Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the I Wish collection even if we are not in winter. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip in Prague of the “Horse” from David Černý: a statue of St Wenceslas riding his dead horse upside-down.
I primed the background with clear gesso. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste which I let dry naturally.
In the meantime, I die cut a few leaves on a watercolor paper and I colored them with differents Twinkling H2Os. I sprayed some flowers with a gold shimmer.
Next, I colored the design area with different Twinkling H2Os
I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued the flowers and leaves.
I added some random stamping. To finish the layout, I added some mica flakes and glass glitters.

Hello my dear friends! Happy Sunday to all!
It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout made with papers from two of my favourite collections, the ”Sofiero” and the ”Monochromes – shades of Sofiero”.
A soft romantic layout in blue and gold tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
I used for my background the ”The magnificent Flowerstreet” paper from the ”Sofiero” collection and I made a die cut doily with the ”White/Sand” paper from the ”Monochromes – shades of Sofiero”.
I primed my background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Hydrangea Blue”.
I heat embossed the ”Ada’s Flourishes” 2Crafty chipboard with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. The title was also embossed with the ”Madonna Rabe Blue” powder. The title chipboards I used are 13arts and all the flowers and embellishments are Prima Marketing.
To finish, I added some copper micro beads with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout with the Vintage Romance. I chose a photo I’ve taken during my trip in Prague of the special statue designed by Eva Blahová: the dress is a knitting.
As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a stamp. I embossed the stamp image with a sticky powder to adhere some gold foil.
I added a second design with a stencil and clear crackle paste. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.
While the crackle paste was drying I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored them with some Twinkling H2O and embossed them.
I cut some papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments: flowers, leaves, and some doily’s scraps.
When done, I colored the background with bright colors to remind the photo.
I finished the layout with mica flakes and micro beads.

Hello and welcome Maja followers!
Tina Ollett with you here today to share my next Design Team creation. Last time I was here I shared something a little rustic /country, so this time around I have decided on something Shabby Chic to showcase this gorgeous photo of my two girls. And what better collections to use to create this with, but the ever gorgeous
Vintage Spring Basics and the Vintage Summer Basics.
Just perfect to create that pretty shabby page.
This I have titled “Adore”………
I used the Vintage Spring Basics 7th of May as my background page but I firstly cut a photo mat from the centre to save on paper. I then layered torn Vintage Summer Basics 1922 and the Vintage Springs Basics 4th of May over this. When creating shabby layouts I like to leave large areas of the white paper core to give it an complete border and it also saves on sanding or inking.
Here you can see the layered torn papers and above that the photo mats with distressed and sanded edges.
I have layered over the top of the background page two sections of lace. I have run a piece of seam binding through the top piece of the lace and I tied it in a bow at the right side of the photo where it hangs to hold the chipboard title “Adore”. This chipboard piece was simply dressed in gesso and Liquid Pearls was swiped across and around the edges to highlight the titled.
I love to create flower clusters, and this one was no exception. I used leftovers from many of my flower baskets that sit under my desk. They were all whitewashed with gesso to keep in with the shabby chic design. To complete the layout I added in some Kaisercraft paper leaves, a Dusty Attic frame which was dressed in Platinum Liquid Pearls and cut into several pieces and also a little cheesecloth.
Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed popping by. Until next time, take care and happy crafting.
