Welcome Maja friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout to a natural garden theme.

I love this time in my garden when the lavender is in bloom and it’s a beautiful characteristic

 because the dried lavender flowers keep their scent for an extremely long time.

They are ideal for decoration, potpourris and to fill sachets.

  

 I used the paper sheet ‘Lace’ from the – Denim & Girls – paper collection as background and some cut outs from Vintage Spring Basics collection.  Matching the nature theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace & jute, sisal, dried & artificial lavender flowers and branches to the mixed media layout.

The background was created with some diluted acrylic paints and some Lavinia stamps.

Wish you a good time!

A frame card

Hi everyone! I am back with a frame card I have made. I hope you all are fine<3

I have used papers from both collections above for this card. The frame is coverd with a sheet from Denim & Friends, but the rest I have used are from the Little Street Cafe Collection.

I wanted to capture this sweet Tilda out walking outside late at night. It is a starry and bright sky, and there are some fireworks as she walkes along the lane.

Therefore I found this lovely blue spotted paper from Denim & Friends, for the back. And it fittet so nicely with the Little Street Papers, which I have used to decorate a whole scene.

All the cut outs are made with dies from Magnolia.

White spots here and there are made with white Gesso. It gives the card a touch of shabby look.

The flowers are also made with Maja papers. Behind them I have put some Sissal gras.

The image is painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. Soft colours to match the papers.

The depth of the card/frame is one cm. And I have taken some photos of it laying down, to give you a better view of it.

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog.

With love,

A true gentlemen

Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout in vintage grunge style.

It’s a scrapbook page for a boy with one of my favourite collections ‘Denim & Friends’.

I used the paper sheet ‘Worn Indigo’ as background, a fantastic colour shade it looks like original Blue Jeans

and some leftovers from the paper sheets ‘Jeans and Shirt’ and ‘Sunbleached’.

I love to create in vintage style and a grunge look is perfect for a masculine layout.

I want a weathered look and so I used a white crackle paint applied with a spatula for the edge.

Together with some stamps a great effect.

 the borders from the paper sheets are always a wonderful addition, I use them very often
an awesome MDF shape in steampunk style from Calico Craft Parts
together with a lightbulb from Prima Marketing

Hello Maja Friends.

 

This year we enjoy the Spring during this so-called Winter, and I am ready to start creating floral and leafy projects, since there is no snow for the past 2 months.

However I decided to play with Denim & Friends collection, that I always choose when crafting something “for Him” projects

I have already made so many cards with those pictures and papers, however I still find the new ways to make something a bit different.

and what I like most of all – it is the sneakers theme.

 

The plaid is always my favorite form Maja Patterned papers

 

and I still find exciting to create a couple of cards at one time. It gives you more chances to experiment, even if one of the cards is not a perfection.

Hello dear creative friends!

I love it to let me inspire from the nature and the seasons with all what this time make me very special for me.

In the autumn time we were often in the forest and collected mushrooms, surprisingly there were even some.

I love this autumn mood in the forest, everything is wrapped in a special light, slightly veiled, mysterious and on particularly beautiful days you can also see the hot-air balloons in the sky, for which our dog always has great respect, because they make such strange noises for him.

Maybe you are still in autumn rather than winter mood,

 then let yourself be inspired by the Maja Design autumn collections.

I used some papers from the ‘Walking in the forest’, I love this beautiful warm colours with natural autumn motifs such like foliage, mushrooms, berries …and a perfect addition for me the paper sheet ‘Wood’ from ‘Denim and Friends’.
