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 .
