Heather Jacob

Hello everyone. Thanks for calling by the blog. Today I am so very pleased to WELCOME our 
"Guest Designer" for July, Heather Jacob.
We are so very fortunate to have Heather aboard this month to show us some pretties she has created with our very favourite "Green Tara" goodies. Heather will also be back later in the month to share some more inspiration with you, so make sure you check back in later.
Cheers Di  xo

Hi there, my name is HEATHER JACOB.
Firstly I am so honoured to be here as a guest designer on the fabulous GREEN TARA … Thanks so much Di for asking me .. I was totally thrilled and surprised to receive such a generous, beautiful big box full of goodies for me to play with, pure delight.

Now a little about me, I am blissfully married to my wonderful, supportive “soul mate” BADEN. Our treasured family, all feature throughout my work. There is nothing more important to me than my family. Creating art is one of my many passions in life .. I discovered scrapbooking in 2003 and to me this craft is the perfect combination of art, photography, beautiful paper, and glorious words. I can incorporate all the arts and crafts I love in one hobby. I especially love that there are NO RULES !!
My books are a reflection of my life, my history, my family and friends. Also who I was yesterday and who I am today. My addictions at the moment are definitely Stitching, layering, stamping, texture paste and paint, and monochromatic themes. Off the page projects and altered art are a fave of mine. Tags, cards and mini books .. My style is “CLASSIC” with attention to detail…and a little shabby chic thrown in..
I teach classes at “Seriously Scrapbooking” in Adelaide and I am lucky enough to be on a few design teams : Imaginarium Designs (chipboard), CSI, The Color Room, Meg’s garden, Scrap for Help, ASI magazine.

"Cousins" Layout by Heather Jacob

I like to use flowers in clusters .. sometimes just poking out from under some layered papers.
Here I have used a small cluster of 2 flowers and a bling element on the left side of the photo.

I've  repeated a larger cluster of black and ivory Roses mixed with white Cherry Blossoms
 and a Flower Spray.

 Another small cluster is mixed with other elements on the bottom right side of the page .
I adore these new Lillies and found them delightful to work with.

Green Tara Products Used
“NEW “ Callie Lillies Ivory with pale lemon stamen
