Hi everyone! Here I am with a late post using the gorgeous new papers from Maja Design’s latest Christmas Collection, Holiday in the Alps.

But for the leaves I have used some Monochromes from the collection Shades of Christmas, since there was no green colours in the new collection.

I have handpainted the image with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

Under you get a closer look of some of the details.

I have added some white paint called White Gesso here and there all over the box. Maybe this box will be under someones three this Christmas?

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Hello Maja Friends,

1 day left and we will meet Winter and the most busy month of the year December.

It is never too early to start your Christmas preparations

 

Since I make some sweet gift for my friends and put the chocolate inside the cards, I decided to create simple boxes to hold the chocolate bars

I cut out the images of the lady from the brand new Holiday in the Alpes collection

I like this silver – blue – white palette I chose , it’s more traditional for me since my childhood and reminds me the heavy snow we had many many years ago in Belarus

So I used mostly white embellishments – crochet, flowers and and some silver accents.

and I love the quote

Hello again sweet Maja fans ,

today I bring you this little  winter scenery I made in a jar.

I used the Holiday in the Alps collection for it.

The back ground is made with the Winter night from the 6″x 6″ papers and the snowman and little deer are cut out of the Winter ephemera sheet of the 12″x12″papers.

I added some fake snow and there you have a winter wonderland in a jar. Isn’t it super cute?.

I really love how this turned out and want to enjoy it day and night or evening  so I added a little light in it as well.

I hope you like what I made for you this time.

Thank you for visiting , hope to see you back next time.

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my November inspiration using gorgeous Maja Design papers, Dusty Attic chipboard and 49 and Market flowers.

And again I found on Pinterest a photo that inspired me to create that romantic layout in red and green tones. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

The paper I used is the ”Walk With Me” from the Vintage Romance collection and I started by applying a coat of clear gesso. Then, I created texture with Finnabair icing paste in White Gold and a stencil. When the paste dried, I randomly stamped using 49 and Market stamp sets. I added color with the Lindy’s Gang ”Edelweiss Moss Green” and ”Greased Lightnin’ Green” sprays.

Next, I painted the ”Flower Buds #2” with Finnabair Royal Red and Golden Moss acrylic paints. Continued with the ”Ornate Motifs #2” and the title which were also painted with the Golden Moss paint and then some wax in Green Brocade was randomly rubbed on them. And lastly, I used the Finnabair Sparks paint in Raven Black to color the ”Fancy Label” chipboard.

I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market  flowers from the ”Blossom Blends, Country & Cottage Blooms” sets.

At last, I added art stones, glass beads and glitter and made splatters with white gesso diluted with water.

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!
