A big big welcome back to the home of Maja Design.  Today I have for you my next Maja Design Team creation.

It was so exciting to hear that “Soferio” an old favourite was being reprinted into a new edition with an additional Die Cut Sheet and Monochromes.

 Can’t wait to share with you my next creation but until then I present to you

“Love you to the moon and back”……..

2017-03-28 Love you to the moon and back 023 (1020x1024)

 As soon as I saw this first sheet of the collection called Strolling down the rose path, I instantly knew that this was where I would start. I teamed it with “Enjoying the fragrance” to create this lolly coloured layout of my gorgeous girl.

My starting point for this layout was to stamp and stencil with texture paste the background of Enjoying the fragrance. I have used Distress Ink Ground Espresso with a 49andMarket Stamp – Ethereal Stamp Set.  The edges of the paper were also stamped and powder embossed with another 49andMarket Stamp Set called Gabi’s Line Stitch . Once this was heat set I cut a wavy pattern from around the stamped image and then backed this to Enjoying the fragrance bs.

My photo was matted using pieces from the 6 x 6 paper pack of the same papers. They are so darn cute perfect for matting this sizing of photos.

As you can see above I have also tucked in some small snippets of miscellaneous lace I found sitting on my desk.

My photo and paper matting were sat upon some Dusty Attic chipboards that I put together to make a unique heart shape frame. These chipboards were gessoed and then inked randomly with Ground Espresso Distress Ink. I also rubbed a little Liquid Pearl “Blush” over and around the edges to pick up on the pink shades from the papers.

My Dusty Attic title “Love you to the moon and back” is a very special saying that my gorgeous girl and I have used for each other for as long as I remember. So it was only fitting to use it here. This was dressed in Finnabairs Art Extravagance Texture Paste White Crackle. Once it was dried I rubbed in some of the Blush Liquid Pearls and then rubbed over the textures with a little more of the Distress Ink.

My clusters of flowers that I have used here are the newest of the 49andMarket collections.

Shimmer and Shine in both the Blush and Ivory Melange. They compliment these papers perfectly!

And one more sneak peek!

For your convenience I have made a full and complete list of the materials used for this creation below.

I hope you have enjoyed my layout today. As I said before I have another coming up using this same beautiful beautiful collection.

I can’t wait to share it with you! Until then happy scrapping.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

Goodmorning lovelies,

Spring is in the air and I love it….it’s my favorite time in the year because now summer is really nearby. I really enjoyed the latest mood board from Maja Design did you already enter the challenge? If not I will have some inspiration for you using the beautiful mood board. It has beautiful greens and blues in it and such a romantic vibe….that I really enjoyed creating this layout as I do with all of my Maja Design projects.

20170324_073500_HDR1

I cut the The magnificent Flowerstreet bs sheet in half and placed it on top of the 6th of March bs sheet! Then I added some sprays, stamps and paste on my layout. All the chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and I gessod them all, and some of them I embossed and others I added some rust past & mini prills on.

The flowers I used are by several manufacturers. I really loved the text on the mood board that’s why I added it on my work in papers strips that I just printed out on my computer. I won a wonderful prize last month at a challenge site with all 13 Arts products and the hugh glass circle I added on top of the “happiness” disk is one of them.

Hello Maja fans!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”Nyhavn” collection.

A sensational layout that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

detail 1

I used for my background the ”Historical Atmosphere” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Strolling along the Canal” paper using both sides.

detail 2

I primed the background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Hydrangea Blue”, ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Danny Zuko’s Denim” to give some color.

detail 3

detail 4

I heat embossed the ”Sammi’s Swirls” and the ”Corner Gemma’s” chipboards with ”Oakleaf Olive” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The title was treated in the same way. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

detail 5

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with FW white ink.

Papers used:

Nyhavn-P

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, then applied clear crackle on to some of the pieces. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with Shimmerz Inklings chocolate & diamonds for the brown used, & giddy about green for the green used.
