Hello my friends!
It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the ”Vintage Summer Basics” collection.
A mysterious layout in blue tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
I used as the main paper for my background the ”1914” and I made another layer on it with the backside of the ”1902”, which I had torn it and removed a piece from the center. Then, with the torn piece from the ”1902” I matted my photo.
I primed my background with clear gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua”, ”Blue Hawaiian Blue” and ”Hydrangea Blue”.
I heat embossed the ”Flourish Adornment Set 5” chipboards with ”Bavarian blue” Lindy’s embossing powder. The title was also embossed with the ”Cafe’ au lait” powder.
The chipboards I used are 2crafty and all the flowers are Prima Marketing.
To finish, I added some turquoise glass beads with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.
That’s all for today, my friends!
Thank you for stopping by!
Hello Maja fans, thanks so much for dropping by. Today I have another new layout to share with you using some papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I used the “1914” paper for my background & then added this delightful striped one from the Vintage Spring Basics called, “4th April” to both the top & bottom edges. Even though it is a different collection, I think it works great.
I have also made a handmade flower to add to my flower cluster above the photo, using the same stripe “4th April” paper. I really like adding some handmade flowers in the same papers as my layout to add extra accents to the page, plus it gives it a more custom made look I think.
I have created a mixed media background & the Maja papers are just perfect for this because they are so beautifully thick & they handle it so well without warping etc.
I have layered strips of both the “1902” & the “1904” papers underneath my photos, but unfortunately after adding lots of gesso & mists, it is a little hard to see them in the photos, but little bits of their colours & patterns peek out here & there.
All of the chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard.
On my background I have also added lots of stamping, fibers, micro beads in both blues & silver, pearls, pearl sprays & finished of with lots of flowers.
These are the four papers I have used. Well thats all for today. I will see you back here again in two weeks time.
