Welcome friends!

Today is the day of the year where especially the children have a lot of fun.

  I’m not the greatest Halloween fan but I love the mystical, imaginative side of it.

  Dimly light, swathes of mist envelope the landscape, glowing pumpkins in warm colors and not very serious stories, but always associated with a lot of fun.

 It is also the main harvest time of pumpkins in my garden,

you can cook wonderful dishes and soups
made out of pumpkins or use them just for decoration or make a pumpkin cutting event
for family and friends.

 

 I used some papers from our wonderful autumn collections.

Paper sheet ‘ The colours of fall’ from the paper collection ‘Walking in the forest’ was perfect for me as background.

Beautiful green shades together with the delicate old trees were very suitable for my autumn mixed media layout.

 The background brings the warm colors of the pumpkins to light.

some details

 I love layouts with a natural look and so can also find

acorns, autumn leaves and branches (cutting dies).

 Maja Design papers

are very well suited for working with

cutting dies, because
 papers are very stable and bring along the appropriate color shades.

a beautiful man and you can do it yourself 🙂

 Exciting, what you can discover in autumn foliage

Thanks for your visit and Happy Halloween!

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here today and I have a new layout to share made for my October inspiration. I have also prepared a VIDEO TUTORIAL so you can watch all the details.

 

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I choose some papers from the gorgeous ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background I used the back side of the ”Spending Time” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

Next I colored my page with some Lindy’s Gang sprays and made some stamping here and there.

The Dusty Attic chipboards I used were painted with several Finnabair acrylic paints.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.

 

Paper used:

 

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello Maja fans,

Kavitha here today.I have a very cool blue card to show you using  papers from “Vintage summer basics”,totally loved this shade of blue which look great combined with white.I used lots of laces to go with the soft look,some die cuts cut with the same pattern papers used for the base.For the focal point i used a chipboard design and a butterfly,i use butterflies always as fillers,but i guess it looks cool even as focal point.

Maja papers used: 1904 , 1904 bs , 1916 , 1916 bs

Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this autumn layout.

I”m very lucky to live close to the forest and the shore of the  North Sea

I love being outdoors and taking long walks especially in the forest  .

The colors are so beautiful this time of the year and I love the earthy smell, and a hot mug of coco with whipped cream when I get home to warm up.

There is so much to see while nature is preparing it self for winter.

I tried to bring you that feeling in todays layout.

I used the walk in the forest Collection for this one, love the warm colors and cosy patterns of this collection.

The little girl is holding a bouquet of flowers and I made it come back in this corner, the branches are cut out of a sheet of cork with a branch die from sizzix .

The fawns are made using the playful fawns die from memory box.

This branch comes from my stash and I have no idea what brand it is, but I used distress embossing powders to color it and gave it more dept with a layer of clear embossing powder on top of it.

Added some dewdrops for a finishing touch.

Hope I gave you some autumn inspiration to make your own layout, tag, card or anything.

Happy Fall to you all, enjoy it.
