Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new family photo. It’s a photo of my paternal grand-mother and her foster father taken at the end of 10’s, beginning of the 20’s.
I started to add a thin layer of white gesso. Then I added a design with Modeling Paste and a stencil.
When the Modeling Paste was dry, I added clear Crackle Paste here and there and let dry again.
In the meantime I die-cut the gears, leaves, branches and colored the flowers.
I painted the gear with black gesso and added Rusting Powder.
After having assembled all the elements of the page, I finished with some random stamping, splatters of black gesso and some black glass glitters.

Hello Maja Friends,
Today I have a card to share with you. It has one of my favorite colors – purple and lilac.
I absolutely love new collection, so rich in colors. I think new many cards and albims are coming. as I have started crafting and can not stop using it.
This time I tried to add as more paper layers as possible, No doubt the papers have been the main focus.
It was quite easy, as the papers were so perfect to match eaach other.
Products used: Enjoying Outdoors -6*6 paper pad, Spellbinders Dies.
Hello Maja fans!
I’m on the blog today to share a mini album I’ve made from the brand new collection Enjoying Outdoors. I love the sweet combination of purples with browns and greens – and reminds me of the lavender fields we saw while on a road trip to the forests in Western Australia.
Here is the cover of my mini. I love the stalks of lavender in the die-cut sheet but lavenders don’t grow well here, so I tied a small bunch of dried forget-me-nots (I keep lots of these whenever I receive a bouquet of flowers, which is not very often by the way!) with some lace. The die cut tags from the 6×6 paper stack are the perfect size for the mini too.
Here’s a look at the inside pages:
This is really a very small album – about 3″ by 5″ so I decided to keep things simple inside without excessive layers. Just lightly distressed edges on the papers and banners made from the info strip to give me plenty of space for photos and journaling.
A little more fun here with chipboard and lace. We always try to spot mushrooms on our walks in the park so I added those as a reminder of the little bits of nature we see when we’re outdoors. Now if only there were truffles here….
In the end, I couldn’t resist adding more layers and flowers.
And the last two pages of the album with simple photo mats and flat flowers so that the album doesn’t end up too chunky.
That’s all for the mini album and I hope to fill it up soon with pictures of our family out in the parks for our walks and the fun things that we see on the way!
