Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I wanted to show you the masculine gift envelope that I made using the Nyhavn collection. The gift envelopes become more and more popular today as sometimes it is much more appropriate to give the gift card, especially if its a person you don’t know well enough. So here is my version of one for a Man…

Hi dear Maja fans! Hope you are fine! Here comes my latest card which I finished yesterday. I wanted to make a pink and yellow card, so I found the perfect pattern papers in the Nyhavn Collection:

Nyhavn-P

I have used a new image from Magnolia, and coloured her in matching colour as the papers. I use Distress Ink for my colouring.

The flowers are from Kort& Godt and WOC. To tone them down and to give them that shabby look, I painted over them with White Gesso. Under the flowers I have put some Sissal grass.

I have used drops of Liquid pearls in her hair. Behind the image I have put some cheese cloth and a doily.

You might have a better view of how the paper is built up under.

Here are the three pattern papers I have used:

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Nyhavn collection. I chose a photo of “K on Sun” Franz Kafka’s head statue made by David Černý. The elements which composed the statue revolved all the time as you can see it here.

Did you know that the front page of the Nyhavn collection has a beautiful design on his backside? It is the one I use for this layout.
As usual, I primed the paper with clear gesso. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and the Platinum crackle paste.

When dry, I added some colors with different acrylic paints, I watered them down to obtain a watercolor effect.

I die cut a few embellishments: gears and leaves in a watercolor paper, and some letters in a black paper. I covered the leaves with the platinum crackle paint and add some Brushed Iron wax. I colored some of the letters with the same wax.

I painted the gears with the Raven Black Sparks and added some waxes too. I also painted the flowers and the leaves with some Sparks paints.

I glued all the embellishments as well as some papers that I added under the photo.

To finish the layout I added some micro beads.

Hello, I'm Pascale B. from France. Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition. Visit me at www.pbhobby.blogspot.com

Enjoy…

Hello my friends! Happy Easter to all of you!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the ”Nyhavn” and the new ”Monochromes-Shades of Sofiero” collections.

A layout filled with colorful flowers that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unkown” photographer.

I used for my background the ”King’s Square” paper from the ”Nyhavn” collection and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Blush/Rouge” paper from the ”Monochromes” collection using it’s both sides.

I primed my background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Cotton Candy Pink”, ”Alpine Ice Rose” and ”Peony Scarlet Red”.

I heat embossed the ”Foliage Set 1” chipboards with ”Spanish Moss Green” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The ”Circle Dot Frame” was also embossed with the ”Twilight Rade Slate” powder.

The chipboards I used are 2crafty, the flair is Cuts2luv and all the flowers are Prima Marketing.
