Well hello there Maja Design Fans,

Today it’s me again on this lovely blog to show you a layout I have created with the newest collection. I really enjoy creating with it because it’s so versatile. Lately I am hooked on vintage pictures especially from vintage clothing but also lace umbrella’s, beautiful hats with flowers and amazing dresses they made in the sixties and before and after…so I thought why not make a layout with it, it totally went great with the colors of the “Celebration”collection and the new flowers from 49 and Market what a wonderful combination that is right?

For the background sheet I used the Party bs sheet on that sheet I added some script stamp and later on I added a brick stamp after that I used some pink spray and to soften that up I sprayed with white too. The I ripped the sheet with the flowers “Good times”up and added them on both side the left a little smaller then the right one behind the flower sheet I also ripped the pink sheet to create more demension.

The chipboard I added was already black I just used my waxes on them the give them a shimmer and more depth and also a little color so they would not look out of place. I also used my favorite stencil on my background and at the end I added some crystal drops by nuvo in the color antique rose {which is my favorite} on that same stencil on the round parts that is….

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Party, The Table is Set, Good Times and the 6×6 paper pad.

   

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here.

Love xoxo

Hello  dear Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to inspire you and this time I have a tutorial of how I made this lay out for you.

For this one I used the beautiful papers of the summertime collection.

 

For the background I used the backside of Flowers every where. I high-lighted the area where want my to make my composition with some gesso

While the gesso is drying  I cut out some roses out of the smell the roses sheet, those I will tuck behind the picture and papers later.

 

When the gesso is dry  I made splatters with  Lindy’s flat fabio”s sidewalk chalk and queen of hearts red.

Than I added some random stamping when the splatters were dry.  To see what  the stamp and what color ink I like and want to use,

I did some test stamping at the place that will be covered with the papers. This way I can have a better look at what feels right for me.

I decided to use Pink petunia from versaMagic.

After choosing the papers I want behind my picture, cutting them in the right size I distress the edges with mt paperdistresser from Making Memories

I have this one for I think 10 years used it a lot and really love it. I tried other distressers  when the were introduced  but always went back to using this one.

For sticking the papers on to the papers I use  foamtape because it gives your layout some demension.

I always stick it in the middle so you can tuck flowers or other embellies behind it later on.

Because i own a lot of supplies I never used I gave myself the challenge to try to use some oldies on every project I make from this layout on..

This time I took these Prima flowers. I crunched them to these flowers and  tucked them with the roses .

I love the the way the look now so I’m sure I will use this more often in the future.

   

After sticking the papers and picture on to the background , I embellished  it with roses from Prima, badges from cuts2luv , pearls from the dollarstore.

The leaves are made using  Monochromes shade of Sofiero – Celery/Sage with dies from My favorite things and the swirly ones I think from Marianne Design.. and l tucked the roses I cut out earlier between the layers of the papers.

The edge with the little hearts is made with a punch from Martha Stewart. the word Sweet is a chippy from dusty attic that I colored with black embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you .

Goodmorning sweeties,

My husband’s aunt has three beautiful daughters and the oldest one just has a daughter herself {so there will a layout with the little Fenna really soon}, they always take pictures together and I love using them on my work. The one you see on the left is the oldest and her name is Annelijn, the one in the middle is Lidewij and the youngest is Marielot you see her on the right….For this layout I used the pretty NEW “Celebration” collection with a touch of yellow from the “Vintage Spring Basics”collection. The chipboards I used are by The Dusty Attic and the flowers are the new ones mixed with the older 49 and Market collections.

First I cut the Anniversary sheet in half then I put the outer edges together and cut about two cm’s from the outer edges what first were the inner edges {can you still follow lol} Then I turned the sheet 90 degrees after that I added a pretty grammar stamp by our lovely Pascale and a script stamp by Gabrielle. Later on I sprayed with some lindy’s and added a hearts stencil to my background sheet. All de edges of the paper I inked and distressed. Some of the chipboard pieces were already black and the other ones I gessod black and at the end I used a paintbrush with some white gold wax.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Anniversary & Glamour, Vintage Spring Basics: 1st of March. Mono Celebration-Pearl & Mono Celebration-Old Brass.

  

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here. Did you already enter in our moodboard? We would love to see your work 😉

Have a lovely day!4

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Celebration collection. I chose another photo of my grandmother also taken in the 20’s.

First I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added several colors: each color was added with a different stencil.

Next, I stamped randomly with the same paints.

I used a mold with paper clay to make some embellishments. I colored some flowers as well as some die cut leaves.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.

I decided to add another design with a gold paint mixed with texture powder to obtain a 3D paste.

To finish the layout I added some Art Stones.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Joyous Winterdays collection. I chose to work with a photomontage I’ve made, inspired by The Castle of The Pyrénée by René Magritte. Oh, I forget to tell you that there is a step-by-step video showing you how I make this layout.

Mont Saint Michel by Pascale B.

I stamped randomly the background with two of my stamps Pascale’s Form and Pascale’s Grammar with a black Archival ink. Next, I primed the background with clear gesso.

When dry, I used different stamps to add some color to the background with different inks. I finished with splatters of the same inks. When happy with the result, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

While the paste was drying, I colored the Archival board with Magicals. Next, I sprinkled them with an embossing powder to add some interest.

I colored the flowers with two inks: one peach, one vintage rose.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glue all the embellishments with a 3D gel. To finish the layout I added some Art Stone and microbeads.
