Green Tara

Yesterday was my turn to share at Green Tara.

Here are my three projects....

On this super crisp morning, I want to share a few projects with you.
First of all is  
I adore this photo of Jessica
 (even have it as a canvas on our wall at home)
The color in the photo suited these flowers really well 
and it all came together beautifully.
and misted them using Luminarte Pigment Powders and then 
stamped over the flower in Archival Black ink with a script stamp 
to add something a little different.
The Satin Rosette was trimmed down a little to suit as was the 
Tutu Flower - just trimmed a little off the edges with my scissors.
Finally I added in my fave little 1cm Roses in the
 clusters to add a little lift.

This next page is a little arty as well but I wanted to use lots
 of lace & ribbon to keep it feeling soft. 
"You are My Everything"
I had to make a couple of slight colour alterations with this 
page which was super easy.

I used some Heidi Swapp Colour Shine in Amethyst - 
as I used in the layout to change the colour of the lace
 and also the roses - perfect match!

The ribbons and laces were great for this page and I used tape 
and the sewing machine to adhere them to the layout.
I also used some Apple Blossoms, 1cm & 1.5cm Roses and the
 gorgeous vine which I also coloured to match.

For my next page, I was completely influenced by the paper and went
 through my flower stash pulling out everything that matched!
 I was blown away by how many amazing BRIGHT colours 
Green Tara really have and then narrowed it down to just a couple 
of highlight flowers that made the paper POP!
 The Heirloom Flowers in Yellow in the 6.5cm and 4cm size
 look great along with some Hot Pink 2cm roses.

And finally is a set of three cards I taught here in Adelaide at
 Seriously Scrapbooking last weekend.
These cards are all part of my monthly Big Shot Class and the
 Green Tara Roses get used in just about every class I teach!

With this last card, I used the White Azalea but didn't feel the yellow Stamen
 suited so I removed it, soaked it in Distress Ink, dried it off and popped
 it back in! Perfect Match!

Head over to Green Tara and leave me some love and check out the rest of the incredible Design Team plus there are three great cards I made too featuring Green Tara!


  1. Stunning, absolutely stunning layouts and I love the way you'e used the flowers and the trim looks amazing. Great ways to colour your embellishments, TFS.

  2. Great how different, bright & bold the last one is...the middle is my fave, but I'm a H swapp 'tragic'...especially the Color Shine...YUMMMMM.....adore how you've used those trims with the stitching:):):)

  3. These are amazing layouts! All the back grounds are so detailed, I love the boldness of the black square pattern in the last one with those gorgeously bright colored flowers!!


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment! xxx
