Hello Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂
It’s Maja here to share a delicate, girly page I made with a photo of my beautiful niece:
She’s such a darling, sweet girl, so I wanted to give her photo a delicate, soft and ethereal background. Therefore I chose the Vintage Spring Basics papers and started by distressing and layering two sheets and then adding some textured pattern with white gesso:
Then around the photo I arranged the clusters of flowers, cut-outs and sme bling:
I had this plastic frame in my stash for ages and it turned out it makes a perfect match with a resin cameo. So I glued them together and placed among the flowers:
To add an interesting detail, I tore a bit of the bottom part of the papers and inserted a piece of lace:
I also used a little trick with this chipboard frame. Originally, it was smaller than the photo, so I cut it apart diagonally and placed above the photo corners:
I hope the layout well portraits her sweet personality 🙂
Maja Design papers: Vintage Spring Basics: 5th of April, 6th of March, 4th of May, 4th of May bs, 4th of April; Vintage Autumn Basics: no. XVI. Other: chipboard : Stempell&Kartoon; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Sizzix; resin frame and cameo, guipure lace: from my stash.

Lovely layout with sweet details, and a wonderful picture.
Such a beautiful layout around your lovely niece. I really love the soft layers and colors. Thanks for sharing.
Your niece is truely beautiful. Love your layers, details and textures. Don’t you love it when you can use stuff that’s been waiting on a shelf for years? I just used a bunch of Martha Stewart daisies for a baby album and it felt so good that they finally fitted in. Your cameo and frame creates wonders for this layout.
