Life Is Beautiful_MajaDesign_by GabriellePollacco

Hi Everyone! It’s Gabrielle here with you today to share my first Maja Design project since I got back from my summer hiatus! For this page I began by choosing a few papers from the Nyhavn collection.


I chose ‘Sitting on the Dock-bs’ as my background paper, and then used a variety of strips from the ‘Kings Square’, ‘Eating Out’ and ‘Romantic Lunch’ papers for the area behind the photo.  To matte the photo I used a striped paper from the Coffee in the Arbour collection called ‘Raspberry Cupcakes’.

I used an inexpensive pack layered floral stickers I had found in my local dollar store to accent my photo area and also added a variety of Dusty Attic Chipboard (Elegant Swirls #3, Word Pack #3 and Foliage #3).

For my mixed media, I used a variety of Shimmerz Paints both on the paper and on the chipboard pieces.Life Is Beautiful_MajaDesign_by GabriellePollacco_close3

For the top corner (and under the photo area) I used one of my new The Crafters Workshop Stencils I designed called ‘Moving Vines’.

I actually have a video tutorial I”m working on getting done,….I was unable to get the video done before my post today but I should have a video tutorial up on my blog/youtube very soon (by the 10th) on my blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Maja Design blog!
