Hello dear friends!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you. A Christmas page made with the new collection ”Joyous Winterdays”.

Photo 1

As usual, I found that photo on Pinterest and combined it with two papers of that gorgeous collection, lots of beautiful flowers, some chipboards and several Christmas embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

Photo 2

For my background, I used the ”Pick a Tree” paper on the back side and made two layers on it with torn pieces from the ”Outdoors” paper  using both sides of it. First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with snowflake paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Sea Grass Green” and ”Rusty Lantern Lime”.

Photo 3

I painted the snowflake chipboards with the opal magic ”Aqua-Rose” acrylic paint. The flourish chipboards and the title was also painted with the ”Fairy Wings” acrylic paint sparks. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.

Photo 4

When everything was glued down, I made some splatters with white gesso diluted with some water.

For my background, I used the ”Blizzard” paper and made two layers on it with torn pieces from the ”Snowball Fight” paper  using both sides of it. First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil and then I heat embossed the pattern with the ”Angel Wings Gold” Lindy’s Gang embossing powder. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Golden Doubloons” and ”Whale Watch Blue”.

Welcome!

Today an ‘Out off the page’ project in vintage style, it’s a triptych with wintry feeling.

IMG_4118

As I saw the wonderful new collection papers ‘Joyous winterdays’ I was inspired to create a new home decor project for christmas as little gift for a good friend.

used Maja Design papers

Joyous-Winterdays-P

948-Ephemera

946-Blizzard 942-Frost

other used materials

modelling clay white, Snow tex (DecoArt), Silikon mould ‘Icecycle’, Distress ink ‘Walnut stain’, clear stamp ‘Crackle’, chipboards (Scrap FX), cutting dies, Resin treasure window

How I made this

2017-11-01

  • I choose background paper ‘Frost’ and cut out all three MDF pieces
  • then I glued the paper with Decoupage Glue (DecoArt) on it
  • I connected the three pieces and used the paper distresser tool for the edges, it gives an beautiful altered effect
  • then i chose two motives from this new amazing Christmas/ Wintercollection and cut out – the sweet snowmen and little boy

2017-11-011

  • icecycles were made with white modeling clay and a mould
  • to complete the background, I added Distress Ink ‘Walnut stain’ with a little bit water for some running effects, it will give you a worned altered look
  • I used the ‘Blizzard’ paper, textured paper (leftovers from a wallpaper) and a craft paper for cutting dies – trees, lantern, winter leaves and snowflakes
  • glued all also embellishments with a transparent adhesive medium
  • create the snow effect with Snow tex (DecoArt)

This project was so much fun to create and I love the scene that you can build up, using all the beautiful background papers from Maja Design.

And if you wonder why the little boy is suddenly blue now, even though he is on the original green, it was very cold in the snow 😉 … ?

yes, you can change the color of these papers later, for example with alcohol markers 🙂

Many thanks for your visit!

Enjoy your weekend!

Hello my dear friends!!!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you.

A Christmassy page this time, as the Christmas season is finally near us, my friends. Oh, I love so much this season and I’m already feeling festive. And the new gorgeous Christmas collection ”Joyous Winterdays”, that I received a few days ago, have strengthened my festive feeling alot!

1

As you may already know, I love finding my photos on Pinterest and this time, while I was searching I found that beautiful wintery photo. So, I choose two papers that was matching perfectly and combined them with some beautiful flowers, a few Christmas chipboards and Christmas embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

2

For my background, I used the ”Pick a Tree” paper and made a layer on it with the ”Glisten” paper. 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 continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Green with Envy Green”, and ”Grab a Guy Gold”.

4

I heat embossed all the chipboards with the ”Tannenbaum Green Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.

5

When everything was glued down, I used snowflake paste here and there with a paintbrush to add a real snow effect to my pagect and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

As you may already know, I love finding my photos on Pinterest and this time, while I was searching I found that beautiful photo. So, I choose paper from the ”I Wish” collection and combined it with some beautiful flowers and a few metal embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
