My Green Tara June DT Reveal
Part Three

Hello & welcome back to part three of my June DT reveal

You may have seen this layout on my blog several months ago,
it was some design team work for 2 Crafty chipboard & I
thought I would show it as part of my June reveal as it has
loads of beautiful Green Tara goodies on it.

Fabric flowers from Green Tara including "Primula" 
 "Sakura"  in ivory.  A 4cm "Heirloom" flower in dusty pink,
 a 2cm ivory "Rose" & a pink "Flower Spray" which I have 
twisted & curled to add a touch of realism. I then finished off my
 cluster with a bow tied with my favourite Green Tara
natural "Jute Ribbon".

All of these beautiful chipboard pieces are from
2 Crafty Chipboard including...
Mini Filmstrips

Well that just about does it for yet another month.
Make sure you pop over & visit the Green Tara blog
& see what all the other DT's have been up to with all the
gorgeous Green Tara products.

 blog on  Bloglovin, there is only two weeks to go until

My Green Tara June DT Reveal
Part Two
"Life's Good"

Hello & welcome back, so glad you stopped by.
This is part two of  my Green Tara DT Reveal for June.

On this layout I have used some of their  great NEW
"Burlap Trim".
I have tied a bow with it & frayed all the edges & popped it in
my layers underneath the flower. I have also added another piece
underneath my photo to create an extra layer.

In this pic you can see on top of the Burlap bow I have used yet
another NEW Green Tara flower. This one is an "Azelea"
& comes in several colours.

I have also tucked in a few "Maple Leaves" in gold.
These leaves are great because they are wired & so you can
 bend them any way you like & they stay put.

A small  "Rose" in light brown, also from Green Tara,
they have so many different sized roses in a huge
variety of colours.

I have added one of their  "Hibiscus" flowers in batik henna.
I thought it completed this autumn colour palette perfectly.

As always  all of my gorgeous chipboard including
Chicken Wire
 are  from 2 Crafty Chipboard.

Stay tuned for tomorrow for part three
& yet another layout.

My Green Tara June DT Reveal
Part One
"Our Sweet Girl"

Hello Green Tara fans & welcome to my blog today.

I have three layouts to share with you, over the next three days,
starting off with this little sweetie. I have been dying to scrap
 these pics which were given to me by a friend.

Can you believe none of my friends are scrapbookers !!!
That is why I always have a never ending supply of
pics, they all just give me their pics to scrap for them !!!

I have used lots of gorgeous Green Tara flowers starting off with
a couple of these sweet little "Hibiscus" flowers in shades of lavender.
I have given them a brush over with some pink & purple "Silks" paints
followed up with a little dab or two of "Irredescent Medium" to
add a little shimmer.

I have also tucked some
Green Tara  "Silver Acrylic Flower Stems"
 in at the side of my cluster.

Next up I have used some of their black & white
"Silk Flowers with Swarovski Crystal Centres".
These are so beautiful & add a touch of opulence
to any flower cluster.

 I then added a a couple of their
purple "Roses" which also received a brush of
"Irredescent Medium" for some added  shimmer.

I then finished off with one of their
"Rain Forest Velvet & Organza Butterfly"
in pink.

All of my chipboard including my
 Title, Hexagons & Tiny Filmstrip
are from 2 Crafty Chipboard.

Well thats all for today, I will be back again tomorrow
to share part two & my next layout with you.
I hope you call by then.

Remember while you are here to follow my
 blog on  Bloglovin, there is only two weeks to go until
 the swap over from Blogger !!!

Until tomorrow.....

your next stop is


My first layout I want to share with you today is called "Dream".
This is one of the fabulous NEW titles from 2 Crafty Chipboard.
I do soooo love this NEW font.

All of my chipboard I have used on this layout were firstly
coated in Gesso, then a coat of ink or paint &  finished off with
a little dab of Stickles to add that little bit of sparkle.
Haven't used Stickles for a couple of years but I'm
starting to get re aquainted with it !!!
Although it is hard to see it in these pics. 

I have also used some little chippie  "Groovy Flowers"
These are great to add in here & there in your clustering,
 kind of like the girl equivalent to cogs.

This beautiful chippie flourish is actually a corner,
 "Helena's Corner" & I chopped it up to create my flourish
& I have also added a heart to my flower cluster
from the 2 Crafty "Funky Hearts" pack.

 I have also used one of the NEW
"Flower Spurt Chain" pieces & coloured in purple, added 
some sparkle & a flower spray over it.
The perfect piece to fill a space.


Lots of background work, this page actually started its life
 as a piece of white cardstock.
With a little imagination, some inks, mists, stamps
& paints you can do anything !!!!

Now for my second layout

On this layout I have used yet another of the NEW release titles
from 2 Crafty, "Family". I think I am obsessed with this font !!!
All of my chippies on this layout were simply given a coat of
gesso, then inked with Distress ink & on the title I simply added
a final coat of Tim Holts Distress Crackle. Too easy.

In this pic you can see I have also used one of their
"Floral Branches", it is just like a cherry blossom. I cut
this in two so I could have a little either side of my pics.

It really is the sweetest piece.

Lastly I have used some of their 
"Chicken Wire Panel" tucked in here & there.

I hope I have inspired you to get hold of some fabulolus 
2 Crafty chipboard for your next project.

Remember to follow me on both this blog as well as my
  & leave a comment here to be in the draw for my prize.
Good luck & thanks for visiting.

Now off to the next blog on the list which is

Happy Hopping!!
