My Prince Charming

Hello there, Maja Fans!

I’m so happy you’ve decided to come visiting our blog on this Monday morning 🙂

I don’t want to make you feel down in the mouth, but do you realise Christmas is less than  100 days away? So, it’s high time to grab some holiday papers and… make something totally un-Christmassy! 😀 And so I did, and made a layout about my Prince Charming. Well, technically speaking, he’ll be some other woman’s Prince Charming in the future, I can just already see it 😉

mdmpchI just love this photo of my son! And I thought a nice bottle green of the Wishing You Peace And Joy bs sheet from the A Gift For You collection would be a perfect backround for it. The colour palette of the layout comes from the Underneath the Christmas tree – I like how grey, white and green work together 🙂 I layered the green paper upon the grey damask sheet and distressed the edges so that the pattern pops out here and there. Then I added some flourishes with a stencil and white gesso:

mdmpch1I matted the photo with my favourite patterns in the mini version from the small paper pad 🙂 I created the words for the title using stickers and added a sweet resin cupid 🙂

mdmpch2Moustache is one of the top scrapbooking motives for masculine projects, don’t you think? 😉 I also used a resin frame for a mini photo:

mdmpch3I love using real vintage stuff in my projects! Here’s an original old watch face I bought in a store that specialises in vintage parts. I filled the hands hole with a pearl brad.

mdmpch4I finished my design off with flower-shaped resin studs by Prima. And I really like to yummy dimension, though then a problem arises – how to store such layouts, if you have over 200? 😉 What’s your idea?
