Hi Maja friends, I’m very exited to bring you my first post on the Maja team. Today I have a layout to share that I made with a photo of a friends Son. I don’t often make “Boy” layouts and I ended up putting lots of flowers, lace and pearls on it, I went with a Green and Grey colour combo to try make it less feminine.
I started by trimming the edges off and distressing the 1946 paper from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I layered this on to the 11th of March paper from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection, before I glued them together I cut the middle section out to use to layer under my photo. I also used the 10th of March paper as well to layer under the photo.
I added colour to the background with mists and Gelatos, with texture from using modelling paste and stencils. Once I was happy with my level of colour I glued down my paper layers, I distressed the edges of each piece first. I tucked some lace amongst my layers before I added my flowers and some metal embellishments.
I finished off by adding some pieces of chipboard and pearls.
Thank you very much for visiting today
Your layout is fantastic! Your friend and her family will treasure it for generations to come. The green and neutral palette is perfectly suited to a boy layout. The layers, distressing, and gorgeous florals work together to create a timeless work of art!
