Hello everyone, Di Garling back with you again. Today I have three
NEW layouts to share with you, starting off with this one that features
my NEW Grandaughter, Mia. In this pic she was just one day old & I
think she is just soooooo sweet. Love her to bits.
Naturally I have used lots of gorgeous Green Tara products, including
one of their many "laces" which I tucked in along the bottom of the page.
Starting off with two different colors of "Herringbone Ribbon" in aqua & peach.
I simply placed a few strips of this ribbon in behind my photo along with yet another
of the many Green Tara "Laces", they have so many to choose from.
The chipboard I have used here is from 2 Crafty chipboard.
I have also sprayed one of the Green Tara "Azelea" flowers & some of
their "Roses" to get just the right shade to match the peach herringbone ribbon.
I have also added some turquoise "Mini Rosebuds" & "Roses".
Here you can see another cluster featuring more "Roses" which again
I have sprayed with Mist to get just the right shade.
For my second layout I have again gone with soft pastels
which are a perfect compliment to these beautiful white
Green Tara blooms. I have based my layout on a sketch,
which I rotated, from Skissedella.
Firstly to frame my pics I have used some Green Tara "Wire Cord" in white
to create a circular frame to draw focus to my photo. This cord is great,
because it has wire in it you can bend it anyway & it stays put.
Here you can see the fabulous white "Wild Rose" with the jewel centre
teamed with a couple of "3cm Silk Flowers with a Swarovski Crystal Centres"
& a tiny bunch of "Mini Rosebuds" & finished off with some green "Velvet Leaves".
Next up I have tucked in a couple of pieces of "Silver Crystal/Pearl Stems"
to add a touch of opulence. Whenever I use these sprays I always break them
into a few pieces & just tuck a little in here & there.
Layered underneath for photo (if you look close) you will see some pieces
of "Silver Mesh" ribbon. This is just glorious, so fine & delicate & always
adds a touch of glamour. It makes the most wonderful bows too.
to create little tendrils, instead of just cutting them off.
Adds a realistic look, don't you think?
This layout I created is of my youngest son & his new wife.
They are such a beautiful couple.
I did an online tutorial over at Pop & Colours #2 with the super talented Georgia Heald
& I have created this layout using the techniques that she taught.
Lots of background treatments, mists, paints & stamping.
Basically all of my favourite things.
Here you can see I have used a few different Green Tara "Washi Tapes".
They have a huge range of Washi to choose from.
In this pic you can see the black "Apple Blossom", black "Mini Rosebuds",
a small black "Rose" & this beautiful teale "Gardenia" is actually white &
I have simply misted it to achieve the perfect colour to match my layout.
and some more......
I love this quote & I think it sums them up perfectly.
Well thats all from me, until next month.
