Welcome and a very big hello !
Tina O with you here today. It has been a couple of months since I was last here and I am so very happy to be back on board creating again for Maja Designs. I have been away recuperating from shoulder surgery but I am very happy and so glad to be back at my table again creating.
Today I have something beachy for you. Here in Australia Summer is a very special time for our family. Lots of trips to the beach and just getting out and enjoying the beautiful sunshine and our gorgeous beaches. The photo I have used today is of my youngest who just loooooooves the beach. And every chance she gets she will be found digging away in the sand, or mud digging holes or just building sandcastles. I adore this photo of her from back in 2012 at a holiday gettaway in Forster, New South Wales. Again she is digging away and very much caught up in the moment !

Since the togs she was wearing are a navy blue I decided to keep with these colours and add some neutral tones and have kept it very earthy. I have only used a little media being distress inks and gesso along with Rust Paste.
My starting point was tearing up my sheet of Vintage Autumn Basics and layering it using both sides along with some Dusty Attic corrugated board. These pieces were laid over the top of Vintage Autumn Basics and then primed with some clear gesso. I did some drying brushing with white gesso to give that whitewashed beachy look and also did some splatterings of white.
I have used some new Dusty Attic release beach chipboards, lots of 49andMarket Floral Mixology and Garden Seeds flowers along with some seashells to help with my embellishing of the page.
The chipboards were dressed in gesso and I randomly applied rust paste let it dry for a few moments and rubbed the rust paste until the colour bleed into the gesso.
Well that is all from me today, I do hope I have inspired you in some way big or small to create something this week for yourself! Enjoy the time you create and happy scrapping.
Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the new collection Joyous Winterdays. I chose a photomontage I’ve made.
First I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added some colors with different inks, paints, and Magical: I used different stamps to add the inks, I splattered some paints, …
Next, I mixed a white acrylic paint with texture powder to add a design with a stencil.
I die cut some pine needles in the monochromes shades of Joyous Winterdays. I die cut also some snowflakes and mistletoe in a watercolor paper. I painted the snowflakes with pearl and gold paints.
I sprayed the mistletoe and the white flowers with a spray, made of gold opal magic mica powder, to add some shimmer.
I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel. And to finish the layout I added some glitter and microbeads.

Monochromes – Green
Its Keren here and I created a layout for Maja Design using the new Denim & Friends collection. I used the “Worn Indigo” paper as the background for the layout as as well as the “No XXI” from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection which really go well together.
I used the blue toned papers from these collections as I wanted to mimic the colors in my picture.
I framed the photo with a chipboard frame which I colored in blue to match the layout and then I added matching blue flowers as well.
I incorporated some gold into the layout because I love the combination of blue and gold.
Here are the papers I used from both collection:

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,
Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.
As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.
Now on to my cards……
