Turn this fantastic NEW "Wire Cord" from Green Tara into this.
Above is the AFTER.
Below is the BEFORE.
This is my new Favourite product.
This NEW "Wire Cord" from Green Tara comes in six colours
& the best part about it, it is really well priced.
I have used the Light Brown here to make my wreath.
It is fantastic & because it has wire in the middle it stays put.
You can bend it & twist it however you like & it just stays there.
It is quite soft too so it doesn't hurt your fingers.
Jasmine Shea did a similar thing with a single
strand of wire in a magazine last month,
so I think wreaths must definitely be fashionable at the moment.
All I did to make this wreath was to wrap it around a bowl to
get a nice circle. Then I cut shorter lengths
& twisted them around an Awl or
you could use a skewer if you don't have an awl.
Next up I just wound & twisted these shorter
curled pieces through the wreath to make it look realistic.
Next up I wired some Green Tara Roses in two sizes,
onto the wreath.
Lastly I finished off with a little Gesso here & there.
Hey presto. All finished.
From start to finish, it took me about twenty minutes to
make this wreath & I think it looks quite realistic.
All the chipboard I have used on these two layouts is from
2 Crafty Chipboard of course.
Next up on my layout I have used one the
gorgeous Green Tara laces.
They have so many to choose from we are spoilt for choice.
This one started life white & I coloured it up to match my layout
with a Tim Holtz Distress Stain. Wow that stuff is good
& this lace accepted the colour so easily with just one application.
On top of the lace I have used this lovely Pearl Trim which is
also another Green Tara product.
People think Green Tara only sell flowers, but they have
hundreds & hundreds of beautiful laces, ribbons & trims.
Lastly I finished of with a flower cluster & the jewel in the crown
is definitely this beautiful "Heirloom" fabric flower in pink.
Well this time I decided to do a boy layout & I have still used
the same "Wire Cord" but instead of twisting it like in the previous one
I have just wrapped it again, around a bowl, & left it smooth.
I think it works equally as well.
I really think this product has great potential. It would be great
for making your own embellishments with.
On my page I have used another great Green Tara ribbon.
This one is called "Herringbone" ribbon & comes in
six fabulous colours.
I think it is very dramatic.
I really wanted this page to be a total contrast to the first one.
Although it is the same "Wired Cord" & the design of both pages
is almost the same, using the product in different ways they
really are completely different.
Thanks for calling by today & I hope I have inspired you to have
a play with this wonderful NEW product.
