Its Keren here and I created a layout for Maja Design using the new Denim & Friends collection. I used the “Worn Indigo” paper as the background for the layout as as well as the “No XXI” from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection which really go well together.
I used the blue toned papers from these collections as I wanted to mimic the colors in my picture.
I framed the photo with a chipboard frame which I colored in blue to match the layout and then I added matching blue flowers as well.
I incorporated some gold into the layout because I love the combination of blue and gold.
Here are the papers I used from both collection:

Hi everyone! Today I am back with an easel card. I have used one of my favorite collections for my card, the Denim & Friends collection. The card was made for a colour challenge at the Norwegian card magazine Ett Trykk, with the colours mint and turquoise. I tried to find some suitable Maja papers to fit the challenge.
The cute image is from Magnolia and the Denim Collection, and I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. The dies used are also from Magnolia.
The texts are from Ett Trykk.
Under you can view the card from the side. I made it for my friend’s 40th anniversary.
I have made the flowers myself. I have placed them both on the upper part of the card, and on the lower part. So when it is open, it looks like the flowers are together in a way.
Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.
I lay the flowers down on a newspaper, and spray them with water (the flower dies are from Magnolia).
Then I curl them up, and let them to dry.
When they are dry, I curl them up again, and place them together with some Wild Orchid Crafts stamens in the middle. Here comes a list of papers used:

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose a photomontage I made inspired by the painting ” Evening Falls ” by Magritte.
I primed the background with clear gesso. Then, I added some stamping with two inks and stamps. Next, I added a design with a clear crackle paste and a stencil.
While the crackle paste was drying, I colored some chipboards with different inks. I colored the flowers with a silver ink.
Next, I colored the background with different inks.
I printed the title on a photo paper and I used the same inks to alter it. Then I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.
To finish the layout, I added some glass glitter and microbeads.

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose to work with a photo of a carrelet: a typical fishing cabin that can be found in the Gironde’s estuary.
I painted the back of a stencil with different acrylic paints. When happy with the result, I put the stencil on the background and I added immediately some heavy gesso through it. The paint showed through the heavy gesso.
While the background was drying, I colored some moss with a brown ink and some seeds with different acrilyc paints.
I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored some of them with a brown ink and the others with the same acrylic paints I used on the background.
I cut a piece of burlap and a paper to add under the photo. And I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.
To finish the layout, I added some Art stone that I colored with a grey ink.

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today
Today I have a layout to share featuring one of my most favourite collections, Denim & Friends. It is so great for masculine projects, and was just perfect for the photos of my younger son being so happy and proud about wearing the same T-shirt as his daddy
I first layered blue papers in the background to make a nice clear contrest against the woodboard paperthat matched the background of the photos. I distressed all the edges.
I addded the title made of various stickers and also used chipboard stars to mat and mount the photos a bit:
I added various metal embellishments:
…but also some flowers and druzy stones: who says boys don’t like a little bling? 😉 But not to make it too sweet I splashed some black ink here and there as the finishing touch:
Here’s the list of the supplies I used:
