Hi Everyone, Its Keren Here with a new layout for the Maja Design Blog using one of my all time favourite collections Vintage Summer Basics.

I love going to the beach and as a family that’s our favourite place to go on vacation. This picture of my kids running on the sand was taken during our last vacation in Mexico. I wanted to create movement on my layout and so I stencilled across the page using white gesso.  Then I sprayed with Prima’s blue Color Bloom sprays summer sky and glistening waves, to mimic the colour of the ocean.

I mounted the photo on small pieces of Maja Design papers and then framed the photo in a Blue Fern Studios chipboard frame which was lightly daubed in white gesso. Then I glued lots of sequence and textured stones around the  frame to add lots of texture to the background and make it look like an ocean. Sequins are from “Dress my Craft” and the art stones are Prima Finnabair.

Here you can se the texture and the Vintage Summer basics papers underneath the photo.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today I would like to share a 12×12 layout with you using a almost 46 year old picture of my family on moms side. From left to right you see my mom, uncle Evert, my great grandmother Johanna, aunt Ellen, grandpa Arthur and grandma Anna. Oh how much I love those older pictures <3 For this layout I used two collections the pretty “I Wish”& “Vintage Spring Basics”! I took out the purple papers from the last one {to match the flowers I used} and the cream and brown papers from the I Wish collection.

I cut out a V part on top of my layout to use my dusty attic zipper chippie behind the tare then I added a couple of stamps by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco on my background. Then I used a couple of Lindy’s sprays {purple & brown} to give the papers more shine then I used the script stencil to finish my work. I also stamped around the edges of my layout with a stitch stamp.

The flowers I used have just the amount of shimmer which I like and are from 49 and Market. The chipboard pieces are just inked around the edges and then sprayed with three different colors and inked around the edges again. Then I took out my brush to add some purple mica powder to give it a little shimmer.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Enjoying Outdoor collection.

So Sweet by Pascale B

I started by priming the background with clear gesso. When dry, I sprayed some ink on a plastic bag, then I put my page on the plastic bag. I repeat the process twice with two different ink: one brown, one purple.

So Sweet by Pascale B

When the inks were dry, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

So Sweet by Pascale B

I cut a few papers to add under the photo.

I added a few flowers and leaves that I glued with a 3D gel. Then I added a few Art Stones.

When everything wad perfectly glued, I added more color as well as some random stamping.

Welcome and a very happy Valentine’s Day to you wherever you live in the world.

May your day be filled with love, flowers and chocolate, lots and lots of chocolate………..!

Tina O with you here today to share my next Maja Design creation. The title for this layout was taken from a beautiful beautiful quote I found in a big box of rub-ons this morning, one I had not heard of before. But it will be one that I use again one day soon. It goes……

“Love wasn’t put in your heart to stay, love isn’t love until it’s given away”

2017-02-14 Valentines Day 039 (796x800)

For my scrapbook layout project here today I kept everything very clean indeed. I did a simple stamped border with embossing powders. Again as always I have added in some fussy cut elements from the Summertime (In the Garden) – Smell the roses patterned paper.

2017-02-14 Valentines Day 047 (800x600)

I had the photo printed of twice in two differing sizes and then layered them one on top of the other. I framed one photo with the Summertime (In the Garden) Die Cut frames. The centre was cut from this and then used behind the back of my chipboard window. So cute!!

Summertime-P1

2017-02-14 Valentines Day 048 (800x600)

I have added in some gorgeous lace that has been cut up and layered sometimes 4 times over itself. Some of the lace was left a little distressed to keep with a shabby feel.

2017-02-14 Valentines Day 051 (600x800)

I have used lots of yummy Dusty Attic chipboards for this project. They were simply covered with Crackle Paste and coloured with China Black H2O’s, and a little distress crackle and some Star Dust Stickles.

2017-02-14 Valentines Day 053 (600x800)

I used a Sizzix Die-Cut for my title “Love”. I layered it up a couple of times and dressed similarly to the other chipboards but I left it a little darker so it could stand out on the page. I also added in some handmade accetates to add to the layout another layer.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed your time here. Stay tuned there will be more again tomorrow. Until then happy scrapping.Tina-sign

 

Cherish the time spent together

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today it’s my turn again on this lovely blog and i’d like to share a 12×12 layout using several beautiful Maja Design paper collections. This time I have used a picture of my little family this picture makes me smile because hubby didn’t want to have his sunglasses on and now it looks like he needs to poop lol….

20170128_132215_HDR1

For my layout I used a whole bunch of new {well for me they are new} stamps from 49 and Market for the background. but also for my chipboard pieces. I just love the way this layout turned out because purple is my favorite color. The chipboard are all by Dusty Attic and I colored them with two different color distress ink + Faber Castell gelatos fig. Also I used some of the cute lavender prills…..and some paste with a stencil.

The flowers are by Little Birdie and Prima Marketing I was planing on using some amazing shimmer flowers by 49 and Market but somehow I ended up with these…..I really love the brown background sheet I used because of the text on it and that you can use it for any occasion.

For the first time I actually used a blending tool to do the colors on the background except the purple Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray I used it was totally different for me but great to do. I also cute out two sizes Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry doily’s to add behind different parts of my layout to give it more flair.
