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

I’ bringing you the layout I made using our latest release, the Celebration collection:

The layout is cheerful and light, featuring the subtle mauve and cream colours of the collection – yet it contains a strong message that I used as a title-journaling, taking advantage of the signature strip it was printed on:

Then I placed my photo upon layers of pieces of papers. I tried to showcase as many beautifull patterns as possible 😉 I added a chipboard clockface and some flowers:

Splashes of mists in matching colours, glitter ink dots and printed cotton ribbon add some shine to the page – it’s about life celebration so a bit of glam doesn’t hurt 😉

The layout also proves that boy layouts can employ pink shades without going too sweet 😉 Don’t you think?

And here’s what I used:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; mists: Tattered Angels; glitter ink: 13@rts; chipboard: Wycinanka; butterflies: UHK Gallery; ribbon: my stash.

 

That’s all from me today, thank you for visiting and hope to see you later!

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Joyous Winterdays collection. I chose to work with a photomontage I’ve made, inspired by The Castle of The Pyrénée by René Magritte. Oh, I forget to tell you that there is a step-by-step video showing you how I make this layout.

Mont Saint Michel by Pascale B.

I stamped randomly the background with two of my stamps Pascale’s Form and Pascale’s Grammar with a black Archival ink. Next, I primed the background with clear gesso.

When dry, I used different stamps to add some color to the background with different inks. I finished with splatters of the same inks. When happy with the result, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

While the paste was drying, I colored the Archival board with Magicals. Next, I sprinkled them with an embossing powder to add some interest.

I colored the flowers with two inks: one peach, one vintage rose.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glue all the embellishments with a 3D gel. To finish the layout I added some Art Stone and microbeads.

Good Morning Maja friends!

The time is right for a new winter inspiration. Actually snow should be here now and the frost pinch in the cheeks, but our winter weather is and remains dead loss. It’s grey and dreary, but the best time for crafting, or?! 

I love the timeless delicate colors and designs of this beautiful paper collection, always suitable to a lot of various themes. I used this striped design as background, colours reminds me on frosty days,

 on a walk through the snowy winter wood and all the secrets you can discover there.

Thanks for your visit today!

 Have a beautiful time!
