Hello sweet Maja Fans,

Lenet here , it’s my turn to bring you some inspiration .

I bring you this layout with a picture of my son when he was 4 years old inspired by the moodboard of this month.

As you might know or maybe not the challenge is for 2 months this time so still loads of time to enter.

He made his first drawing  that of a car on our garden table with chalks that are meant to use on the sidewalk or floor outside .

Of course I was not really happy with him drawing on my table but he was so proud of it ,an me my self as well .

for this layout I used some left overs from the vintage baby collection.

The one with the blue stars that I used as a background was just a little to small to cover the cardstock I used as base  , so I torn it in two and connected it again with some sewing.

I added some buttons to the twine for a playful effect.

I hope you like my layout.

Have a lovely day

Hello and a big welcome today Maja fans. Tina O with you to share a little project that I have created today for my post here. Sometimes I run late with projects and they are the days I find I am the most productive. In saying this they are also usually my most favourite projects. And this one is no exception.

 

This is “Once upon a time………

I have used the Celebration collection. I am so drawn to pokadots and also black. Although this isn’t a true black I still am very drawn to it. And because it is not a true black I always think it is much easier to co-ordinate a multitude of colours with it.

I have used a photo of my gorgeous daughter at her formal this year. She looked absolutely gorgeous I think but I am bias of course. A real princess. All she needed was a crown. For my project I decided to draw the colour from her dress into the layout by using browns and greens along with the black and cream from the Celebration papers. The papers I used are listed for you below.

I tore Let’s Celebrate to sit over the top of the polkadots of Let’s Party. It didn’t add any mixed media just lots of soft laces and some gorgeous flowers to do all the embellishing of this page for me. I love every now and then to keep it very simple and clean.

 

The chipboards have all been dressed in Black Distress Ink and then wiped over with White Gesso and a little White Liquid Pearls to give a shimmer.

I love lace and recently I attented the Brisbane Expo where I found some of the most gorgeous pieces ever. Some of them I have used here. They have been cut into sections to sit around the flower clusters and to help take away from the black of the page.

I have added many layers of lace and chipboards to keep the focus on the prettiness of my background paper.

The gorgeous flowers used here are from 49andMarket. I have used the Aloe and Sandcastle colours to help coordinate with the page.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed my project and your visit to our blog.

Until next time happy crafting and take care.

Hello everyone,

Kavitha here today to share my new layout.This time i  made a dark/moody yet girly layout using gorgeous Fika collection,i just love the purple tones of this collection.

I have used three papers from the collection,one dark,one medium and one light to balance the colors,and used some fussy cut flowers from one of the papers.

To create the background i mixed gel medium,purple metallic paint & glitter and applied it through stencils.I have used lots of chipobard pieces and paper layers to construct my design.

All the chipboard pieces are colored with metallic paint and then heat embossed using lindy’s embossing powders.I even colored some flowers to match the color palette as i dint have any in my stash

As finishing touch i added some copper micro beads and sprinkled some glitter.

Maja papers used: Fika : Hemgjord , Blommor pa bordet , Cheesecake BS

Fika-P

Thank you for stopping by.

Happy crafting

Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to show you my mini tutorial for a childish card. I bought one of the most popular metal dies from Sizzix (than’s Marta for you help ! ) and finally after a few weeks I managed to use it !

  1. I was looking for a pastel and sweet paper collection – Summer Crush was just perfect.
  2. I used some of my metal dies and cut the elements to use with my composition.
  3. Added some laces, flowers and created the base.
  4. Painted edges of the elements with Distress Vintage Photo ink.
  5. Put all elements together.
  6. Added flowers, chipboards, splashed my card with the white ink.

Hope you will like my inspiration. Hugs, Paulina

Precious Memories.

Hello again Sweet Maja fans.

As you could read in yesterdays post of Maja ,  Maja Design is one of the sponsors of the More Than Words challenge and some of us Maja girls had the honour to make some inspirational

work for the main challenge.

The subject is Memories and in addition  you need to uses frames.

Most memories for me are precious, especially this picture of my two kids. My son has autism so not really a cuddler and doesn’t really like physical contact.

I wanted a nice picture from the both of them and he  spontaneously gave her a big hug.  Although they are grown up now ,this still is one of my favorite pictures.

I used some raisinframes I once bought in our local  dollar store, added some embellies and flatback pearls

 

Tucked some small frames behind the flowers

And a little frame peeping through a tear in the paper with a clock symbolizing how fast time goes by.

Thank you for visiting today

I hope I gave you some inspiration with this Lay out,  Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow  for some new gorgeous work of one of the other Maja Girls.

the papers I used are from the vintage summer basics, flowers from Wild orchid crafts  and the frames come from the local dollarstore.
