Today I proudly present Maja Designs new baby: the “Gift for you” collection.
What better way to show this new ‘baby’ by altering this carriage!!!
Took me quite some time and lots of work but I’m very pleased how it turned out!
Lot of my work already found a new home but my girls insisted that I kept this one! 🙂
At first I started to paint the carriage as the original color was an ugly brown color.
Took me quite some layers of gesso to lighten it.
Can’t live without gesso! LOL
Added some turquoise touches so it matches my living room.
The base of the carriage was made using the ‘wrapped in old newspaper’ sheet.
Made the blanket with the ‘from someone special’ and ‘wrapped in old newspaper’ sheet.
The edges of the carriage is the border strip from the ‘ handwritten Post Card’ sheet.
The paper blanket with lace and a piece of a flower trim.
Added a small bear charm, isn’t he cute?!!
Painted the metal pieces of the carriage with some metal paint.
The front side.
Punched some flowers from the ‘wrapped in old newspaper’ sheet.
Distressed the edges and glued them on both sides.
A lovely bow of turquoise ribbon on the back.
Took me some time to make the top of the carriage.
Cut out some small strips of the ‘hope to see you soon’ sheet and distressed all the edges.
Some inking on the sides to get an older look.
Added some beautiful lace on the small strips.
A lovely flower accent on the top.
The wheels were also painted with the metal paint.
Although this is a Chrismas collection, these papers can be used for non-traditional projects as well!!
Hope to see you soon
