Hello friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share my newest Maja Designs creation. I have reverted back to a favourite collection this time around……. “Summertime”. With this beautiful collection I created a soft shabby layout full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers from Penny Lane Garden Collection. Petaloo are sponsoring Maja this month with their wonderful flowers…… thank you Petaloo !!

……………”Dream”………….

Oh how I loved this collection I think I have already mentioned that but it definitely is a favourite for me. As always my layout evolved slowly and didn’t finish off how I had imagined by I was quite happy with my end project.¬†Below are all the papers I used from this collection. Some of the papers were gessoed to help with the effect I was looking for. I have used lots of media and paints to colour my papers and Dusty Attic chipboards.

My background papers was firstly primed with gesso and then I laid down a run of 3D Gloss gel and over that some very distressed muslin. This was my starting point and from here I layered my page with photo matting papers from the Summertime collection and then the sepia toned photo over the top.

Around my photo I used some beautiful Leafy Stem Dusty Attic chipboards. To the right of the photo I added in a Arch Window also from Dusty Attic. These were all dressed in Crackle Pastes, inks (Distress Inks) and Prima Art Alchemy Green Gold Acrylic Paint. You can see above that I also added in some Art Stones.

I did a little stamping with a Carte Postal stamp at the side of my photo and very randomly with a script stamp.

For my title I have used a very old rub on that I added to some transparency paper and cut out. I have the hugest collection of rub-ons that I just can’t get enough of!!

You can see above that I also added some Texture Crackle Paste to my background page to help bring the project together. Lastly I went over my whole project dry brushing with white gesso to help keep this very muted and to of course keep the photo the centre of attention. This photo is of my youngest daughter which was taken by a friend at a school excursion a few years back now when she was only in prep. How time flies she is now a highschooler!!

Well that is all from me today. I so hope that you enjoyed my project and I hope to see you back here again very soon. Stay tuned for more design team prettiness tomorrow.

Take care and happy crafting!!Tina-sign

Hello there, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog!

Do you remember the First Communion exploding box I shared last time? That was a girl version, and I decided I need a boy verion as well ūüėČ And so I selected some blue and brown papers and here it is:

mdboxb

I used the Summertime papers – and believe it or not, my choice was mainly because of this gorgeous roses paper I chose for the box sides :) Just look how beautiful it is! I also added some Sofiero papers as the collections go well together :)

I selected flowers in matching colour for the box lid:

The inside of the box is mostly the same as the girl’s box:

And so there’s the stamped boy image with the cross and flower cluster:

…the strip of paper for sliding in money:

…and a chipboard chalice decorated with flowers:

Maja Design papers are perfect for elegant or formal occasions, their subtle, classic designs and delicate colour palettes perfectly match the chosen theme. I really like how this boy box turned out!

I used the following supplies:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Anemone; dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger;  wax string, bling, washi tape: my stash.

 

See you later!

Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,

Today I am futuring Camilla her beautiful girls on a 12 by 12 layout using the two Maja Design collections “I Wish” & “Summertime” I really love to combine those two. I took the brown out of the first collection and the blues from the second to compliment their pretty dresses. This layout has some playful circles {which would totally fit with the sweet girls on the picture} on them and some lovely flowers by Petaloo and My Little Birdy, I also added some new Dusty Attic chipboard designs.

I had a lot of fun using a bunch of mixed media products on my layout like sprays, stamps especially the stamps by Gabrielle Pollacco from 49 and Market. Don’t you just love this picture?? Camilla you have such lovely girls kind of jealous with a teenager boy in my household lol….

I also used a new stencil by Dusty Attic to compliment my layout and some blue spray by Lindy’s and prills…all the stitch parts are with a sewing machine but the stitches on the picture are by hand.

The card is for a boy. The colours from the newest collections fit perfectly here cause it was needed to use green colour. I added many layers, flowers and chipboard.
