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

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.

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.

Happy Sunday Maja Fans.
Tina with you today to share my latest project using the gorgeous new release collection of “Celebration”. I again used more photos from my wedding day. The photos of my two eldest children and my hubby is a truly special moment. and I love the naturalness of it all. As always when photographing children they don’t always do what you want and in these photos you can see that that is exactly what happened, but I think that is what makes them extra special photos.
The first gorgeous piece from Celebration that I used is called “Anniversary”, a totally stunning piece I really couldn’t got past using this, but I decided to also use the the bs of this piece as it is equally gorgeous. I tore my piece turned the bottom over and then went to work embellishing my page.
I wanted to keep my layout stylish and a little elegant. And since our photos were taken out in the garden I decided to add some garden elements to my layout. For example the chipboard birdbath and old shabby window shutters and of course lots and lots of beautiful florals.
Above you can see the Dusty Attic chipboards that I used and the textures and colours which I have dressed my embellishments in. I wanted to keep the colours quite neutral and soft.
I decided to use two photos from the shoot both where my son was obviously not concentrating on the camera. Just too cute I reckon !! I also cut a clock from the Maja Designs Vintage Summer collection and added it to my layout atop of the smaller lacey heart photo frame and I added the Roman Numerals “IV” for the 4 of us. Thought it was quite fitting for my layout.
And to keep with the elegance of the page I have coloured some of my chipboards and flowers and leaves with a gold in the colour of Miner Miner from Shimmerz Paints. It is a stunning way to highlight pieces on a layout. I have also added in some cutouts of the flowers from a second piece of Anniversary and tucked them in and around the flowers clusters. You can never have too many flowers I think.
That is all from me today. I hope your weekend has been kind to you and you have had some time for crafting.
Until next time take care, hugs………..
