Sunset - Green Tara

I decided to try something a little different for me... keeping it simple and leaving some white space!  For me this was not as easy as it looks... but I wanted to really show off these gorgeous Green Tara flowers and thought this was the way to do it!

I sprayed the background with some Smooch Spritz, the Candleglow and Mixed Berries were the perfect match for Green Tara's Lavender Velvet Rose and Ivory Gardenias.

I sprayed the Green Tara lace {this is one of my FAVE laces} with Candleglow Smooch Spritz so it stood out from the white background.  Green Tara lace always holds colour mists so well.

 I love the size of the Velvet Rose, they are simply stunning.

The chipboard was simply sprayed with Black Velvet Smooch Spritz and once dried with Mixed Berries Smooch Spritz... the glimmer pools on the black background leaving a mottled effect.

 I love the 'messy' look of the Gardenia's... it gives them that natural look and offsets the perfection of the roses.

I've popped in some of the new Purple Velvet Leaves, adding leaves to your flower clusters helps them blend well together.

Lastly I added a whole pile of stitching to the border.  It took ages and halfway through I was saying "what was I thinking"... but it looks so effective I know that I'll use this stitch again!!

I hope you find some inspiration from my layout today... it's simple and spacious, but I still got all my favourite elements happening!!
