Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basic collection. I chose a photo of the Daum Venus aux Tiroirs by Salvador Dali.
I stamped here and there with a grey ink before priming the background with clear gesso. I added also a very thin layer of white gesso to tone down the blue.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and Paper texture paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkle two embossing powders: one pearl, the other silver that I heat set.
Then, I added some colors: black ink, white ink, and steel mica to add some contrast.
While the inks were drying, I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored with a blue ink and embossed the big ones. I covered the other ones with a silver foil. I colored some flowers in blue.
I cut some papers in the Home for Holidays collection to add under the photo. Before gluing all the embellishments, I stamped some text here and there with a black ink.
To finish the layout, I added silver microbeads and glitters.

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basics. I worked with a photo I’ve taken during an event at the Château de l’Islette (Loire Valley, France).
Next, I added a second design with a second stencil and paper paste. While the paper paste was still wet I sprinkled two embossing powders that I heated set.
I die cut different leaves in a vellum paper and in a watercolor paper. I embossed them with the same powders.
I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments: some sisal, a few flowers whose hearts I’ve changed, some paper clay elements, the leaves and some crystals.
To finish the layout I stamped again with a text stamp.

Hello again Sweet Maja fans.
As you could read in yesterdays post of Maja , Maja Design is one of the sponsors of the More Than Words challenge and some of us Maja girls had the honour to make some inspirational
work for the main challenge.
The subject is Memories and in addition you need to uses frames.
Most memories for me are precious, especially this picture of my two kids. My son has autism so not really a cuddler and doesn’t really like physical contact.
I wanted a nice picture from the both of them and he spontaneously gave her a big hug. Although they are grown up now ,this still is one of my favorite pictures.
I used some raisinframes I once bought in our local dollar store, added some embellies and flatback pearls
Tucked some small frames behind the flowers
And a little frame peeping through a tear in the paper with a clock symbolizing how fast time goes by.
Thank you for visiting today
I hope I gave you some inspiration with this Lay out, Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for some new gorgeous work of one of the other Maja Girls.
the papers I used are from the vintage summer basics, flowers from Wild orchid crafts and the frames come from the local dollarstore.
Today I’m up on Maje Design blog with a new layout featuring the Celebration collection. I chose a photo of my father with his parents and his sister taken in 1959.
I tore the Champagne sheet in three pieces, and I glued them to the Anniversary. Then, I stamped the background with a brown ink before priming it with clear gesso.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste. I let it dry naturally.
I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper, that I colored with green and brown inks.
I cut a few papers to add under the photo as well as sisal. I started to build the composition with different elements: flowers, doily’s scraps, leaves and a black street sign.
When happy, I colored lightly the background with green, brown and pink inks.
To finish the layout I added some microbeads.

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,
Yesterday some of us at the Maja Design creative team are guests designers at the More Than Words challenge blog! I totally love this months challenge because I love using frames and the word memories on my layouts as much as I can. For this layout I used the always amazing “Denim & Friends” collection. If you click on the pink words above it will take you to the link at their blog.
For the frames and the text I used some beautiful The Dusty Attic chippies which I colored with gesso, acrylic paints and rust paste. First I added a layer of clear gesso on my background sheet later on I added some lindy’s spray after that I added a script stemp and a stencil with some crackle paste. The flowers are by 49 and Market & Little Birdie.
I used some clear gesso on my background sheets after that I added some white spray that I moved from the left to the right with a brush. When that dried I took a script stamp with some grey ink and stamped it randomly on my background after that I added a stencil with paste.
At the end I added some art stones and some of the clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.
