Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today to share my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”I Wish” collection. I really love these papers because although it is a Christmas collection can easily be used in non-Christmas pages. Take for example mine…

This time I made a soft romantic page with this beautiful photo, which as always found on Pinterest.  And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

For my background, I used the ”I wish to play in the Snow” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”I wish you a Happy new Year”  and the ”I wish for frosty mornings” papers. I also placed some pieces from an old book and made a fussy cutting on some vintage clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics ”No XVI” paper.

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I heat embosed the paste with ”Golden Angel Wings” Lindy’s powder to make the texture more obvious. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cowabunga Copper” and ”Cape Cod Coral” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

I heat embossed the floral chipboards and the title with ”Byzantine Bronze”. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

As a final touch, I added some bronze microbeads and some Prima Memory Hardware – Glass Pearls.

Hello Maja fans and welcome to the blog today!

This my second christmasy project using the ”I wish” collection and this time I made a layout. I can’t believe that we are already so close to Christmas… I love that season and I’m full with the Christmas spirit! And, that beautiful photo from pinterest was just perfect for the layout I had in my mind… of course, I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

I used the ”I wish those memories will last” as my main paper and I torn it vertical on the left side. I placed under it, three layers of two papers, one from the same paper, one from the backside of the same paper and lastly one of the ”I wish for frosty mornings”.  Among the papers Ι added some lace and a few pieces of doilies.

I designed my background with modeling paste and a stencil over a coat of clear gesso.  I colored it with ”Dark Chocolate Truffle” and ”Clam Bake Beige” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists.  I also made splatters with white 13arts Splash ink to highlight it a little bit. When dried I made some random stamping and the background was ready to glue everything down.

I heat embossed the chipboards with two powders, first with the ”Desert Moon Copper Pine” and then with the ”Cafe au Lait”.  All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

As a final touch, I added some mica flakes in ”Henna” and some ”Melange Art Pebbles”.

Hello Maja fans!!!

Mary is up on the blog today and I have a Christmas tag to share with you. This is my first project made with the brand new ”I Wiss” collection and I have to say that I really loved it!!! These papers are simply amazing!!!

Close up 1

I used two papers for my background, the ”I wish those memories will last” and for the second layer the ”I wish for frosty mornings”. I applied modeling paste with a stencil to create some texture. Then, I made some splatters with ”Dark Chocolate Truffle” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mist and some random stamping with a script stamp and ”Coffee” Archival ink .

Close up 2

I heat embossed the title and the ”Corner Sweet Holly” chipboard, which I cut in two pieces, with ”Midnight Bronze” embossing powder and the little birds on it with ”King Midas Gold”. With the same powder I also embossed the ”Flower Chain” chippie. The snowflakes were embossed with two powders, first with ”Silver Moon Turquoise” and then with ”Golder Angel Wings”.

Close up 3

  I made a floral frame with a die and the ”I wish for peace and joy” paper and placed it on my cluster under my main flower. A little sisal, colored with the same mist I used before, completed my cluster. Some microbeads and glass glitter and my christmas tag was ready.

All the chipboards used were 2Crafty and the flowers were Prima Marketing.
