Hi Maja Design friends, its Tina with you today to share with you my next project. I wanted to create something vibrant and happy to share with you today because I feel we all need a little uplifting at the time in the world.

This is “The best place”……

As you can probably tell I have used the new release “Little Street Cafe” for the inspiration of this project. I love the colours of this collection. They really push me to use brighter colours and I love a good challenge. I decided on using a black and white photo of my youngest daughter to make things a little easier. I have used the patterned papers “The best place” and “Hot drinks”. I took the barcode strip from “The best place” and cut it and used this for my title. Easy. Love that these pieces can be used as I hate to waste paper.

 

            “The best place”

                   “Hot drinks”

    I added texture to my background using a Dusty Attic Stencil and Crackle Paste in white. I added more layers of the gorgeous “Hot drinks” and adhered these to the top section of my page. These pieces were distressed a little and also layered up using some old chipboard pieces. I have used some Dusty Attic chipboards to help embellish my page. These pieces were all dressed similarly using white gesso and crackle paste. I used the Little Street Cafe patterned paper “Tea please” for the backing of my little chipboard window.

                            “Tea please”

And around this I added in some tea stained muslin. Once I added in the muslin I then decided on adding more orange tones to my project to keep it bright and happy. I did this by colouring around my photo area using some pigments in gold.

I also added in a little random stamping using 49andMarket’s Stitching stamps and some numbers.

Above you can see that I also added in some Rafia in the natural colour to hold the frame in place on my project. I added in some gorgeous 49andMarket florals in pinks and soft cashmere. These were dry brushed with a little white gesso to tone the colours. I also added in some splatters of white gesso and pink acrylic paint. I highlighted some of the bluebell chipboard foliage with Star Dust stickles to keep my project sparkling and then I was completed.

Well I hope that this post has bought some happiness to your day. Keep smiling and stay safe.

 

Happy flower girls

Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout as memory on a beautiful vacation last year

to Madeira, it’s a beautiful island situated in the north Atlantic Ocean.

We visited the Flower Festival in spring.
There was an enchanting flower parade, where people danced happily through the streets.

A sea of colours, shapes and scents, simply unforgettably beautiful.

 Always suitable for a spring or flowery theme is the latest paper amazing collection ‘ Little street Cafe’

 I used the paper sheet ‘Something sweets’ as background together with ‘The best place’.  Matching the flowery theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, and some Prima Marketing embellishments and flowers to the mixed media layout.

 Thanks for your visit!
Stay safe everyone and take care of yourselves and your loved ones…

A true gentlemen

Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout in vintage grunge style.

It’s a scrapbook page for a boy with one of my favourite collections ‘Denim & Friends’.

I used the paper sheet ‘Worn Indigo’ as background, a fantastic colour shade it looks like original Blue Jeans

and some leftovers from the paper sheets ‘Jeans and Shirt’ and ‘Sunbleached’.

Denim-P

I love to create in vintage style and a grunge look is perfect for a masculine layout.

I want a weathered look and so I used a white crackle paint applied with a spatula for the edge.

Together with some stamps a great effect.

 the borders from the paper sheets are always a wonderful addition, I use them very often
an awesome MDF shape in steampunk style from Calico Craft Parts
together with a lightbulb from Prima Marketing
Thanks for your visit!

Hello creative friends!

I’m back with a new inspiration for you,

it’s a vintage layout with our latest very romantic paper collection

 ‘ Little street cafe’.

 

 I used the paper sheet ‘Meeting friends’ together with a monochrome paper ‘Vanilla’ as background and some cut outs from ‘Die cut’.

Matching the vintage theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, old book pages and

some Prima Marketing metal embellishments and flowers to the mixed media layout.

some close up’s

stains and splatters with Distress ink for a coffee mood in used look

the time is right

a wonderful aroma emanates from the coffee cup makes with a flourish chipboard

 

Happiness is a cup of coffee or chocolate???

preferably with a delicious homemade cake, or?!

 Thanks for your visit!
I hope I could inspire you to use this beautiful papers
 for some happy hours on your crafting table.
Wish you a happy time!

Welcome!

I hope our winter, which was actually not a winter at all, is over soon.

Grey, wet and some days it just doesn’t seem to get light at all.

But sometimes, even after frosty nights, you could discover a landscape

enchanted by hoarfrost.

This was my inspiration for my mixed media collage today.

 some close up’s

At the last trade fair we made some mushrooms of egg carton with our children.
They made enthusiastically fly mushrooms, that seemed contagious
and so I was inspired to tried another variant myself.

I used our wonderful winter collection ‘Holiday in the Alps’

‘Let it snow’ ; ‘Deers’ and some suitable monochrome papers.

Many thanks for your visit!

Have  a good time!
