Shiny Petals

Very soon we shall share with you all the lovely new ribbons that have just arrived (and those that are on the way), but in the meantime, enjoy this lovely layout.

We love to see how our products are used, so if you would like to share your creativity with us, just send photos and description to info@greentara.com.au

A Work In Progress

 Peta has "blinged up" these petals by embossing them:
" I like the colour of these petals but wanted them a bit darker, so wiped versamark ink over them and embossed them with clear embossing powder that had sparkle in it. That gave them a lovely gloss and a slightly darker colour which set off the pink pearl stamens. I combined them with the large green leaves to tone down all the pink and cream and folder over the 10cm petal to make a bloom and added the silk and Swarovski crystal flowers and the satin rosette to make a nice little cluster."

It has certainly been a while since we have posted on our blog but we have been incredibly busy with new product.

They certainly showcased our lovely products with flair and creativity.

We will be sharing our new products with you over the next few weeks and would love to see how you, our customers and followers use our flowers, ribbons and embellishments. If you would like to share your creations on our blog, please send photos and description to us at info@greentara.com.au


Joy

Peta has shared this sweet layout with us:
"I wanted to add texture to the page without distracting from the photo, so neutral colours are perfect. Usually I would have gone for brown tones, but I didn't want them to disappear into the new lovely wide burlap so used the silver grey petals with black and cream stamens. I'm loving the stamens, I can create lovely flowers with all the petals that I've bought over the years. I added a few pops of colour with the Washi tape, Damask flower and Tutu flower."

May inspiration with Pascale

Hello Sweeties, 

It's my turn to share with you some layouts I made with Green Tara beauties.

"La Tour de la Lanterne"


The Tour de la Lanterne (XVe),situated at La Rochelle, 
is the last medieval lighthouse of the Atlantic Coast.


I wanted to color the flowers with the same orange
than the moss we can see on the front of the photo. 
So I choose a yellow Heirloom
 and I used diluted Silk paint in Ginger Peach and Harvest Sol to color it.


I colored the flower spray and the Calla Lillies with Twinkling H2O.

And I used the same Silk paints to color the Diamante flower.


Green Tara Products used :
Heirloom 6,5 cm - Yellow
Flower spray - Gold
Calla Lillies - Cerise
Silk Diamante Flowers - White

" Le Jardin bleu d'Absolem "


"Le Jardin bleu d'Absolem" - The blue garden of Absolem - 
is one of the ephemeral garden of Chaumont-sur-Loire Castle. 
Do you know who Absolem is ? 
Well he is the caterpillar in "Alice in Wonderland" ...


I made three clusters of flowers. It helps to focus the attention on the photo. 
In the clusters around the photo, I used a Blue Wild Rose
the color is a perfect match with the butterflies one. 


The white/aubergine Apple Blossom 
and the lavender Roses match the color of the carpets.


Green Tara products used:
Wild Rose - Blue
Apple Blossom - Aubergine/White
Roses 2cm - Lavender

*****************************

" Red Berries " 


The colors of the photo are really contrast, so I went on the same idea to realize my layout:
bright green, red and black.


The Olive Xmas Vine were perfect to add the same kind of brightness to the embellishments. 
I cut the branch in small pieces in order to slip them under the flowers. 
The small green berries reminded the berries of the photo. 


I added a piece of Bud n Bow ribbon under the Black Lace Pearl and the Red Heirloom.
I like the fact that the Heirloom came in two sizes.


Green Tara Products used:
Heirloom 6,5 cm - Red 
Heirloom 4 cm - Red 
Lace Pearl - Black 
XMas Vine 19 cm - Olive 
Ribbon Bud n Bow 16 mm - Olive

Saying Goodbye from Jelissa

Hello Green Tara fans!

I'm so sorry to tell you that this will be my last post for GT. It has been a wonderful term with a fabulously talented team of girls, not to mention the gorgeous products that I get to share with you every month.

Without further ado, my first project is an altered Ikea photo frame.

"PERCEPTION"



I used the Gold and Olive meshes in the background and the Herringbone ribbon
to set off the black frame.


For the floral cluster, I have a lovely Velvet rose, Calla Lily, small Heirloom and Flower Sprays.


I topped the chipboard with one of my favourites, the Mini Rose. 

Green Tara products used:


My second share is a layout of my youngest son.

"SUNSHINE"


I created this layout with the bright happy colours of Green Tara flowers in mind. 


I used the Heirloom and Lace Pearl flowers. In case you don't know, Heirloom fabric flowers come in two different sizes that allow you to create a varied and interesting cluster.


In this corner, I matched another Heirloom with some mini roses.

Green Tara products used: 

My last share is a set of ATCs I made for some crafty friends I'm meeting
in Perth over this weekend.


Each ATC features a different Green Tara fabric flower which I have always like to use as the centrepiece of my floral clusters.


This piece features a Lace Pearl bloom, which has a very soft, sweet look.


Here is the Velvet Rose, which adds a touch of sophistication to any cluster.


And lastly, the Heirloom which certainly is an attention-grabber.

And that is all I have for everyone. I hope to see all of you again soon, and please continue to show your support for Green Tara.

hugs,
Jelissa

Ulrika May projects and a Good Bye!

This will be my last post as a Designer for Green Tara. My term is over and I have really enjoyed working with all this amazing supplies! As usual I have many pictures and a whole bunch of things to show you! We start with this layout I created for OUAS April Challenge.

My baby boy 2008. Time flies!
I added some Bronze Liquid Acrylic Ink on the small Roses. I also tuck in a ribbon in the wooden border.

I pulled away the large Rhinestones from the flowers I put behind the photos. Then I used them as embellishments together with the other flowers.

I think this color scheme was really fun to work with!

Green tara products used:
Heirloom Latte 6,5 cm code: XF9213LAT
Wild Rose Brown 7 cm code:FX9318BR
Wild Rose Apricot 7 cm code:FX9318AP
Roses Orange 1,5cm code: FDR003O
Vertical Stripe Satin Latte 18mm code: RB454LA

Next up is a very cute and light card. I have put one large Heirloom flower as center piece.

Behind the flower I used two different ribbons for my bow.

Heirloom Pale Pink 6,5 cm code: XF9213PP
Mesh Ribbon Rose 38 mm code: 6734RORB

One cute baby card in a salmon color. Not everything for babies need to be pink or light blue.

I wanted only a bow on this card to embed the stroller.

Herringbone Ribbon Peachy Pink Code:RB405PP

 And now to my very last project. I wanted to make a very manly gift box. No fuss but still a flower and a bow. I chose black and green to get that male feeling.

 I did a double bow and used the black cool ribbon that almost looks like a spider net.
