Hello Maja friends!

The sunflowers are blooming in my garden, a wonderful flower – beautiful and useful at the same time. They radiated stronger than the sun and provide the birds with plenty of food in winter. Mostly they grow by themselves and only need a support or neighbor’s garden fence.

 

I was inspired to create mixed media layout with autumn feelings and so I used  a lot of leaves dies, stamps and fabric textures.

The autumn colours based on spray inks in yellow, white and brown shades.

 The Monochrome paper sheet ‘Old Brass’ from the Shades of Celebration collection was very suitable for it. 

I’m always in love with the amazing motif papers from Maja Design,

 but if you want to develop artistically completely free, the monochrome papers are perfect, 

because you can hide nothing with your own personal design. 

You know what I mean?!

I love the natural look, not perfect but unique,

 just like outside in the garden and in the great outdoors.

I hope my layout was able to get you into the fall 

and inspire you to play with the wonderful papers again.

 

Have a beautiful time!

Kerstin

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!

Thank you for stopping by!

Welcome friends!

Kerstin is back and I want to share with you my latest mixed media layout.

Fall is knocking on your door, finally, you feel like saying, after months of heat and drought.

At the begin of September, the summer heat gradually gives way to cooler autumn time,

which cobers the landscape in spectacular wonderful colours.

Time to walk in the woods and rustle through the foliage.

 

 I used a background paper ‘Autumn in the air’ from the collection  ‘Walking in the forest’. I love this wonderful golden autumn colours with delicate leaves motifs, Simply adorable!!

 In addition I used some Sizzix dies, flowers and embellishments from 49 and Market, wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts and a lace and frame which was made with silicone moulds.

 Have a wonderful time!
