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
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:
Jeans & T-shirt
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Blog!
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.

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.
