Design Team Project

Sugary Sweet – Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

Happy new year!

Wishing you all a prosperous and wonderful 2023! Just like that it’s a brand new year – thank you Dusty Attic for having me on the team again for 2023 – I just love Dusty Attic chipboard, and so honoured to be able to design for this great brand. 

Here is my first project for 2023:

I have used a Stamperia range of papers to create my layout. I first painted all my chipboard with acrylic paint – pinks and white. The flourish (Mystic Flourish DA1747) and the wings of the ladybug (Mini LadyBugs DA3353) in shades of pinks. The hearts (Heart Clusters DA3256), the title (Mini Captions #11 DA1834) and the body of the ladybug were painted with white acrylic paint.

I first matted the photo with papers and then added a half doily to each corner. I added the photo to the page with a foam tape in the middle. This then allowed me to added th flourishes under the photo.

I added the ladybug on top of the flourish – these lady bugs are so cute – there a number in the pack and you can choose closed wings, slightly open wings or fully open wings – I have chosen the fully opened wings for this layout. I added the flower clusters and the fussy cut elements with the flowers.

I have added some rub-on transfers from 49 and Market’s Spectrum Sherbet Strawberry Lemonade 6×8 transfer pack. I then added the hearts and the title “Sugary Sweet” – I thought this appropriate for this gorgeous, sweet photo (credit Pinterest).

I finished off adding some pearls to the layout.
These are the products I have used:
