Hello friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share my newest Maja Designs creation. I have reverted back to a favourite collection this time around……. “Summertime”. With this beautiful collection I created a soft shabby layout full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers from Penny Lane Garden Collection. Petaloo are sponsoring Maja this month with their wonderful flowers…… thank you Petaloo !!

……………”Dream”………….

Oh how I loved this collection I think I have already mentioned that but it definitely is a favourite for me. As always my layout evolved slowly and didn’t finish off how I had imagined by I was quite happy with my end project. Below are all the papers I used from this collection. Some of the papers were gessoed to help with the effect I was looking for. I have used lots of media and paints to colour my papers and Dusty Attic chipboards.

My background papers was firstly primed with gesso and then I laid down a run of 3D Gloss gel and over that some very distressed muslin. This was my starting point and from here I layered my page with photo matting papers from the Summertime collection and then the sepia toned photo over the top.

Around my photo I used some beautiful Leafy Stem Dusty Attic chipboards. To the right of the photo I added in a Arch Window also from Dusty Attic. These were all dressed in Crackle Pastes, inks (Distress Inks) and Prima Art Alchemy Green Gold Acrylic Paint. You can see above that I also added in some Art Stones.

I did a little stamping with a Carte Postal stamp at the side of my photo and very randomly with a script stamp.

For my title I have used a very old rub on that I added to some transparency paper and cut out. I have the hugest collection of rub-ons that I just can’t get enough of!!

2017-09-12 Dream - Maja Design Creation - September 085

You can see above that I also added some Texture Crackle Paste to my background page to help bring the project together. Lastly I went over my whole project dry brushing with white gesso to help keep this very muted and to of course keep the photo the centre of attention. This photo is of my youngest daughter which was taken by a friend at a school excursion a few years back now when she was only in prep. How time flies she is now a highschooler!!

Well that is all from me today. I so hope that you enjoyed my project and I hope to see you back here again very soon. Stay tuned for more design team prettiness tomorrow.

Take care and happy crafting!!Tina-sign

Hello and a huge welcome to you! Today I am here to share my next project which I created using Maja’s gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics combined with Coffee in the Arbour. If you keep scrolling I will share a few close-ups and more details of how I used these beautiful papers.

“Best Friends”

I love yellows…….. and browns just seems to be the thing I go to next! So for this creation I came across this photo of my gorgeous youngest daughter and our furbaby Rafael some time ago in the back yard at home. It was one of those lucky shots that it was fortunate that they were looking my way at the correct time. I had printed this photo off a few times and I never liked the way this came out in the sepia tone so I had stashed it away. But for these project the colours fit beautifully, wouldn’t you agree?

2017-08-21 Best Friend 006 (600x800)

With papers tearing seems to be a natural progession. My first sheet (background sheet) was  Coffee in the Arbour’s Lemoncurd. The soft tones to this paper drew me to it instantly. I did a little stenciling on it but mainly left it’s beauty remain. I then cut the frame from the Vintage Spring Basics 1st of March Sheet. Did some distressing and adhered it to the background piece. With the remainder of the 1st of March I did some tearing and adhered the torn middle section to the page.  I love the images of the calender and other elements that are this sheet. They are just gorgeous and really lend itself to my project!

2017-08-21 Best Friend 026 (800x635)

I also used the back of 1st of March to help the photo pop a little. Again tearing papers to fit the matting of my photo. The other torn pieces were layered amoungst the chipboards and flowers and clocks that I cut from from the Vintage Autumn Basics No.XVI. These were cut carefully and sanded and distressed to give that worn feeling.

2017-08-21 Best Friend 009 - Copy (800x600)

I used some Dusty Attic chipboards inked with Distress Inks and also some paper moulds that I made a few weeks back along with a charm that I picked up in my travels to Taiwan a few months back. I love the simplicity of it.  When everything was layered I then dry brushed my elements to soften the page and then added in a few microbeads with some 3D Gel.

Hello and welcome. Tina O back with you today.

My newest creation, “Picture Perfect” has been designed using the gorgeous Denim and Friends collection. This is such a versatile collection that I decided to do a beachside layout. My favourite thing to create, as we live in one of the most beautiful beach inspired places in the world ! Much of our spare time and holidays are spent at the beachside, therefore I have an endless supply of photographs from these memorable moments.

I have kept my layout very simple using a smaller sized portrait colour photo of my youngest daughter at the beach getting very very muddy. I caught her unawares as you can see from the photo. Denim and Friends has many gorgeously stunning pages that would work perfectly for a beachside background page. Today I decided to use the bs of Fashion to start my layout. I primed it with gesso and did some stenciling using the Dusty Attic Confetti stencil with crackle texture paste. Once it dried a did some colouring with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and water.

