Back to Nature – Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

Hi there,

I cannot believe it is February already – January certainly went by in a whizz! I have a nature layout on the blog today using some of the newer chipboard pieces.

These papers are from the Mintay Woodland Creatures collection. All my chipboard pieces were first painted with Dusty in Colour Pesto paint, and then brushed over with green and brown metallique waxes.I first matted the photo with the layers of papers using 49 and Market Ephemera and adding in foam tape between the layers before adhering to the middle of the page. The old wooden fence (DA3081) was added between the layers of the papers. The larger of the Winter Corner chipboard (which is the branches and pine cone) DA3147, is added to the top right corner of the photo before layering the fussy cut flowers and leaves.

I then did the flower cluster in the left corner of the bottom of the photo and cutting the smaller Winter Corner tucking the branch piece up the side and the pine piece under the cluster.

I then finished off adding a cluster in the top left corner of the page and adding the definition “Happiness” from DA2997 on top of it.
These are the products I have used:

Thanks for visiting the blog today.
Take care,Michelle
