Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basic collection. And the cutie on the photo is my mom when she was 19 months old.

I stamped the background with two stamps and two Archival inks: one black, the other brown. Next, I primed the background paper with clear gesso.

I colored the background with different coral and brown inks. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste. I set it aside to dry naturally.

In the meantime, I die cut some leaves and flowers in a watercolor paper. I colored the leaves with brown and green inks and I kept the die cut flowers white.

I colored the edges of the petal’s roses with a coral ink. Then I sprayed water to allow the ink to fuse.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo. I glued some sisal before gluing papers and photo and all the embellishments.

To finish the layout, I added crystal glass beads and silver microbeads.

Hello, I’m Pascale B. from France.
Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition.

*Denim Love* Mini Tag album

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made the mini album on thick tags ( I have used the tim holt sizzix die for making the tags and cutting the papers from the great Denim and Friends collection).

For now I have put the pictures from the die cut sheet in the album, but they are not sticked and can be easily replaced by the real photos.

 as always, I prefer to use kraft/black accents in my masculine projects. And this collection was also calling for deep blue shades.  aren’t these pictures the cutest? they also come in the paper pads.  some close ups:  also all type of stars look great on the men voted projects, and if you find (or just color the hearts in black) even they will look appropriate here:)

the glorious Denim and Friends collection:

Have a lovely weekend,

Good morning, dear Visitors, welcome to the Maja Design blog 🙂

After a series of projects I created with the latest Celebration collection I return to one of my all-time favourites, Denim & Friends. I just love the colours and patterns of these papers! And here’s the layout I made:

The design of the page is my version of the clean&simple style 😉 I didn’t want to cover the beautiful background paper too much, so I matted the photo with just a couple of tags and a flower cluster mounted on a chipboard clock face:

I also decorated the paper with some stamping and a delicate brick pattern that I added with a stencil and modeling paste. The art clay angel wing adds some lightness to the darker colours:

I die-cut the layout title from the brown Monochromes set matching the collection – I’m so happy Maja started to release the plain papers sets, they save the pain of sacrificing beautiful patterned papers for matting and small elements 😀

Though it’s not the classic clean&simple page, I still like the way it turned out – light and fresh 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Kesi’art; stamp: My Favourite Things; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stencil: Tim Holtz; chipboard: Wycinanka, button: Lemoncraft; wing mold: Prosvet.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you later 🙂

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I am sharing the latest baby boy cover that I have made.

I just love these papers and the baby theme, so I always come back to my favourite mixture of fabric, papers, ribbons, flowers…

I usually take quite a few colors and play with them and some close shades of it. And the mixture of textures gives all that layered, wonderful effect.

some close ups:

Of course its the Vintage Baby collection in use:

have a lovely weekend,
