Hello dears and welcome to the blog!

Today, I would like to share with you my inspiration for April. This time I have something a little bit different from my comfort zone. I made two cards with papers from the ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection along with lots of flowers and laces.

For the background I choose the ”Singing in the rain” paper and I used it on both cards. I made two layers on the first one with the ”The Great Nature” and the ”Woodlands” papers. I added color with the Edelweiss Moss Green Lindy’s Gang spray. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Fairy Wings”.

I have also made two layers on the second one with the ”Gardening” and the ”Time for reflection” papers. I used the Open Arms Amethyst Lindy’s Gang spray to add some color. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Iris Potion”. The chipboards are Dusty Attic and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

When everything was glued down, I added some glass beads and sprinkled a little glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Hello Maja friends!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for March. I made a soft romantic page with lots of flowers, laces and chipboards.

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

I used the ”All Dressed Up” paper for my background and I added some layers on it with the ”To the Party”, the ”Jubilee” and the ”Good Times” papers.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Cotton Candy Pink” and the ”Open Arms Amethyst” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the ”Swirly Frame” chipboard and the word title with the Sparks ”Butterfly Spells” acrylic paint.  The ”Foliage #10” chipboards were also painted with the metallique ”White Pearl” acrylic paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for February. I made a soft blue tone layout with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across that beautiful and mysterious photo of a girl with a horse. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose the ”You’re Invited” paper for my background and I added some layers with the ”Party” paper and the ”Anniversary” using both sides of it.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with white crackle paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Blue Hawaiian Blue” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the flourish chipboards and the title with the Sparks ”Magical Pond” acrylic paint. When dried, I gently rubbed on them some ”Vintage Gold” Wax. The ”Flower Stamens” chipboards were also painted with the Sparks ”Raven Black” and they were rubbed first with the ”Blue Velvet” Wax and then with the ”Vintage Gold”. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some crystal and turquoise glass beads and sprinkled some glitter. I final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

Hello Maja fans!

I wish you all a very happy New Year full of health, love and hapiness. Mary with you today to share my inspiration for January.

When I found that beautiful photo on Pinterest, I wanted to scrap it and finally I made a soft wintery layout in grey and teal colors, with lots of flowers, laces and chipboards. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I combined two paper collections, the ”Nyhavn” and the ”Vintage Summer Basics”. I choose the ”Sitting at the Dock” paper from the ”Nyhavn” collection for my background paper. Then, I added some layers with the ”Eating Out” paper from the same collection and the ”1934” from the ”Vintage Summer Basics”.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with snowflake paste and a stencil and then I used graphite paste with a second stencil to give more contrast on my page. I also made some stamping here and there. I continued by coloring my page with the sparks ”Mermaid Sparkle” acrylic paint. 

I painted the flourish chipboards with the metallique ”Silver Spoon” acrylic paint and the chipboard title with the sparks ”Mermaid Sparkle” acrylic paint. Then, I gently rubbed them with the ”Vintage Gold” wax. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and glitter. I also made some splatters with white gesso diluted with some water.