2017-08-01 Picture Perfect 019 (800x600)

I did lots of layering of chipboards (Dusty Attic) to create a design to work a photo into. These chipboards were dressed in Rust Pastes, Gesso, Distress Inks and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

2017-08-01 Picture Perfect 016 (800x600)

I made some acetate embellishments using 49andMarket’s Sand and Sea stamp set. Other embellishments included a lace motif and beautiful 49andMarket Sea Side Blooms in Sea Breeze colour.

2017-08-01 Picture Perfect 017

I wanted to emulate the mud that my daughter was digging in. To do this I have used fibres coloured with rust pastes. I dried these and gave them a coating of gesso and then randomly wiped over with Rust Pastes. I also adhered over the fibres with some Art Stones with 3D Gloss Gel. And then coloured them using some Nuvo Mousse.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today.

Until next time happy scrapping. x

Hello and welcome back to the home of Maja Designs. Tina Ollett back with you today to share my first layout using the gorgeous new collection of “Denim and Friends”.

This project has been titled

“You are Awesome”……

2017-07-18 You are awesome 019 (1024x1016)

Opening my box of goodies from the lovely ladies at Maja Designs was a definite hightlight of my week. My squeals of pure joy and excitement brought a number of my family members walking down to the art room to find out exactly what was going on.

2017-07-18 You are awesome 012 (1024x768)

Doing pretty layouts with copious amounts of flowers and embellishments is my go to thing for most projects, but today because this is mainly a masculine paper collection, I have opted to use a photo of my son who is quite happy not to be the centre of attention ever especially in my scrapbooking, but today it is! I captured this photo of him a number of years ago whilst we were on holidays at the Great Barrier Reef. We were on our way out to the reef on a very windy day and he was so very excited to be going snorkeling. The photo says it all.

2017-07-18 You are awesome 014 (768x1024)

I decided to keep this layout very simple with layering of all this fabulous collection. Of course I love to use woodgrain patterns to custom make the design for my chipboards and photo to sit. I used 2 sheets of Wood to create this using the first for the background page.

Denim-P

2017-07-18 You are awesome 016

I have also added in the bs of Leather ( I also love polkadots) as a square frame to sit all of the cut wood to sit upon. And over this I have cut sections of Stonewashed to lay over this. My photo is also matted with Stonewashed.

Autumn-Basics-P

 I have also used sheets of papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection, cutting some of the hot air balloons for embellishments to add to my project.

2017-07-18 You are awesome 015

I have also used lots of yummy Dusty Attic chipboards to emphasise my photo. These were inked and painted and layered amongst the layers of papers to allow more dimension to my layout.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Remember to return tomorrow for another Design Team creation. Until then take care and happy crafting. xxx

Welcome back and hello!
I hope this post finds you happy and well. Today I have for you a layout inspired by a gorgeous photo of my eldest daughter. This I have titled

“Dream”…….

I have used a combination of Maja Designs gorgeously stunning Vintage Summer and Vintage Spring Basics collection to create my layered background of torn and distressed papers.
  I can’t tell you how often I have wanted to use this piece of chipboard……but finally it happened for the perfect project. I think it just fit wonderfully here. You can see these pieces above cut into 2’s and tucked amoungst my gorgeous Maja paper layers. Yay I was so happy when this worked!
I love this Title chipboard. They are totally gorgeous. This one was dressed in some Sugar Plum acrylic paint and then I toned it down a little to compliment my page with some white gesso and of course some Dress My Craft sparkling dust……..
I have also used a Swirly Frame chipboard. It was cut into two and used to frame these beautiful photo’s of my daughter Ashlea. We held a Mad Hatters Tea Party a little while back and she dressed as the Queen and looked just stunning. These photos of course were changed to a Sepia tone to help fit my layout and the moodboard.
Here you can see my Fleur de Lis coloured with inks and paints. Atop of it I sat the small Decorative #1 frame and then on top of that a Mini Clock Face. The mini clockfaces are the perfect fit for this frame!!
Okay and I love me a little or quite a lot however you look at it, of the Dress My Craft
Princess Mix Sequins. I also gave my layout a good sprinkling of  Dress My Craft’s Sparkling Dust just to make it shine that little bit more.
I also added in some florals but I kept it quite minimal for me that is. Above you can see the 49andMarket Floral Mixology flowers that I used. These are the Pina Colada coloured florals that I changed up by wiping over with a little Dusty Sugar Plum acrylic paint.
I have also tucked in a little lace and muslin to keep the layout as soft as possible.
And lastly these gorgeous Heart Arrows. I have dressed both the large and the small chippies in some Star Dust Stickles to really make them pop. I then added them into my clusters of flowers.
 Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a beautiful week and find some time for yourself !
Big hugs …..
