Welcome dear Maja friends!
Kerstin here, I’m the new guy and I’m coming more often now 😉
Today I want to share with you a new winter layout.
Winter is around the corner, fields and meadows are frozen, nature lies down to rest. The best time for creating or?!
I have created a very magical mixed media layout.
I used the amazing Maja Design ‘Joyous Winterday’ collection – Sparkle + Blizzard
and some stamps (border, stars, saying), corrugated cardboard, cutting dies (deers, trees, stars, snowflakes, Holiday greens – Sizzix), chipboards – Scrap FX, pinecones, feather and flowers.
I start my backgrounds with a thin clear gesso layer to be able to create a nice watercolour effect on my paper. The picture is always my eye -catching focal point.

I love to work with corrugated cardstock for a nature feeling and I’m always a big fan of cutting dies, so many possibilities, not only for cards, it’s also a wonderful addition for layouts or out off the page projects. The very good quality of Maja papers is perfect for that technique.
a piece of fell gift ribbon for a cozy feeling, some deers with cutting die and a leftover from a structure wallpaper
all Maja papers are printed on both sides, that’s very useful, so you can make special effects, the lower star looks like patchwork
Many thanks for your visit!
Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose a photomontage I made inspired by the painting ” Evening Falls ” by Magritte.
I primed the background with clear gesso. Then, I added some stamping with two inks and stamps. Next, I added a design with a clear crackle paste and a stencil.
While the crackle paste was drying, I colored some chipboards with different inks. I colored the flowers with a silver ink.
Next, I colored the background with different inks.
I printed the title on a photo paper and I used the same inks to alter it. Then I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.
To finish the layout, I added some glass glitter and microbeads.

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,
Oh was I happy to get my design team package last week the new collection is such a pretty one, that I totally am in LOVE with it. Tomorrow I will be teaching some small classes at a retreat called “Kreadoe” which is much like CHA but a little smaller as it is in The Netherlands. I will be at a stand called De Hobby Boerderij were I will be using a bunch of Maja Design papers so if you will be visiting this retreat please come by to say hello 😉 Today I will be showing you a 12 by 12 layout using this wonderful new collection hope you like it.
I did some handstitching on my layout…a while ago I never thought I could make a layout without stitching but now I it’s rare if I do. So I guess things aways chance in scrapbooking. The chipboard pieces are treated with snoweffects the same as I did with the pretty flowers I used on this layout. I fell in love with this sweet picture I got from pinterest that I had to use it.
I really enjoy making wintery layouts although I dislike Winter more than the other seasons. The centers of the flowers are made with mini prills and little wooden balls (only the larger ones) some of the leaves in the flowers clusters are from a die by sizzix which I adore.

Hello my dear friends!!!
It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you.
As you may already know, I love finding my photos on Pinterest and this time, while I was searching I found that beautiful photo. So, I choose paper from the ”I Wish” collection and combined it with some beautiful flowers and a few metal embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
For my background, I used the ”I Wish For Peace and Joy” paper. First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Danny Zuko’s Denim”, ”Green with Envy Green” and ”Grab a Guy Gold”.
I heat embossed all the chipboards with the ”Orbit Olive Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.
When everything was glued down, I added some copper micro beads and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.
That’s all for today, my friends!
Thank you for stopping by!
Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose to work with a photo of a carrelet: a typical fishing cabin that can be found in the Gironde’s estuary.
I painted the back of a stencil with different acrylic paints. When happy with the result, I put the stencil on the background and I added immediately some heavy gesso through it. The paint showed through the heavy gesso.
While the background was drying, I colored some moss with a brown ink and some seeds with different acrilyc paints.
I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored some of them with a brown ink and the others with the same acrylic paints I used on the background.
I cut a piece of burlap and a paper to add under the photo. And I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.
To finish the layout, I added some Art stone that I colored with a grey ink.
