Hello Maja Friends,

August – my favorite Summer month, though it is the last before the dull and rainy days come. However I like it more than any month.
So that is why I enjoy looking through the pictures taken this summer and to create something that is associated with this particular month.

I combined several Summer collections for my Layout – Summertime, Summer Crush and Life in the Country.

I tried to keep the red and greens on my layout, using the paper layers, and added some embellishments of yellow and orange.

I also stretched the colors from the photo – soft blue and pumpkin and played with the acrylic paints .

I added some fussy cutting, though I mixed the greens and reds from almost the same patterned papers.

So it’s time to enjoy each and every day this Summer, hope you will follow my advice.

Products used:

Prima Marketing flowers, 2Crafty chipboard, Wycinanka Chipboard, Pentart acrylic Paints.

Look for cooling?!

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here today and I would like to share with you a layout for my August inspiration.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that photo. And, the beautiful papers from the ”Vintage Romance” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background I used the back side of the ”Ephemera Cards” paper and I made one layer on it with the ”Marriage Proposal” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

I used some Lindy’s Gang sprays to color my page and made some stamping here and there.

I choose some Dusty Attic chipboards and I used some Lindy’s embossing powders to heat emboss them.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and glitter and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

For this post I have a layout to share with a cutest little boy photo as a welcome gift:

For the colour palette I used the photo colours and added hues of blue. Therefore I chose my two favourite collections that fitted perfectly: Vintage Baby (of course) and Denim&Friends (it’s a boy, right?). I wanted the photo to remain the focal point and added only a few embellishments, including a die-cut and paper-pieced balloon:

…the name banner:

…the measurements:

To accent the lightness and delicacy of the photo I added cheesecloth, pom-poms and buttons:

I really like the way it turned out, sweet and light as is the precious new baby boy 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Sizzix, Memory Box, Craft Passion; chipboard: Scrapiniec; liquid pearls: Ranger; cheesecloth, buttons, pom-poms – my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hello Maja fans!

Mary here with you today and I have a new canvas to share for my July inspiration. A soft romantic canvas on the shades of blue and beige with lots of flowers, chipboards and IOD moulds.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that photo. And, the beautiful papers from the ”Crea Diem” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the ”Må du leva och växa” paper for the ”Crea Diem” collection. To start, I glued down the papers and I applied a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

I made some random stamping and then I used a Lindy’s Gang spray to color my page.

I colored the ”Doodads #6” and the ”Iron Garnish #6” chipboard with the Raven Black sparks acrylic paint.  The ”Delicate Frame #3” chipboard was also colored with the Magical Pond paint and the chipboard title with the White Pearl. The chipboards I used are from Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso diluted with some water.

That’s all for today, my friends!
