"Just You" by Di Garling
Some Tips & Tricks

Hello Green Tara fans. So glad you called by. Today I would like to show you a layout I did a few weeks ago using lots of yummy Green Tara flowers. For the main feature flower in my cluster I have used one of the gorgeous NEW aqua "Damask" fabric flowers. These are so well priced, come in lots of different colours  & are sold loose. I have also used an aqua "gardenia", some "mini rosebuds", some different size "roses", some black Skeleton" leaves  & a gorgeous black "flower spray", all from Green Tara of course.
I do so love this aqua, black & white colour scheme incorporating lots of different types of Green Tara flowers. That is the great thing about Green Tara, because their flowers are all sold loose you can afford to have a bit of this & a bit of that & create a beautiful & interesting cluster. I have also added a few black feathers just to set the whole thing off.
A nice close up shot of the gorgeous "Damask" fabric flower & the fantastic 2 Crafty Chipboard.

At my little shop Di's Scrapbooks at The Entrance NSW Australia we sell loads & loads of all these & more, beautiful Green Tara goodies.

Just a quick tip for making your Green Tara Flower Sprays look even nicer than they already are. Take a three stem pack of flower sprays.
Using an Awl or skewer or whatever else you have on hand & just curl the stems around in rather a random type of fashion. Then do the same to each individual little stem. All of these stems have wire in the middle of them so they can be pushed, poked or twirled around as I have done here & the great thing is that they then, stay put.
Hey presto. There you have it. The before on the left & the finished stem on the right. Doesn't this make a difference? 
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I have given you a little inspiration for your next project.
Until next time.   Cheers Di  xo
