Hello dear friends!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout with a video tutorial to share with you. I made it for my January inspiration using papers from the gorgeous ”Denim & Friends” colection and some of my favorite chipboards which I placed around a beautiful photo I found on Pinterest.

When I saw it I knew I had to scrap it and the Maja Design papers along with The Dusty Attic chipboards were just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

 

You can watch all the procedure here…

 

And here are some close ups…

I choose for my page the ”Worn Indigo” paper from the Maja Design ”Denim & Friends” collection. I started by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background and then I created texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

Made some stamping here and there and used a Lindy’s Gang spray to add color.

Next, I painted all the Dusty Attic chipboards with Finnabair acrylic paints.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white acrylic ink.

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I think grandparents are second important people in a child’s life, right after parents. In Poland it is common that retired grandparents take care of their grandchildren when the parents are at work. And so they play a very important role in kids’ life, helping to raise them and spending a lot of time with them. And I think grandparents so much deserve a special celebration! And so in January we celebrate Grandmother’s Day on the 21st and Grandfather’s Day on the 22nd. For that occasion I made two cards:

I used the Denim & Friends collection for both cards. For the card for grandma I used the turqouise hues of the collection, using also some Monochromes sheets.

I used a humorous carved chipboard pieces for my cards, and I decorated them adding a bit of colour and some glitter. Then I put each piece against a background of layered papers:

I also added a flower cluster and some pearl brads to the grandma’s card:

In the card for grandpa, I opted for the brown-navy blue palette:

I added screw-like brads and a star charm tied on plaid-patterned ribbon:

I think grandparents would appreciate hand-made cards from their grandchildren more than anything money can buy 🙂

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade; chipboard pieces: Egocraft; brads: Craftmania, Rayher; dies: Rosy Owl, Spellinders; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Lemoncraft; crystal gems: Prima; ribbon: my stash.

And that is all for today – see you soon!

These are treasured memories

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

So nice of you to visit the Maja Design blog today, I am back again posting on this lovely blog, it’s been a while since my last post. Hope you did not miss me too much ;-). For today I have a layout to share that I made for a nice lady who contacted me because she wanted to give her parents a present for their 50th year wedding anniversary. I did replace the pictures because she did not wanted them online….on the pictures you see my parents in law.

I took the dark blues and soft yellow tones from both collections because I think that is a lovely combination. The chipboard I used are off course The Dusty Attic & the flowers are by 49 and Market. On the background I used several stencils by different companies. Let’s have a closer look.

Welcome friends!

I hope you all had a good start in the new year 2019!

I wish you health, happiness and joy and have a lot of fun with creating new ideas and projects.

I’m looking forward to inspire you for another year with all the amazing ‘old’ and new paper collections from Maja Design.

I was inspired to make a layout in a wintery mood and used a background paper  from the ‘I wish’ collection.

The delicate brown shades were absolutely right for an mixed media layout in nature style

which shows a litte girl in a winter forrest that has a lot of fun in the snow.

‘I wish for frosty mornings’

‘Wood’

Explore & Adore –  I think a very good motto for our new creative year, right?!

 Happy New Year!
