Hello Maja fans!

I have a new layout to share with you today. I made a mixed media vintage page using two different collections… ”Vintage Summer Basics” and ”Vintage Autumn Basics”.

I have also made a Video Tutorial…

As I always do I found this beautiful and romantic photo on Pinterest. So I want to give to the photographer all the proper credits.

Close Up 1

This photo is so romantic and inspired me to make a soft romantic layout.

For my background I choose the ”1916” paper from ”Vintage Summer Basics” collection and behind my photo I placed some torn pieces from ”1915” and ”1932” papers to make some layers.

At first, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some white gesso where I wanted to place my photo. I added some texture to my background with a light paste and two stencils. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Delphinium Turquoise” and ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” with some water to make a watercolor effect on my background.

I sprayed my flowers with ”Blazing Sun” Lindy’s Glitz Spritz to make them shine. Then, I made a fussy cutting on some clocks from Vintage Autumn Basics ”No XVI” paper and added them to my clusters.

All the chipboards I used are 2Crafty. I colored the two flourish pieces with ”Deep Waters” Finnabair acrylic paint and the ”Forever” title was heat embossed with ”Golden Angel Wings” Lindy’s embossing powder.

Well, that’s all for today…

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope I gave you a little bit of inspiration!

See you again in two weeks!
