Hello, dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made another masculine card this time. I really love mixing my tender shabby chic works with these masculine, a bit grungy projects. I prefer to use Denim and Friends collection for these type of works.

some close ups:

I love to add wood elements to my projects, I have covered the chipboard element with the frontage embossing powder.

some black accents in different textures and shapes

I have used the Denim and Friends collection:

Have a great day,

These are treasured memories

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

So nice of you to visit the Maja Design blog today, I am back again posting on this lovely blog, it’s been a while since my last post. Hope you did not miss me too much ;-). For today I have a layout to share that I made for a nice lady who contacted me because she wanted to give her parents a present for their 50th year wedding anniversary. I did replace the pictures because she did not wanted them online….on the pictures you see my parents in law.

I took the dark blues and soft yellow tones from both collections because I think that is a lovely combination. The chipboard I used are off course The Dusty Attic & the flowers are by 49 and Market. On the background I used several stencils by different companies. Let’s have a closer look.

Maja Design papers used:

 

Hope you liked my post and I let your creating juices flowing…..love to see you soon! And I wish you a wonderful day…soon I have some amazing news keep you posted.

Welcome and hello Maja Design friends. Tina Ollett here with you today to share a Christmas creation using not the new release collection but the Denim and Friends Collection. Well it is that time of the year when I get behind on absolutely everything including my Design Team work. And if I can use the quote “to kill two birds with one stone” that is exactly what I have done to ease my workload for this week. I have combined my Design Team work for Maja with the Dusty Attic Design Team work and used their Moodboard for this month. And to do this I had to use a different collection. So therefore the use of Denim and Friends.

Streetwear

Streetwear b side

My layout started with just three pieces of Streetwear from the Denim and Friends collection. I used the teal green for the base and tore the second piece using the opposite side with stars. I simply tore a section top and bottom and then roll sections after distressing and sanding my papers.

Once my background was finished I then used the leftover papers to create some matting base for my 4 x 6 portrait black and white photo. You can see above the layers of Streetwear used to do this above.

I also added in a little stamping on my project and some textures with Sand Texture paste through a stencil and also splatters of acrylic white paint.

I used distress inks mixed with gesso to colour my flowers and also some of the Dusty Attic chipboards that I selected to use for this project.

I decided at the very end of my project to add in some gorgeous laces. It just seemed a little empty without pops of white. I also added in a little distressed muslin.

Well that is all from me today. I do hope you enjoyed my post. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very safe and merry Christmas. I hope Christmas brings all the special things your heart desires.

Until next year take care.

Hi there! Not a Christmas project from me today, hope it is ok?! I just wanted to show you the tool drawer I made for a Father’s Day card. I have used the Denim & Friends collection. Here you find papers for every masculine project.

The dies are from Magnolia. As for the image. I have used Distress Ink for my colouring.

To make this I have folded a box, where the sides measures 4×8 cm and 8×8 cm.

The metal frame is from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have painted here and there with White Gesso.

I am trying to find the time to make some Christmas cards aswell, but this weekend I have been baking Christmas cookies. Maybe I will find some time this evening.

This project was also published in the magazine Ett Trykk. Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love, 

My Little Star

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

It’s been two months since I created anything with my all-time favourite Maja collection, Denim&Friends! 😀 And so I couldn’t wait any longer and made a layout for my today’s post:

I really love grid patterns, they give you a sense of using a piece of an actual document and at the same time provide some useful structure to plan your design 😉 As I like clear composition and straight lines, I really appreciate that feature of the background. To introduce the theme of the layout, I applied stars pattern with a stencil and texture paste. Then I matted the photo with a light sand-coloured sheet and added some hand-cut tags:

…the flower-embellishments cluster:

…with a piece cut off the signature strip:

…and finally the title arranged with sticker chipboard letters:

I included many star motives to refer to the title: stencilled, die-cut and art clay ones. I also added some starshine 😉 – the stencil paste is gold and I die-cut the stars in mirror gold cardstock.I think this gave the whole a coherent look both with motives and textures. What do you think?

And here’s what I used for the layout:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Crea-Nest-Lies; alpha stickers: American Crafts; cabochon, charm, sequins – my stash.

 

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and come back tomorrow for more inspiration 🙂
