Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my September inspiration.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I choose some papers from the gorgeous ”Denim & Friends” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

As my main paper I used the ”Stonewashed” and I made some layers behide my photo with the ”Paisley”, the ”Leather” and both sides of the ”Summer Shirt” papers. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

Then  I used Lindy’s Gang spray to color my page and made some stamping here and there.

I heat embossed the Dusty Attic chipboards with Stampendous embossing enamels and then I randomly rubbed some wax to highlight them a little bit more.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here today and I would like to share with you a layout for my August inspiration.

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

For my background I used the back side of the ”Ephemera Cards” paper and I made one layer on it with the ”Marriage Proposal” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

I used some Lindy’s Gang sprays to color my page and made some stamping here and there.

I choose some Dusty Attic chipboards and I used some Lindy’s embossing powders to heat emboss them.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and glitter and I made the final touch with some splatters with white gesso.

Hello Maja fans!

Mary here with you today and I have a new canvas to share for my July inspiration. A soft romantic canvas on the shades of blue and beige with lots of flowers, chipboards and IOD moulds.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that photo. And, the beautiful papers from the ”Crea Diem” 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 ”Må du leva och växa” paper for the ”Crea Diem” collection. To start, I glued down the papers and I applied a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil.

I made some random stamping and then I used a Lindy’s Gang spray to color my page.

I colored the ”Doodads #6” and the ”Iron Garnish #6” chipboard with the Raven Black sparks acrylic paint.  The ”Delicate Frame #3” chipboard was also colored with the Magical Pond paint and the chipboard title with the White Pearl. The chipboards I used are from Dusty Attic. 

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

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here and I would like to share with you a layout for my June inspiration. And for one more time, I made a colorful page with lots of flowers, chipboards and IOD moulds. The color combination I used is one of my favorite and I think it suits perfectly on the soft Maja Design papers. Don’t you think?

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

For my background I used the back side of the ”Fashion” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with paper texture paste and a stencil.

I used some Lindy’s Gang sprays to color my pages and made some stamping here and there.

I heat embossed the ”Mystic Frame #2” flourish chipboard with the ”Gutten Tag Teal” Lindy’s powder.  The title chipboard was also embossed with the ”Yodeling Yellow” powder and then, I covered it with the ”White Gold” wax. I randomly rubbed the same wax on the flourish chipboard and on the moulds too. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white ink.

Hello dear friends!

This time I made a colorful page with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments and I choose a dark paper to combine them. I don’t really remenber if I have already told how much I love that combination. The contrast is just amazing!

 

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.

For my background I used the ”Ephemera” paper on the back side. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and I applied a small amount of white gesso behinde my combosition. When it was dried, I added some texture with paper texture paste and a stencil.

I made some stamping here and there and then I heat embossed the patterns with the ”Venus Violet Blue” and the ”Sunset Yellow Orange” Lindy’s Gang embossing powders. Continued by coloring my page with the ”Tea Pot Purple” and the ”Magnolia Magenta Gold” Lindy’s sprays.

I painted the ”Small Scroll #2” flourish chipboard with the Sparks ”Iris Potion” acrylic paint.  The ”Clockworks Small” chipboard was also painted with the metallique ”Steampunk Copper” paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic.
