"Cherish" by Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

Hello lovelies! We are heading into summer here in New Zealand. I love it as all the blossoms and flowers start coming up, so beautiful! I have made a layout with Vintage Remnants paper and laser cuts, and some Country Blooms, Wildflower and Stargazers flowers.

I have started with using a stencil and texture paste and adding this randomly to the page, and once dry, added some burgundy ink. Laser cuts from the Vintage Remnants Frame Set No 03 pack have been added with foam tape behind the photo – these are the music piece, the black frames, the tile edging and the clock. I have added the chipboard clock from the Timeless Archival Chipboard. Once these were adhered, I started adding the flowers.

The flowers are a mixture of the Scarlet Country Blooms, Scarlet Wildflowers, and Lemon Drop Stargazer flowers as well as adding leaves from a mixture of laser cut sheets (Bold and Beautiful and Ethereal) and the Serendipitous Layered Embellishments. I have added the script chipboard and the title Cherish from the Treasure Archival Board. I have used the brick wall from the Love Archival Board – removed the solid pieces and then cut and tucked them under the flowers and the clock. I have finished off by adding some watered down burgundy paint around the leaves and end paper layers.
