Hi Everyone,

Its Keren here and I created a layout for Maja Design using the new Denim & Friends collection. I used the “Fashion” paper as the background for the layout as its very light and matches any color.

I used the blue toned papers from the collection as I wanted to mimic the colors of the ocean in my picture. I really love creating beach themed layouts and this collection is perfect for it.

Here are some close-ups of my layout. I ripped some papers from the “Worn Indigo” and the “Jeans & T-shirt” papers to mimic the ocean waves. Then I used some Petaloo by Flora Craft flowers to embellish.

The gold script was created using the Rub-ons and Foil Accents from Prima and I added a few more gold highlights on the layout to tie it all in.

I used a chipboard by Blue Fern Studios that has a maritime theme and painted it in gold to match the rest of the layout.

Layout

Hello my dear friends!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you made with the awesome ”Denim & Friends” collection.

When I found on Pinterest this beautiful photo of a girl with a mysterious feeling I knew that I had to scrap it with these gorgeous papers. So, I choose the ”Leather” paper and combined it with some beautiful flowers from Petaloo by Floracraft. I have also used some torn pieces from the ”Wood” paper to make some layers behide my photo. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure…

 

Here are some close ups…

I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and also applied some white on the center of the paper to highlight the spot where I placed my cluster.

Then, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Cattail Copper Brown” and ”Dark Chocolate Truffle”.

Closer 3

I heat embossed the ”Flourish 2” chipboard with the ”Midnight Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. The ”Foliage Set 1” and the title from the  ”Mini Travel Word Set 2” were also embossed with the ”Spanish Moss Green” powder. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.

To finish my page, I added some Bronze micro beads & Plum glass beads with gel medium and made some splatters with White Artist Acrylic Ink.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friend collection. I chose another photo montage I’ve made. Oh I completely forgot to tell you that we have been specially sponsored by Petaloo by FloraCraft this week.

As usual, I primed the background with clear gesso. I mixed some Magical powder with 3D Glos gel to obtain a teal paste. I used this paste with a stencil to add a design on the background.

While the background was drying I colored some chipboard with different waxes. I cut some leaves in a watercolor paper that I painted with different inks.

I added some colors to the background that match the colors of the photomontage.

I cut a few paper to add under the photo and I glued some beautiful flowers from Petaloo along with the leaves I’ve die-cut.

Hello friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share my newest Maja Designs creation. I have reverted back to a favourite collection this time around……. “Summertime”. With this beautiful collection I created a soft shabby layout full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers from Penny Lane Garden Collection. Petaloo are sponsoring Maja this month with their wonderful flowers…… thank you Petaloo !!

……………”Dream”………….

Oh how I loved this collection I think I have already mentioned that but it definitely is a favourite for me. As always my layout evolved slowly and didn’t finish off how I had imagined by I was quite happy with my end project. Below are all the papers I used from this collection. Some of the papers were gessoed to help with the effect I was looking for. I have used lots of media and paints to colour my papers and Dusty Attic chipboards.

My background papers was firstly primed with gesso and then I laid down a run of 3D Gloss gel and over that some very distressed muslin. This was my starting point and from here I layered my page with photo matting papers from the Summertime collection and then the sepia toned photo over the top.

2017-09-12 Dream - Maja Design Creation - September 032

Around my photo I used some beautiful Leafy Stem Dusty Attic chipboards. To the right of the photo I added in a Arch Window also from Dusty Attic. These were all dressed in Crackle Pastes, inks (Distress Inks) and Prima Art Alchemy Green Gold Acrylic Paint. You can see above that I also added in some Art Stones.

I did a little stamping with a Carte Postal stamp at the side of my photo and very randomly with a script stamp.

For my title I have used a very old rub on that I added to some transparency paper and cut out. I have the hugest collection of rub-ons that I just can’t get enough of!!

2017-09-12 Dream - Maja Design Creation - September 085

You can see above that I also added some Texture Crackle Paste to my background page to help bring the project together. Lastly I went over my whole project dry brushing with white gesso to help keep this very muted and to of course keep the photo the centre of attention. This photo is of my youngest daughter which was taken by a friend at a school excursion a few years back now when she was only in prep. How time flies she is now a highschooler!!

Well that is all from me today. I so hope that you enjoyed my project and I hope to see you back here again very soon. Stay tuned for more design team prettiness tomorrow.

Take care and happy crafting!!Tina-sign
