Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose one of my photo of the Chateau de Brissac (Loire Valley, France).

As usual, I primed the background with a clear gesso to protect the paper. Then I added a design with a stencil and a clear crackle paste. I let dry naturally.

In the meantime, I colored a few flowers and the leaves with different Twinkling H2O.

I colored the background with different colors of Twinkling H2O to match the colors of the photo.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo, and I glued all the flowers.

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today :)

Last time I shared my first layout(s) using the fabulous Denim&Friends collection, and I said I couldn’t stop cutting 😉

Masculine projects are usually difficult, even if you’re surrounded by boys 😉 But with this collection is just pure pleasure! Not only do you get a dozen of beautiful “masculine” patterns, but also a sheet full of men in jeans! 😉 I used two of those images to make two birthday cards for men. The first one is for a musician:

mdmasculine1

I layered several patterns in the background and added linen ribbon before I placed a guitar man image. Then I added screw-shaped brads and a music notes paper clip that can be detached and used for keeping music sheets together :)

mdmasculine4

I die-cut the sentiment and matted it with glitter cardstock, then added a piece of signature strip from one of the papers:

mdmasculine2

The other card is an 18-th birthday card:

mdmasculine3

I again layered some various patterns and placed the image on top, adding a metal charm on a piece of linen string. Then I added die-cut digits and some metal pointers:

mdmasculine5

I used the same die for the sentiment, but this time I didn’t mat it and it’s readable through the contrast between papers:

mdmasculine6

I am really pleased with the result – what do you think?

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: die: Rosy Owl, Memory Box; metal pointers: Making Memories; brads: Rayher; paper clip: Prima; acrylic gems: ScrapBerry’s; star charm, string, linen ribbon: my stash.

See you soon!

Hello our blog fans. Have you seen the new collections ?. “Denim&Friends” with new Monochromes are great! They are so universal – I have so many ideas to use them for. My today’s inspiration is a masculine card.

Denim&FriendsIt is a card for a nice young gentleman. From this papers you can create easily the masculine cards, albums etc.

Denim&FriendsI love layers … like you could already seen many times. I like to use a small details. Cut them and combine together.

Hello my dear friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you, made with the new amazing ”Denim & Friends” collection.

Oh, I love that collection!!! These papers are amazingly beautiful!!! Don’t you think?

I decided to use a paper in blue tones combined with flowers in earth colors 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.

detail 1

I used for my background the ”Worn Indigo” paper and I made some layers behide my photo with the ”Pocket Square”, the ”Wood” and the ”Blue Jeans” papers.

detail 2

I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and when it was dried I highlighted some spots with white gesso. Then, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray ”Afternoon Delight Demin”.

detail 3

I heat embossed the title with the ”Venus Violet Blue” and the pieces from the ”Interlocking Grid Panel” with the ”Bratwurst Brown” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty.

detail 4

To finish my page, I added some bronze micro beads with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

detail 5

Paper used:

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Good morning to you, dear Visitors, welcome to the Maja Design blog!

Have you ordered our latest release, the Denim & Friends collection? If not, then hurry up, it’s simply gorgeous! One of my favourite collections so far! Sooo perfect for masculine projects!

And so, when I stopped smelling and touching 😉 , I began cutting and I can’t stop! And I created this layout:

mdmboys1

I took the beautiful hemisphere map for the background, matted my photo with various papers and added some paper straws for dimension:

mdmboys3

…the flower cluster with a metal charm:

mdmboys4

…and made my title using foam metallic gold sticker letters. I also hand-cut some tags and added pieces of signature strips from papers – I love including them in my projects :)

mdmboys5

I really like the way it turned out, but I had so much fun working with this collection I couldn’t just stop after one layout 😉 And so I made another one:

mdmboys2

For a change, I used the other hemisphere for the background 😀 And started to embellish the photo. I had this “love key” for ages and finally the time has come to use it :)

mdmboys6

There’s also the flower cluster with tags and signature strips:

mdmboys7

…and a somewhat longish title 😉 using foam letters. A tip for you: if you want your small letters pop out of the patterned background, trace them around with a fine pen :)

mdmboys8

It may be a little difficult to notice, as the two maps are on two sides of the same paper – but if you have two of them you’ll see the two hemispheres match perfectly! And soooo….I combined my two layouts to make my first double page ever! :)

mdmboys

What do you think? I really like the way the two pages go together :)

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Prima, wild Orchid Crafts; letters: American Crafts, Prima; glitter ink: 13@rts; charms, paper straws: my stash

 

As I said, I can’t stop cutting these beautiful papers, so join me soon for more inspiration with Denim&Friends :)
