Goddess of the Garden

Hello Everyone
This is my second Gecko Galz DT project using March products, soon I will share the first of my projects using April products.
When I printed Garden Girls image sheet I couldn’t resist making another project, the images are so appealing.
Gecko Galz Garden Girls
Oxford Impressions The Fairest Flower
My Stash- low gloss printer paper, paint, tissue paper, re-cycled corrugated cardboard, fabric, lace, metal leaf and resin flower (from jewellery)
DIGITAL CAMERASoft, muted tones with hints of colour from the fabric scraps layered with crochet style trim and more painted corrugated card.
When I spied a bracelet reduced to only 50p I knew I could break it up to use the resin style flowers so you might well see them cropping up on other projects. DIGITAL CAMERAPainted tissue paper which was stamped with a beautiful text stamp from Oxford Impressions’ The Fairest Flower.DIGITAL CAMERAThe torn off piece wasn’t wasted as I used it beneath the Garden Girl image. DIGITAL CAMERAA shabby bow is the finishing detail on this collage.

    So soft and feminine and more lovely fabric behind the sweet image!
    Love how you reuse torn off bits – I love to do the same to keep the theme going!
    Exciting to find a piece that can be used for creating several different collages.
    Hugs dear friend,

    So pretty!! I just love the fabric prints you’re using. And the rose did work perfectly. You photographed it so beautifully with the roses, laces, and such.

    Imaginative as always Lynne. Who would have thought part of a 50p bracelet would have added such perfect detail to this piece.

    p.s. answering your question on my tag, I stamped the image onto a piece of card, I have yet to find a fabric that works for me. Any hints on what you use would be appreciated.
