Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. Yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day’s ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too….so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don’t feel like I do now which is rushed…


I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It’s totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away….because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn’t work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.




All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray’s, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too I am totally hooked on those at the moment.





The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??




Maja Design papers used: Vintage Summer Basics collection: 1934 bs, 1899 bs & 1904 bs, Crea Diem collection: Den Oersattliga Tiden, Nyhavn collection: King’s Square.




Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my post today, and I have inspired you to play with your lovely Maja Design goodies have a lovely weekend…..

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a photo I’ve taken in Dublin of “The Wishing Hand”, an enormous bronze hand sculpture designed by Linda Brunker.

To make my background, I added first some paints on a stencil before applying it on the paper. When the stencil was still on the paper, I added some crackle paste.

When everything was dry I added some gray colors to the background.

As usual I used the Twinkling H2Os to color the leaves and the gray flowers, and I sprayed the purple ones with  a Primary Element.

I added some glass beads and micro beads to finish the layout.
