Good day and welcome to the Maja Designs blog.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my project for August. This project “II” was created using papers from the gorgeous Celebration collection in shades of pinks and browns. I wanted to make something very pretty using these cute photos of my youngest and our boy Rafael. They are especially good friends and are often found rolling around out on the grass together in the late afternoons when the sun has gone down. I captured these photos not so long ago and decided to use 3 of them in a series rather than just one photo like I usually do.

I have used pieces Jubilee back and front by tearing sections and layering them top and bottom of the layout over the top of To the party. I kept this layout very clean and have only used medias on the Dusty Attic chipboards . The photos I chose were changed to sepia colours and cut down and laid inside the doily chipboards to help highlight and frame the photos.

To help embellish my layout I have used some coordinating Lilac flowers from 49andMarket.

I popped a little lace in between layers of the papers and also I have used some tea stained muslin to help keep my layout soft and shabby.

Some of the chipboards below have been spritzed with glimmermist and then highlighted with a little white gesso.

I have also added in some pretty pearls to help compliment my layout.

Papers used from the Maja Design “Celebration” collection are below. Just gorgeous aren’t they!?

Welll that is all from me today. I do hope you enjoyed my post today. Until next time happy scrapping and take care.

Hello Maja Friends,

August – my favorite Summer month, though it is the last before the dull and rainy days come. However I like it more than any month.
So that is why I enjoy looking through the pictures taken this summer and to create something that is associated with this particular month.

I combined several Summer collections for my Layout – Summertime, Summer Crush and Life in the Country.

I tried to keep the red and greens on my layout, using the paper layers, and added some embellishments of yellow and orange.

I also stretched the colors from the photo – soft blue and pumpkin and played with the acrylic paints .

I added some fussy cutting, though I mixed the greens and reds from almost the same patterned papers.

So it’s time to enjoy each and every day this Summer, hope you will follow my advice.

Products used:

Prima Marketing flowers, 2Crafty chipboard, Wycinanka Chipboard, Pentart acrylic Paints.

Look for cooling?!

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here today and I would like to share with you a layout for my August inspiration.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that photo. And, the beautiful papers from the ”Vintage Romance” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background I used the back side of the ”Ephemera Cards” paper and I made one layer on it with the ”Marriage Proposal” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

I used some Lindy’s Gang sprays to color my page and made some stamping here and there.

I choose some Dusty Attic chipboards and I used some Lindy’s embossing powders to heat emboss them.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and glitter and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.

Papers used:

 

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!
