"Cherish" by Julianne McKenna

Hello fellow crafters! It's Julianne here today, sharing a new layout filled with D-Lish goodies, and a new technique I've found for colouring white flowers. Actually, it's good for colouring lots of things, including leaves and laces. What is it? Watercolour paints! 


Can you spot all the D-Lish goodies on this layout? Let's start with coloured paper doilies, faceted enamel dots, elegance flowers, cabbage roses, paper roses, leaves, chipboard title, washi tape, resin roses, and a 5x5 stencil
.

I've gone for a vintage feel with the chipboard. I've used old gold on all the chipboard pieces, including the ScrapFX chipboard title

The white resin rose has been painted with Prima metallic water colours. This has created a beautiful golden glimmer to the rose, and ties in with all the gold chipboard.

And I've added strips of the heart washi tape (from the Primrose Lane kit) for something a little quirky.  


The coloured paper doilies make a nice backdrop for the chipboard clocks. And they add a little more colour to the layout instead of the usual white or cream.  

And I've added extra texture to the background by using the 5x5 brick wall stencil. This is probably one of my all time favourite stencils because it is so versatile, and makes such a fantastic background to work with. 


Have you played with the enamel dots yet? Did you know they come in a HUGE variety of colours and styles - including round enamel, glitter enamel, and faceted enamel. So what's your favourite?


The white leaves looked a little too stark on the layout, so a coating of Prima gold watercolour paint has softened the look. 


I usually use mists and sprays to colour my flowers, but now I have a new favourite way of creating co-ordinated coloured flowers - Prima watercolour paints! What makes watercolour paints better for colouring flowers, is that you can create so many different shades and colours. It is much, much easier to match flowers and colours. And the results look fantastic too. Just look at that beautiful elegance flower - it once was white, but is now rosy red to match the cabbage roses
