Hi Everyone,

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:

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

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:

Hello Sweeties,

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.

Hello Sweeties,

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.

Carrelet by Pascale B.

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:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Blue Fern Studios, Petaloo; stickers: Prima, American Crafts; chipboard: Latarnia Morska; clockface and game spinner: Tim Holtz; bling, gears: my stash.

 

I really like the way the layout turned out – what do you think?

See you later!
