Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basic collection. I chose a photo of the Daum Venus aux Tiroirs by Salvador Dali.
I stamped here and there with a grey ink before priming the background with clear gesso. I added also a very thin layer of white gesso to tone down the blue.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and Paper texture paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkle two embossing powders: one pearl, the other silver that I heat set.
Then, I added some colors: black ink, white ink, and steel mica to add some contrast.
While the inks were drying, I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored with a blue ink and embossed the big ones. I covered the other ones with a silver foil. I colored some flowers in blue.
I cut some papers in the Home for Holidays collection to add under the photo. Before gluing all the embellishments, I stamped some text here and there with a black ink.
To finish the layout, I added silver microbeads and glitters.

A very big welcome my Maja Design friends.
Tina Ollett here with you today to share a project created recently showcasing patterned papers from three gorgeous collections of Maja Designs.
It is titled “My Sunshine” and was inspired by a photo taken down at Redcliffe whilst we were making a visit to see some friends for coffee and milkshakes.
This project was originally going to be very shabby chic until I come across this photo with the rustic rocks that my daughter was sitting upon for the photo. Once I spyed these, the project automatically changed up to a rustic grungy kind of project which I totally miss doing.
Monochromes Shades of Denim – Off White
Vintage Summer Basics – 1915
Vintage Romance – Deep Love bs
I started my project off by layering papers from the Vintage Summer Basics (1915) and Vintage Romances “Deep Love” bs . I primed my background to fix it. Dusty Attic Texture paste was used throught the Threaded Bead Stencil to create a little texture going across my page following the stripes from the papers that I used.
I used some Rust Paste over my chipboards along with acrylic paints and art stones.
I love how the large seashell as seen above here turned out. It was dressed similarly to the leaves but less emphasis on the browns. They were placed on lastly to highlight the blue and orange tints.
I also coloured some of my pretty florals with acrylic paints as you can see above .
And a yummy view of the Swirly Frame that I used on this project.
Thank you for making the visit here today.
Until next time take care and happy crafting.

Good morning, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog 🙂
Today I have a layout to share, featuring a photo of my younger son with his signature look, that is smiling widely 🙂
Since the moment he was born he was a very joyful child, always positive and ready to play. When I look through our family album, on almost all photos he looks like this:
Of course, there are moments of a worse mood, especially now that he is in his early teens, but if I were to characterise him in one word, that would be “smiley” 🙂 And I wanted to document this in my layout.
For my page I used one of our older Christmas collections, I Wish (I always use Christmas papers for non-holiday projects, usually the papers are too beautiful to use them once a year! 🙂 ) The design is very simple: just a couple of banners, some buttons and the title made of chipboard sticker alphabet:
I also added some stamping in the background:
In the flwoer cluster I put a clay face that looks very similar to my boy’s smile 🙂
I do hope my son would always have a reason to smile!
And here’s the list of my supplies:

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basics. I worked with a photo I’ve taken during an event at the Château de l’Islette (Loire Valley, France).
Next, I added a second design with a second stencil and paper paste. While the paper paste was still wet I sprinkled two embossing powders that I heated set.
I die cut different leaves in a vellum paper and in a watercolor paper. I embossed them with the same powders.
I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments: some sisal, a few flowers whose hearts I’ve changed, some paper clay elements, the leaves and some crystals.
To finish the layout I stamped again with a text stamp.

Hello Maja Friends,
it’s the first day of Summer, I have been waited for it for so long. and Now it’s here and I feel so happy
And today I’ve got to share a very special scrapbook page I made for a newborn babygirl
The mother of the baby is my friend and she asked me to create something, where she could keep the photos ( a few) and some notes for her little princess, so the journalling cards
I made several flaps to keep the photos on one page
Her mother likes the ballet theme, so I added the beaded ballerina into the frame. I added some torn paper layers and made die cutting and punching on the paper too.
I mixed 2 paper collections _ Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Spring Basics, and I like the final result.
