Hello everyone!

Kerstin is back with a vintage layout. I used a very old photo from my ancestors, a beautiful memory for our family. 

 

The latest amazing Maja Design Collection ‘Celebrate’ http://majadesign.nu/products/celebration/
was very suitable to my photo to this very special day so many years ago.

 

 It’s always a good idea to create with frames on scrapbooking layout.

I added a printed chipboard frame on the lower right side with a very wise saying in it.

The second frame around the photo was made with cutting dies and old crafty paper in weathered look.

 some details
fussy cutting flowers from paper sheet ‘You’re invited’ and flowers with
Sizzix Thinlits die ‘Small tattered flowers’ from the papper sheet ‘Glamour bs’
a frame made with craft paper, that’s leftovers from a cutting die
a printed chipboard frame with a wise saying on transparent foil from Scrap FX
Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

Hello dear friends!

Mary here with you sharing my latest layout for my May inspiration. This time I made a colorful page with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments and I choose a dark paper to combine them. I don’t really remenber if I have already told how much I love that combination. The contrast is just amazing!

 

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that beautiful photo. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background I used the ”Ephemera” paper on the back side. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and I applied a small amount of white gesso behinde my combosition. When it was dried, I added some texture with paper texture paste and a stencil.

I made some stamping here and there and then I heat embossed the patterns with the ”Venus Violet Blue” and the ”Sunset Yellow Orange” Lindy’s Gang embossing powders. Continued by coloring my page with the ”Tea Pot Purple” and the ”Magnolia Magenta Gold” Lindy’s sprays.

I painted the ”Small Scroll #2” flourish chipboard with the Sparks ”Iris Potion” acrylic paint.  The ”Clockworks Small” chipboard was also painted with the metallique ”Steampunk Copper” paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello sweet Maja Friends

I think like many of you I always loved Alice in wonderland.

I especially love the Alice movies Tim Burton made , the costumes,  the art,  make up ..everything.

Recently I rediscovered scrapping  at 6 x12inch papers . And I must say it’s really fun to scrap this size .

So one and one makes two and I decided to make a Tim Burton Alice serie in this half size and here you have the first one.

Alice.

i printed a queen of hearts I found on pinterest and tucked it behind Alice her picture like she is peaking around the corner , nosy as she is.

 

I added a bunch of roses from wild orchid craft

And a pocket watch, from the white Rabbit.

I used papers of the celebration collection , the strips with text are from Tim Holtz

Hello friends!

Soon is Mother’s Day and I want to give a little attention to my mother. I created a mixed media frame in a delicate shabby chic look.

 

I used a simply frame as basic. Firstly I made some ornaments with the help of moulds and air drying modeling clay.

These were glued to the frame with heavy gel medium, I added some metallic sticker too.

Then I painted everything over with Chalky Finish ‘Vintage’ paint from DecoArt.

Now put some heavy white gesso over the embellishments to bring out the texture and details on the frame.

some details

I used paper sheet ‘Birthday’ as background and the beautiful lady from ‘Emphemera’ 12 x 12

little lady was a cut out from the 6 x 6 paper back

I’ve always loved the combination of these colours and the beautiful ‘Celebration’ paper is probably my favourite in the stash.

Cut to fit and complemented with a metal frame from Prima and some blooms, the new frame in altered art was finished.

Suitable to this frame I made two wooden handpainted candle holds with her favourite flowers

and a irish crochet doily.

Thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful time!

 

With all my heart…

Hi everyone! Here I am with a card using the Celebration Collection. This time I have mixed the pink and blue papers from this wonderful collection.

The shape of the card is cut out with a GoKreate die. Then I have made it an easel card. I have cut out a heart from Spellbinder dies, and placed it all with flowers.

The text from Stempelglede says: You are special.

I made some poststamps from a lovely flower papers, with a DooHickey die from Magnolia. The postmark stamp is from Stempelglede.

The image is from Magnolia. I have coloured her with Distress Ink, re-inkers. The blue is Weathered Wood, and the pink is Victorian Velvet. I have used the colour Hickery Smoke to make the darker places, and shadows. I think she is beautiful with flowers in her hair. The text on the tags are from Stempelglede.

This card was also in the February issue of Ett Trykk. As a presentation card of my self, and my style of cardmaking. Here comes a list of the papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,
