Something beachy!

Hi Maja fans!  Welcome to my last post as Guest Creative this month.  I have had a wonderful time playing and creating with these gorgeous papers!  Thankyou so much to Maja Design for the opportunity.  Your product is truly beautiful!

Today I have used the collection Crea Diem.  I have used some of the more subtle papers but then added in the b/w contrast of the floral paper.  For those of you who know my scrapping will know I absolutely love to create beach themed layouts.  I decided to incorporate this theme to this collection of papers.  It was neutral enough for me to add my own splashes of colour but I love how the darkness of the floral paper echoes the rocks in my picture.



 I added lots of mixed media effects but love how the softness of the paper is still showing through.


 I tore the paper and distressed the edges.  Applied some misting and some texture paste to the torn paper.



 Layers of paper once again for my photo to sit on.  I will always distress my paper layers with a distressing tool and then I will continue to roll the sides with my fingers.


 I added lots of different textures to this page including Cheesecloth, Sinamay and loads of shells that we often collect whilst at the beach.


 Here are the papers I have used from this collection:

Ord Flyger Bort, Om Du Vill Alskas – bs, Sin Lyckas Smed and Kann Dig Sjalv


 Okay, so there you have it, my last creation shared on this lovely blog.  I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for letting me share my work with you all.

Big hugs xoStacey-sign
