Hello Maja Design fans, Gabrielle here with you today! I’ve had this photo of my two girls hamming it up on a walk we went on, waiting to be scrapped for over a year now, it was time to do it! It’s autumn and I just had to do a little scrapping with the beautiful Walking in the Forest collection!
I just love the lovely denims and flannel print designs in this collection. I chose the following papers to work with for this page: Walking In the Forest (Fresh Air-bs, Flannel shirt-bs, Flannel shirt (front side), Autumn In The Air, Birch).
I used a variety of Dusty Attic chipboard to decorate this page with. I got the idea to use the postage stamp chipboard design from the Walking in the Forest Die-cut sheet of paper. The Dusty Attic Clock Frame got a rusty treatment using Dusty Attic Rusting powder sprayed with a combination of 75% white vinegar and 25% water. You wait about 1/2 hour for the rusting to happen. The l’il mushroom design was cut from the ‘Autumn in the Air’ paper and attached with foam pop dots. The white butterfly is from Prima. The Clock faces were cut from a paper called XVI from the Vintage Autumn Basics.
The blossoms I used for this page are a combination of Prima blooms (large cream flower), some Recollection (Michaels Craft store brand) blossoms, and some Dusty Attic blossoms (small blue).
I layered a few of the Walking In the Forest papers behind the photo, creating a few ribbon banners peeking out of the bottom. I added some foliage stamping in 2 colors around the focal points on the page. The stamp is a K & Company set called Lotus by Amy Butler. The inks I used were Prima Branch Bark chalk ink and Denim Mixed Media chalk ink by ColorBox. The title is by Heidi Swapp. Directly behind the photo I used a little Scattered Straw Distress ink by Tim Holtz.
