Welcome everyone!

The strawberries are ripe, a wonderful time in the garden,

which always reminds me of my childhood.

There was nothing better than picking them myself and putting them right in mouth.

I was inspired to create a mixed media project on a canvas. For that I used some papers from the ‘Summertime’ collection. There you can find a lot of  red suitable papers. The Maja Design papers are always of a very good quality, they are firm and stable and therefore also ideally suited for colour games. It is advisable to always start with a layer of clear gesso, so that the paper is sealed and does not curl.

Hello Maja Friends,

August – my favorite Summer month, though it is the last before the dull and rainy days come. However I like it more than any month.
So that is why I enjoy looking through the pictures taken this summer and to create something that is associated with this particular month.

I combined several Summer collections for my Layout – Summertime, Summer Crush and Life in the Country.

I tried to keep the red and greens on my layout, using the paper layers, and added some embellishments of yellow and orange.

I also stretched the colors from the photo – soft blue and pumpkin and played with the acrylic paints .

I added some fussy cutting, though I mixed the greens and reds from almost the same patterned papers.

So it’s time to enjoy each and every day this Summer, hope you will follow my advice.

Products used:

Prima Marketing flowers, 2Crafty chipboard, Wycinanka Chipboard, Pentart acrylic Paints.

Look for cooling?!

Hello friends,

It’s time for a new inspiration summer layout.

I love to use structure paper and try out new ideas.

I had some leftovers from a white wallpaper and thought, a beautiful texture,

can wallpaper be inked in?, which color is suitable?

I used a piece of wallpaper in the centre of my maritim layout,

a perfect addition for me to the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

 

 

some details

 

I tried with Glimmer Mist from Tatterd Angels and I must say, it’s a wonderful amazing effect, because it doesn’t spread evenly

and the end result will be very natural.

I used also some cutting dies from Joy craft (waves, kelp) and added some

handmade embellishmets made with molds and modelling clay.

I wish you all a wonderful summertime!

Hello friends!

Today a new layout as memory on wonderful, relaxed days by the sea. It’s very hot here and I wish I could be there now. So it was a pleasure for me to think on the refreshing sea breeze, clear air and restful moments and tranquillity.

I was inspired from the wonderful blue shade from the paper sheet 1934 (Vintage Summer Basics), the right colour and background and absolutely suitable to my photo from our sunshine dog ‘Filou’. Then I cut out two children (Playing at the beach) and used paper sheet ‘Casual’ for cutting dies. Three various collection, but the colours are always tone in and can be wonderfully combined.

 

I also used some chipboards (Scrap FX, Blue Fern Studios) cutting dies (Joy Craft), background stamps(49 and Market) and very importantly for me shells, a natural starfish, baltic sea sand and a wooden seahorse. I love it to use such natural products
then it feels like you’re there yourself.
