Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you my mini layout 🙂 Why I decided to create a little bit smaller version? I adjusted the size of the work to the Instax photo.

This time I used the “Denim&Friends” Collection – it fits perfectly with the b&w picture.

It is really nice idea to keep the memories from the holiday. I will have this mini layout close to my office desk xD Hope you will like my work. Hugs, Paulina

Hello our blog fans. Today I created for you a card with the “Denim & Friends” Collection. My idea was to make something in the blue colours. This collection fits here perfectly !  I created the background by cutting the tag from the paper and applied some structure paste by the mask. I also found a big paper flower and cut it for two smaller peaces. Next I added chipboard, leaves, paper owl ,some splashes and my card was ready.

I felt in love with these colours! Especially with the turquoise. Hope you will like it too. Hugs, Paulina

29, you said?? ;)

Hi everyone! Today I am back with an easel card. I have used one of my favorite collections for my card, the Denim & Friends collection. The card was made for a colour challenge at the Norwegian card magazine Ett Trykk, with the colours mint and turquoise. I tried to find some suitable Maja papers to fit the challenge.

The cute image is from Magnolia and the Denim Collection, and I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. The dies used are also from Magnolia.

The texts are from Ett Trykk.

Under you can view the card from the side. I made it for my friend’s 40th anniversary.

I have made the flowers myself. I have placed them both on the upper part of the card, and on the lower part. So when it is open, it looks like the flowers are together in a way.

Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.

I lay the flowers down on a newspaper, and spray them with water (the flower dies are from Magnolia).

Then I curl them up, and let them to dry.

When they are dry, I curl them up again, and place them together with some Wild Orchid Crafts stamens in the middle. Here comes a list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Blog!

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose a photomontage I made inspired by the painting ” Evening Falls ” by Magritte.

I primed the background with clear gesso. Then, I added some stamping with two inks and stamps. Next, I added a design with a clear crackle paste and a stencil.

While the crackle paste was drying, I colored some chipboards with different inks. I colored the flowers with a silver ink.

Next, I colored the background with different inks.

I printed the title on a photo paper and I used the same inks to alter it. Then I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.

To finish the layout, I added some glass glitter and microbeads.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Denim and Friends collection. I chose to work with a photo of a carrelet: a typical fishing cabin that can be found in the Gironde’s estuary.

I painted the back of a stencil with different acrylic paints. When happy with the result, I put the stencil on the background and I added immediately some heavy gesso through it. The paint showed through the heavy gesso.

While the background was drying, I colored some moss with a brown ink and some seeds with different acrilyc paints.

I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored some of them with a brown ink and the others with the same acrylic paints I used on the background.

I cut a piece of burlap and a paper to add under the photo. And I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel.

To finish the layout, I added some Art stone that I colored with a grey ink.
