Welcome dear creative friends!

Winter is just around the corner and although I haven’t been able to develop any winter feelings yet,

I was totally enthusiastic about the new ‘Holiday in the Alps’ collection.

I love the colour combination blue – brown – white,

 optimal for every vintage style but you can also create very natural winter landscapes with it.

 I chose a picture of our Sheltie during a beautiful forest walk last year.

Hello Maja fans!

Today, I would like to share a new layout made for my September inspiration using papers from the gorgeous ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection. As usual, I’ve also used 49 and Market flowers, Dusty Attic chipboard and Finnabair moulds to embellish my page and achieve a romantic and elegant feeling.

As always, I found my photo on Pinterest and before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the back side of the ”Beautiful Trees” paper and made several layers with torn pieces of the ”Having Tea in the Sun” paper on the background. I also used the back side of the same paper to mat my photo. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with the Finnabair White Gold icing paste and a stencil. When the paste dried, I used the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Edelweiss Moss Green and Greased Lightnin’ Green sprays to add color.

Next, I applied paper paste on the chipboards to make them textured and painted them with the Finnabair Golden Moss acrylic paint.

Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers.

Papers used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Until next time happy crafting!

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout with a video tutorial to share with you. As always I found my photo on Pinterest and this one inspired me to create a soft romantic page in green, white and brown tones.

But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer. To create my page I used Maja Design papers from the gorgeous ”Vintage Summer Basics” collection along with some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards and beautiful 49 and Market flowers.

 

You can watch all the procedure here…

 

The paper I used is the ”1921” and I started by applying a coat of clear gesso. Then, I created texture with Finnabair paper texture paste and the Dusty Attic Damask #2 Stencil. When the paste dried, I randomly stamped using 49 and Market stamp sets. I added color with the Lindy’s Gang ”Greased Lightnin’ Green” spray.

Next, I used different mixed media techniques to treat the Dusty Attic chipboards which you can watch on the video tutorial.

Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers. At last, I added the Dusty Attic title word and finished it up with art stones, glass beads and glitter.

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Until next time happy crafting!

I used the ”Minnen” paper and made several layers behide my photo with the cards from the back side of the same paper. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with the Finnabair Frosty Pearl icing paste and a stencil. When the paste dried, I used the Lindy’s Gang Sea Grass Green spray to add color.

Next, I heat embossed the chipboards with the Stampendous Aged Ivory embossing enamel.

Hello Maja fans!

Today, I would like to share a new layout made for my June inspiration using papers from the gorgeous ”Denim & Girls” & ”Denim & Friends” collections. I’ve also used 49 and Market flowers, Dusty Attic chipboard, lace and Finnabair moulds to embellish my page and achive a romantic and elegant feeling.

As always I found my photo on Pinterest and before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the ”Worn Indigo” paper and made a layer on the half bottom side of it with the ”Loose Fit” paper.  To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with an icing paste and a stencil. When the paste dried, I randomly stamped and used a Lindy’s Gang spray to add color.

Next, I painted the chipboard with a Finnabair acrylic paint.
