Welcome Back
To Our July Guest Designer
Heather Jacob

Hello everyone. Thanks for calling by. Today we have our 
"Guest Designer" for July, Heather Jacob,
 back with us. We all adore Heather's work & it is always a special treat to have her here.
All of us here at Green Tara would like to thank Heather for her amazing work she has shared with us here this month. We will definitely have to do it again Heather.
Thanks again.
The Green Tara Team   xoxo

Hello everyone, Heather here again to show you what I have been doing with some Green Tara goodies.
One of my very fave colour combos is RED/WHITE/BLACK
I love to layer the papers behind the photo to draw the eye towards the focal point and create mystery, sometimes only small sections of paper are seen, ( less is more ),  but without that tiny piece the entire page can loose that important colour or design … just by adding tiny pieces of colour eg stamps /paper /fabric/ can be just what the page is needing.
Try experimenting with this idea and you will be surprised to  see how different the layout looks by adding or removing tiny pieces.  Always move elements around the page until you are happy.  Sometimes by adding a coloured brad, fills a tiny corner or edge to complete the page perfectly.

I have created two clusters of flowers here on opposing corners … combining the red/black/white together.

The flowers are poked under the layers adding dimension and interest .

I have altered the large black Heirloom silk & organza flower  by separating the petals and just leaving myself with a smaller flower and the remaining sections of the flower will be used on another project, at a later time. Thanks for popping by. Hope to see you again soon.
Hugs Heather
