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!

 

Hydrangea love.

Hello sweet Maja fans Lenet here and today I bring you this Layout with lots of hydrangea.

I really love hydrangea, I have a big pink one in my backyard and planted a white one as well, hope it will grow very big too.

In my frontyard I have a white one with big balls of tiny white flowers.

I own a lot of hydrangea flowers from prima marketing and wanted to really start using them so I decided to make this lay out filled with hydrangea.

I also wanted to use some real nature thing in it so I went out to my garden and gathered some old little branches and plants that i had put aside for the birds to use building their nests, sorry birdies but I will refill soon. It’s fun to use natural things  like this on your layout so I might go use it more often.

I made some tears on the edges of the toplayer, distressed them so you can see the paper underneath and made stitches by hand on each side of it.

I also tucked some pink dried baby’s breath between the flowers, I love this delicate little flower .

I always keep and dry them when I get those in a bouquet

For this layout I used the  vintage summer basics collection.

Thank you for visiting ,I hope you like my layout this time and I hope I gave you some inspiration.

Make shure to come back to take a look at the work the other Maja Girls made for you.
