Miles Apart – Longing places

Welcome dear Maja friends!

Have you yet seen our latest amazing paper collection ‘ Miles Apart’ ??

If not – check them out! You’ll love them!
Delightful colours and inspiring motifs, I was immediately in love with the motives and

 used the longing woman for an summer sea inspired layout. The motive seduced me once again to paint with acrylic colours and so the brush continued painting the cut out ephemera picture almost by itself.

Many of us spend their holidays in this year on balconies or in the garden, no question that can be very relaxing. But at the seaside it would be even more beautiful, healthy air and bathing in the sea, you can only dream of that this year. when I discovered this woman with this longing look, it fitted exactly to my somewhat melancholic mood.


 Ephemera – cut outs from woman, girl and roses

some close up’s

in the upper area I simply painted with a fan brush a few clouds and seagulls

I love this vintage woman look and chose some suitable acrylic colors

other materials:

Chipboards from Dusty Attic; Mini Art Stones (Prima Marketing) ; Acrylic paints (DecoArt)

I hope I could inspire you to take time again for the beautiful things in life!
Happy crafting!
