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

You know I love the Denim & Friends collection as it’s just perfect for all masculine projects! But if you think it’s JUST a masculine collection, I hope to prove you wrong 😉

Yes, a totally girly stuff! Soft and romantic frame with three of my nieces in the photo.

First I assembled a chipboard shadowbox frame and then covered it with Maja papers, inside and outside, inking and distressing all the pieces. For the front coevr I chose to colour with mists as it is too intricate to cover it with papers.

Then I placed a chipboard clockface in the bacgkround, added the photo and surrounded it with embellishments – hand-cut tags, a tiny banner with an opalescent acrylic heart:

…mulberry flowers, resin heart and bird, a butterfly flair button:

…a delicate twig winding around the frame side:

The title is a chipboard piece too:

I also added a flower cluster on the outer side, addding guipure lace:

I’ll add some journaling on the back, which is for now covered with papers:

 

 

 

And here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: shadowbox frame, sentiment: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; resin embellishments: Prima, button: Lemoncraft; mists: Tattered Angels, golden metallic paint: Martha Stewart.

 

So what do you think of such version of a masculine collection? 🙂 I really like the way it turned out and how the patterns compliment the photo.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Hi Maja Fans, today I have a frame to share with you.
A couple of weeks ago I found a ugly plastic frame in a bargain store which I decided would be perfect to alter, and here is how it turned out.
I began by applying gesso to the frame, this was because it was very cheap shiny plastic and I wanted to prime the surface so my glue and paper would stick to it.
I chose the paper Vintage Autumn Basics No VI to cover it because I love the colour and pattern on this paper
I fussy cut the clocks and flowers from the Vintage Autumn Basics Papers No XVI and No II. I tucked these images amongst my flowers and embellishments.
The photo I chose to go inside the frame is of my Grandmother on her wedding day with the Parents
