Hello and welcome Maja friends.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my inspired Maja Designs Moodboard project for March.

This is “Remember”…..

I have used this photo on many occassions but never in the coloured form. For some unkown reason to myself I never ever knew my daughter was actually wearing a pink dress in this pic until I come across the original cleaning out my photo stash last week. Well I think I can be forgiven because this little girl in the photo is about to turn 14. So it was a while ago that the photo was taken. On this day she had been riding up and down on her scooter when she had a fall from the scooter. She was not impressed that it has happened at all and sat and sulked for some time. I don’t know what made me take the photo but it is a huge favourite of mine.

For my project I have used the papers from the Nyhaven collection. I would have to say that this is my number one on my Maja Design list of collections. I also believe I have made more layouts from this collection than any other in my time on the team.

Eating Out

I have to say that I love to distress my Maja papers. They come up a treat when distressed heavily. And they give a great effect to shabby chic projects. So I did a little tearing and distressing of my photos.

I have added in lots of Dusty Attic chipboards, 49andMarket flowers, muslin, prills and I also added texture to my background page using the mini hearts stencil from Dusty Attic.

You can see the heart stencil above here. They are just so cute.

 

The crackle effect can be seen above. Leaving your chipboards to dry on their own has a better outcome than heatsetting. It is often hard to wait but I think the wait is well worth it.


And for you, a little video of my creating time during my project “LOVE”. I hope you enjoy it.

That is all from me tonight. I hope you have enjoyed popping by. Thankyou for doing so. And until next time take care and happy scrapping.

Hello  Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and this time I bring you this Layout.

I didn’t use one specific collection this time , almoste every piece of of paper I used for this layout are leftovers I saved from other projects I made.

Except for the base /background , for this I used Monochromes shades of Celebration -Vintage Teal and  Shades of Sofiero White/Sand.

I always keep every snippet , it’s such a waste to throw away these lovely papers.

I always will find a use for it , I deal for making cards or like this a layered layout.

You can tuck them behind another piece and create the illusion of a larger piece that is peeking out a little from underneath it.

Here I have some close up for you.  The little frames come from the local dollarstore.

 

Flowers and leaves are from Prima and 47 and Market

The white sticks come from my own stash , I found them between my Christmas decorations .

 

Thank you very much for visiting , I hope I gave you some inspiration with my layout.

Hello sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this autumn layout.

I”m very lucky to live close to the forest and the shore of the  North Sea

I love being outdoors and taking long walks especially in the forest  .

The colors are so beautiful this time of the year and I love the earthy smell, and a hot mug of coco with whipped cream when I get home to warm up.

There is so much to see while nature is preparing it self for winter.

I tried to bring you that feeling in todays layout.

I used the walk in the forest Collection for this one, love the warm colors and cosy patterns of this collection.

The little girl is holding a bouquet of flowers and I made it come back in this corner, the branches are cut out of a sheet of cork with a branch die from sizzix .

The fawns are made using the playful fawns die from memory box.

This branch comes from my stash and I have no idea what brand it is, but I used distress embossing powders to color it and gave it more dept with a layer of clear embossing powder on top of it.

Added some dewdrops for a finishing touch.

Hope I gave you some autumn inspiration to make your own layout, tag, card or anything.

Happy Fall to you all, enjoy it.

Hello and welcome Maja Design friends.

Tina Ollett with you today to share my next project with you.

This has been titled “Happiness blooms from within……”

I have kept my project for today very simple and very shabby. I did lots of layering of the beautiful papers from may all time favourite collection Vintage Romance. The papers from this collection are listed below for you.

Walk with me – Vintage Romance

Walk with me bs – Vintage Romance

When I saw you bs – Vintage Romance

I have also added in a sheet of the gorgeous Lavendar Rose to compliment my layout from the Monochromes shades of Celebration. This was used to mat my photo and some of the other layers to help them pop a little. It is a very stunning colour.

Mono Celebration-Lavender Rose

I decided to go with a black and white photo to help keep the layout light. I also decided to use some cute paper clay moulds.

And as always with my layouts I have added layers of Dusty Attic chipboards to my layers of Maja Design papers. I have used Distress Inks to colour my chipboards along with splashes of gesso to lighten sections of the boards.

I have added in lots of beautiful 49andMarket flowers. These too have been added in layers amongst the papers and chipboards.

Here you can see all the layers of the torn Maja Design papers.

Here you can see I have added in lines of gorgeous lace. This has been cut to sit back to back and over the top of each other and also over the layers of my torn papers. I added in sections of white muslin that has been distressed.

Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed my post today. Until next time take care and happy crafting.

 

The good life
