Hello Maja friends!

When we were hiking in the autumn forest, we discovered a new house for our dog.  

Filou had to examine it closely and it seems as if it meets his requirements 😉 

Back at home, he has come to love his soft dog basket and of course our sofa again,

 because it’s much more comfortable as he whispered to me.

 

That was my inspiration for this new autumn layout in mixed media natural style.

 

I have combined two of our beautiful autumn collections at Maja Design ‘Enjoying Outdoors’ and ‘Walking in the forest’.

The delicately patterned green background was ideally suited

 to embellish it with stamps, stencils and spray paints.  

The central element is a cutout from the paper sheet ‘Maple’ in the shape of an autumn leaf, 

which somehow looks like an acorn.

some details

some typical forest elements in autumn colours – a chipboard,

wooden shapes, dried tree bark and lichen

two trees made with modelling paste and silicone mould, ‘Fall foliage’ and branches with cutting dies

dried acorns shells and fern leaves also made with white modeling paste

 the cutout fall leave where the edges finished with ‘Walnut Stain’ ink pad and Spray colour

Thanks for your visit!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello and welcome Maja Design friends.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my next project with you.

This has been titled “Happiness blooms from within……”

I have kept my project for today very simple and very shabby. I did lots of layering of the beautiful papers from may all time favourite collection Vintage Romance. The papers from this collection are listed below for you.

Walk with me – Vintage Romance

Walk with me bs – Vintage Romance

When I saw you bs – Vintage Romance

I have also added in a sheet of the gorgeous Lavendar Rose to compliment my layout from the Monochromes shades of Celebration. This was used to mat my photo and some of the other layers to help them pop a little. It is a very stunning colour.

I decided to go with a black and white photo to help keep the layout light. I also decided to use some cute paper clay moulds.

And as always with my layouts I have added layers of Dusty Attic chipboards to my layers of Maja Design papers. I have used Distress Inks to colour my chipboards along with splashes of gesso to lighten sections of the boards.

I have added in lots of beautiful 49andMarket flowers. These too have been added in layers amongst the papers and chipboards.

Here you can see all the layers of the torn Maja Design papers.

Here you can see I have added in lines of gorgeous lace. This has been cut to sit back to back and over the top of each other and also over the layers of my torn papers. I added in sections of white muslin that has been distressed.

Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed my post today. Until next time take care and happy crafting.

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my September inspiration.

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

As my main paper I used the ”Stonewashed” and I made some layers behide my photo with the ”Paisley”, the ”Leather” and both sides of the ”Summer Shirt” papers. 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.

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

I heat embossed the Dusty Attic chipboards with Stampendous embossing enamels and then I randomly rubbed some wax to highlight them a little bit more.

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

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello Maja Fans,

today I’ve a got a page to share that I made as a part of big Baby Album I am working on for my friend.

I love creating Baby projects and each time I challenge myself with using non-baby papers, in this case I mixed the papers from mostly Vintage Spring Basics  collection

I kept on building the layers as one of my favorite technique and added the resin angel as a focal point.

I also created the heart embellishment using the distressed paper layers and sew them in the middle

I made some extra flaps to fill in with the photos later and used the silhouette from die cutting.

Watercoloring is what I am keen on at the moment, so I added some of them to the background and to the circle of the clock.

Stay tuned for more pages from my big Baby Album for my freind.

Products used:

Prima Marketing flowers and resin, Watercolors;

Chipboard and lace

Welcome friends!

Kerstin is back and I want to share with you my latest mixed media layout.

Fall is knocking on your door, finally, you feel like saying, after months of heat and drought.

At the begin of September, the summer heat gradually gives way to cooler autumn time,

which cobers the landscape in spectacular wonderful colours.

Time to walk in the woods and rustle through the foliage.

 

 I used a background paper ‘Autumn in the air’ from the collection  ‘Walking in the forest’. I love this wonderful golden autumn colours with delicate leaves motifs, Simply adorable!!

 In addition I used some Sizzix dies, flowers and embellishments from 49 and Market, wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts and a lace and frame which was made with silicone moulds.

 Have a wonderful time!
