Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my November inspiration using gorgeous Maja Design papers, Dusty Attic chipboard and 49 and Market flowers.

And again I found on Pinterest a photo that inspired me to create that romantic layout in red and green tones. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

The paper I used is the ”Walk With Me” from the Vintage Romance collection and I started by applying a coat of clear gesso. Then, I created texture with Finnabair icing paste in White Gold and a stencil. When the paste dried, I randomly stamped using 49 and Market stamp sets. I added color with the Lindy’s Gang ”Edelweiss Moss Green” and ”Greased Lightnin’ Green” sprays.

Next, I painted the ”Flower Buds #2” with Finnabair Royal Red and Golden Moss acrylic paints. Continued with the ”Ornate Motifs #2” and the title which were also painted with the Golden Moss paint and then some wax in Green Brocade was randomly rubbed on them. And lastly, I used the Finnabair Sparks paint in Raven Black to color the ”Fancy Label” chipboard.

I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market  flowers from the ”Blossom Blends, Country & Cottage Blooms” sets.

At last, I added art stones, glass beads and glitter and made splatters with white gesso diluted with water.

Paper used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I’m sure you have already seen our latest release, the Holiday In The Alps collection! 18 gorgeously vintage patterns, introducing the winter season with Christmas images and scenes of winter holidays in the Alps, feature only 3 colours, but still give rich and varied background for you winter and Christmas projects. But not only! Just take a look at my today’s layout:

Not a sign of winter, Christmas or even sports 😀 I used theme-neutral patterns to create this fun boy page with photos of my godson.

I layered three papers, tow of them hand-torn to create uneven, distressed edges and on that background I placed my photos and decorated them with flowers and metal embellishments:

I die-cut the title word in glitter foam and placed it upon a chipboard heart:

As a finishing touch I added some buttons here and there and splashed the layout with white acrylic paint.

I really like the way it turned out, light and cheerful 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal embellishments: mitform; chipboard: scrap.com.pl

 

Are you going use this collection for Christmas/winter projects only, or do you tend to use themed collections for other occasions too?

Hugs!

Winter Wishes

Welcome dear creative friends!

Winter is just around the corner and although I haven’t been able to develop any winter feelings yet,

I was totally enthusiastic about the new ‘Holiday in the Alps’ collection.

I love the colour combination blue – brown – white,

 optimal for every vintage style but you can also create very natural winter landscapes with it.

 I chose a picture of our Sheltie during a beautiful forest walk last year.

Hello creative friends!

Fall is knocking on your door, finally, you feel like saying, after months of heat and drought.
At the begin of October, 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 ‘The great Nature’ from the collection  Enjoying Outdoors’.

 

I love this nature feeeling with delicate leaves motifs, Simply adorable!!
