Soft pastel colors by Vicky Varvadouka

"I Love Snow Angels"

Hello Green Tara friends!

In my last post I showed you some ideas on how to use bold and striking colors! 
Now it is time for some soft pastel & romantic projects!!!

This is a layout I made using the sketch from Once upon a sketch challenge blog.
It's my little one making snow angels for the 1st time! 
She LOVED it so much!!!!

I have played with two different stencils, glimmer mist & modeling paste!
 Oh, I did some random stamping too!
The papers are Studio 75 from Poland and the chipboard pieces from Scrapmatts!

Here are some close ups!!!

I have used so many Green Tara products, from flowers to ribbon & lace...

One of my favorite laces to use is the one with the flowers because you can cut them off and use them separately!!! I also love the diamante trim because it allows you to do the same!!

Below you can see a layered cluster with the amazing
 wild rose, primula and pincushion flowers!!!

Bud & bow trim is perfect to make borders and the lace flowers are so romantic!!!

The polka dot ribbon is soooo yummy!!!!

Isn't it a great idea???

 some roses, leaves and an apple blossom.
