Amazing Beauty

Hello there Maja fans. Thanks for stopping by. Today I have another layout to share with you & I have again used the fabulous “Vintage Summer Basics” collection. It has to be one of my favourite Maja Design collections because it is so versatile.

For the panel across the middle of my layout I have used the “1905” paper & for my background I have used the “1932” paper & as you can see they compliment each other so well. Because they are fairly neutral too, you can then add pretty much any accessory colour. Here I have added pinks & yellows.

Before I started, I added a light coat of gesso to the papers which makes them a little lighter, but I wanted to then do a little stencilling with some texture paste. When I had finished the stencilling, I then added a little pink in the way of some mists & finished off with some stamping. I always like to add a little mixed media to my layouts.

I have also used some lovely little mini words, heart frame &  chippie foliage all from 2Crafty Chipboard.

Lots of beautiful flowers to finish off with.

Here are the Maja Design “Vintage Summer Basics” papers I have used to create my layout. The one on the left is the “1905” & the one on the right is the “1932”. Fabulous aren’t they.

Well thats all for today. Until next time.

Hi my name is Di Garling. I am married to a very patient man, I have two grown up sons, two grandchildren & a little dog. I owned & operated a Scrapbook shop for eight years here in Australia until I recently sold it & retired. I think retirement is the best kept secret. I love it, it gives me lots of time to enjoy my craft. I still teach scrapbooking & cardmaking once or twice a week, so all in all I am as busy as ever & wouldn't have it any other way.
