Hello again Sweet Maja fans.
As you could read in yesterdays post of Maja , Maja Design is one of the sponsors of the More Than Words challenge and some of us Maja girls had the honour to make some inspirational
work for the main challenge.
The subject is Memories and in addition you need to uses frames.
Most memories for me are precious, especially this picture of my two kids. My son has autism so not really a cuddler and doesn’t really like physical contact.
I wanted a nice picture from the both of them and he spontaneously gave her a big hug. Although they are grown up now ,this still is one of my favorite pictures.
I used some raisinframes I once bought in our local dollar store, added some embellies and flatback pearls
Tucked some small frames behind the flowers
And a little frame peeping through a tear in the paper with a clock symbolizing how fast time goes by.
Thank you for visiting today
I hope I gave you some inspiration with this Lay out, Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for some new gorgeous work of one of the other Maja Girls.
the papers I used are from the vintage summer basics, flowers from Wild orchid crafts and the frames come from the local dollarstore.
Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
In May Maja is the sponsor for More Than Words challenge blog and some of us from the Maja DT took part in the May Main Challenge. The subject was “Memories” and the additional requirement was to use frames. And here’s my take:
Working on this layout was such a pleasure! Memories after all are essential to our hobby, and who doesn’t love using frames? 🙂 Here I combined turqouise and sand papers from the Denim&Friends collection and followed this colour combo, adding touches of gold and white.
First I layered distressed papers for the background and splashed them with golden-brown Prima mist.
Then I mounted my photo upon chipboard frames, randomly selected from my stash and filled with bits of papers:
I completed my design with a flower cluster and buttons:
I also included some acrylic gems and art clay embellishments, like this wing that I coloured with acrylic paints for an ombre effect:
I really like the way it turned out, with my favourite colours and a favourite person in the photo 😉
And here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers:
Jeans & T-shirt
Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; mist: Prima; buttons: Lemoncraft; clay molds: Prosvet; clay: Martha Stewart; gems, stems: my stash.
That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and drop by tomorrow for more inspiration from my talented friends!
today i have quiet a different card to share.Its a envelope style card which also serves as a tiny mini album.I made two envelopes and attached it together and added a ribbon closure.I have used one of my favorite collection “vintage baby”,i guess its been few years since its released but its so popular and i still keep seeing projects with this everywhere,so after hoarding it for so long i decided to use it:)
Maja designs papers are so sturdy and double sided ,so i used the paper itself to make the envelopes instead of cardstock,in this way it looks more elegant.
The inside of the envelopes has two photo mats one small and one big.The inside of the envelope can be filled with gift cards,or journal tag etc.
Maja papers used:Cherish , Our little miracle , Baby shower bs , Ephemera cards
Thank you for stopping by.
Today I’m up on Maje Design blog with a new layout featuring the Celebration collection. I chose a photo of my father with his parents and his sister taken in 1959.
I tore the Champagne sheet in three pieces, and I glued them to the Anniversary. Then, I stamped the background with a brown ink before priming it with clear gesso.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally.
I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper, that I colored with green and brown inks.
I cut a few papers to add under the photo as well as sisal. I started to build the composition with different elements: flowers, doily’s scraps, leaves and a black street sign.
When happy, I colored lightly the background with green, brown and pink inks.
To finish the layout I added some microbeads.
