"Vintage Christmas" by Geraldine Pasinati

Hi There! I really do love all things Vintage and shabby,

So anyway, this is officially my first Green Tara blog post and I decided to
show just how perfect Green Tara is with both cards and layouts alike.
Firstly - Christmas! Oh my it's just around the corner and I still haven't scrapped those pile of photos from last year. I bet a lot of you are in the same boat too.

Hello everyone. I thought I would like to show you this Halloween mask I made for my daughter this week. I simply used a black fabric dollar store mask and embellished it with the following Green Tara products. It was a simple 15 minute project that made my 3 year old daughter very happy. Since taking her to Cirque de Solei she's been all over the mask thing. Hope you like it. Thanks for looking. Until next time. Vicky xx

"Beautiful" by Mistra Hoolahan

What better embellishment is there to set off these new "Beautiful Dreamer" Papers from Glitz than Green Tara Roses, Leaves and Silver Sprays!! The flowers were the perfect tones of pinks and white. The new white maple leaves tuck in and soften the look of the chipboard. The Silver Spray added a perfect balance with it's delicate bling! I trimmed the spray so that I used small parts of it to pop in under the flower clusters.

"Wedded Bliss" by Linda Baldock

This year has been really busy for me with moving house and working at shows and retreats from Victoria to WA, but recently I got to relax at a scrap camp and get a bit creative. My project is a 12x12 canvas, I have used loads of Green Tara flowers.
black (CODE: FDV016BL), red (CODE: FDV016R) and white (CODE: FDV016Wh
1.75cm paper flowers as my background. In total I used 117 of the little flowers...well worth it I think. Thanks for looking Linda

"Just Because" by Di Garling

Hello everyone. Today I thought I would show you a page I did recently using lots of lovely Green Tara flowers. On this page I have used the Green Tara Gardenias in pink & white & I have sprayed the white ones with some yellow Glimmermist. That is the great thing about white flowers, you can make them any colour you like. Next I have used a Green Tara Aqua Flower Spray as well as some of their gorgeous roses in both pink & aqua. I have brushed some Glimmer Glaze onto all of the flowers to give them some sparkle as well as applying "Diamond Dust" to the edges of the pink Gardenias. These are all so well priced compared to some of the more expensive brands & I think they look equally as good for a fraction of the cost. Lastly I have finished off my flower clusters with some little green leaves, also from Green Tara. I have also used some very yummy lace which is also one of the many in their huge range. So many to choose from, we are all spoilt for choice. I hope this gives you a few ideas for using our lovely products. Until next time. Cheers Di xx

"Where Thou Art" By Mistra Hoolahan

Hi there... Mistra here with my first Green Tara 'post', how exciting!!

I created this mixed media canvas on the weekend while I waiting on another to dry! There are many so many fun layers on the canvas; Donna Salazar Antiquities PP, Dress Pattern Tissue, 7 Gypsies Tissue, vintage doilies nicked from mum, paint, impasto, many sprays, Dusty Attic chipboard and all topped off always beautiful Green Tara Roses and Lace!

I adore these roses, there's always just the right size available to pop in and add that extra special touch. What better than roses to soften cogs and gears and lace always creates a perfect skirt for a dress form!

I nipped the wire off these and glued them right onto the canvas, tucked in one of the gorgeous Green Tara paper leaves and gave them all a light dry brush of Gesso to blend them all in together. The Green Tara Lace was given a light spray of gold shimmer to 'age' it ever so slightly. They were the perfect finish for the canvas!

I have used:

Lace L2864W
Roses 1cm Ivory FDR001Iv
Roses 2cm Red FDR006R
Roses 2cm White FDR006Wh
Medium Gold Leaf LA3Go

If you want to learn how to create the mixed media background, there is a tutorial you can download on my blog.

Until next time, take care and be true to you.
