 Welcome dear Maja friends!

I was inspired to create a new mixed media layout as memory on beautiful summer days on the beach some years ago.

I used some papers from the latest beautiful collection ‘Miles Apart’ and suitable for  Monochromes ‘ Shades of Miles’ in blue shades, blue as the sea and heaven and blue as one of my favourite colours :-).

I worked in vintage style with the single sheet ‘Keeping busy’,

 combined with distress brown tones a perfect match for me.

 

  

some close up’s

 a fitting cluster with chipboards, cutting dies, shells and a blue velvet flower
 bubble blowing with stencil and stamps

 

other materials:

Chipboards from Dusty Attic; cutting dies, stamps, stencil,

Modeling paste, Mini Art Stones (Prima Marketing) ; Distress ink (Ranger)

Thanks for your visit!

Have a good time!

Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and I bring you this layout.

Ooooh my shabby heart, I love this collection so much!

The miles apart collection that is . It’s the ultimate shabby chic collection for me now.

The soft colors the roses ..everything. Next to the Sofiero collection my favorite one.

I do love the strips at the bottom of  every sheet of paper, it always ahs a nice quote on it that you can use on cards, mini albums, lay out, you name it.

I especially love the the one from the keep in touch sheet. I used it at the top corner on your left.

i cut out the flowers from the Thinking of you sheet..they are wonderful to use as a die cut.

Some pearly swirls from Prima Marketing to finish it off.

This is a chippie from Dusty Attic wich I colored with sugar floss lustre and sugar orchid lustre embossing powder from  Blond Moments.

I hope you love this layout as much as I do.

Thank you for visiting , stay safe and hop to see you again soon.

 

 

Love Always

Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today it’s my turn again to post something that I made with the gorgeous Maja Design papers. For this layout I used three collections named ‘Nyhavn’, ‘Little street Cafe’ & the stunning new ‘Miles Apart’….jet again I used a precious picture of mine of both our children {so much love I see when looking at it} that’s why I named this layout Love Always….This was one of the first picture I took while Abbey had her eyes open so widely and looked straight into my camera…that I was so happy that I took it. Now Kevin likes to let me take pictures again yeah. I had so much fun creating this layout although yellow is not my favorite color to scrap I think it turned out pretty nice 😉

First I used a Martha Steward punch to cut the upper part of my layout, I cut that out of the ‘Sitting at the dock’ & ‘Stay Creative’ sheets then I placed that on feeling good sheet. Then I added some twine and placed a circle on the middle of my layout. Later on I added a Dusty Attic stencil and some Lindy’s sprays on my work.  I was inspired by last months mood board at the Facebook site from Dusty Attic. Lets have a closer look:

All the chipboards I used are by Dusty Attic I treated them with white gesso and some of the I embossed like most of the words, the others I gessod and ruste pasted them I was planning on using my wonderful dusty attic paint but it was all dried out sadly enough. So I treated it with waxes and spray.

And then comes the fun part adding my flowers that I selected for this layout they are all by 49 and Market. For the finishing touch I added some metal embellishments and some dress my craft sequins which I totally adore….and I added some white gesso on my flowers to make them a softer tone.

 Maja Design papers used: Nyhavn – Sitting at the dock, Little street Cafe – Feeling good and the greens from Miles Apart – Stay Creative & Be Safe.

   

I hope you had fun reading my post and we do love to see your work created with the lovely Maja Design papers on the  Facebook site….Have a gorgeous day and I hope to see you soon….

Love

 Hello and welcome Maja Design friends. It has been a little while since I last was here. But I am back finally today to share with you my newest creation called “Let your smile change the world”. I thought this title  was quite apt for our challenging times at present.

So of course being my first project back after a long break, I was so keen to use the latest release papers from Maja Design which is called “Miles Apart”. Oh how my heart melts every time I look at these papers. They are simply so soft and subtle with that always so special vintage aspect of the Maja Design line of papers.
My starting point here was gutting and distressing and then the layering of my papers. I chose the pink from “Distance” to frame the layout and “Stay Home” were used as the centre piece. And then along the way I found the addition of the Aloe from the beautiful 49andMarket Seaside Blooms flowers, helped keeping the project soft and subtle.
Distance
Hopeful
Monochromes – Shades of miles – Steel Blue
I chose a portrait photo, that I adore of my youngest, and swapped it to black and white and printed them out in differing sizes. I layered these up on torn sections and cut mats of the leftover “Miles Apart” papers. I also cut a heart freehand from the “Distance” leftovers.
I have used lots of gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards and 49andMarket flowers to help embellish this project and frame my photos.
 
All my chipboard pieces were primed with a Liquitex Clear Gesso. This helps to protect the chipboard from becoming too wet from the medias. I think it also gives your chipboard a truer colour from whatever medium you are adding. They were, once dried, coloured with acrylic paints.
I also added in a little random stamping using Walnut Stain distress ink and a 49andMarket stamp. But really I didn’t need to do too much to this background as it had a lot of detail already there.
And the full  Sentimental Quote at the top right of the layout reads :
“Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.”
 
And that is all from me today.
Until next that I am here, take care and happy crafting.
Hugs

Goodmorning lovely Maja Design fans,

Today i’d like to share another layout with you all and again I used two pictures, one of my darling husband when he was just a little boy back in 1972 and one of our daughter in 2020. They both had the same cookie jar between there legs isn’t that cute I just so adore both pictures that I had to use them on a layout.

As I told you in one of my previous posts I like to use the opposite parts of my chipboards as I also did here next to my husbands picture you see the big part and then the barbwire that came out of that part. I used some ruste paste on my chipboard and later on some opal magic wax {Blue Velvet} it gives it a nice purple/blueish color just like my flowers.

On the background I added a Dusty Attic stencil and some spray by Lindy’s {Sidewalk Chalk} my favorite spray. On the background of my white circle paper I added a text stamp and I used a flair in my flower cluster which I totally love to use on my layouts. I also gessod the word “captured”and the stamped on it with the same text stamp. For the finishing touch I added some purple wishing bubbles {oh my aren’t they the cutest}

Maja Design papers used: Nyhavn – Sitting at the dock & Celebration – Ephemera

  

I hope I have inspired you with this layout to create something beautiful and please do share your work with us on our Facebook site we always love to see your work. Have a blessed Tuesday and see you soon….

Love
