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.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Hello everyone,

Kavitha here today to share my new layout.This time i  made a dark/moody yet girly layout using gorgeous Fika collection,i just love the purple tones of this collection.

I have used three papers from the collection,one dark,one medium and one light to balance the colors,and used some fussy cut flowers from one of the papers.

To create the background i mixed gel medium,purple metallic paint & glitter and applied it through stencils.I have used lots of chipobard pieces and paper layers to construct my design.

All the chipboard pieces are colored with metallic paint and then heat embossed using lindy’s embossing powders.I even colored some flowers to match the color palette as i dint have any in my stash

As finishing touch i added some copper micro beads and sprinkled some glitter.

Maja papers used: Fika : Hemgjord , Blommor pa bordet , Cheesecake BS

Thank you for stopping by.

Happy crafting

Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to show you my mini tutorial for a childish card. I bought one of the most popular metal dies from Sizzix (than’s Marta for you help ! ) and finally after a few weeks I managed to use it !

  1. I was looking for a pastel and sweet paper collection – Summer Crush was just perfect.
  2. I used some of my metal dies and cut the elements to use with my composition.
  3. Added some laces, flowers and created the base.
  4. Painted edges of the elements with Distress Vintage Photo ink.
  5. Put all elements together.
  6. Added flowers, chipboards, splashed my card with the white ink.

Hope you will like my inspiration. Hugs, Paulina

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.

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!
