Hello again everyone! Tina Ollett with you again today to share my next Maja project with you.
Today I have something much more different than I would normally do as a project for Maja. Whenever I look at my collections of Maja I see Vintage, Shabby, Shabby Chic. But never have I considered something country rustic! Well that is exactly what I have created for you today. This all come about when I come across my other Design Team project Moodboard at Dusty Attic. Of course by now you would all know that each and every project I create has an element or should I say a lot of elements of chipboards. Well anyway their moodboard this month motivated me to go in search for that perfect paper collection that could combine all this and more.
Walking in the forest was the most perfect fit for my project today. All the rustic colours of the countryside! You will see that choosing the papers for me was the hardest decision of all in the video that I made for this project today. If you keep scrolling through my blogpost you will find the link.
I have titled this project ……….“She loves in colour”…………
My photo of choice for today’s project was one taken late last year of my eldest daughter with a friend that we would see on my girls’ afternoon Violin tuition lessons. This friendly beauty lives in the paddock of the house that I would park at. And on most afternoons it would walk to my car just to check and see who it was! I was able to capture this gorgeous photo of both these beauties on one of our afternoon visits.
For this layout I have used my Maja Design papers in my layering with lots of blooms, chipboards and elements cut from the Die Cut sheet.
And from a different view.
You can see above that I have used a chipboard quote. My title for this layout was taken from the quote. It reads:
She see in black and white, thinks in greys but loves in colour…..
And the flowers are all from the 49andMarket series of Rustic Blooms. These were co-ordinated with some Dusty Attic chipboards that were coloured with differing mediums from Distress Inks to Rusting Powders and Crackle. If you follow the link below you will see how these were all dressed in the video.
This chippie was simply dressed with a little Liquid Pearls.
You can see above the layering of these gorgeous papers from Maja Designs. The die cut sheets are a fabulous idea to add that touch of difference to any layout. The journal cards I used from the Die Cut sheet were cut into mutiple pieces to make them go further. All the layers of patterned papers were sanded, distressed and randomly inked.
Again you can see the layering along with the added embellishments.
This little cute guy above was fussy cut from the Die Cut sheet. He is just too cute to leave out, don’t you think?
For my layout I have used the following papers from
Walking in the Forest :
The colours of fall ( a and b)
Die Cut Letters bs
Die Cut Sheet (a and b sides)
Well that is all from me today. I do hope you enjoyed your visit here! As I mentioned I have made a video to go with my post here. Just click on the link below to take you to it! Enjoy!!
Until next time happy crafting and take care.
Absolutely gorgeous work Tina..! <3
