Hello there and welcome. Tina with you today to share my newest creation using Maja Designs beautiful Vintage Summer Basics. This has been titled, “Because of you…”.
I love nothing better than to tear papers and sometimes I get a bit carried away. When it comes time to layering I make it more than difficult to jigsaw it back together. And usually I have something in mind and the end result is nothing at all like that picture in my head that I started with. This is exactly what happened when creating this layout. The picture in my head was to be predominately browns with a smiggin of pinks. But alas this was not the case here……
I have used the gorgeous Vintage Summer Basics for the overall designing of my layout. My Base page was 1909 bs. I absolutely love the detailed background on this but I felt it still needed a little more to help my photo pop. I also did a little random stamping using Gabi’s Postcard Acrylic Stamps.

and Vintage Autumn Basics No XVI
The Vintage Summer Basics 1905 paper was cut and used as a border. It was distressed, torn in sections and adhered to frame my photo. I also used some cool Dusty Attic Stitching chipboard over the top. I have torn the chipboard to give a rustic charm to my page.
I have also used the Vintage Summer Basics 1923 for my stamped title quote which reads:
Because of you, I laugh a little harder,
Cry a little less and smile a little more.
Here you can see all the pieces of Dusty chippies that I have added to this dimensional cluster. The skeleton clock, foliage and the gorgeous frame. They were all dressed in crackle paste and distress inks. The skeleton clock was embossed and then sanded to create a vintage worn look.
And again, here you can see the 1908 patterned paper used along with 1905 and 1923 as the matting foundation for my photo.
You can see here the gorgeous detail on the background paper. I have also added in some art stones and cheesecloth to soften my layout a little more. The clusters were all dry brushed with gesso to tone down the colours and bring it all together. I have made a full list below of all the materials used in creating this layout for your convenience.
