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

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Until next time happy crafting!

Welcome everyone!

The strawberries are ripe, a wonderful time in the garden,

which always reminds me of my childhood.

There was nothing better than picking them myself and putting them right in mouth.

I was inspired to create a mixed media project on a canvas. For that I used some papers from the ‘Summertime’ collection. There you can find a lot of  red suitable papers. The Maja Design papers are always of a very good quality, they are firm and stable and therefore also ideally suited for colour games. It is advisable to always start with a layer of clear gesso, so that the paper is sealed and does not curl.

 Flowers everywhere

 Taste the strawberrys

Hello Maja fans!

Today, I would like to share a new layout with a video tutorial made for my May inspiration. As always I found my photo on Pinterest and this one inspired me to create a soft romantic page in white and blue tones. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

 To create my page I used papers from the new gorgeous ”Denim & Girls” collection along with some Dusty Attic chipboards and 49 and Market flowers.
You can watch all the procedure here…

 

The paper I used is the ”Tough but sweet” and made some layers behide my photo with the ”You’re beautiful” and ”Loose fit” papers. 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 all the Dusty Attic chipboards with Finnabair acrylic paints.

Then, I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market flowers from the ”Blossom Blends, Garden Seeds & Cottage Blooms” sets.

Hello Maja fans!

Today, I would like to share a new layout with a video tutorial made for my April inspiration. To create my page I used Maja Design papers from the gorgeous I Wish” collection along with several gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards and beautiful 49 and Market flowers.

As always I found my photo on Pinterest and this one inspired me to create a steampunk page with a romantic and mysterious feeling. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

 

You can watch all the procedure here…

 

For my project, I chose the ”I Wish – those memories will last” paper from the ”I Wish” collection. To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso and then, I created texture with a Finnabair icing paste and a stencil. Then, I randomly stamped and used Lindy’s Gang sprays to add color.

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 from the ”Botanical Blends & Potpourri – Marina” sets.

Hello dear friends!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout with a video tutorial to share with you. To create my page I used papers from the gorgeous ”I Wish” collection along with some beautiful Dusty Attic chipboards which was placed around a photo I found on Pinterest. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

 

You can watch all the procedure here…

And here are some close ups…

I used the ”I wish those memories will last” paper from the ”I Wish” collection and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Evergreen” and the ”Outdoors” papers from the ”Joyous Winterdays” collection.

To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso on the background. Then, I created texture with graphite paste and a stencil and heat emboss the pattern with the Wow metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing powder. Made some stamping here and there and used Lindy’s Gang sprays to add color.

Next, I embossed the ”Chain Circles” & the ”Ornate Corner #13” chipboard pieces with the Aged Ivory Stampendous embossing powder.
Continued with the ”Foliage #8” & ”Foliage #9” chippies which were painted with the Finnabair Golden Moss acrylic paint. The ”Window & Shutters #2” and the ”Wordpl@y3” pieces were also painted with the Finnabair Rustic Brown paint.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white acrylic ink.
