A Beautiful Green Tara Share

"Beautiful Sweet Love"

This is one of my DD's many years ago with her favorite baby doll, this poor doll got so loved it lost all it's limbs several times and eventually was un-repairable, we managed to replace it with another doll exactly the same that we found at a garage sale and still to this day even at almost 11yrs old she still can't sleep without her baby doll.

 A beautiful cluster of Green Tara flowers, I started with a blue flower vine and twisted it around a small bottle so it became a circle then I stuck a beautiful Sakura flower in lime and surrounded it with heirloom, cherry blossoms, apple blossoms & rose flowers.

This time I've used a larger Heirloom flower and surrounded it with apple blossoms, cherry blossoms & a rose, I've also popped a small piece of a silver spray in to the flowers. A small yellow embossed butterfly also from Green Tara and a couple of ribbons cut to look like a banner.

Cute little metal heart embellishments left in their raw state.

Beautiful chipboard word from Memory Maze painted black and coated in glass glitter.

Cute chipboard banner tags also from memory Maze painted and inked to match.

The Color Room #154 GDT

My first official post as a member of the Color Room GDT

My take on #154

"Memories Together"

This photo was taken so long ago, Mister Glen is now 19 and Shyanne is 12, it was a rare random photo that I just love.

I wanted to keep the colours separate on this layout so I used the photo as my guide and made the top half all blue and the bottom brown, even adding some sand filled texture paste .

The extra's this palette were circles, I used a Kaiser stamp to create the dark circles and a mask to create some smaller texture paste circles through out the page.

Another extra was add white, so I have lightly painted everything in white gesso.

Lastly use a frame & a marine theme, Frame from Memory Maze chipboard.

Products Used

Bella & Prima papers
Memory Maze frame and words
Green Tara flowers & ribbon
Lindys stamp gang sprays
Crafters workshop template
Finishing touches swirls
Texture paste with sand & gesso
Distress ink  pads

FWAB Share

I created this layout last month and can finally share the entire thing here with you.

'Tiny Sailor'

This is my youngest DD back in 2012 having fun at Jambaroo.

Here I have used pieces of a Grace Pearl Flourish in Chocolate, I don't think I have ever used a FWAB as one piece, I like to cut them up and make new pieces or use smaller pieces here and there on my layouts like I have done here.

Here I have tucked another 2 pieces of the above flourish under the flower cluster and it still left me with 5 pearls to use another time.

Here I have used a small piece of a Jasmine Puffy Flourish in black, saving the rest of the flourish for another day.

Products used

FWAB - Jasmine & Grace flourishes

Bo Bunny, Scrapcake & Kaiser papers
Hessien and cheese cloth
Mixd media inks
Lindy's Stamp Gang spray

FWAB Challenge

My very first layout for FWAB design team was for a challenge, we were require to follow a sketch made by Amy Prior.

"Sweet & Sour"

 This title fits miss Ellalese to a T, she has hundreds of faces and can be the sweetest giggly girl or a screaming yelling crazy kid lol.

Lots of blink cut up to create a new piece.
