Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Sofiero paper collection. I chose a photo of my family: my grandmother, my father, my aunt and unfortunately I’m not sure who the other two are.

Family by Pascale B.

I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I cut a few papers from the Vintage Romance 6×6 pad that I glued on the background. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso.

I added a design with a stencil and different pastes: clear crackle, white crackle, and white stone. When dry, I added some color with Iris Potion Sparks paint that I watered down.

I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the vine with Raven Sparks and the leaves with Twinkling H2Os. Then I covered them with the Antique Brillance Amethyst Magic. I added some wax on the background too to add a vintage look.

I colored some flowers with a spray made of Primary Element and water. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with an Archival ink and with the Raven Sparks. I added a little bird house that I colored with the wax too.

To finish the layout I added some micro beads.

Goodmorning lovelies,

It’s such a blessing to post on this blog and today I am here to show you two tall cards I created with a bunch of Maja Design collections. I don’t even know how many of them because both cards made out of leftover papers I really enjoy using my scraps every once in a while! I really enjoy the month March not only because it was my birthday {and hubby’s too} yesterday but I really love how spring is sneaking up on us. Did you see the gorgeous spring mood board yesterday on the blog? If not please check the ladies made some pretty amazing work on that mood board wow…..

First card is called “Hello Love” and this card has at least three collections in it like “Enjoying Outdoors”, “Vintage Spring Basics” & can you see the other one? These cards are all made with dies so you can really see the beautiful Maja Design collections at it’s best.

Second card is called “Groovy Summer” I really am longing for Summer since this is my most favorite season of the year but here in The Netherlands that will take some time before we can put our winter coats away sadly. This card is made with just one collection which is one of my all time favorites “Life by the Sea” both cards are the same size about 8,5″ inches tall and 4,5″ inches wide.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Enjoying Outdoor collection.

So Sweet by Pascale B

I started by priming the background with clear gesso. When dry, I sprayed some ink on a plastic bag, then I put my page on the plastic bag. I repeat the process twice with two different ink: one brown, one purple.

So Sweet by Pascale B

When the inks were dry, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

So Sweet by Pascale B

I cut a few papers to add under the photo.

So Sweet by Pascale B

I added a few flowers and leaves that I glued with a 3D gel. Then I added a few Art Stones.

So Sweet by Pascale B

When everything wad perfectly glued, I added more color as well as some random stamping.

Goodmorning Maja fans,

Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….

20170210_092116_HDR1

It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.

“Dream with your eyes wide open” by Tina Ollett

Well hello to you and a very very Happy New Year!! I certainly hope 2017 is kind to you and blesses you with many wonderful suprises.

Tina O with you today to share with you my first Maja Project for the year!!

Unfortunately the start of 2017 has not been so kind to me. I had a small incident whereby I dislocated my shoulder…..arghhhhhh. So this typing is done one handed (lefthanded) with my other in a sling. Scrapping has been somewhat difficult and let’s just say it takes twice as long to do things! So I am hoping for a very speedy recovery. But with that being said I still got to meet my deadline and here it is…..

“Dream with your eyes wide open”

Dream with your eyes wide open Main Photo (800x795)

My youngest girl just adores our fur family and every chance I get, I photograph her with them. I shot this photo last week with our beautiful boy Rafael and I just adore it. My project here today was created using Maja Design’s “Enjoying Outdoors” collection. This was one of my very first collections to choose when I first come on board Maja. I so love all the earthy tones combined with the pinks and purples. For my background I chose to use “Woodlands”. I preped the background with clear gesso and some Crackle texture paste through the Kaisercraft 12 x 12 Damask Stencil. I also did a small amount of stamping with some Walnut Stain distress ink.

2017-01-03 January 021 (800x600)

I used Maja Designs Enjoying Outdoors both front and back to create my layered background for the photo. I tore and distress these papers and I also added in torn journaling cards and tags from the Enjoying Outdoors Tags & Journaling sheet. I tucked in some torn paper and white doilies around the photo matting to help start my page off. You can see some of the layering I did above.

2017-01-03 January 028 (800x600) (800x600)

Above and below you will see that I have used quite a bit of chipboard . I used the Dusty Attic String Frame to frame my photo which I printed off in a sepia tone. The String Frame was inked in Walnut Stain Distress Ink and coated with a small amount of Distress Crackle Paint to highlight and deepen the colour. I then wrapped moss and green florists wire around the String Frame. This was then adhered to the photo.

2017-01-03 January 029 (800x600)

You can see the string frame above.

2017-01-03 January 026 (600x800)

Another view of the string frame wrapped in moss. You can also see here some of the foliage chipboards that I added into the flower cluster. These were dressed the same as the string frame but with just a hint of Forest Moss Distress Ink added in.

2017-01-03 January 018 (800x600)

I love this title chipboard I have used here…..It would have to be a favourite quote of mine.

“Dream with your eyes wide open”

This was dressed in Antique White acrylic and then I inked the edges with some Walnut Stain and Forest Moss to compliment the rest of the project.

These little tags from the Tags and Journaling sheet are just gorgeous and I love adding in little elements with numbers that just don’t mean anything, but is a lovely addition to add interest.
