Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

My name is Michelle, originally from South Africa and now living on the South Island in New Zealand (since 2010). My hubby and I have been together since 1984, and we will be married for 30 years in 2020. We have a son born in 1993 and a daughter born in 1996.  I have been scrapping for about 18/19 years.  I used to design kits for a local shop in South Africa and taught a few classes before we moved to New Zealand.  I am now currently on a number of design teams, and so excited to be part of the 49 and Market team.

My go-to is flowers (and more flowers), and chipboard. I also love fussy cutting (I always laugh at the patience I have to cut out the most intricate detail, but I have no patience in queues!).  I love adding texture to my layouts with texture pastes and stencils, as well as layering papers and elements. I will also dabble a little in some inks and paints on my layouts.
