Green Tara Goodies!!!

I just had my very first DT post over on the Green Tara blog. I was so excited and happy to be chosen for this wonderful team! The products are gorgeous and the design team is so talented. I feel honored to be a part of it! I will be sharing projects from my first post over the next few days.

I'm going to start off with a a layout that I did of Patrick and Taylor. I had been saving the Graphic45 Secret Garden papers for a while. This is one of my favorite collections from any mfg. in quite a while. I didn't want to cut into it. Now I'm ordering more to replace what I used! I saw some gorgeous projects earlier by my super talented friend Gloria Stengel and had to have the paper!!!

There was a patch of purple lilies in a field down the road from our house that I took this photo in, so I wanted to use purple and yellow for the page. These papers were perfect!!! I placed the different clusters of pretty blooms in opposite corners on the page to move the eye along the page.

This shows the beautiful yellow Heirloom silk and organza bloom in the smaller size. Also one of the beautiful purple Azaleas! The smaller blooms are the pretty little Cherry blossoms, they come in all colors, I used  white and lilac. And also a little tiny lavendar rose and tucked a white bloom from a Petal Pack behind the bunch.

I tucked a little piece (one section) of some beautiful  white lace behind the distressed paper.There is also a lilac Gardenia at the top of this cluster that doesn't show in the photo.

Here you see more of the same blooms and I also used a piece of Rafia for a little bow!! This is two toned and so cute to work with! 

I added a little stick pin also from NikNax by Ariana Etsy shiop! I hope you enjoyed seeing this page even a little bit as much as I liked creating it! I will have my other projects posted in the next couple of days so please stop back by!

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!!!

Gorgeous layout and beautiful photo. You took me back to my school days with the mention of raffia, I used to make teapot coasters from it and even a little purse. Thanks for the memories.

Stunning Patti! I love the clusters you have put together, and these G45 papers look like they were made for your photo!
