag bases are from my Gecko Galz teammie, Heather Hudson who has her own digital images on My Artistic Adventures Etsy.
I had used 3 of these tags for my 3 French Hens post a few days ago.  Since I printed all 6 tags, I used the other 3 for my Gecko Galz project.

I fussy cut images from three different Gecko Galz collage sheets, all released this month:
Retro Girls:  girl with goose
Hip Hop Easter:  bunny with umbrella
Touch of Easter:  children with chicks

For something a little different, instead of grass or ribbon trim, I grounded the images with torn paper.  I've used this technique eons ago and was reminded of it when I saw a recent internet post. Do you ever have paper scraps left over?  Sometimes I make a printing booboo lining up my images on the computer screen and waste images because they end up being overlapped on the paper.  Other times I need a part of an image and have the rest left over.  Those leftovers are exactly what I used on these tags.  You may recognize them as bits from other designs I've used recently---BINGO cards, Christmas trees, and baby clothes--all from My Artistic Adventures.

Here are a couple of ways to enter a chance for prizes at Gecko Galz:

These are sooooo sweet!!! I love the vintage vibe of these tags and those torn strips of paper for "grounding." These tags would be adorable tied up on some Easter baskets!
