December Creations by Rachael

“Have yourself a merry little Christmas frame”

Well it’s Christmas Eve here in Australia.. & I thought I’d get into the spirit of things & create all things Christmas......
Now! I LOVE creating layouts... Layouts are my thing OH! a Card here & there too.. BUT! the other Green Tara Designers are creating such AMAZING OTP projects that it has got me to spread my wings so to speak & try OTP Project SO!
First up is the photo frame...  I have dabbed lots of gesso around the frame! Then stamped, inked, sprayed,added  some micro beads to give  a mixed media feel to it!! Finishing it off by adding lots of GORGEOUS Green Tara goodness....

The wire stars are one of my FAVES from Green Tara Products... BUT! then again I have lots of  Green Tara FAVES...   LOL! these beauties come a few colours....
I’ve left these  plain! Don’t they look FANTASTIC.....

& the EVER so lovely NEW  Xmas Vines , along with the Mini roses,
 Fushia Calla lillie & the fushia  stars on Wire....

My cluster of flowers consist of 1.5cm lime green mini roses, 3cm Pink Cherry blossom, 8cm Damask in Aqua, 4cm White Apple Blossom, 5cm Sakura in Purple & a 5cm Satin Rosette in the palest lavender which I have sprayed fushia pink...Also with some self adhesive gold trim....

& I’ve framed some of the inside with a Green Tara Lace!

" Oh Christmas Tree"

This is my take on Paper Stories December Sketch Challenge,
 be sure to stop on by & check it O.U.T & maybe if you have
 any time play along...down the right side I have used the 
 Herringbone ribbons in black & Turquoise....

Another GORGEOUS lace & some more Star on a Wire,
  this time in gold....

I've cut up some of the black Herringbone ribbon to create a couple of arrow/chevron strips...
here in this little cluster I have a 3cm Purple Velvet leave & a couple of the newer flowers - 3cm white pearl lace & a 6cm Wild Rose in a pale Blue!!!!
