Hello dear creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout in vintage, suitable to the upcoming Easter days.

I used some beautiful papers from the ‘Vintage Spring Basics’ Collection.

7th of April as basic paper and added with some cut out’s and stripes from

6th of May, 10th of March, 11th of March and 2nd of April.

I always love it to use some chipboards from Dusty Attic

and some natural materials such like feathers, sisal and willow catkins.

I wish you all a very Happy Easter with a lot of creative colourful easter eggs!

Sunny and restful holidays creative friends!

Welcome Maja friends!

 It’s springtime  and the daffodils are already blooming everywhere, simply wonderful.

I was inspired to combine the bright yellow flowers with a rusty shade.

This radiates the charm of a beautiful old farmer’s garden, I love such beautiful places.

 

I used again a beautiful background paper from the awesome paper collection ‘Vintage Spring Basics’.

The sheet ‘1st of March’ together with ‘6th and 10th of March’

were absolutely perfect for a mixed media layout in a rustic vintage style.

Captured Layout with Video Tutorial

Hello dear friends!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout with a video tutorial to share with you. To create my page I used papers from the gorgeous ”I Wish” collection along with some beautiful Dusty Attic chipboards which was placed around a photo I found on Pinterest. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

 

You can watch all the procedure here…

And here are some close ups…

I used the ”I wish those memories will last” paper from the ”I Wish” collection and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Evergreen” and the ”Outdoors” papers from the ”Joyous Winterdays” collection.

To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso on the background. Then, I created texture with graphite paste and a stencil and heat emboss the pattern with the Wow metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing powder. Made some stamping here and there and used Lindy’s Gang sprays to add color.

Next, I embossed the ”Chain Circles” & the ”Ornate Corner #13” chipboard pieces with the Aged Ivory Stampendous embossing powder.
Continued with the ”Foliage #8” & ”Foliage #9” chippies which were painted with the Finnabair Golden Moss acrylic paint. The ”Window & Shutters #2” and the ”Wordpl@y3” pieces were also painted with the Finnabair Rustic Brown paint.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white acrylic ink.

Paper used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello!

I was inspired to create a new springtime layout in a romantic vintage style.

I love the soft colours in spring, nature awakens from its winter sleep, the sun becomes more beautiful from day to day, the best time to spend more time outdoors again.

I also remember our childhood days when there were no computers to sit in front of for hours.

I thought of blossoming cherry trees when the petals fell like snow.

As background I used the backside of the 4th of May.

Then I tored the 10th of May into several stripes and stuck them on top of each other.

 

some close up’s

I found the idea of using these calendar pages as layers under the photo very suitable and exciting.

 

 

 

 As in every collection there is also a page to cut out with different tags.

 As a special highlight I added the cut out little girl in the lower right corner

 and created a deep effect with foam pads.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy sunday!

Welcome Maja friends!

Spring has started and everywhere you can see snowdrops, crocus and winterlings.

 The first signs of spring have reached us.

So I was inspired to create a layout in delicate pastel shades.

I have used one of my favorite collections for my layout, the  Maja Design ‘Vintage Spring’ collection

and chose ‘1st of April ‘ and ‘6th of May’.

I covered some chippies with Heavy Gel and added some small Mini Art Stones.

As always, I hope you will be inspired and enjoyed how I built up the layers with corrugated cardboard

to create the dimension on this piece.

 

If you do need any further inspiration, then look no further than our blog to see all the wonderful creations

from all the very talented Design Team members.

Happy sunday !
