Hello friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share my newest Maja Designs creation. I have reverted back to a favourite collection this time around……. “Summertime”. With this beautiful collection I created a soft shabby layout full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers from Penny Lane Garden Collection. Petaloo are sponsoring Maja this month with their wonderful flowers…… thank you Petaloo !!

……………”Dream”………….

Oh how I loved this collection I think I have already mentioned that but it definitely is a favourite for me. As always my layout evolved slowly and didn’t finish off how I had imagined by I was quite happy with my end project. Below are all the papers I used from this collection. Some of the papers were gessoed to help with the effect I was looking for. I have used lots of media and paints to colour my papers and Dusty Attic chipboards.

My background papers was firstly primed with gesso and then I laid down a run of 3D Gloss gel and over that some very distressed muslin. This was my starting point and from here I layered my page with photo matting papers from the Summertime collection and then the sepia toned photo over the top.

Around my photo I used some beautiful Leafy Stem Dusty Attic chipboards. To the right of the photo I added in a Arch Window also from Dusty Attic. These were all dressed in Crackle Pastes, inks (Distress Inks) and Prima Art Alchemy Green Gold Acrylic Paint. You can see above that I also added in some Art Stones.

I did a little stamping with a Carte Postal stamp at the side of my photo and very randomly with a script stamp.

For my title I have used a very old rub on that I added to some transparency paper and cut out. I have the hugest collection of rub-ons that I just can’t get enough of!!

You can see above that I also added some Texture Crackle Paste to my background page to help bring the project together. Lastly I went over my whole project dry brushing with white gesso to help keep this very muted and to of course keep the photo the centre of attention. This photo is of my youngest daughter which was taken by a friend at a school excursion a few years back now when she was only in prep. How time flies she is now a highschooler!!

Well that is all from me today. I so hope that you enjoyed my project and I hope to see you back here again very soon. Stay tuned for more design team prettiness tomorrow.

Take care and happy crafting!!Tina-sign

Layout

Hello there sweeties!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you made with the gorgeous ”Sofiero” collection.

I used a pink paper that was matching perfectly with the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I made this layout with the ”Enjoying the Fragrance” paper along with some gorgeous ”Petaloo” flowers. You see, from the 11th-24th of September Maja Design is beign sponsored by Petaloo by FloraCraft and all our creations will be made with these beauties.

I made a mixed media work on my background with modeling paste and a stencil and continued by coloring my page with the Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray ”Whale Watch Blue”.

I heat embossed all the chipboards with the ”Cosmic Blue Violet” Lindy’s embossing powder. As usual, the chipboards I used are 2crafty.

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I wanted to show you the masculine gift envelope that I made using the Nyhavn collection. The gift envelopes become more and more popular today as sometimes it is much more appropriate to give the gift card, especially if its a person you don’t know well enough. So here is my version of one for a Man…

konv_muzhsk_maja_nyhavnwhen playing with this collections in a masculine style I always tend to add some black add ons, use lots of great shades and add sone kraft details.

This picture was taken back in 2010 and I never used it on a layout before…all the chipboard pieces are by The Dusty Attic and where treated with white gesso and Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays but also I used some different sizes art stones and some stamps and stencils. The stamp I used is a new one from 49 and Market designed by own very own Pascale….awesome job girl love it!
