Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout. I used both the Enjoying Outdoors and the Vintage Romance collections. I chose a photo of my grandfather and his brother.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a doily stencil and white gesso. When dry, I added a second design with another stencil and a metallic acrylic paint.

Then I cut the background into four pieces and glued them on another paper.

I cut a few papers from the 6×6 paper pack from both collections to add under the photo. I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper and colored them with Glimmer Glam and acrylic paint.

Hello everyone. Tiffany Solorio here.

I have a layout to share with you. IMG_9703

I created a mixed media layout using Vintage Summer Basics for my background paper. I used some sprays, light paste and some stamps to create a mixed media background. IMG_9704

I tore some papers from the Vintage summer and Vintage Romance papers

I used an image from Enjoying the outdoors paper for my focal point. I love how all these papers go so great together even though they are not from the same collection

I hope you are inspired to create your own layout.

Shows a Flower Cluster using 49 and Market Shimmer and Shine Flowers, & Dusty Attic Tropical Foliage. I altered some of the flower centers, using Prills-Express Yourself. The Chipboard was primed with clear gesso, then I applied a thick coat of clear crackle. Once the crackle dried, I painted the pieces, with Inklings Chocolate and Diamonds, Greener Pastures, & Honeymoon, for the purple used. I used LuminArt Oyster to tone down the colors…

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new mixed media layout featuring both the “Enjoying Outdoors” and the “I Wish” collections.

Orchid Beauty by Pascale B.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I prepared a paste with 3D Gloss Gel and the Rust and the Gold Opal Magic Mica Powders. I added a first design with this homemade paste and a stencil.

I prepared a second paste with the Rusty Red Art Alchemy and the Texture Powder: the result is a matte paste. I used a second stencil to add another design and let dry everything.

Orchid Beauty by Pascale B.

I painted the orchids with the Rusty Red paint and added more gold to them with the Gold Opal Magic. I die-cut some branches in a watercolor paper.

I colored the background with Moonshadow spray ink and Magicals to match the colors of the photo. I added also some random stamping.

I cut some papers from the I Wish collection to match and add under the photo. I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Sofiero paper collection. I chose a photo of my family: my grandmother, my father, my aunt and unfortunately I’m not sure who the other two are.

Family by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I cut a few papers from the Vintage Romance 6×6 pad that I glued on the background. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso.

Family by Pascale B.

I added a design with a stencil and different pastes: clear crackle, white crackle, and white stone. When dry, I added some color with Iris Potion Sparks paint that I watered down.

Family by Pascale B.

I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the vine with Raven Sparks and the leaves with Twinkling H2Os. Then I covered them with the Antique Brillance Amethyst Magic. I added some wax on the background too to add a vintage look.

Family by Pascale B.

I colored some flowers with a spray made of Primary Element and water. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with an Archival ink and with the Raven Sparks. I added a little bird house that I colored with the wax too.

To finish the layout I added some micro beads.
