Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friend collection. I chose another photo montage I’ve made. Oh I completely forgot to tell you that we have been specially sponsored by Petaloo by FloraCraft this week.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. I mixed some Magical powder with 3D Glos gel to obtain a teal paste. I used this paste with a stencil to add a design on the background.

While the background was drying I colored some chipboard with different waxes. I cut some leaves in a watercolor paper that I painted with different inks.

I added some colors to the background that match the colors of the photomontage.

I cut a few paper to add under the photo and I glued some beautiful flowers from Petaloo along with the leaves I’ve die-cut.

To finish the layout I splattered some Glimmer Glam and I added some micro beads.

Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today :)

This month Maja Design joins creative forces with Petaloo, so for my today’s projects I included some of their beautiful flowers. So my first card is baby girl baptism card:

This is a twin card with the boy’s version I created following the beautiful palette of our September Moodboard challenge. It shares the same design and even stamp, of course coloured in girly pink, and features little pink Petaloo flowers:

Just like in the boy’s card, I coloured the image with Distress inks and embossed the sentiment with golden ep:

Hello friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share my newest Maja Designs creation. I have reverted back to a favourite collection this time around……. “Summertime”. With this beautiful collection I created a soft shabby layout full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers from Penny Lane Garden Collection. Petaloo are sponsoring Maja this month with their wonderful flowers…… thank you Petaloo !!

……………”Dream”………….

Oh how I loved this collection I think I have already mentioned that but it definitely is a favourite for me. As always my layout evolved slowly and didn’t finish off how I had imagined by I was quite happy with my end project. Below are all the papers I used from this collection. Some of the papers were gessoed to help with the effect I was looking for. I have used lots of media and paints to colour my papers and Dusty Attic chipboards.

My background papers was firstly primed with gesso and then I laid down a run of 3D Gloss gel and over that some very distressed muslin. This was my starting point and from here I layered my page with photo matting papers from the Summertime collection and then the sepia toned photo over the top.

Around my photo I used some beautiful Leafy Stem Dusty Attic chipboards. To the right of the photo I added in a Arch Window also from Dusty Attic. These were all dressed in Crackle Pastes, inks (Distress Inks) and Prima Art Alchemy Green Gold Acrylic Paint. You can see above that I also added in some Art Stones.

I did a little stamping with a Carte Postal stamp at the side of my photo and very randomly with a script stamp.

For my title I have used a very old rub on that I added to some transparency paper and cut out. I have the hugest collection of rub-ons that I just can’t get enough of!!

2017-09-12 Dream - Maja Design Creation - September 085

You can see above that I also added some Texture Crackle Paste to my background page to help bring the project together. Lastly I went over my whole project dry brushing with white gesso to help keep this very muted and to of course keep the photo the centre of attention. This photo is of my youngest daughter which was taken by a friend at a school excursion a few years back now when she was only in prep. How time flies she is now a highschooler!!

Well that is all from me today. I so hope that you enjoyed my project and I hope to see you back here again very soon. Stay tuned for more design team prettiness tomorrow.

Take care and happy crafting!!Tina-sign

Layout

Hello there sweeties!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you made with the gorgeous ”Sofiero” collection.

I used a pink paper that was matching perfectly with the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I wanted to show you the masculine gift envelope that I made using the Nyhavn collection. The gift envelopes become more and more popular today as sometimes it is much more appropriate to give the gift card, especially if its a person you don’t know well enough. So here is my version of one for a Man…

konv_muzhsk_maja_nyhavnwhen playing with this collections in a masculine style I always tend to add some black add ons, use lots of great shades and add sone kraft details.

Have a lovely weekend,
