Hello Maja fans!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”Nyhavn” collection.

A sensational layout that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

detail 1

I used for my background the ”Historical Atmosphere” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Strolling along the Canal” paper using both sides.

detail 2

I primed the background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Hydrangea Blue”, ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Danny Zuko’s Denim” to give some color.

detail 4

I heat embossed the ”Sammi’s Swirls” and the ”Corner Gemma’s” chipboards with ”Oakleaf Olive” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The title was treated in the same way. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with FW white ink.

The card is for a boy. The colours from the newest collections fit perfectly here cause it was needed to use green colour. I added many layers, flowers and chipboard.

Hello my friends!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout using papers from the beautiful ”Vintage Romance” collection.

A mysterious layout this time that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Closer 1

For my background, I used the ”Champagne” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Love Poetry” and the ”Ephemera cards” papers.

Closer 2

I primed the background with clear gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Bayou Boogie Gold”, ”Dark Chocolate Truffle” and ”Cocoa Bean Copper” to give some color.

Closer 3

I heat embossed the ”Madelines flourish frame” chipboard with ”Bratwurst Brown” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The title was also embossed first with the ”Bratwurst Brown” and then with the ”Cafe au Lait” powder. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

Closer 4

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with the sprays I used before.

Hi Everyone, Its Keren Here with a new layout for the Maja Design Blog using one of my all time favourite collections Vintage Summer Basics.

IMG_3313 copy

I love going to the beach and as a family that’s our favourite place to go on vacation. This picture of my kids running on the sand was taken during our last vacation in Mexico. I wanted to create movement on my layout and so I stencilled across the page using white gesso.  Then I sprayed with Prima’s blue Color Bloom sprays summer sky and glistening waves, to mimic the colour of the ocean.

I mounted the photo on small pieces of Maja Design papers and then framed the photo in a Blue Fern Studios chipboard frame which was lightly daubed in white gesso. Then I glued lots of sequence and textured stones around the  frame to add lots of texture to the background and make it look like an ocean. Sequins are from “Dress my Craft” and the art stones are Prima Finnabair.

Here you can se the texture and the Vintage Summer basics papers underneath the photo.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca
