A very good morning to you, Maja Fans! 🙂 It’s Maja here to share a somewhat philosophical layout 😉

Alas, my dear friends, tempus fugit… Christmas was only like yesterday, and here we are, a day after Easter, waiting for summer holidays. It seems to me the older I get, the faster time flies! But there is something we can do about that – just seize the moment and cherish your memories 🙂 And so I decided to create this page about time:

mdtempusI thought of a “clocky” design, using various clock faces as elements of my composition. First I prepared the background: I trimmed the No. XIX paper from the Autumn Vintage Basics collestion, distressed the edges and layered it over the 13th of December sheet from the Vintage Frost Basics collection (I love how those stripes correspond with one another!). Then, using a Prima mask and white gesso, I added some “brickwall” textured pattern:

mdtempus1I adopted the printed page title for my title as well, adding pearls and the year 2014 in Roman numerals:
