Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring Camilla her beautiful girls on a 12 by 12 layout using the two Maja Design collections “I Wish” & “Summertime” I really love to combine those two. I took the brown out of the first collection and the blues from the second to compliment their pretty dresses. This layout has some playful circles {which would totally fit with the sweet girls on the picture} on them and some lovely flowers by Petaloo and My Little Birdy, I also added some new Dusty Attic chipboard designs.

I had a lot of fun using a bunch of mixed media products on my layout like sprays, stamps especially the stamps by Gabrielle Pollacco from 49 and Market. Don’t you just love this picture?? Camilla you have such lovely girls kind of jealous with a teenager boy in my household lol….

I also used a new stencil by Dusty Attic to compliment my layout and some blue spray by Lindy’s and prills…all the stitch parts are with a sewing machine but the stitches on the picture are by hand.

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.

Layout

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

May your Christmas be filled with lots of happiness, peace and love!

Mary here with you today and I have a layout to share with you. I used papers from the ”I Wish” collection which matched perfectly the beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. Is there anyone who doesn’t believe on Santa? I still believe… and this photo was just perfect for a Christmasy post. But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Happy Holiday” paper and I made the layers behide my photo with torn papers from the ”I wish we will deck the halls”, the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas”. I also placed some pieces from an old book and two photos from the ”I wish – Ephemera”.

Close up 2

I applied on the center of my paper white gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Before it gets dried I heat embossed it with ”Purely White” embossing powder. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Bayou Boogie Gold” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with 13arts white splash ink.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the frame and the floral chipboards with ”Desert Moon Copper Pine”, the words and the dotted baubble chippies with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

As a final touch, I made some splatters with white splash ink and when dried I added some bronze microbeads.

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Happy New year!!!

See you again in two weeks!

Goodmorning everyone,

Today I will show you my first layout with the super pretty/grungy new “I Wish” collection. As all the collections by Maja Design this one is also very versatile and I used it for non Christmas or wintery layout, actually I made this layout for my colleague {as a surprise I am going to give it to her next Tuesday}. She went to France last September and took a bunch off wonderful picture like this one… I am a hugh sucker for castles, old places, ruins etc so I thought let me use one of these pictures and surprise her.

The flowers I used are from Little Birdie, Dusty Attic and some lilies from a unknown manufacture. These lilies are really lovely to use because you can bent them in every way you want to I used the one my last layout too….. The chipboard pieces are all inked, aged & embossed and are all Dusty Attic!

I used both the 6×6 paper pad as the 12×12 collection to make my layout. I added some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays & embossing powders and also some stamps and at the end some crackle paste and some art stones {mini & medium}, glass glitter & metal pieces by Finnabair.
