Bring on school 2012!

Hi there! O.K. only 1 more day to go of holidays~ Phew! I so need some me time and allot of quiet scrapping time. Today I actually managed to create a layout (took all day mind you) amongst the play date my son Tarquinn had and the barrage of 175 'MUM?' interruptions, focus just wasn't there.

This layout features a stunning soft and feminine paper range ~ The Scrapcake. Of course I couldn't resist teaming it with some soft and subtle Prima flowers and embellishments.I rarely journal on my pages ~ I prefer to take a more artistic/canvas approach to all my layouts however they do have a title whether it is placed on the front or back I decide when I create.

What lies beneath?
It's late now but I still have a little time to gather some paper and embellishments together in hope of creating again tomorrow and certainly on 'Back to School' Thursday! Goodnight G!

Class collage

Hi there, Today I'm here to show a sneak peek collage of my 5 layout February class. It's a combination of Prima papers and gorgeous flowers, MME, Kaiser and DCWV.

Sunday February 19th. 9.30-5.00
This is my first attempt of this collage program and I'm not the best when it comes to computers!- sorry 1 frame keeps dropping out and I just can't seem to fix it. All 5 layouts are available to see at the 'Scrappy Hollow'.

Cheers Geraldine!

Hi there! I must say I was 'Over the Moon' when I found that Green Tara was featuring my layout this week. As a new member to the Green Tara team it's a wonderful feeling to know and see that they like what I create. In saying that I hope you like my layout as well!
This is an old photo from 5 years ago that makes me remember when these 2 didn't fight and argue with each other all day!
Green Tara have some wondeful products - including numerous various flowers and roses, extensive ribbon collections, leaves, papers, sprays and stems and many other embellishments perfect for creating both layouts and OTP!
Products used: Green Tara
Silver spray XP0641, Silver Stem XB28558, Gardenia's Ivory FDV054Iv & FDV054Iv5 and Batik Vintage flowers ~FDS026BatV & FDS026BatV4. Some of these flowers have been sprayed with Key lime and graphite glimmer mist.
I have also used Prima Paper and chipboard pieces - Ledger & Printery and have added Twiddleybitz steampunk Cogs coated in Twiddleybitz rusting powder to make the page a little more masculine.
Thanks for dropping into my Blog and come and visit the amazing designs of the talented team at the Green Tara Blog. Enjoy your day!
