Two Layouts by JJ Sobey

 "When I started to make a layout with these yummy "Authentique" papers, I knew right away which flowers I wanted to use.  The colours are perfect with these new Green Tara

I can't get enough of these White Velvet Leaves - so feminine!  They come wired, so I curled the ends for a little added 'greenery', ahem...   You can also see some of the Pleated Organza and
 Loop Trim in this close-up.

This Organza Butterfly on Wire trim is a nice touch of whimsy.  I like that it's lightly wired - makes it easy to make it sit exactly the way you want."

Green Tara Products Used

Flowers - Sakura coral (XF9221Cor), Sakura lime (XF9221Li),
               Sakura lilac (XF9221L)
Leaves -   Velvet Leaves white (XL266WhP)
Ribbon -   25mm Pleated Organza ivory (RB316Iv)
Trims -    7mm loop trim olive (RBDAOl), 25mm Organza Butterfly on Wire - off white (RB6764OW)



 "I headed straight for my Green Tara flowers and trims to embellish the page - and found these beauties (Damask 8cm Fabric and Organza Flower Aqua, Heirloom 6.5cm Silk and Organza Flowers Dusky Pink, and Grey Blue):

You can also see a couple of the white Velvet Leaves, and the cream Spray nestled in with the larger flowers.

I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry on all the flowers, trims and embellishments.  It has the strength to hold without needing gobs of glue that will show on things like this white Lattice ribbon.  I tucked a few of the white petals around the paper layers as well.

Have you seen the '"Organza Butterfly on Wire" trims yet?  They are fun and playful, and some of the colours would totally work on 'boy' pages, too!"
Leaves - Velvet Leaves 3cm White (XL266Wh)
Ribbon - 25mm Lattice White (RB6735Wh)
