Champagne in the Summertime

Posted by Silje Kristin Aunan

Hello everyone 🙂

Today it is finally time to share my first project created with the new collection to Maja Design, Summertime <3 

This is a delightful series of sheets that remind us of the summer. It brings up memories and makes us think about what we will do this summer. I have used the new sheets to decorate a small bottle with Champagne, placed it in a wheel barrow and the only thing I can think of is summer evenings with good friends, wine and strawberries <3

I have for a long time have the wheel barrow from Wycinanka, until the new sheets came from Maja Design, it have just been waiting for me to get an idea for what I whant to do with it. So I painted it white, before I started with the details. 

I have used several sheets from Maja Design, both from the collection that are 12×12 and 6×6. 
I have used these blue sheets from the new collection: 
Is My Favorite, Gives Me Joy, Glittering Water and By The Sea

The bottle I have decorated with a label with a bike on, just to remind us abute lazy summer days.

On the bottleneck I have attached two buttons with a bow.

All the flowers are put together with an unknown dies and the leaves below is embossed with embossing powders in silver. 

Half pearls that I spent inside the flowers and on the buttons I’ve made myself with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I have also chosen to place a bike on the front of the wheelbarrow, this is also embossed with silver and comes from Wycinanka.

In addition to the buttons on the bottleneck I have also attached a tag, here you can write a summer greeting if you will.

  • WOUW soooo sooo beautiful work from you here again Silje. I love your little wheelbarrow with the champagne in, and if it then was a strawberry champagne even, it would just be perfect, as I just LOVE that stuff he he he. But I also love your wonderful project here, it´s sooo beautiful and well made filled to the brim with details, that keep popping up every time we look at it.
