Hello and welcome back Maja friends. Today I am here to share my monthly project with Maja Designs papers. And I really couldn’t resist using this months moodboard, as these are my favourite colours! Thank you Marie for the fabulous inspiration. Have you seen the moodboard yet? Well if not I have added it below for you.
There is still over a week left to enter the challenge if you wish to do so. The monthly winner wins a collection of Maja Designs of their own choice.
And this is my interpretation of the moodboard for September. This is “Memories”.
For my project I have combined two collections to allow for the moodboard. I have used the gorgeous polkadots from Denim and Girls with a sheet of the monochromes in sage and a sheet of 22th of December from the Vintage Frost. All three of these papers were used to create layers in the background of my photo. I love to do this so the interest is bought back to my photo. This photo is from a series of photos that I took a couple of years back. I do love these photos of my girls just caught up in a moment hanging together.
With keeping in line of the colours of the moodboard I have used some handmade moulds and coloured them in a rust and then some acrylic greens to compliment the papers. I have also used some cream flowers from 49andMarket to bring out the polkadots in the background. I added in a distressed doily and also some hand dyed ribbons to compliment the page.
Above you can see the addition of chicken wire. And no this is real. I was lucky enough to come across some miniature chicken wire. I have rusted these pieces which really brings up the added textures in the wires. I have also added in some highlights of bisque to add some of the orange shades from the moodboard. These are only very light but I feel made all the difference to the colours.
And from another angle you can see all the additional flowers in their layers added to the moulds.
Well I hope you have enjoyed my moodboard inspiration today. Please stay tuned for more gorgeous work from our Design Team.
