Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here , it’s my turn to bring you some inspiration .

I bring you this layout with a picture of my son when he was 4 years old inspired by the moodboard of this month.

As you might know or maybe not the challenge is for 2 months this time so still loads of time to enter.

He made his first drawing  that of a car on our garden table with chalks that are meant to use on the sidewalk or floor outside .

Of course I was not really happy with him drawing on my table but he was so proud of it ,an me my self as well .

for this layout I used some left overs from the vintage baby collection.

The one with the blue stars that I used as a background was just a little to small to cover the cardstock I used as base  , so I torn it in two and connected it again with some sewing.

I added some buttons to the twine for a playful effect.

I hope you like my layout.

Have a lovely day

The Stag Man

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Ska vi ta en Fika? collection I chose a photo I’ve taken during an event at the castle of l’Islette (Loire Valley, France).

The Stag Man by Pascale B.

I stamped randomly with a black ink before priming the background with clear gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and clear crackle paste.

When the paste was dried, I splattered some white gesso and different metallic paints. Next, I replaced the stencil and I added some waxes on top of the crackle paste.

I die cut some leaves and a doily. I painted the vines with different acrylic paints and the summer leaves with waxes.

I painted a few flowers with metallic paints as well as the doily in violet. I colored also some Art Stones with a black ink.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glued all the embellishments.

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

So nice of you to visit the Maja Design blog today, it’s been a long time since I last created something about three months I think. Not that I didn’t want to but my little family was struggeling with some issues and now we are all on the mend again with me having more time to get creative yeahh…. For today I would like to show you a layout that has been on my desk for that last three months {in pieces tho…}. I used two of my favorite collections Nyhavn & Denim and Friends.

On this layout I used some pretty lace from Tresors de Luxe, I also added a stencil with some paste and ink with a script stamp by our very own Pascale. The picture I got from pinterest. My uncle from Florida brought me some pearl bling when he visited last May that I used one this layout aswell.

I got myself a new phone and I am still figuring out how I can make my pictures look like the actual colors as my layouts are. So some of the close ups look a bit yellow sorry for that.

Maja Design papers used: Denim & Friends: Fashion & Sunbleached, Nyhavn: a dockside in bloom.


  

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo

Hello Sweeties

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.

Blue Venus by Pascale B.

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.

Hello Sweeties

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.
