Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I have a another layout to share for this layout I used two pretty Maja Design collections “Enjoying Outdoors” & “Summer Crush” because both collections had the colors that I wanted to use for it which are purple/pink/peachy tones. This time I used another picture of Camilla her precious twins singing like two little diva’s. My post was for last Friday but I was really busy adding this video so I was not ready in time so I stole this Monday to post with approval of Camilla ofcours hihihi.

Oh this was such a fun layout to make I do have my favorite Maja Design collections and those are not on top of my list but I have to say I think now I will take them out more often. With my precious 49 and Market flowers it is easy to transform your layout in a flowers sea of gorgeousness. As you will see in my video I made this layout through out the day as the light changes during the movie. Have fun watching ūüėČ

Hope you enjoyed my second video ever thank you so much for watching now for the closeups:

On this layout I did some watercoloring but not with a brush but with a piece of plastic….the finishing touches that I have done on this layout are not in my video as I do intent to alter my layout when it is already finished {before I take my pictures}

Goodmorning lovelies,

Today I am up on this lovely blog using my precious Maja Design papers. In my last post I added some questions and I will give you those answers in my August 11th post,¬†the same as I give you my tutorial that day. Sorry for that but I had to deal with some serious personal¬†issues so I have not been scrapbooking as much as I wanted to. Today we will be leaving for our well deserved vacation trip for the next seven day we will be enjoying each others company at a camping ground in the south of our little country we are very excited as you can imagine…, for this post I made a 8×8 layout using only Maja Design papers, dies and a flair.

20170707_14385912

That sweet picture I got from pinterest oh boy how I love that site…here I used several Maja Design collection such as¬†Vintage Autumn Basics, Vintage Baby, I Wish and Vintage Summer Basics. The centers of my big flowers are made with foamballs that I glued on and dipped in mini prills such a lovely effect that has.

On the background I added some spray’s, stamp and paste. But I also stamped the word sweet on the picture I really do love Gabi her word stamps. What I do when making a layout with just paper and dies….firstly I will cut all the dies that I want to use in different colors then I will make the flowers and their centers and put those together.

Then I it is really easy to make it into one whole piece that you like. At the moment I am totally hooked on the amazing flairs by Cuts2luv that I will use it on almost every single project I make. I wetted my papers to disstress is a little more at the edges I also inked the edges first before I did that.

Goodmorning to you lovely Maja Design Fans,

Oh boy when Monday the new collection came to my doorstep, I so badly wanted to dig in and create but I had to wait until yesterday to do so due to work. Sometimes I wish that I could create all day and that it is my job to do so….a girl can dream right? Denim & Friends is such a wonderful collection and it has some new designs and more of a masculine rusty feel to it that I am in l.o.v.e. For this layout I used another picture of Camilla her daugthers Tyra & Freja {cuties} I totally love how they smile on this picture and the cloths they are wearing totally fits this collection. That is why the title of my layout is “All Smiles”. I attempted to use all elements that would fit with jeans like buttons, a belt and by tearing and fading the papers.

Don’t you just love the woodgrain paper <3 it’s so gorgeous. Last Monday when I was happy that my DT box came in, another thing happened “my phone” died on me and as I always take pictures of my DT work with my phone you could have imagine how upset I was when that happened. Now I have to take pictures with my old phone and it is not doing my work any justice hopefully I will have my phone back in about 20 day’s {so very long grrr}

The chipboard I used are by The Dusty Attic and I also added some new flower ranges by 49 and Market as well as their beautiful stamps designed by Gabrielle Pollacco {YOU ROCK GIRL} I also added some of her new stencils to the background sheet to give my layout more demension.

The leaves you see are firstly stamped on the monochromes papers then cut out and inked so I could place them in the flower clusters. First I gessod the chipboard pieces and then treated them with acrylic paint and added a layer of glossy accents to make it shine a little that is what I also did with the phrase on the picture.

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

For today I have another layout to share and this time it’s a mixed media layout using a bunch of mixed media techniques. When I was ready with my layout a little disaster happened half a bottle of Lindy’s Stamp Gang’s blazing black spray’s fell all over the lower left corner of my layout. Oeh la la that never happened to me before but “hey” that happens when you do not close the cap of the bottle after using it. Luckily I could fix it only not really like I intended to be….but I am very happy with the result.

20170615_202505_HDR12

I really love all the darker & white/grey papers Maja Design offers but I wish they had more because sometimes I really love to make something outside my comfort zone like this layout is. For this layout I used four collections Nyhavn, Crea Diem, Sommatider and Vintage Spring Basics.¬†This time I choose two other colors to compliment my work teal and yellow. The butterflies are stamped on the white Sitting at the dock sheet from the Nyhavn collection. Then I painted them with “Azure Sea Asters” starburst spray’s from Lindy’s Stamp Gang en then I cut them out.

The flowers are by Prima Marketing and 49 and Market. For the first time¬†in a long while¬†I haven’t used any chipboard on my work¬†wow I just saw that now lol…..I also added two flairs from “Cuts2luv and a metal plate with the word paradise on it. I am a real sucker for the beach so as you can imagine this looks like paradise to me since I moved more then an hour from the nearest beach I sometimes dream I am there “My Paradise”!

On the background of my layout I used a different mixed media technique then I normally do. I took a piece of plastic packaging and sprayed on top of that plastic and then placed it on my paper sheet then you get kind of a messy watercoloring spots on your work. I did that with the teal color but also with a yellow/gold spray. Then I stamped on top of that with different stamp sets by 49 and Market. Then I matted my picture and cut out six different sizes of squares in three pairs of two of the same papers….Kann Dig Sjalv {Crea Diem}, 1st of March {Vintage Spring Basics} and Baslakan {Sommatider}!

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring another picture of one of Camilla her little girls. When I saw this picture I totally fell in love with it and I thought “well” I need to scrap it. For this layout I used the pretty Nyhavn collection and to accent the beauitful papers I added some gorgeous pink Prima Marketing flowers from the Wild and Free collection the black flowers I added are by Petaloo. I am totally hooked on using flairs ate the moment here I also used one from Cuts2luv.

10002

First I cut a large v part out of the lighter colored paper then I stamped around the edges with the stitched stamp designed by Gabrielle Pollacco. Then I added some distressink victorian velvet with a blending tool and added some text and dod stamps to the rest of the background. Then I used two differents stencils for my layout. The chipboard pieces are by Dusty Attic and the are treated with gesso and ink.

On the stripes and dots stencil I added some black flatback gem stones to make it pop of the page, then I added some lace in the v-shape and sprayed all over my page to soften it up a little. At he end i cut out some clocks form the “Vintage Autumn Basics”collection.

At the end I also added some metal embellishments I just can’t live without those things……This was a lot of fun to make as I don’t have a daughter. These pictures make me happy thank you Camilla for using it…..
