Hello creative friends!

Today I want to explain how you can create a vintage romance layout with an altered 3D frame as your central focal point.

I create a very simple layout because the paper alone gives all the magic effect.

I think is one of my fav in this collection ‘Enjoying Outdoors’ – ‘Singing in the rain’.

I love the beautiful edge design and the girl on the right side and I like people who smile when it’s raining.

Times are not always easy, but I always try to make the most of it.

Take a break from the hectic everyday life and relax.

I started by creating an altered frame for my photo.

Want to see how I made this? Here I have some photos from the making.

Snapguide How to an Altered 3D Frame

Now to the background, first I primed with clear gesso, then I used Distress ink ‘Seedless preserves’ on a stencil, it’s the same colour how you can find on this paper sheet.

Next, I added a Glimmer Mist Spray ‘Kiwi’ from Tattered Angels

to the background arround the area of the photo.

then I use two die cuts to add more dimension

(Wordlet ‘Do what you love’ and ‘Girl under umbrella’)

with papers from ‘Vintage Romance’.

Afterwards I choose some embellishments to decorate this romance layout,

for instance from Prima Marketing (garden gates, butterfly), flowers, lace, fabric leftovers,

water drops, little resin flowers.

I builded a small cluster on the right side under the photo.

suitable to the titel ‘singing in the rain’ I added some pearl drops and another umbrella from a die cut, as well as a clockface

from the ‘No. XVI’ (Vintage Autumn Basics) above with a glass cabochon.

The ‘Welcome’ sign is a photo cutout with a underlaid folder music paper sheet.

3D look

This project was so much fun to create and I love the 3D effect that you can build up.

Questions??? you’re welcome :-)!

I hope my project can give you some inspiration for your work with Maja Design papers.

What is your favourite paper sheet??

Have a beautiful day!

Hello dears and welcome to the blog!

Today, I would like to share with you my inspiration for April. This time I have something a little bit different from my comfort zone. I made two cards with papers from the ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection along with lots of flowers and laces.

For the background I choose the ”Singing in the rain” paper and I used it on both cards. I made two layers on the first one with the ”The Great Nature” and the ”Woodlands” papers. I added color with the Edelweiss Moss Green Lindy’s Gang spray. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Fairy Wings”.

I have also made two layers on the second one with the ”Gardening” and the ”Time for reflection” papers. I used the Open Arms Amethyst Lindy’s Gang spray to add some color. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Iris Potion”. The chipboards are Dusty Attic and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

When everything was glued down, I added some glass beads and sprinkled a little glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Welcome to this lovely blog today, I am back after being sick with a nasty flue for more then three weeks and I am dreaming to have some warmer weather so for today I made a a summer layout with one of Camilla her daughters on their vacation to Italy last summer. For this layout I used this months mood board colors with the gorgeous “Enjoying outdoors” collection. I also used some of the fancy clocks from the clock sheet from the “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection through out my layout.

I just love the way Camilla takes her pictures most of the time when her girls don’t see it. The chipboards I used are treated with gesso, rust effect paste military set and antique brilliance amethyst magic both by finnabair. All the flowers are by 49 and Market. I got the idea of using my chipboards like this by our very own Tina {thank you for your amazing talent xox}

I used some of the amazing new background 49 and Market stamps 1787 & Flowery Tile designed by our very own Pascale on the Flourishing bs sheet. they I took out my fishnet stencil by Dusty Attic to add on several places on my layout. Underneath my picture & flowers clusters I added some cheese cloth.

After I treated my background I added three horizontal papers strips from the picking flowers sheet and placed the on the top, bottom and just above the bottom to get a flow in my design. And at the end I added some 3d balls and some shells to finish this layout. Did you see the new mood board this Tuesday? If not let me show you again my layout was based on this mood board we sure hope you will play along too…..I for sure can not wait to see your work. <3

Maja Design papers used: Enjoying outdoors collection: Flourishing bs, Picking flowers bs, Having tea in the sun and from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection: no.XVI

    

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here.

Love xoxo

Hello Maja Friends, it’s Elena here to share several cards I made playing with the purple hues.

Lilac_Cards_Maja_Design_Elena

Each time the leaves left the trees, and the landscape is dull and grey around, I start to look for some bright colors, and I’ve noticed each November I turn to lilac and purple hues.

Lilac_Cards_Maja_Design_Elena1

For my cards I used Enjoying Outdoors collection, so rich and so beautiful for the mature Autumn Season.

I made a lot f die cutting and used the pearlescent gold and white cardstock for my die cuts

They pop up on the purple background, you can notice

However I added the white and pale pink flowers, I wanted my cards to be feminine and soft

I made 3 more cards using the other one sketch

But actually I used the same die shapes for my paper layering

I like adding the pearls as the finish touch to my frames
