Hello boys and girlies!

I was inspired to create a new mixed media layout.

 Our summer is very hot and you can only think on cool water,

ice and dreamy beaches with palm trees.

 🙂 A day in paradise 🙂

I used some beautiful papers from our latest ‘Denim & Girls’ paper collection. ‘My favourite Jeans as background and some leftovers for the work with cutting dies.

Hi everyone! I am back with a Summer card for you. I really hope you are enjoying the Summer. Here in Norway it is raining at the moment. And I wish for some sunny days.

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, on water colour paper. I use a paper called Bockingford 300g. It has a really smooth surface which is perfect for the Distresses. Can you spot which papers I have used? Yes, it is the lovely Denim & Girls papers!

I have cut out the flowers from those papers, ofcourse! Then using dies from Magnolia. I cut out the flowers, then I spray the paper with water, curl them up, and let them to dry. Then you get the crunchy look. I also paint over them with white Gesso.

Under you get a better look of how the card is built up.

And those gorgeous flowers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,

Hello Maja Design Fans, hope you are enjoying your Summertime, as I do

I am looking forward to my vacation by the Sea, and reviewing the pictures taken past Summer.

I did some fussy cutting from the papers Summertime collection. I like it has the florals and marine theme papers.

 

I also used the die cut frames to create the place for my 3 photo cards and made some coloring on the background

I’ve added only 2 flowers as the embellishments. The papers are great to create your own embellishments , I like especially the bicycles.

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.

 Flowers everywhere

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.
