Hello Maja Fans.

Lenet here today,As we look outside in nature we can see Spring is just around the corner.  The early snowdrops are in bloom and the crocus and

grape hyacinth are showing so won”t be long to be there too.

I even saw some some Daffodils in full bloom . At the shops and markets are selling the first tulips, for me that is the real sign that it will be spring soon.

So I made you this lay out using some delicate flowers and green buds ready to burst.

Here a close up, the little dark pink flowers are real dried flowers I saved from a bouquet my Husband gave me for our 25th anniversary.

so I got flowers and craft supplies in one.

For this layout I used  the Vintage Summer Basic collection.  Flowers from 49 and market and from my stash and cheesecloth .

Sentimenst are from Tim Holz small talk. the doilys are made with a summer feelings die from Studio Light.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like what I made for you.

Hello dear Maja friends!

Fall is knocking on our door and this is the most beautiful time for us after this most dryness and heat to go into the forest and enjoy the nature.

I always like to remember our childhood

where we used to play in the woods and look for adventures.

I used some beautiful vintage papers from the ‘Vintage Summer Basic’ collection,

here you can find a lot of various paper sheets in delicate colours, always suitable for a memory layout.

some details

Have you seen our awesome September Moodboard?

These wonderful autumn colours don’t only fit into this season,

they can also inspire to create a vintage project.

Thanks for your visit!

 

Happy crafting!

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout with a video tutorial to share with you. As always I found my photo on Pinterest and this one inspired me to create a soft romantic page in green, white and brown tones.

But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer. To create my page I used Maja Design papers from the gorgeous ”Vintage Summer Basics” collection along with some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards and beautiful 49 and Market flowers.

 

You can watch all the procedure here…

 

The paper I used is the ”1921” and I started by applying a coat of clear gesso. Then, I created texture with Finnabair paper texture paste and the Dusty Attic Damask #2 Stencil. When the paste dried, I randomly stamped using 49 and Market stamp sets. I added color with the Lindy’s Gang ”Greased Lightnin’ Green” spray.

Next, I used different mixed media techniques to treat the Dusty Attic chipboards which you can watch on the video tutorial.

Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers. At last, I added the Dusty Attic title word and finished it up with art stones, glass beads and glitter.

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Until next time happy crafting!

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and today I bring you this lay out called vintage soul.

I love  old vintage things, and the papers of Maja design are just perfect for vintage and shabby chic crafting.

Here is the layout I made for your inspiration, I hope you like it.

 

For this layout I used Vintage summer basics 1921 as the background and some leftovers from other papers for the matting of the picture.

I used the patina effect pastes art extravagance from prima marketing to distress the chippies from Dusty attic.

Some old lace and colored cheesecloth to tuck between the layers.  As a finishing touch some flowers from 49 and Market.

Hope you like what I made for you, thank you for visiting and  don’t forget to check in later to take a look at what the other Maja girls made for you .

Hello Maja fans!

Today, I would like to share a new layout made for my July inspiration using papers from the gorgeous ”Vintage Summer Basics” collection. As usual, I’ve also used 49 and Market flowers, Dusty Attic chipboard and Finnabair moulds to embellish my page and achieve a romantic and elegant feeling.

As always, I found my photo on Pinterest and before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the ”Minnen” paper and made several layers behide my photo with the cards from the back side of the same paper. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with the Finnabair Frosty Pearl icing paste and a stencil. When the paste dried, I used the Lindy’s Gang Sea Grass Green spray to add color.

Next, I heat embossed the chipboards with the Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing enamel.

Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers.

Papers used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Until next time happy crafting!
