Lenet here and today I bring you something totally different .
Soon it will be Halloween , we don’t really celebrate this here in the Netherlands but it is done more and more every year.
Spooky parties , tours , decorating you see it more and more. but no trick or treat .
We have something simular in some parts on november the 11th called Sint Maarten. as soon as it gets dark children carrying lanterns the made at school ,
go singing from door to door collecting sweets. always very fun to see al those nice lanterns and hear them singing , especially the little children.
Unfortunately no Sint Maarten or Halloween this year due corona / covid.
But that didn’t keep me from making this Halloween card. Although Maja doesn’t have a specific Halloween collection, the purple from Enjoying the Outdoors and the orange-ish one from Little Street Cafe are perfect for this.
So with any further ado here is my Halloween card.
The witch is Wanda a stamp from Waltzingmouse the sentiment Happy Halloween is from the same set. The frame is made with the Ornate Frame sizzix die from Tim Holtz altertions.
The bats are made with dies from some dutch brand I don’t know.
Today, I would like to share a new layout made for my September inspiration using papers from the gorgeous ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection. As usual, I’ve also used 49 and Market flowers, Dusty Attic chipboard and Finnabair moulds to embellish my page and achieve a romantic and elegant feeling.
As always, I found my photo on Pinterest and before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
I used the back side of the ”Beautiful Trees” paper and made several layers with torn pieces of the ”Having Tea in the Sun” paper on the background. I also used the back side of the same paper to mat my photo. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with the Finnabair White Gold icing paste and a stencil. When the paste dried, I used the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Edelweiss Moss Green and Greased Lightnin’ Green sprays to add color.
Next, I applied paper paste on the chipboards to make them textured and painted them with the Finnabair Golden Moss acrylic paint.
Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers.
It’s Mary here today and I have a new layout to share made for my October inspiration. I have also prepared a VIDEO TUTORIAL so you can watch all the details.
As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I choose some papers from the gorgeous ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
For my background I used the back side of the ”Spending Time” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.
Next I colored my page with some Lindy’s Gang sprays and made some stamping here and there.
The Dusty Attic chipboards I used were painted with several Finnabair acrylic paints.
When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.
Good morning, dear visitors to the Maja Design blog!
Autumn has just begun and although we can still enjoy some warmer days, nights become colder and colder and leaves turn yellow and orange, a sure sign of the autumn season. And so for today I have an autumn wedding layout to share:
For this page I decided to keep the colour palette of the photo: yellow, pale orange, delicate green and pastel brown. This is perhaps not my frequent choice of colours, but it was surprisingly nice to work with. First I built the background using papers from the Enjoying Outdoors and Vintage Summer Basics collections. The I added some brick pattern onto the top sheet using a Prima stencil and crackle paste:
I kept the design rather simple, with a flowery heart matting the photo as the only decorative element. I added some white resin embellishments among the flowers and some theme words describing marriage features around the photo. Under the heart I attached a delicate lace bow. The heart is also matted with frayed cheesecloth.
The layout is quite dimensional and perfect to go into a shadowbox-like frame.
I really like the way it turned out, light and delicate with some touches of bright colours, with the photo still in focus. What do you think?
And here’s the list of my supplies:
