Hello there Maja fans. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Today I have a layout to share with you & it features my baby grandson, Henry. I don’t do that many boy layouts so when I saw these gorgeous papers from the “Life By the Sea” collection, I thought how perfect they were for a boy layout.
For my background I have used “The Westcoast” paper. Love these gorgeous nautical stripes. I have put a strip of the “Landmark” paper behind the top & bottom. Because it is a plainer paper, I think it makes a nice contrast.
The little kite I have made at the side of the photo was out of some of the scraps I had left over of both the “Landmark” & some “Sailing” papers.
Next up I decided to make a little pinwheel. I used the “Drop the Anchor” paper for this. I like the way you can see both side of the paper on this.
I also used up some of the decorator strips which are on the bottom of every Maja paper, & ran them vertically down my page to add a graphic element to the design.
Next up I decided to make a little circular pleated embellishment using the “Landmark” paper too. I just love the way this collection mixes & matches so perfectly.
Some string for texture, some ink splatters, a little stamping, a few layers & some 2Crafty chipboard.
Hey presto, all done. I know we all like to do pretty creations using pretty papers & lots of flowers, but occassionally we have to do some boy things & what better range to do it with, than this “Life By The Sea” collection.
These are the four Maja Design papers I have used….
Until next time.
