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

I hope you’re having great summer so far, even though travelling has been limited and we all still need to follow the lockdown rules. But the right attitude is the key to keep us all going strong through difficult times. So hang in there, and come have a look at the project I have to share.

Today I bring you a delicate baby girl page with a photo of my little niece. She’s so tiny in the picture, so I thought I’d use a limited amount of embellishments, making the page almost clean&simple in order not to overwhelm the photo and accent that delicacy.

I used the Denim & Friends with just a touch of the Denim & Girls collection for my layout. I kept the colour palette of the photo throughout the page. I first added some doily motives with a stencil and modeling paste and then placed the photo in the centre and surrounded it with flowers, hand cut tags and cardstock butterflies. The title is also a cardstock sticker. I completed my design with sequins scattered here and there for lightness and subtle shine:

I just love the versatility of Maja Design papers that allows you to make a sweet baby layout using a msculine collection! What do you think of how the page turned out?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; flowers, stickers: Prima Marketing; sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, drop by soon for more inspiration! See you later!

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

As I think it’s quite beneficial for both personal and creative development, from time to time I decide to step outside my comfort zone and try something I haven’t tried yet or I don’t like. And today I bring you the result for the latter: a layout featuring my not-so-favourite colour palette of orange paired with purple.

For this self-challenge I used a photo of my goddaughter taken soon after she was born. I used the Little Street Cafe collection that offers some beautiful orange patterns and eased the pain with a bit of purple and kraft brown. The photo has a rustic feel, so I added a tag cut out of burlap paper, but added a gold filigree panel to relate to the title too 🙂

I also added a couple more of tags and a lot of flowers to decorate the photo, as well as a guardian angel to protect the baby 🙂

The title is arranged with cardboard letters that together with a clock button add to the rustic climate:

Apart from the gold panel, there are some opalescent sequins to add glam on the other hand:

Although it’s not my colour combo of voluntary choice, I still like the way the page turned out. What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Cherry Lynn Designs, Crea-Lies; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Fabrika Dekoru; resin angel: Prima; sequins: my stash.

Do you leave your comfort zone sometimes? Do you like the results? Tell me in the comments!

Hello Maja Fans.

Lenet here today,As we look outside in nature we can see Spring is just around the corner.  The early snowdrops are in bloom and the crocus and

grape hyacinth are showing so won”t be long to be there too.

I even saw some some Daffodils in full bloom . At the shops and markets are selling the first tulips, for me that is the real sign that it will be spring soon.

So I made you this lay out using some delicate flowers and green buds ready to burst.

Here a close up, the little dark pink flowers are real dried flowers I saved from a bouquet my Husband gave me for our 25th anniversary.

so I got flowers and craft supplies in one.

For this layout I used  the Vintage Summer Basic collection.  Flowers from 49 and market and from my stash and cheesecloth .

Sentimenst are from Tim Holz small talk. the doilys are made with a summer feelings die from Studio Light.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like what I made for you.

Hello Maja Fans

Lenet here and today I have this layout for you .

For this layout I used the wonderful new collection Little street Cafe and the monochromes Shades of cafe.

I love this collection because it brings some color into these gray and rainy days .

I think we all are very busy with all the preparations we have to do with all the festivities this December month brings especially Christmas.

I love Christmas and am one of the people that starts thinking about it in the summer when I enjoy the sun outside in my garden .

But to take a break of  all the Christmas that is going on right now , I thought I make something for you that has nothing to do with Christmas at all.

I felt for flowers and color so I came up with this layout.

The flowers I used are from Prima Marketing and Wild orchid.  The swirl-leaf chipboards  from Creative embellishments and colored with Tim Holtz distress powders Tea dye and Peeled paint.

The bling stones are Amethyst Squares sheen Gemstones from Nuvo and the sentiments from the small talks booklet from Tim Holtz.

The cheesecloth on the back of the picture is colored with SweetClover glimmermist from Tattered Angels.

I hope you like what I made for you , thank you for visiting  and make shure you come back for more wonderful inspiration made by the other Maja Girls.

 

 

Some Kind of Wonderful

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my November inspiration using gorgeous Maja Design papers, Dusty Attic chipboard and 49 and Market flowers.

And again I found on Pinterest a photo that inspired me to create that romantic layout in red and green tones. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

The paper I used is the ”Walk With Me” from the Vintage Romance collection and I started by applying a coat of clear gesso. Then, I created texture with Finnabair icing paste in White Gold and a stencil. When the paste dried, I randomly stamped using 49 and Market stamp sets. I added color with the Lindy’s Gang ”Edelweiss Moss Green” and ”Greased Lightnin’ Green” sprays.

Next, I painted the ”Flower Buds #2” with Finnabair Royal Red and Golden Moss acrylic paints. Continued with the ”Ornate Motifs #2” and the title which were also painted with the Golden Moss paint and then some wax in Green Brocade was randomly rubbed on them. And lastly, I used the Finnabair Sparks paint in Raven Black to color the ”Fancy Label” chipboard.

I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market  flowers from the ”Blossom Blends, Country & Cottage Blooms” sets.

At last, I added art stones, glass beads and glitter and made splatters with white gesso diluted with water.

Paper used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!
