Hello again!

Today I’m back with another Christmas layout which I’ve chosen to frame with white, blue and glitter.

I layered stripes of paper to create focus on the right hand side. I have added some texture in two steps – first using a diamond stencil with gesso, then I applied heavy gel paste mixed with dry glitter using another stencil with a flourish pattern.


I tried to balance the white with adding some more colour, using watercolours in similar tones.DSC_0008 MD

Hello MD fans!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year with our family in Poland which resulted with plenty of photos which I can use for my projects in the coming weeks 🙂

I also wanted to play by the rules of our January moodboard so I picked neutral background papers and I added colours, which perhaps are not so traditional for Christmas scene. I used Nyhavn and Vintage Summer basics collections, personally I would associate both of them with summer, but I think they worked just as great with a winter theme.

I played with the layers of filigree elements. Some of them are cut with die cuts, some are punched with border punch and I added a chipboard too. I tried to use both sides of the papers, to take a full advantage of their variety.

The flower images which you can find in different Maja Design papers and cut out, like I did with the hydrangeas here are a beautiful complement to any flower cluster or layering.

Hi Maja fans

Zanka here…I’m so happy to be sharing my first official work as a DT member of Maja Design, a team of my dreams !!! As I celebrated my birthday recently, for my first project I picked one of my favorite baby shots with my Mom. It’s a vintage scene and I could almost pick any of Maja papers to frame it, but eventually I picked an elegant palette of greyish beige combined with dusty pink and purple. Not so much media added- I really wanted to showcase the subtle tones and patterns of the papers ! Would you say that I combined 4 different collections here? They coordinate in such an perfect way.

I have combined the papers with the pieces of a vintage lace and I layered few scraps of different collections to have some variation in the background.

A close up : I love the rose images which can be found in few Maja Design patterns. It’s worth some patience to fussy cut and the roses will lift any blank space!

Supplies Maja Design:

No X – Vintage Autumn Basics

No II – Vintage Autumn Basics

4th of December – Vintage Frost Basics
