#Angel – Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

Well hello July!

And boy is it really cold here in New Zealand. We were having these balmy winter days and then all of a sudden we had a drop in temperature and winter arrived with a vengeance.

Of course when it’s so cold outside, you don’t need an excuse to stay indoors and scrapbook! 

I took some inspiration off a card I saw on Facebook with die cut numbers in cardstock, and it gave an idea to create this layout  – knowing that I had some Dusty Attic chipboard numbers – DA2389 called “Number Jumble” – and that would work well. I also used some stars from DA2441 and postmarks from DA3150, loosened them from the sheet, and added these all onto double sided tape on my mixed media mat. Using a sponge dauber, I sponged the numbers, the stars and the postmarks with shades of yellow, orange, pink and green paint. Once dried I added clear Wink of Stellar to all the chipboard pieces (accept the title)

I used a Uniquely Creative range of papers – fussy cut the flowers, leaves and squirrel. I used two different papers, tearing the striped paper in half, inking the edges and adhering to the base page, and inking all around. I inked all the fussy cut pieces before adhering around my matted photo.

I layered the fussy cut elements adding the numbers and stars as I layered, and then also added the postmarks 

I then added the title “#angel” from the DA1597 Hashtag sayings – painted with an orange tone and adding stickles to the title. I then covered the photo, splattered white paint over the layout and added coloured pearls to finish.

These are the products I have used DA1597 (Hashtag sayings)DA3150
