Hello  Sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this this layout .

I made this layout using the  wonderful papers of  the Summer Crush collection.

I layered some sheets and distressed the edges.  For the top sheet I used my sewing machine and zigzagged it on to the other sheets.

The chippies I used are from Scrapaholics chipboards .I painted those in the color I wanted and gave them a top layer of clear embossingpowder.

The flowers I used are from Prima and 47andMarket.

 

I hope you like my layout, see you next time .

Hello Sweet Maja  fans.

Lenet hereand today I bring you this  layout made with the wonderful papers of the Vintage Summer Collection.

The frame and sentiment are chipboards from Dusty Attic and I colored them with distress embossingpowder from Tim Holtz.

Lately I’m into making  My own flowers , not that I don’t have any but it’s fun to do and this way you always have a matching color to go with you papers and picture .

That is if you use a picture on the project you are making. Another good thing is , I’m using my old flower dies again.

Here are two close ups of the flowers I made for this layout, I added a littleplaterpaste on the edges to give it a little extra. in the center I used stems and 3D balls medium from powertex.

and again I did some fuzzy cutting and stuck them behind the flowers . I love to do the fuzzy cuttig and the effect it gives when you use them like this. It’s just that little bit extra.

I hope you like my lay out , thank you for visiting , stay safe and hope to see you again next time.

A very warm welcome back Maja Design friends. I am back with you today to share my next project which I have created by combining a mix of Maja Designs beautiful papers. I had a very special photo to start off with of my son down at the creek in the school holidays netting for yabbies. Something that we loved to do when we had spare time.

So because it showcases my son, I decided to create with the blue and brown tones with additional highlights of grey and black. I started out by tearing Miles Apart’s “Stay Home”. It was the base of this that was torn. I wanted to keep those cute balloons to complete the scene. To the base of this I added in an older piece but a huge favourite for me from the Autumn Basics collection, No.XXI. I adhered these two together and then added over some textures using the Brick stencil from Dusty Attic. Over the stenciled texture I coloured in the edges of the bricks using Distress Inks in the colours of Walnut Stain and Black Soot. I also did a little random stamping using a numbers stamp and Archival Ink in the colour of Watering Can. Once this was dried I then added in some rub-ons in a navy colour to match my papers and photo.

I then moved on to adding in my photo. For this project I used a 4 x 6 inch colour portrait photo. The edges of the photo were sanded and behind the photo I added in lots of layers of my leftover papers and I also added in an additional piece of Denim and Friends “Stonewashed” paper. All of these layers were distressed heavily and layered behind my photo.

Once all the base pieces were adhered down I moved on to embellishing my layout. To it I added in some , well lots of Dusty Attic chipboards and 49andMarket flowers. I also made some extra acetate embellishments using a stamp and embossing powders. These were fussy cut and layered amongst the chipboards.

I also added in a little birds nest in the left corner of the layout. I made this using wood wool, a fabulous fibre that comes in handy quite often. I moulded the birds nest and glued it using gel medium. I added in a couple of cute eggs and a little ephemera bird from my stash. I also added in some art stones in differing sizes.

Finishing off my project I cut some more of those cute hot air balloons from the Miles Away paper of “Dream Away”. Some of these were adhered flat and some were popped up on tapes.

Well that is all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed my project. Until next time take care and happy crafting.

Hello Maja Design friends. Thankyou for returning here today. My project I am sharing with you uses the gorgeous gorgeous collection of Miles Apart.
This is  “My love for you”….
It was when I was going through the absolutely stunning paper collection of Maja Design’s new release “Miles Apart” that I came across a quote from the barcode strip of “Keep in touch”, that I knew this was my starting point.
The quote reads:
“If you listen to the wind very carefully, you’ll be able to hear me whisper my love for you”.
Just beautiful don’t you think? So I found my photo to work with this and went to work. I made lots of layers using torn papers from the Maja collection in the tones of the blues and apricot as in the moodboard below. I couldn’t believe really how close these colours were.

 

They are as listed below.

 

Keep in touch “A”
“Keep in touch “B”

 

“Keeping Busy” “A”

 

 “Keeping Busy” “B”

  
I did a little embossing in white around the outside of the background using a stitching stamp from 49andMarket. I also added in some texture using Rangers White Crackle paste and some random stamping in Archival Ink in Watering Can. The barstrip with the quote was cut up and distressed.
 
I used a number of gorgeous pieces of Dusty Chipboards some you will probably have to look very hard to see but they are there. For me it is all about the layers. So starting off once all my paper layers were down I added in the new release chipboard the “Flowering Vine”. I have used the smaller vine from this pack. It was dressed in white crackle paste along with Inka Golds in the colours of mint and apricot.

I have used a number of flower packs. Some from 49andMarket and some from Prima Marketing to create my flower clusters.

 

Lots of lace and leaves with pretty flower pearls and muslin were also added in amongst these layers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed this blogpost. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very blessed and safe Christmas and New Year.
Can’t wait to see you all back here again next year.
Thanks for calling by.
