Posted by Mary Tzalla

Hello my friends!

This is my very first post for Maja Design as a design team member and I’m so excited to share it with you!

Maja design has amazingly beautiful papers and designing with them is like a dream come true to me! I’m so very thankful to Camilla and Marie for having me in the team and for the their trust in me!

Well, here is my layout…


I found my photo on Pinterest but unfortunately I don’t know who the photographer is… …so I want to give to the ”unknow” photographer all the credits.

For the background I have used the ”Greenery” paper from ”Summertime” Collection. I just loved that paper and matched so well with my photo.

I also have made a Video Tutorial…

…and some detailed photos…

I added texture to the background with a light paste mixed with ”Gold Opal Magic” mica powder and applied it through a stencil. Then I used the ”Edelweiss Moss Green” and the ”Peony Scarlet Red” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist to give some colour. Some stamps and my background was ready.

Behind my photo, I made two layers using both sides of the ”Taste the Strawberries” paper from the same collection. I distress the edges with a scissor to give them a vintage look.

The green flowers were misted with the same mist I used for my background. Oh, I wish I could show you how shiny they are.

All the chipboards I used are from 2Crafty Chipboard. I painted the florar chipboard with ”Metallique Emerald Green” Finnabair acrylic paint. The title was heat embossed with ”Terra Cotta Rust” Lindy’s stamp Gang embossing powder.

I finished my layout by adding some gems and some ”Bronze” micro beads.
