My Birthday Girl by Shona Keehn

Hi everyone and welcome to Green Tara. My name is Shona and I am here with two new layouts I have created for this post. The first one is called 
Sweet as Candy” 
and all of these photos are 
my grand daughter on her birthday this year.

The new heirloom silk and organza teal flowers are oh so yummy and I have tucked in some roses and hibiscus flowers. I have added touches of gesso to them for a more rustic look as this layout has that look to me with the burlap and natural Dusty Attic chippys.  

 I have also used some of the new Green Tara velvet leaves.
 They just finished off the bloom clusters perfectly. Green Tara also carries
 a huge selection of ribbon and I am in LOVE with this natural jute ribbon. 

 For the main bloom cluster I have added in a flower spray 
and that twine bow is actually Green Tara paper string. 

 My next layout is titled 
Incredible You”. 
I was going for a negative space look to really focus on the
 gorgeous flowers and lace, and of course my gorgeous grand daughter hehe.

 My main focus flowers on this layout are the new Aster Batik Sunset flowers.
 They are just so gorgeous and the colors are amazing. Once again I have used 
the new velvet leaves to finish off the flower clusters. 

 This is the main cluster and you can see the adorable white cherry blossoms 
and the new rain forest velvet and organza butterfly 
tucked into the top of the cluster. 

Green Tara also carries gorgeous lace trims and they are so delicate 
and intricate it is amazing. I have used two strips of the same lace here. 

Well that is it for me today, thank you so much for stopping by.
 I have posted below all the yummy Green Tara products used for all creations.
