I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, then applied clear crackle on to some of the pieces. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with Shimmerz Inklings chocolate & diamonds for the brown used, & giddy about green for the green used. I also inked the edges with a brown ink pad, versa mark-pine cone…

Good morning, Maja Friends.

Not recently I’ve found the pictures I’ve made late spring . I realized I can not wait when the warmth will come for a long time. I miss those small shadows from the sun, the small leaves on the trees and the birds’ singing. So much.

So I decided to create a very light, simple Layout full of air.

Spring Layout by Elena Olinevich product by Maja Design

I didn’t want to make it busy with the embellishments, so I only added some paper layers using the die cuts and a few flowers.

It was so easy to do and to keep the shabby feeling.

I didn’t want to give it bright colors, I like such moderate and translucent view. so I chose Vintage Romance collection

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Sofiero paper collection. I chose a photo of my family: my grandmother, my father, my aunt and unfortunately I’m not sure who the other two are.

Family by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I cut a few papers from the Vintage Romance 6×6 pad that I glued on the background. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso.

I added a design with a stencil and different pastes: clear crackle, white crackle, and white stone. When dry, I added some color with Iris Potion Sparks paint that I watered down.

I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the vine with Raven Sparks and the leaves with Twinkling H2Os. Then I covered them with the Antique Brillance Amethyst Magic. I added some wax on the background too to add a vintage look.

I colored some flowers with a spray made of Primary Element and water. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with an Archival ink and with the Raven Sparks. I added a little bird house that I colored with the wax too.

To finish the layout I added some micro beads.

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcoem to the blog today :)

Have you seen the refreshed edition of the Sofiero collection that has been released lately? When I got the news abotu it I was very excited, firstly because when I began designing for Maja Design the collection was already retired, and secondly, because of the new addition, the Monochrome papers! This is such a good idea, no more painful decisions about which beautiful papers hide in the background! :) And as this is a special release, I decided to make a special layout about a certain lady in red. Be careful, huge amount of cuteness ahead!

I layered contrasting designs in the background and separated them with pom pom trim and lace:

I cut out a heart shape and made an initial plaque, then I added a resin angel wing:

mdkora1

I built the flowers cluster between the photos and placed the title in the decorative frame:

mdkora4

I also added some die-cut leaves to decorate the photo:

I decorate the other photo with a sentiment I cut out from one of the signature strips:

Adding bling and accenting details with glitter was a finishing touch. I really like the way the layout turned out, the beautiful pastel papers making the photos stand out! And look at this yummy dimension :)

And here’s what I used for the layout:

The Sofiero papers:

Other: dies: Spellbinders, Prima, Magnolia; flowers: Prima, Blue Fern Studios; chipboard: Tattered Angels; bling, trim, lace: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting the blog today, and see you later!
