Today I’m up on Maje Design blog with a new layout featuring the Celebration collection. I chose a photo of my father with his parents and his sister taken in 1959.
I tore the Champagne sheet in three pieces, and I glued them to the Anniversary. Then, I stamped the background with a brown ink before priming it with clear gesso.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally.
I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper, that I colored with green and brown inks.
I cut a few papers to add under the photo as well as sisal. I started to build the composition with different elements: flowers, doily’s scraps, leaves and a black street sign.
When happy, I colored lightly the background with green, brown and pink inks.
To finish the layout I added some microbeads.

I love your layout! Can you tell me please, what is that fine straw-like material you have used behind the flowers?
Hi Sandra, it’s the sisal.
