Very exciting news! Michelle will be launching her brand new collection tomorrow at 6pm on Hochanda. I have had the privilege of designing with her last 2 collections, so I was thrilled to receive the new Jungle Dreams Collection.
The inspiration for the new collection came from Henri Rousseau. He is best known for his painting depicting dreamy and colourful jungle scenes. Michelle, in her own style, has captured the mood and feel of his work with stunning jungle embellishments, fantasy flowers, majestic animals as well as the most beautiful and exotic birds.
This immense collection is by no means limited to a jungle theme. In fact as with her previous collections, she has included a huge variety of images, embellishments, both photo real and drawn. This truly is a versatile collection which will suit all crafting styles and projects.
The background papers and materials are stunning. They range from rich and vibrant colours to monotone, encompassing many in between. Once again Michelle has created something for every taste. Many of them have wonderful texture that isn’t lost when printing.
Without any shadow of a doubt, I would recommend this collection to any crafter. I can honestly say that I have only used a small fraction of what’s on offer. Even now I browse the content, only to find even more elements that I have missed. I couldn’t begin to imagine all of the projects, cards and scrapbook pages that you could create with the collection.
Having seen the samples from the other members of the design team, I know the shows are going to be filled with inspiration. I do hope you will tune in tomorrow at 6pm and 8pm, then again on Thursday at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.


I have created this scrapbook page, to give you a taste of just some of the elements from this collection.
Thank you for joining me today for the preview of Jungle Dreams by Michelle. I would love to have your thoughts and comments, if you have time, I always love to have your feedback. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
