Hello Maja friends!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for March. I made a soft romantic page with lots of flowers, laces and chipboards.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that beautiful photo. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the ”All Dressed Up” paper for my background and I added some layers on it with the ”To the Party”, the ”Jubilee” and the ”Good Times” papers.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Cotton Candy Pink” and the ”Open Arms Amethyst” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the ”Swirly Frame” chipboard and the word title with the Sparks ”Butterfly Spells” acrylic paint.  The ”Foliage #10” chipboards were also painted with the metallique ”White Pearl” acrylic paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello dear Maja fans ,

Today I bring you a dreamy layout  inspired by this months moodboard.

I love moodboards they are alway so inspiring , when I look at one the idea for a layout , card, minialbum or what ever will pop right into my mind.

For this layout i used the papers of two collections : vintage romance – Walk with me, for the base and Vintage Summer Basics -1922on top of it.

Besides that i used a lot of snippets that I placed underneath the picture.

 

The word Dream is a chippie from dusty attic and all the flowers from 49and market.

Thanks for visiting , hope I gave you some extra inspiration for the moodboard challenge.

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for February. I made a soft blue tone layout with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across that beautiful and mysterious photo of a girl with a horse. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose the ”You’re Invited” paper for my background and I added some layers with the ”Party” paper and the ”Anniversary” using both sides of it.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with white crackle paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Blue Hawaiian Blue” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the flourish chipboards and the title with the Sparks ”Magical Pond” acrylic paint. When dried, I gently rubbed on them some ”Vintage Gold” Wax. The ”Flower Stamens” chipboards were also painted with the Sparks ”Raven Black” and they were rubbed first with the ”Blue Velvet” Wax and then with the ”Vintage Gold”. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some crystal and turquoise glass beads and sprinkled some glitter. I final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

Hello  dear Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to inspire you and this time I have a tutorial of how I made this lay out for you.

For this one I used the beautiful papers of the summertime collection.

 

For the background I used the backside of Flowers every where. I high-lighted the area where want my to make my composition with some gesso

While the gesso is drying  I cut out some roses out of the smell the roses sheet, those I will tuck behind the picture and papers later.

 

When the gesso is dry  I made splatters with  Lindy’s flat fabio”s sidewalk chalk and queen of hearts red.

Than I added some random stamping when the splatters were dry.  To see what  the stamp and what color ink I like and want to use,

I did some test stamping at the place that will be covered with the papers. This way I can have a better look at what feels right for me.

I decided to use Pink petunia from versaMagic.

After choosing the papers I want behind my picture, cutting them in the right size I distress the edges with mt paperdistresser from Making Memories

I have this one for I think 10 years used it a lot and really love it. I tried other distressers  when the were introduced  but always went back to using this one.

For sticking the papers on to the papers I use  foamtape because it gives your layout some demension.

I always stick it in the middle so you can tuck flowers or other embellies behind it later on.

Because i own a lot of supplies I never used I gave myself the challenge to try to use some oldies on every project I make from this layout on..

This time I took these Prima flowers. I crunched them to these flowers and  tucked them with the roses .

I love the the way the look now so I’m sure I will use this more often in the future.

   

After sticking the papers and picture on to the background , I embellished  it with roses from Prima, badges from cuts2luv , pearls from the dollarstore.

The leaves are made using  Monochromes shade of Sofiero – Celery/Sage with dies from My favorite things and the swirly ones I think from Marianne Design.. and l tucked the roses I cut out earlier between the layers of the papers.

The edge with the little hearts is made with a punch from Martha Stewart. the word Sweet is a chippy from dusty attic that I colored with black embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you .

Hello Maja fans!

I wish you all a very happy New Year full of health, love and hapiness. Mary with you today to share my inspiration for January.

When I found that beautiful photo on Pinterest, I wanted to scrap it and finally I made a soft wintery layout in grey and teal colors, with lots of flowers, laces and chipboards. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I combined two paper collections, the ”Nyhavn” and the ”Vintage Summer Basics”. I choose the ”Sitting at the Dock” paper from the ”Nyhavn” collection for my background paper. Then, I added some layers with the ”Eating Out” paper from the same collection and the ”1934” from the ”Vintage Summer Basics”.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with snowflake paste and a stencil and then I used graphite paste with a second stencil to give more contrast on my page. I also made some stamping here and there. I continued by coloring my page with the sparks ”Mermaid Sparkle” acrylic paint. 

I painted the flourish chipboards with the metallique ”Silver Spoon” acrylic paint and the chipboard title with the sparks ”Mermaid Sparkle” acrylic paint. Then, I gently rubbed them with the ”Vintage Gold” wax. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and glitter. I also made some splatters with white gesso diluted with some water.
