Hi everyone and a great BIG warm welcome to Maja Design blog… today I have a step by step tutorial for you . My very first tutorial I have ever done so I hope you like it .I included lots of images to help you with my process of layering … here goes !!
I created this Layout using the Life by the Sea collection . I like to use elements that reflect the energy of my work . Here the texture reflects the sand, waves, shells, and ocean .
MY PROCESS – Step by Step images . Maja Design papers are perfect for distressing . Do you think this looks a little like the movement of waves in the ocean ? Now the fun begins . adding texture with modelling paste and a stencil . when creating I lay my elements down and then move them around until I am happy . You can see by this image I have moved the position of the circle and chipboard. The photo is mounted and placed over the chicken wire chipboard . Next step is to begin adding other elements of your choice . keep adding lots of elements to form a cluster … this creates interest and draws the eye across the page . Clear crackle paint adds richness to the elements and papers , and gives a shiny textured finish . Be creative and add beads and muslin to mimic the ocean . My completed Layout … as you can see creating layers is very easy and lots of fun. just be creative as you go and add lots of elements to create depth and texture . Thanks so much for looking at my tutorial . I hope this helps you understand my process .these papers are just so perfect for a seaside Layout or project .. I had fun creating this and I do hope I have inspired you to begin creating your own layout by the sea .
