Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today ūüôā

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? ūüôā 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 ūüėČ

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

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!

Hello everyone,

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.

Happy crafting

Hello Sweeties,

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.

Family Street by Pascale B.

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.

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Yesterday some of us at the Maja Design creative team are guests designers at the¬†More Than Words¬†challenge blog! I totally love this months challenge because I love using frames and the word memories on my layouts as much as I can. For this layout I used the always amazing “Denim & Friends” collection. If you click on the pink words above it will take you to the link at their blog.

For the frames and the text I used some beautiful The Dusty Attic chippies which I colored with gesso, acrylic paints and rust paste. First I added a layer of clear gesso on my background sheet later on I added some lindy’s spray after that I added a script stemp and a stencil with some crackle paste. The flowers are by 49 and Market & Little Birdie.

I used some clear gesso on my background sheets after that I added some white spray that I moved from the left to the right with a brush. When that dried I took a script stamp with some grey ink and stamped it randomly on my background after that I added a stencil with paste.

 At the end I added some art stones and some of the clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.
Maja Design papers used: Sunbleached, Fashion bs & Stonewashed
                                               

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo
