Grouping Colour with Susan Longman

Very excited to be joining you for my very first post on the Green Tara team…
to be quite honest the goodies I received where so amazing I had no idea where
to start so I colour grouped them to give me some perspective on the gorgeous items
 I had to work with. I love working with a white base and adding a colour as the focus…
so here are my layouts I have created this month.

For this layout I have focused on some of the gorgeous purples available in the
 Green Tara range… I have added a touch of mauve to the edges of the
 white gardenias to tie it all in.

The fabulous Polka Dot Organza Ribbon is tied in a large bow to add interest to
 the page and tie the main focus in with the mini cluster up top.

I absolutely fell in love with the amazing *NEW* Double Sided Vertical Stripe Satin ribbon
 and just had to include the turquoise on my layout.

 The Green Tara Mini Roses are my go to flower when creating clusters on a page …
 little flowers mixed in amongst larger ones makes the embellishing look more at ease
 on the page …. try layering your flowers under your papers too.

Gold is so “ON TREND” right now that when I saw the luscious gold goodies
 in my parcel I just had to give a gold layout a go…

 I have used the white cherry blossoms and tip painted them in gold to tie in with
 the other gorgeous gold toned blooms.
