Welcome friends!

Recently we have made a beautiful winter trip in the mountains ‘Harz’.  

Snow and ice magically transformed the landscape into a winter fairy tale.

 

… and then we discovered a beautiful castle that looks like

 it was torn right from the pages of a storybook.

I choose for my mixed media layout the ”Sparkle” paper from the Maja Design ”Joyous Winterdays” collection.

I started as always by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background and then I cut out a handmade half moon from a white structure paper. I painted the moon with some watercolors and a little bit glitter paint and some deco stars for a magical effect. 

 It was a good background for a Dusty Attic chipboard and some winter trees made with cutting dies.

 

and  some another close up’s

a small cluster in the upper left corner

snow texture and glitter paints for some dreamy winter impressions

another bigger cluster made with frosted roses, silver winter berries, feathers and laces

I framed the cut out photo with a chipboard and used the moon as magical background.

I colored the flourish frame with white acrylic paint only on some places and white embossing powder to match to a wintry layout.

a wooden tree disc, snow paint and some paper leftovers

and a beautiful saying on a tag as addition and memory on a wonderful day

 

 used Maja Design papers from the ‘Joyous Winterdays’ collection

 

Many thanks for your visit and I hope I could inspire you to create your very own, amazing idea.

 

Happy crafting!

Welcome!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout to a very essential thing of my life.

Coffee the most important meal of my day, nothing works without it.
Sure, you know it too.

 It’s a very good mood maker in the morning, my daily needed vitamin drink ;-). 

A friend says, yes, that layout is the right new wall decoration for my kitchen.

Why not, only the right picture frame is missing.


I used some Maja papers from the Fika Collection

some details

.. hmm, it smells like coffee 🙂

 

… and so that the whole thing gets a little flavor,

I have also processed real coffee powder

 

Of course, some origin coffee beans shouldn’t be missing, or?!

 Duty calls – tell her, I’ll call you back!

 😉 🙂 😉

 Thanks for your visit!

Have a good time!

Hello  Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and this time I bring you this Layout.

I didn’t use one specific collection this time , almoste every piece of of paper I used for this layout are leftovers I saved from other projects I made.

Except for the base /background , for this I used Monochromes shades of Celebration -Vintage Teal and  Shades of Sofiero White/Sand.

I always keep every snippet , it’s such a waste to throw away these lovely papers.

I always will find a use for it , I deal for making cards or like this a layered layout.

You can tuck them behind another piece and create the illusion of a larger piece that is peeking out a little from underneath it.

Here I have some close up for you.  The little frames come from the local dollarstore.

 

Flowers and leaves are from Prima and 47 and Market

The white sticks come from my own stash , I found them between my Christmas decorations .

 

Thank you very much for visiting , I hope I gave you some inspiration with my layout.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Wishes

Welcome friends!

Today I will share with you a mixed media layout in form of a big gift combined 

with the best wishes for a peaceful, harmonious and cozy Christmas

 in the circle of your loved ones.

I had this idea when I saw the paper with the elegant lady 

sitting comfortably on a mountain with presents.

used Maja Design papers

I also used some christmas themed cutting dies (candles, pine branches, christmas stockings, lace)

and an awesome christmas tree chipboard from Dusty Attic.

Hello Sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and I’m a little late today. I was working on an other project but got stuck on that one,  so I decided to start a new one and that made me running out of time.

Today I made this Christmas layout for you , using the gorgeous new Christmas papers Christmas Season . LOOOOVE them.

While I was making this one I was listening to a mix of Evanescence , Night wish and Within Temptation so it got a little  Gothic feel over it.

Not my  intention but I love how it turned out , hope you do to.

The chippies U used  ( the sentiments and swirls ) are from  Dusty Attic. I colored them with embossing powder.

The sentiments with black embossing powder from WOW  and the Iron Garnish #2 swirls with ultra thick festive candy  from Blond Moments.

I love their embossing powders such a shame the company is not here any more.

 

The golden glitter snowflake , star and red and white berries are are from my stash , leaves  from making memories and the branches with red from Prima marketing.

Thank you for stopping by, hope I gave you some inspiration with these wonderful papers.

For me it’s time to set the Christmas tree and start decorating the home..YAAAY.  I love this time of the year.

Hope you enjoy your Holiday month too.
