Mixed Media January with Jelissa

Hello crafty friends, thank you for calling by the blog today.
 How has your 2014 been so far?
I have three mixed media projects to share with you, featuring
 some awesome Green Tara products.

"Dreams Canvas"

I borrowed a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt and what better to accompany a
 beautiful quote than some pretty Green Tara flowers?

Here are the amazing Heirlooms, cherry and apple blossoms,
 and of course my favourite mini-roses.

This is another cluster with the Tutu organza flowers,
and apple and cherry blossoms.

I topped off the mini-rose with a satin bow in dusky pink.

Green Tara products used:

  Tutu 5cm Organza and Pearl Flowers Ivory 
 Heirloom 4cm Silk and Organza  Green
 Heirloom 6.5cm Silk and Organza Flowers White 
 Red Apple Blossoms
White Apple Blossoms
Aubergine/White Apple Blossoms
Cherry Blossoms Cream
Cherry Blossoms Red/White
1 cm Roses Ivory
1.5cm Roses Orange

The second layout I have to share with you is part of my DT work for
 Once Upon a Sketch's January challenge. The theme is "Lesson Learnt"
 and what I've learned for 2013 is learning to let go.

"Letting Go"

I love how well the colors of the velvet rose matched the color palette I have chosen.

Some close ups:

What I did was to tear the velvet rose apart and use only the top two layers.
 For the cherry blossoms, I misted the edges and I also chalked the
 edges of the mini roses.

I did a bow with the polka dot organza ribbon and layered an
apple blossom and a mini-rose over it.

Green Tara products used:

38mm Polka Dot Organza Roll Pale Pink
Aubergine/White Apple Blossoms
Cherry Blossoms Cream
1 cm Roses Ivory
1 cm Roses Pale Pink

Now I've saved the best for last!


I've put together a start-to-finish mixed media tutorial just for you!
 It's my first of such a video and I'm so glad to be doing it with Green Tara.
 But before that, some close-ups:

What a gorgeous floral clusters the wild rose and cherry and apple blossoms make! 

Green Tara products used:
