Goodmorning lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I would like to share another layout with you all, but first I want to tell you that if you head on over to my blog you could win one off three collections by Maja Design visit here ==> Amy´s Pretty Papers <== now to my layout! For this one I used my new favorite collection “Miles Apart” I just can’t believe how pretty this collection is can you? I totally went crazy on the fussy cutting part. For this layout I wanted to create a romantic scenery with lace and lots of layers I was totally inspired by the Dusty Attic moodboard of November while creating this layout. The picture is truly my most adorable {and favorite} picture I have of my handsome boy & little princess.

First I cut out the middel part of the thinking of you sheet, 2 centimeters to be exact around the edges. Then I distressed both pieces as much as I could with a tool then with my fingers to make the papers kind of curly at some places. Then I moved my chipboard pieces around and around {I think that took me two whole hours “Oh Boy”} until I liked where I put them.

Then I took the chipboard away after taking a picture first…then you see I added lace in the upper left corner and in the lower right corner and that’s how the papers stay on it’s place {didn’t use any glue here} after that I used some stamps, a stencil, modeling crackle paste & and a bunch of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays on the background sheet.

I also used the stencil with some of that same paste to alter the frame around the picture {I had never done that before} but it turned out great at least that’s what I think 😉 hehe Then I treated the rest of the chipboards with white embossing powder by Lindy’s Stamp Gang and later I added some waxes by Finnabair on them too…to finish of my layout I added some prills & sequins and of course some gorgeous butterflies <3

  • Oh my GOSH Amy!! This is sooooo soo beautiful. I just absolut adore this layout here, sooo sweet and somekind romantic too. It really speak to my heart and head in a way, that make me feel all warm inside. It is sooo well made in every little details, that I really believe it took you even 2 hours to place the chipboards, but the endresult is definitely worth it, and I´m blown away with the beauty in this piece here. You really should frame this and hang it on your wal for all to see, it´s just as gorgeous and any famoous painting, that´s for sure.
    Have a wonderful Christmas soon and enjoy time with your precious family. Hoping the new year will be sooo much better, than this year has been for all of us.
