Hello dear friends!

Mary here with you sharing my latest layout for my May inspiration. 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. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Hello! My name is Mary and I live in Greece. I met scrapbooking two years ago. I love creating layouts but I also design tags, cards, mini albums, canvases and altered items as well. My style is mixed media, with a little vintage and some shabby chic touches.

Hello friends!

Soon is Mother’s Day and I want to give a little attention to my mother. I created a mixed media frame in a delicate shabby chic look.

 

I used a simply frame as basic. Firstly I made some ornaments with the help of moulds and air drying modeling clay.

These were glued to the frame with heavy gel medium, I added some metallic sticker too.

Then I painted everything over with Chalky Finish ‘Vintage’ paint from DecoArt.

Now put some heavy white gesso over the embellishments to bring out the texture and details on the frame.

some details

I used paper sheet ‘Birthday’ as background and the beautiful lady from ‘Emphemera’ 12 x 12

little lady was a cut out from the 6 x 6 paper back

I’ve always loved the combination of these colours and the beautiful ‘Celebration’ paper is probably my favourite in the stash.

Cut to fit and complemented with a metal frame from Prima and some blooms, the new frame in altered art was finished.

Suitable to this frame I made two wooden handpainted candle holds with her favourite flowers

and a irish crochet doily.

Thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful time!

Goodmorning lovely Maja Fans,

Are you enjoying the spring weather…here in The Netherlands we had some pretty sunny days but that is over now, sadly but hopefully soon we can enjoy the sun again. For today I have a layout to share. Two weeks ago my computer died on me and I could not post my project {sorry for that} but now my husband fixed that and I can edit my work again yeah. This layout is made with two collections “Celebration” & “Denim and Friends” and Camilla her lovely daughter Freja <3 is on the picture.

On the beackground of my layout I added the pretty waterdrops stamp by Gabrielle Pollacco {still one of my favorite stamps sets ever} but before I added that stamp I used two other stamps to one crackle and one script stamp. After prepairing my background I treated my chipboard pieces with several acrylic paints layered on top of each other to get a worndown look.

After I treated the chipboards I added my flower clusters. Then I took my photograph and layered it on two sheets of the 6×6 paper pads then I placed it on top of the chipboard frame to get more dimension.  At the end I took out a letter sticker sheet from webster pages and made the word bliss and in that corner I placed a metal piece.

At the end I used some of my white spray and gesso to lighten up my flowers and papers…but I also added some art stones and some sea shells. I think that is it on how I created this layout. I had a lot of fun also because we have a son and I really enjoy making layouts with girls being the focal point.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Glamour bs & Champagne bs, Denim & Friends: Streetwear bs.

    

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

Hello dears and welcome to the blog!

Today, I would like to share with you my inspiration for April. This time I have something a little bit different from my comfort zone. I made two cards with papers from the ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection along with lots of flowers and laces.

For the background I choose the ”Singing in the rain” paper and I used it on both cards. I made two layers on the first one with the ”The Great Nature” and the ”Woodlands” papers. I added color with the Edelweiss Moss Green Lindy’s Gang spray. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Fairy Wings”.

I have also made two layers on the second one with the ”Gardening” and the ”Time for reflection” papers. I used the Open Arms Amethyst Lindy’s Gang spray to add some color. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Iris Potion”. The chipboards are Dusty Attic and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

When everything was glued down, I added some glass beads and sprinkled a little glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.
