Green Tara DT work

Time for another Green Tara DT share

When I saw this paper range from Bo Bunny called Isabella I knew if would be a great fit for me, I mean I have so many girls how could it not be.

"Bubble Fun"

I wanted to make a simple page that brings the focus to the photo and the flowers.

I have cut a flower vine/spray in half and used a piece on either side of my page, twisting it around a small paint brush to give it more life. Here we have a pink apply blossom, new satin rosette in ivory, a pincushion & Black silk flower.

This side of the flower cluster has a ivory camellia as the main flower, a black small heirloom, pink cherry blossom, cream apple blossom and a new azalea in pink, I've also added some skeleton leaves and wire cord that has also been wrapped around a paint brush to make little swirls. I added small dabs of glossy accents to the flowers and sprinkled diamond dust over them.

Some Mesh ribbon has been cut to look like a banner, & my first Charms Creations embellishment.

Memory Maze chipboard frame, was first painted in gesso then sprayed with home made paint sprays in cream, grey & pink then coated in ranger crackle paint.

I little white rose has been made grey with home made paint spray. Memory Maze chipboard banner also treated the same as the frame but instead of the crackle I have drawn stitched on lines.

Cute But Dangerous Green Tara DT

"Cute But Dangerous"

This photo was taken while in a crowd of people at a Christmas carols show, little miss was spinning around as I caught the photo & the look on her face sums up this little cutie who keeps me on my toes every min of every day.

New Burlap ribbon has been used in a number of places and any pieces that have fallen off from cutting have also been added to the page. Memory Maze title painted with distress stain then touches of gesso and crackle paint applied. Small cluster of flowers included a Sakura and Heirloom flower with a small rose.

Memory Maze Vine, this was part of a larger piece and has been painted in blue distress stain then had the tips done in  black and a little gesso to the edges.

Memory Maze butterfly used for the wings has been painted with gesso then touches of blue distress in and some black right on the edge, I've then added some micro beads.

A cute little cluster of flowers including a blue primula, pink lace with pearl and a cherry blossom, each has been slightly painted with gesso. More burlap ribbon tucked in at the top and some loose strands.
