Hi everyone, it’s me Gabrielle here with you today to share my newest layout using beautiful blue papers from a variety of the Maja collections.  I used the lovely dark blue floral (XX) from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection as my background (matting) paper…643-vab-xx

The next layer I used is from the Vintage Frost Basics collection called December 9th, for this one I did a little tinting with some Lindy’s sprays and added some texture with a doily stencil and home-made texture paste…


For the heart design, I cut out a piece from the 6th of March paper from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. This I matted with some of the Vintage Autumn Basics (XX) paper (that I cut out from the center of the background matting paper…


After I matted the heart cut from the above paper, I used a scallop edge scissore to create the border around the outside of the heart.

You can see the matting design in the above photo, I used a Signo Unibal white gel pen to put small dots inthe scallops to create an eyelet effect.  The flourishy chipboard frame is one of my favourites from Dusty Attic Designs (Decorative Scroll #1)

I used Lindy’s (Afternoon Delight Denim) spritz on the background and added texture with home-made texture paste and a Prima Doily stencil.

The flowers I used are a loose variety of blooms from Prima Marketing and Dusty Attic Designs and the title chipboard was designed by my friend Janene at The Scrapbook Diaries.  The Scrapbook Diaries has created a limited kit which also comes with a video tutorial I made to go with it if you are interested in trying out creating this page.

I hope you enjoyed my project today and hope that I’ve inspired you to play with some of your Maja Design papers! xo
