Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Yesterday some of us at the Maja Design creative team are guests designers at the More Than Words challenge blog! I totally love this months challenge because I love using frames and the word memories on my layouts as much as I can. For this layout I used the always amazing “Denim & Friends” collection. If you click on the pink words above it will take you to the link at their blog.

For the frames and the text I used some beautiful The Dusty Attic chippies which I colored with gesso, acrylic paints and rust paste. First I added a layer of clear gesso on my background sheet later on I added some lindy’s spray after that I added a script stemp and a stencil with some crackle paste. The flowers are by 49 and Market & Little Birdie.

I used some clear gesso on my background sheets after that I added some white spray that I moved from the left to the right with a brush. When that dried I took a script stamp with some grey ink and stamped it randomly on my background after that I added a stencil with paste.

 At the end I added some art stones and some of the clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.
Maja Design papers used: Sunbleached, Fashion bs & Stonewashed

Thank you very much for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to go and create something beautiful with your Maja papers. Have a wonderful & sunny day!

Love xoxo

Hi there paper friends. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I have a layout to share with you where I have used both the “Vintage Spring & Summer Basics” paper collections. I have to say I am really enjoying working with the Maja Design paper collections because they all mix & match so brilliantly together. Makes our job as scrapbookers so easy !!!


I have cut this word “Memories” from the Vintage Summer Basics “Memories” paper to use as my title. This particular paper has all sorts of great tags, words, postcards & all manner of ephemera that are perfect for cutting out to use as embellishments etc.


I have also cut some tags & labels out of that same paper & I have used them to create some great layers both at the top & sides of my photo. In the above photo you can also see the gorgeous “1926” paper as well as the reverse side of “Memories” papers, both from the Vintage Summer Basics collections. These two papers compliment each other beautifully.


For my background I have used the “1st of April” paper which is from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. I just love that little bird in the top right corner too. I adore the subtle details of this paper. Perfect background choice. All of the chipboard I have used, including this gorgeous screen are from 2Crafty Chipboard.


Here you can see a close up of the detail I have added in the corner of my layout. On the background, if you look closely, you will see I have added some gauze which I adhered with a gel medium before stencilling over the top of it to create some wonderful texture. I have also added some Olive Vine Glimmermist for added colour as well as a little background stamping.



Well thats all from me today, I will see you back here again in a few weeks with another project. Until then.
