Dear Maja fans,

All of the sudden it’s June and it’s time for a brand new mood board. ♥ I hope you’ll be inspired..

MB-June-17

This is how we use the mood boards:

Definition mood board – n

[a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other]

We are using mood boards for our challenges. We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. However – we highly recommend you to follow the theme.. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme.

We will pick a winner and present it here on the blog June 26th.

Have in mind that these challenges are a really great way for us to discover new talents and maybe some future Creative Team members…

How to participate?

♥ Create anything you’ll like – a layout, a card, something altered or maybe a canvas. Use Maja papers primarily! Take a nice picture of it and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu. We also need to know your full name, address and a phone number. Please specify what collection you would like to win, if you are the lucky one. We will also want to know if you would like it in the size 12*12 or 6*6. Please send us the pictures in the size of 800 pixels on the width. We would be so grateful if you also could change the file name of the photo to your first and last name including your country.

♥ Feel free to send us more than one picture, from different angles or some close-ups – or why not more than one project?

♥ Publish the project/s on your blog (or/and any social media, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest) with a link to our site. Please also add the image of the mood board.

♥ Feel free to combine your entry with other challenges.

♥ The winner will be revealed the last Monday each month, at the Maja blog. The winner will be sent one collection by their choice, and also a digital Winner’s Badge to use and brag with.

We need your creation by June 22nd at the latest.

Thank you & Good luck!

And here comes some fantastic inspiration from our incredible team:

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring another picture of one of Camilla her little girls. When I saw this picture I totally fell in love with it and I thought “well” I need to scrap it. For this layout I used the pretty Nyhavn collection and to accent the beauitful papers I added some gorgeous pink Prima Marketing flowers from the Wild and Free collection the black flowers I added are by Petaloo. I am totally hooked on using flairs ate the moment here I also used one from Cuts2luv.

First I cut a large v part out of the lighter colored paper then I stamped around the edges with the stitched stamp designed by Gabrielle Pollacco. Then I added some distressink victorian velvet with a blending tool and added some text and dod stamps to the rest of the background. Then I used two differents stencils for my layout. The chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and the are treated with gesso and ink.

On the stripes and dots stencil I added some black flatback gem stones to make it pop of the page, then I added some lace in the v-shape and sprayed all over my page to soften it up a little. At he end i cut out some clocks form the “Vintage Autumn Basics”collection.

At the end I also added some metal embellishments I just can’t live without those things……This was a lot of fun to make as I don’t have a daughter. These pictures make me happy thank you Camilla for using it…..

Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you layout. I decided to create this project inspired by my last pictures taken for the school. I love black and white photography. Mystical clouds, darkness of the mountains and the fog – amazing combination. I tried to keep my layout really simple and clean – take a look, please :

LO

Few layers of the paper, gaze and some laces – added irregularly, like the clouds …

LayoutLayout… matching sentence. Just a few words gives as really nice focus point next to the picture.

Layout

 

Metal embellishments, die-cut chipboards from Scrapiniec, a little bit of colours … LayoutLike you could see… you don’t need many add-ons to create some project. Use your imagination and create.

Hugs, Paulina

Here comes a Confirmand card I made to my friends son. And I have used papers and image from the Summer Crush collection for this one. I think the papers have really sharp and cool colours, which fits sporty young people :) It is my son (three years) who is holding the card on the photo above.

Here comes some more pictures of the lollipop card:

The lollipop cards ar fun to make, and they are faster to make than my ordinary cards. Here comes a closeup.

Tags from Magnolia with texts from Stempelglede.

The text #konfirmant is written on my computer and printed out. I have used my sewing machine and sewed the paper edges. They are also inked with Distress ink – reinkers.
