Good day and welcome to the Maja Designs blog.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my project for August. This project “II” was created using papers from the gorgeous Celebration collection in shades of pinks and browns. I wanted to make something very pretty using these cute photos of my youngest and our boy Rafael. They are especially good friends and are often found rolling around out on the grass together in the late afternoons when the sun has gone down. I captured these photos not so long ago and decided to use 3 of them in a series rather than just one photo like I usually do.

I have used pieces Jubilee back and front by tearing sections and layering them top and bottom of the layout over the top of To the party. I kept this layout very clean and have only used medias on the Dusty Attic chipboards . The photos I chose were changed to sepia colours and cut down and laid inside the doily chipboards to help highlight and frame the photos.

To help embellish my layout I have used some coordinating Lilac flowers from 49andMarket.

I popped a little lace in between layers of the papers and also I have used some tea stained muslin to help keep my layout soft and shabby.

Some of the chipboards below have been spritzed with glimmermist and then highlighted with a little white gesso.

I have also added in some pretty pearls to help compliment my layout.

Papers used from the Maja Design “Celebration” collection are below. Just gorgeous aren’t they!?
