Palette #144

Thought I would try this one over at the Color Room its been a while since i did one one there challenges.

Yippe I got a Feature spot with this page

I didn't make this page for this challenge but after visiting a few challenge sites the other day I thought this might be a great fit.

"Sweet Treasure"

I was inspired to create this layout by a couple of our other wonderful Green Tara DT members, I love the result with lots of Green Tara goodies and some very messy hands. 

Memory Maze 12" frame has had texture paste added in some areas and the rest was covered in gesso then hand made paint sprays used in 3 colours.

Lots of Green Tara Lace, Cobweb and ribbon was mod podged and texture pasted into the background, then gesso added to the edges & homemade paint spray to add a little colour back. topped of with roses and buds.

More lace tucked in behind the flowers

Green Tara  ... Lilly, roses & rose buds

Lots more Green Tara flowers, each has had the edges dabbed with gesso

Treasure chipboard word from Memory Maze has been inked then slightly painted with silver ink

Another chipboard piece from Memory Maze treated the same way as the treasure word

Jute Ribbon bow from Green Tara in white with touches of black and blue ink.
