Splashes Of Colour by Kim Price

I just love to create layouts that speak for themselves. I've used a favourite snapshot of my father and I taken just before we entered the church on my wedding day. It was such an exciting moment and filled with happiness, so I chose to use bright and happy colours to reflect this. I just adore these vivid orange and yellow Chrysanthemums and I have used these as the inspiration for this layout. So simple and yet they add such impact.

Aren't they just amazing!

Green Tara Products Used:

Chrysanthemums - FLT170

And in a more classic style I have created this little jewellery gift box
 to hold a little something special. 
I had so much fun creating the cluster on the top
 of the box for this project and I really love the combination of
 deep, rich purples with mint green, creams and white. 
It really makes a statement for something so small. 

In this view you can see the row of white lace I have gesso'd into place as well as the addition of a single tiny purple flower placed at the opposite end for balance. 

This last detailed photo gives a better look at the cluster as well as the ribbon, cord and velvet leaf elements.

For my final project I am sharing a layout I created on kraft cardstock and featuring a variety of Green Tara flowers along with ribbon and laces. This was one of my favourite layouts I created in 2012 so I wanted to share this on the Green Tara blog as well. I just adore the beautiful colours of the Green Tara products against the kraft background - a stunning effect.
