Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the I Wish collection even if we are not in winter. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip in Prague of the “Horse” from David Černý: a statue of St Wenceslas riding his dead horse upside-down.

I primed the background with clear gesso. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste which I let dry naturally.

In the meantime, I die cut a few leaves on a watercolor paper and I colored them with differents Twinkling H2Os. I sprayed some flowers with a gold shimmer.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued the flowers and leaves.

Hello, I'm Pascale B. from France. Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring Camilla her beautiful girls on a 12 by 12 layout using the two Maja Design collections “I Wish” & “Summertime” I really love to combine those two. I took the brown out of the first collection and the blues from the second to compliment their pretty dresses. This layout has some playful circles {which would totally fit with the sweet girls on the picture} on them and some lovely flowers by Petaloo and My Little Birdy, I also added some new Dusty Attic chipboard designs.

I had a lot of fun using a bunch of mixed media products on my layout like sprays, stamps especially the stamps by Gabrielle Pollacco from 49 and Market. Don’t you just love this picture?? Camilla you have such lovely girls kind of jealous with a teenager boy in my household lol….

I also used a new stencil by Dusty Attic to compliment my layout and some blue spray by Lindy’s and prills…all the stitch parts are with a sewing machine but the stitches on the picture are by hand.

Hello, Rachelle here with my last LO, until October. I take the summer months off, to work or play, in our garden. In about 3 weeks, I should be able to start planting, plus I will be a grandmother, first grandchild, so it is going to be another, great, busy summer…..

My inspiration of the paper layers, came from the boat. I used the 2 sheets of the Maja papers, distressed the edges & used the corrugated paper in the layers. I rubbed in some of the pebbles metallic chalk, to deepen the color of the smell of coffee sheet. The corrugated paper was painted with the Teal Silk, then toned down with the Shimmerz Butter Cream….

I died the cheese cloth with the Tattered Angel- Aquamarine & used it in the flower clusters. In this cluster I used the 49 and Market Rustic Blooms, DA Seagrass, seashells, cloth covered wire

I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, & only used the clear crackle on the seagulls. For the cooper I rubbed on & inked the edges of the chipboard, with the bark- inkpad, then painted it with the iridescent copper. For the teal, I used the Teal Silk & toned it down with the Shimmerz- butter cream. Once the crackle dried on the seagulls, I painted them with white gesso, then the iridescent gold silk….

I cut the I wish sheet in three pieces, trimmed off a bit, to see the under layer. I distressed the edges & cross stitched these pieces together….

I glued the photo onto a piece a heavy cardstock, then onto the burlap trim & corrugated paper. I framed it with the DA String frame, that I wrapped around with the cloth covered wire & jump rings.

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.

Photo: Comfreak

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.
