I want to give a special thank you to Rachelle for being such a great support to me, you are amazing!
And also a big thank you to all my dt members who have been so lovely all through the year and to everyone who leave me such gorgeous comments!
One more thank you to Imaginarium Designs, Pion Design and Green Tara for trusting me with their amazing products this year, it has been really amazing! Thank to everyone for believing in me!

COLOURFUL CREATIONS FOR GREEN TARA!

Hello!

Time to share my second post for Green Tara! So loving this! To view the original post please go here.

The first layout I created is a Xmas layout in monochromatic red and white, one of my all time favourite Xmas colour combo! I started my layout with my usual texture paste/stencil/glimmer splatters, then the paper layering and flower cluster!

"Peace"



I used some gorgeous "6.5cm red Heirloom flowers" with  "white gardenia":


Here are cute red and white "Cherry Blossoms", "rose" and "flower spray":

I layered red and white "Herringbone ribbon" and red "Leaf Garland":


I also wrapped red "flower spray" around my chipboard:

And my final touch was some "white/red polka dot washi tape", I just tore some small bits and adhered here and there around my layout for a little extra detail, I also added some "white mesh" and "flower spray" to decorate the tear:

- 4 CHRISTMAS BALLS IDT0007
My second project is another layout but in a totally different colour theme, I just wanted to experiment with different colours and have a bit of fun! Green Tara products come in such a vast array of colours that is just impossible not to have fun!

"Pigeon Pair"


Here is a closie of the flower cluster:

In the bottom paper tear I added some torn bits of "brown mesh" and a "gold mesh" bow:

I also added extra texture with some gorgeous "vertical stripe satin ribbon":

I covered my tiny oval frame with white crackle paint and my small reindeer and star with German Glass Glitter in gold, I left my title "Noel" raw and added some gorgeous Green Tara Gold Mesh:

 I covered large tree and title with white crackle paint, I painted my holly flourish with white gel pen added some distress stickles to the leaves and gold glitter to berries and shapes on tree:


Here is the last one, using more Green Tara Gold Mesh and rose:
