Hi there, Maja Fans! Welcome to the blog today!

I hope you’re having a great summer Monday 🙂 If not, just make yourselves a cup of tea/coffee, relax and have a look at what I made to share today 🙂

We are so lucky to be living in a digital camera era and can take tons of photos to preserve the precious moments we live through! And so today a summer layout I made using our latest collection, Summer Crush:

mdportoI just fell in love with the retro images and designs of this new collection! I thought it was simply perfect for the background of this slightly nostalgic photo of our holiday in Italy that though ended just a week ago, can be called only a memory now…

What really drew in my attention during our holiday was that the mountains in Italy very often “drop” directly into the sea 😉 Therefore I tore pieces of paper and layered them to achieve this mountains-in-the-sea effect:

mdporto1Then I splattered several colours of mists to imitate droplets of water sprayed around by the sea breeze:

mdporto2I added some flowers that matched my colour palette – I chose the burlap flowers also because the fabric resembles sails of the boats in the Portofino marina where the photo was taken.

mdporto3I also added mika flakes to reflect the glistening of the sea waves…

mdporto4…and cheesecloth for the seafoam:

mdporto5When I look at my layout, I can recall the moment quite clearly – and that’s the beauty of scrapbooking! 🙂
