Welcome Maja friends. I hope this post has found you happy and well. Tina with you today to share a layout project created using a mix of papers from differing Maja Design collections.

I have called this “My Sunshine”.

My background page was made using the Fika’s Sockerkaka and Crea Diems Sin lyckas smed. I created a framework 2.5 cm around the Sockerkaka paper and distressed it heavily. I then added Crea Diems Sin lyckas smed behind Sockerkakato allow the blue to shine through.

Vintage Pink

The sheet of Det skrivna består was cut into rectangular mats in differing sizes. I also added some rectangular mattings in differing sizes using Monochromes shades of Denim in Vintage Pink. These were all distressed heavily and randomly adhered together. I mounted the whole piece including the photo upon some 3D mounting tape and adhered it to the left of the layout.   

I have used this adorable photo of my eldest daughter who just turned 18 this month. And because she has just turned that fabulous number I have used the Skeleton clockfaces to represent time gone past. I used two clocks from the collection and cut the smaller one in half to sit at the right of my layout.

The clockfaces were primed with white gesso and then coloured with Inka Golds in Hydrangea.

I have also used a panel of the Heart Attack Small.  For this project I decided to simply emboss the full panel with Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel from Stampendous. I cut the panel into quite a few pieces and layered them around and in between layers of the Maja Design papers and lace and of course the other chipboards and flowers. Some of the itty bitty hearts I took out of the panel and scattered them around and through the clusters. You can see below the hearts taken out separately.

The Dusty title Sunshine was also dressed in the shabby blue enamel. You can see it above. The tiny weeny specs of gold that shine through are just so cute.

 I have used lots of distressing to highlight the layers of papers also. Some sanding of my papers was also done to create the shabby style look. You can see this above.

I have also used one half of the pack of Ornate Scrolls another one of my favourite pieces. this was cut into two and divided behind the photo. I dressed this piece in Crackle Texture Paste and coloured it a little with the Hydrangea Inka Gold and some Ranger Star Dust Stickles to make it shine.

I have also used some gorgeous Birch lace cut into segments.

And that is all from me today. Until next time take care and happy creating.

But using my precious Maja Design papers……

For this shaker card I used the pretty “Vintage Romance” collection and just plain creme card stock and a bunch of dies. I really love the dimension of the flowers that’s what the papers do because of the high quality they are.

For my third card I used the amazing “Vintage Autumn Basics” collection and for the centers of my flowers I used micro beads which I think worked out really pretty. The background sheet with the blue flowers is one of my favorite papers from this collection.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with my first post here of the year and I want to wish you all the most creative year!

It’s another photo of my father whose birthday was a few days ago. I worked with A Vintage Frost Basics collection which is perfect for winter photos.

I started to splatter watered gesso on the background. When dry, I added a design with Graphite Paste and a stencil.

While the background was drying, I distressed and inked the papers that will be under the photo.  Then I added some color to the background by splattering two colors of Twinkling H2Os and watered gesso until I was happy with the result.

1953_detail4_PB

I glued the embellishments with 3D matte gel. I covered the flowers with gesso before painting them with the same Twinkling H2Os to give them a distressed look .I added  also some silver micro beads.

To finish the composition, I added some splatters of gesso and Twinkling H2O to the title.

I wish you all a  wonderful New Year’s Eve party and see you next year 😉
