Love Yourself…Wholeheartedly

Hello!! Marilyn here, I am very excited because today is my first post as a Maja Design Team Member.  For my page I worked with the Gorgeous “Crea Diem Collection”  and I selected these pink, gray and white colors.  My idea was a soft color vintage page with lots of textures and this was my inspiration…


With these same beautiful papers I created all textures, I made the flower by hand and cut a lot of strips to add the effect of the ends of the bow and I love the final result.  These papers have beautiful designs in both sides that I used to create all these shades of colors.


Here you can see all the layering and textures.


I added stitching, silver swirls, pearls, lace and butterflies. I also used gesso and acrylic paint.
