Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Today I have a layout to share featuring one of my most favourite collections, Denim & Friends. It is so great for masculine projects, and was just perfect for the photos of my younger son being so happy and proud about wearing the same T-shirt as his daddy 🙂

I first layered blue papers in the background to make a nice clear contrest against the woodboard paperthat matched the background of the photos. I distressed all the edges.

I addded the title made of various stickers and also used chipboard stars to mat and mount the photos a bit:

I added various metal embellishments:

…but also some flowers and druzy stones: who says boys don’t like a little bling? 😉 But not to make it too sweet I splashed some black ink here and there as the finishing touch:

Here’s the list of the supplies I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Blue Fern Studios, Petaloo; stickers: Prima, American Crafts; chipboard: Latarnia Morska; clockface and game spinner: Tim Holtz; bling, gears: my stash.

 

I really like the way the layout turned out – what do you think?

See you later!

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

How nice of you to visit the blog, today I would like to share a 12×12 layout with you using a almost 46 year old picture of my family on moms side. From left to right you see my mom, uncle Evert, my great grandmother Johanna, aunt Ellen, grandpa Arthur and grandma Anna. Oh how much I love those older pictures <3 For this layout I used two collections the pretty “I Wish”& “Vintage Spring Basics”! I took out the purple papers from the last one {to match the flowers I used} and the cream and brown papers from the I Wish collection.

I cut out a V part on top of my layout to use my dusty attic zipper chippie behind the tare then I added a couple of stamps by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco on my background. Then I used a couple of Lindy’s sprays {purple & brown} to give the papers more shine then I used the script stencil to finish my work. I also stamped around the edges of my layout with a stitch stamp.

The flowers I used have just the amount of shimmer which I like and are from 49 and Market. The chipboard pieces are just inked around the edges and then sprayed with three different colors and inked around the edges again. Then I took out my brush to add some purple mica powder to give it a little shimmer.
