Hello and welcome today Maja Design friends. Tina with you here today to share my next Design Team post with you. It has been some time since I created for Maja and I so miss playing with the gorgeous papers. Today’s project was created using inspiration from one of my favourite Vintage Basics collections – Autumn. It was only when I was trimming the barcode from the base of this gorgeous patterned paper that I decided to add shades of purple as the barcode had the title ” A time forever etched in our hearts and memories”. Such a beautiful quote and I had intended to use it until I looked closely at the paper and saw in the bottom left the “Time Passes” in brown text. I decided to leave it as my title, nice and simple.

I used two sheets of the Vintage Autumn Basics No VII so that I could use both sides of the papers. And I also incorporated the purple sheet of Vintage Autumn Basics No VI BS. I love this combination of colours and I just couldn’t go past using them without a sepia coloured photo. I used a photo of my youngest from a trip to our Centenary Lakes around the goosepond. This was some years back but I do remember it well.

I dressed the first of the No VII paper using the B side firstly. I made a mix of pigment powder in Black Silver with some crackle paste through a Dusty Attic brick stencil. Once the crackle was dried I coloured over the stenciling with some Chalk Paint in Roman Pines. I also did some embossing of a script stamp in Antiquities Weathered White. I also did some stamping with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I cut some of the leftover papers in differing sizes to mount behind my photo. They were distressed sanded and inked with the Walnut Distress Ink.

I embellished with lots of mdf’s from i.craft Designs. Some were embossed and some were painted in chalk paints.

I hand dyed some muslin with a parisian rinse. This gives a gorgeous beige colour which contrasted beautifully with my Vintage Autumn papers. I also used a locket mould and beautiful florals from 49andMarket and icraft Designs. Also I added some pearls from Dusty Attic and finally some pretty mini prills in silver and some splashes of watered down white gesso.

And some more close-up pics for you .

Well that is all from me today. Thankyou so much for taking the time to pop by. I hope you have found some small piece of inspiration from my project today to help with your next crafting project.

Until next time take care and happy crafting.

Hugs

Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my November inspiration.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that amazing photo. I picked a paper from the gorgeous ”Vintage Autumn Basics” collection that was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose to use the back side of the ”No XXI” paper. I started by applying a coat of clear gesso on the background and then I created texture with an icing paste and a Stencil.

Made some stamping here and there and used a Lindy’s Gang spray to add color.

Next step was to paint all the Dusty Attic chipboards with the Finnabair acrylic paints.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass glitter and beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white gesso.

 

Paper used:

 

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello and welcome Maja fans. Tina Ollett with you today to share a project created using the gorgeous collection of Vintage Autumn Basics. I hope you enjoy this layout which I have titled

“Memories are timeless treasures of the heart”.

I decided to go with the colours of the clothes my little girl was wearing in the photo. She had camoflague shorts on so the greens in this were quite dark. To highlight this green I decided to lighten the papers by distressing and sanding all of the layers that I used for this project. I have listed the papers that I have used to do this project below.

No IV

no.VII BS

No. X bs

No. V

The addition of Dusty Attic chipboards were added in to help frame the photo. And adding this to the photo prompted me to wrap some garden vines and frames around the chipboards.

I have added in some moss and art stones. Here you can see the lovely distressed layers.

 I have also made some resin moulds of the bird and Window and Shutters. They are so cute. The bird above and the windows and shutters below.

Some more close-ups for you.

 

Thanks for popping by today. I will see you back here next month. Until then take care and happy scrapping.

 

Trick or Treat!

Hi everyone! It is me again, with a new Maja Card! This time I have been inspired by Halloween. When I was a child we never celebrated Halloween, I am not sure if I had heart about it. But in the last years it has been really popular here in Norway too. We also had some “scary” children on out door Wednesday evening asking for Trick or Treat.

I thought the darkest papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection would fit nice for a card like this.

The image is from Magnolia, and is coloured with Distress Ink, re-fillers and Markers. The white flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have added some white Gesso and some frantage.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

A tag made with love!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am enjoying working with the Vintage Autumn Basics collection. The papers are just so beautiful! I will show you which ones I used at the end of the post.

But first some photos of my tag. It is not always necessary to give a whole card, sometimes a tag can be just as nice to give someone. I have used the tag die from Sizzix for the main tag.

All the other dies I have used are from Magnolia. The image is from Magnolia’s Class Trip Collection 2018. And I have coloured her in matching colours to the lovely papers.

Here comes some close ups of the details on the tag. I have used Distress ink for my colouring.

I have put some White Gesso on to the papers here and there.

Between the layers on the camera I have put som 3D foam. And some Maja papers together with the Raven Bazzill. I think it worked out nicely.

Here is the list of papers used:
