"Dream Big" and "Hello Gorgeous"
By Kelly Foster

Hello everyone!! Kelly here, and this is my very first post here at Green Tara and I am SO excited to be here!!!  I have a couple of layouts to share using loads of beautiful Green Tara goodies. 

Here is the first one, I call "Dream Big." That's my baby girl, Paisley.

I used a lovely combination of rich browns and golds, accented with red and cream.
 So many gorgeous bits...

Here I used the awesome Paper String, stitched to my banner, and embellished
 with some of the precious Mini Rosebuds, I love those things!! 
I weaved them into my 2Crafty chipboard clock, and topped it of
 with a beautiful white 1cm Rose.

Please see full product list below for all of these beautiful blooms.
 I so enjoyed clustering them all together along with those wonderful 
gold Paper Leaves, and more of the Paper String

Up next, this layout  is called "Hello, Gorgeous" and features my other little one, Lilah

I started out creating this background with a thick layer of gesso, 
then layered over that some Lace, ribbon, 
and cobweb mesh for some awesome texture.

Close up of one of the flower clusters..I dipped the edges of the flowers 
and leaves first in gesso, and then in fine gold glitter 
for some extra sparkle! I topped it off with a bow tied from some
of the Natural Jute Ribbon..gorgeous stuff and so versatile.

Ok, and just one more little project...
I made this one for a challenge I am hosting over at Flying Unicorn..
It is a 3 piece wall hanging, using some gorgeous Green Tara flowers and lace,
 LOVE the lace!
