Shine On

Hello Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

It’s Maja here to share a layout I made using our latest release, the Home for the Holidays collection. But no, still no Christmas projects – but Maja Design’s collections are all so universal you can use them for any theme 🙂 And so my layout is about my younger son, whose smile reminds me of a shiny star, brightening up his face 🙂


First I added some pattern – and texture, at the same time – with modeling paste and a stencil. As the title of my layout is “Shine on”, I decided to use the star motif as he dominant element of the design. I traced some of the stencilled stars and die-cut and layered several star shapes:


Then I added some shine, of course 🙂 I used various mists to distress and colour chipboard pieces. I also included a real vintage clock face 🙂


I mixed some masculine motives such as gears and screw brads…


…with some softer accents like flowers and sequins. I brushed the flowers with white gesso to give them a more shabby look. I also added some paper signature strips – do love them!



Maja Design papers: Home for the Holidays: Family bs, Friends, Friends bs, Traditions, Traditions bs, To spend time. Other: dies: Spelbinders; flowers: Prima, my stash; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka; brads: Rayher; mists: Prima, Tattered Angels; charm, string, sequins: my stash.


I do like the way the layout turned out, both boyish and delicate and sweet, just as little boys are 🙂

See you soon!
