My Green Tara Design Team January Reveal
Part Two

Hi there, thanks for calling by.
I did this layout last year but was never completely happy with it, sooooo
I decided to pull it apart and make it over again.
How many of us are guilty of this ???
I have added lots of different Green Tara "Lace" in between the paper layers.
I then sprayed them all turquoise to match my background.

Some Green Tara Pink, white  & blue "Heirloom" flowers
teamed with some of their turquoise "Mini Rosebuds".

Some more of our favourite Green Tara "Roses" in pink & turquoise.

I love the look of all those different Green Tara "Laces"
sprayed in aqua to blend in with my background.
I have tied a bow using some of the new Green Tara
"Double Sided Vertical Satin Stripe Ribbon".

All of the chipboard on this layout is from
2 Crafty chipboard. 

Until next time.

My January 2Crafty DT Reveal
Part Two
"Now & Then"

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have part two of my 
2 Crafty chipboard January DT reveal.
These pics were given to me by a friend & I really wanted to do them justice.

 I have used a pack of 2 Crafty "Puzzle Pieces".
I used both the negative & positive of this jig saw sheet to cover my background with.

 I texturised them with some texture paste then coloured them with Gelatos,
  when dry I have stamped on them.

I have used another of the many 2 Crafty titles "Now & Then".
This title as well as all the other chippies pieces on this layout were
 coloured with Gelatos which work great on chipboard.

Here you can see I have used some of the 2 Crafty feathers from the "Soft Feather Set".
I brushed on some texture paste rather thick to create lines on them like real feathers.

At the side of my photos I have tucked in a 2 Crafty "Birdcage #1"
  which also includes that sweet little bird.

Lastly I have added a heart from the 2 Crafty "Folkhearts Multi Pack".

Until next time.

My January 2 Crafty Chipboard DT Reveal
Part One

Hello & thanks for calling by the blog. Today I have part one of my January DT
reveal for 2 Crafty Chipboard  to show you & naturally it features
 lots of  their gorgeous chipboard.

  I have used one of the many "titles" available
from 2 Crafty. This loopy font is definitely one of my favourites.

In these two photos you can see I have used the 2 Crafty "Leafy Shrub Set #2".

I love these "Leafy Shrub Sets". There are three pieces per pack.
They are so fine & delicate & look so good in any flower cluster.

Some Green Tara flowers of course, some of which I have sprayed
to match my layout. I love the orange one with the yellow centre but
unfortunately it is no longer available.

Lastly I have finished off with the little 2 Crafty "Gazebo" in the bottom corner of my page.

Well thats all for today, 
I'll be back later in the week with part two of my January reveal.

If you would like to know how I have treated any of my chipboard
pieces, it is all listed on the 2 Crafty blog.
Until then.

My Green Tara Design Team January Reveal
Part One
Cherish the Moments

Hi there, thanks for calling by. Today I have part one of my January
design team reveal for Green Tara.
I'll be back in a few days with part two.

Lots of gorgeous Green Tara blooms here. The orange ones were originally
white & I sprayed  them with some mist to get just the right colour that I wanted.

I have also used a whole lot of different Green Tara Washi Tapes too.
They have a huge range of Washi to choose from.

I have also sprayed these Green Tara Roses with some mist too.

In this pic you can see I have made a couple of little knots to go in
with my clusters using some great Green Tara  lime green mesh.
Love this stuff & it comes in so many colours too.
Great way of adding a little extra texture to your project.

All of the chipboard on this layout is naturally from 2 Crafty chipboard.
Hope you like this, until next time.

My January DT Reveal for
Scrap Around the World Challenge Blog

Hi there, thanks for calling by. 
Today I have my DT reveal for the January challenge at 
 Scrap Around the World.
  I love this months moodboard. I have drawn inspiration
from the beach photo with the lighthouse as well as the
white flowers & the strings wound around those glass balls.

I have used lots of fabulous 13Arts mediums as well as
their awesome coloured mists to create my background.
I love the intense colours of the 13Arts mists.

Here you can see where I have added some string in amongst
the white Green Tara flower Sprays.

I have used lots of 2 Crafty chipboard too.
Including this little "Fence"  "Thistle Shrub" & "Moment Title".

Love this 2 Crafty "Lighthouse".

Great background created with 13 Arts gesso, modelling paste & mists.

Hope I have inspired you to join in this months challenge.
Until next time.
