I love working with  Maja Design Paper, it is the softest paper I have ever worked with, so it distresses beautifully. Being a paper layer, I find the Collections easy to work with, plus you can combine Collections, as they also blend beautifully…. This corner shows distressed, hand stitched, paper layers using corrugated paper in the layers…

c9d4d4b97c0a491a9518cf51559736fa

I primed the TH icicle, old wooden fence & chicken wire with clear gesso, the rest of the chipboard was primed with white gesso. I then painted all the chipboard,& the TH icicle, except for the chicken wire with clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried I painted the white pieces with LuminArt-Heavenly White H20, & for the brown I used Shimmerz -Chocolate & Diamonds…

Tutorial

Where I live, we get WINTER, snow & cold. Our days are short, & I spend much more time inside our home, so I do more Scrapbooking, in the winter months, to pass the winter away. I love to work on winter LO’s because of the Snow Texture. You may find my tuts confusing, because I do them in the order that I have taken the photos. I have so much on the go, when I am working on a project, plus I have to allow pieces to dry. I do not use a heat gun, I let the pieces dry naturally, either in my front south window, when the sun is out, or my bedroom closest, the smallest warmest room in our home. It has a floor heater, so a placed a rack over top it, & will place pieces of the projects, on that to allow quicker drying…..

36e9fd651db44df2a40713d95e53bf32

I trimmed the outside edges of the 6th of December sheet, (about 1/8 of a inch),distressed the edges & glued it onto the 8th of December sheet.. I then hand stitched these pieces together…

Once the embossing paste dried, I brushed on some Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops-Blizzard,  I love the Translucent paste, you don’t loose the detail in the paper…

I cut out these 2 pieces from the Dec 8th sheet, did some punch work using Martha Stewart Cherish punch, glued on the Dec 6th sheet, hand stitched & distressed the edges….

I did distressed paper layers, some punch work,, & used lace in the layers. I then hand stitched the back ground, & the top & bottom pieces. I glued the top & bottom onto the back ground only on the outside edges, so I can tuck in embellishments….

fb69aa2e8eeb4f0b86b9311756c8cd63

I also did some stencil work. I painted the DA Lacey Nameplate with white gesso, & once the gesso dried I painted it with Shimmerz Inklings Sheer Bliss. I then inked the edges & cut out a piece from the 1891 sheet & glued it on to the name plate….

be563d5a23304a81be679184f0117375

I painted the rest of the chipboard with clear gesso, then some of the pieces with clear crackle. I then painted the pieces “brown” Shimmerz Inklings Chocolate & Diamonds, “Teal” LuminArt Silk, teal zircon, (once the teal dried I topped it off with Shimmerz Sheer Bliss to tone it down). I used liquid pearls, robin’s egg for the pearls…..
