My Green Tara DT Reveal
Two Totally Different Layouts
Using One NEW Product

"Timeless Beauty"
 Hi everyone, thanks for calling by.
Today I want to show you my DT reveal for the Green Tara blog.
Turn this fantastic NEW "Wire Cord" from Green Tara into this.
Above is the AFTER.
Below is the BEFORE.
This is my new Favourite product.
 
This is a NEW "Wire Cord" from Green Tara.
I have used the Light Brown here to make my wreath.
It is fantastic & because it has wire in the middle it stays put.
You can bend it & twist it however you like & it just stays there.
It is quite soft too so it doesn't hurt your fingers.
 Jasmine Shea did a similar thing with a single 
strand of wire in a magazine last month,
so I think wreaths must definitely be fashionable at the moment
.

All I did to make this wreath was to wrap it around a bowl to 
get a nice circle. Then I cut shorter  lengths 
& twisted them around an Awl or
 you could use a skewer if you don't have an awl. 
 Next up I just wound & twisted these shorter
curled pieces through the wreath to make it look realistic.


 Next up I wired some Green Tara Roses in two sizes, 
onto the wreath.
Lastly I finished off with a little Gesso here & there.
Hey presto. All finished.
From start to finish, it took me about twenty minutes to 
make this wreath & I think it looks quite realistic.
All the chipboard I have used on these two layouts is from
 2 Crafty Chipboard of course. 
I do love these NEW  little Chippie "Film Strips".
 

Next up on my layout I have used one the 
gorgeous Green Tara laces. 
This lace started life white & I coloured it up to match my layout
with a Tim Holtz Distress Stain. Wow that stuff is good 
& this lace accepted the colour so easily with just one application.
On top of the lace I have used this lovely Pearl Trim which is
also another Green Tara product.


 Lastly I finished of with a flower cluster & the jewel in the crown 
is definitely this beautiful Green Tara "Heirloom" fabric flower in pink.
 
100% Boy
 
Well this time I decided to do a boy layout & I have still used 
the same "Wire Cord" but instead of twisting it like in the previous one
 I have just wrapped it again, around a bowl, & left it smooth.
I think it works equally as well.

 
On my page I have used another great Green Tara Herringbone ribbon.
I think it is very dramatic.
 

I really wanted this page to be a total contrast to the first one.
Although it is the same "Wired Cord" & the design of both pages
is almost the same, using the product in different ways they 
really are completely different.
 

Thanks for calling by today & I hope I have inspired you to have
 a play with this wonderful NEW product.
