Sweet girl new

Hello there Maja fans & welcome to the blog. Today I have a layout featuring my little grandaughter & I have done it a little different to how I normally scrap!!! I have actually cut the photo out and made it a little 3D against the background. I have used some papers from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection.


Naturally I have gone with lots of beautiful flowers & I have painted all the 2Crafty chipboard in black to create a good contrast to this fabulous paper.

I have also done some mixed media around the photo cluster & added lots of stamping, micro beads & added a little watercolour as well.


For my background I have used the “1891” paper & I have torn a strip to place along both the top & bottom edges using the “1905” paper. Both these papers are from the “Vintage Summer Basics collection.


Here is a close up of the photo fussy cut out. It is a great idea if there are things you don’t want to see in the background of the photo, although not all photos are suitable for doing this & I would never cut up an original.


Here is another close up of that “1891” paper. I think it gives this layout a rather modern edge.

Below you can see the papers I have used.


Thats all for today & I will see you back here again in a couple of weeks.

Until then.

Hi my name is Di Garling. I am married to a very patient man, I have two grown up sons, two grandchildren & a little dog. I owned & operated a Scrapbook shop for eight years here in Australia until I recently sold it & retired. I think retirement is the best kept secret. I love it, it gives me lots of time to enjoy my craft. I still teach scrapbooking & cardmaking once or twice a week, so all in all I am as busy as ever & wouldn't have it any other way.
