Garden Girl Layout (Meg's Garden/ Green Tara/ Helmar)

I had this cute close-up shot of my daughter as a toddler but hated the background so I fussy cut her out and created a garden scene for her to sit in. Oh where to start... I used a mix of papers beautiful floral papers from Meg's Garden (Garden of Blue Flowers and Le Belle Jardin and French Garden collections) and started to pile on chipboard, flowers, trim, a doily, pearl bling (yup basically the kitchen sink, LOL). I think I have nearly 25 Green Tara buds and flowers on this one!

Here is a close-up of my "garden" - purple gardenias, pink cherry blossoms, red rose buds and a beautiful large pink velvet rose.

The background was glued with a Helmar adhesive runner and all of the flowers and chipboard were glued with Helmar 450 quick dry glue - clear and acid free! This stuff is seriously a little miracle in a bottle, LOL. The butterfly is also raised using Helmar's Zapdots.
