Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today I would like to share a 12×12 layout with you using a almost 46 year old picture of my family on moms side. From left to right you see my mom, uncle Evert, my great grandmother Johanna, aunt Ellen, grandpa Arthur and grandma Anna. Oh how much I love those older pictures <3 For this layout I used two collections the pretty “I Wish”& “Vintage Spring Basics”! I took out the purple papers from the last one {to match the flowers I used} and the cream and brown papers from the I Wish collection.

I cut out a V part on top of my layout to use my dusty attic zipper chippie behind the tare then I added a couple of stamps by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco on my background. Then I used a couple of Lindy’s sprays {purple & brown} to give the papers more shine then I used the script stencil to finish my work. I also stamped around the edges of my layout with a stitch stamp.

The flowers I used have just the amount of shimmer which I like and are from 49 and Market. The chipboard pieces are just inked around the edges and then sprayed with three different colors and inked around the edges again. Then I took out my brush to add some purple mica powder to give it a little shimmer.

”Cherished Moments”

Layout

Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today to share my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”I Wish” collection. I really love these papers because although it is a Christmas collection can easily be used in non-Christmas pages. Take for example mine…

This time I made a soft romantic page with this beautiful photo, which as always found on Pinterest.  And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish to play in the Snow” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”I wish you a Happy new Year”  and the ”I wish for frosty mornings” papers. I also placed some pieces from an old book and made a fussy cutting on some vintage clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics ”No XVI” paper.

Close up 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I heat embosed the paste with ”Golden Angel Wings” Lindy’s powder to make the texture more obvious. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cowabunga Copper” and ”Cape Cod Coral” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the floral chipboards and the title with ”Byzantine Bronze”. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

Close up 4

As a final touch, I added some bronze microbeads and some Prima Memory Hardware – Glass Pearls.

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

See you again in two weeks!

I love working with  Maja Design Paper, it is the softest paper I have ever worked with, so it distresses beautifully. Being a paper layer, I find the Collections easy to work with, plus you can combine Collections, as they also blend beautifully…. This corner shows distressed, hand stitched, paper layers using corrugated paper in the layers…

c9d4d4b97c0a491a9518cf51559736fa

I primed the TH icicle, old wooden fence & chicken wire with clear gesso, the rest of the chipboard was primed with white gesso. I then painted all the chipboard,& the TH icicle, except for the chicken wire with clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried I painted the white pieces with LuminArt-Heavenly White H20, & for the brown I used Shimmerz -Chocolate & Diamonds…
