Hello Maja Friends,

for my today’s post I created 2 Layouts. Initially I planned to make only one, but you may know that sometimes when we our creative mind starts thinking it’s difficult to stop it. So I followed it and this is what I’ve reached.

The first one has no mixed media layers. I’ve only put several layers of paper and die cuts together.

I used the sentiment for my Lo, and I think that this little mistake make it too cute for the kid’s project.

Before I made this Layout, I’ve started with other background, I kept all the elements mostly.

I started with the paper, you can check it in my video clip.

and only then I added few paint drops.

I like these quilt patterns, that I made with Spellbinders dies.

Hello and a huge welcome to you! Today I am here to share my next project which I created using Maja’s gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics combined with Coffee in the Arbour. If you keep scrolling I will share a few close-ups and more details of how I used these beautiful papers.

“Best Friends”

I love yellows…….. and browns just seems to be the thing I go to next! So for this creation I came across this photo of my gorgeous youngest daughter and our furbaby Rafael some time ago in the back yard at home. It was one of those lucky shots that it was fortunate that they were looking my way at the correct time. I had printed this photo off a few times and I never liked the way this came out in the sepia tone so I had stashed it away. But for these project the colours fit beautifully, wouldn’t you agree?

With papers tearing seems to be a natural progession. My first sheet (background sheet) was  Coffee in the Arbour’s Lemoncurd. The soft tones to this paper drew me to it instantly. I did a little stenciling on it but mainly left it’s beauty remain. I then cut the frame from the Vintage Spring Basics 1st of March Sheet. Did some distressing and adhered it to the background piece. With the remainder of the 1st of March I did some tearing and adhered the torn middle section to the page.  I love the images of the calender and other elements that are this sheet. They are just gorgeous and really lend itself to my project!

I also used the back of 1st of March to help the photo pop a little. Again tearing papers to fit the matting of my photo. The other torn pieces were layered amoungst the chipboards and flowers and clocks that I cut from from the Vintage Autumn Basics No.XVI. These were cut carefully and sanded and distressed to give that worn feeling.

2017-08-21 Best Friend 009 - Copy (800x600)

I used some Dusty Attic chipboards inked with Distress Inks and also some paper moulds that I made a few weeks back along with a charm that I picked up in my travels to Taiwan a few months back. I love the simplicity of it.  When everything was layered I then dry brushed my elements to soften the page and then added in a few microbeads with some 3D Gel.

Hello my dear friends and Happy Sunday to all!!!

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

For one more time, I decided to use papers in blue and earth tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

Closer 1

I used for my background the ”Sunbleached” paper and I made some layers with the ”Wood” paper.

Closer 2

I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and then, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray ”Dark Chocolate Truffle”.

Closer 3

I heat embossed the title with the ”Madonna Robe Blue Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. The ”Thistle Shrub” chipboards was also embossed with the ”Golden Angel Wings” powder. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

Closer 4

To finish my page, I added some art stones with gel medium.

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog :)

Today I have a sweet baby layout to share with you:

mdangel

I combined the Vintage Frost and Vintage baby collections to create a delicate girly layout with my sweet niece. I created a layered background placing a square in the centre of the striped paper and adding a punched decorative square on top. Then I added a die-cut doily as a decorative corner between the photos:

mdangel1

I matted the photos with papers and tags from the Ephemera sheet, and then adde a couple of balloons I cut out from the New Arrival paper:

mdangel2

The flower cluster includes paper straws with metallic foil patterns and gold metallic drops:

mdangel3

I made the title with foam sticker letters, embellishing the letter “a” with a molded angel wing and added a signature strip from one of the papers as a decorative border:

mdangel4

As a cherry on top, I stamped “You are perfect” in the lower corner.

I really love how the papers and patterns compliment the cute photos of the baby girl :) What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: letters: American Crafts; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts, my stash; die: Prima; punch: Martha Stewart, mold: Prosvet; stam: ScrapBerry’s; paper straws, gold drops: mys stash.

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I have a another layout to share for this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Enjoying Outdoors” & “Summer Crush” because both collections had the colors that I wanted to use for it which are purple/pink/peachy tones. This time I used another picture of Camilla her precious twins singing like two little diva’s. My post was for last Friday but I was really busy adding this video so I was not ready in time so I stole this Monday to post with approval of Camilla ofcours hihihi.

Oh this was such a fun layout to make I do have my favorite Maja Design collections and those are not on top of my list but I have to say I think now I will take them out more often. With my precious 49 and Market flowers it is easy to transform your layout in a flowers sea of gorgeousness. As you will see in my video I made this layout through out the day as the light changes during the movie. Have fun watching 😉

Hope you enjoyed my second video ever thank you so much for watching now for the closeups:
