A very good morning to you, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog :)

The summer is coming to an end, but we shouldn’t let our spirits go down! Today I have two birthday cards to share, and their common element is the blue palette and a motif connected with flying high above :)

The first one features an angel wing in the flower cluster:

I layered papers from the Vintage Frost collection, placed the sentiment stamp with a button in the centre and surrounded it with flowers and leaves. I also added some pearl brads and liquid pearls.

The central motif of the second card is an air balloon surrounded by flowers:

I used scraps of the Vintage Romance papers to make a shabby patchwork background, placed the chipboard layered balloon upon it and decorated it with mini roses and crystal flourishes.

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog :)

Today I have a sweet baby layout to share with you:

mdangel

I combined the Vintage Frost and Vintage baby collections to create a delicate girly layout with my sweet niece. I created a layered background placing a square in the centre of the striped paper and adding a punched decorative square on top. Then I added a die-cut doily as a decorative corner between the photos:

I matted the photos with papers and tags from the Ephemera sheet, and then adde a couple of balloons I cut out from the New Arrival paper:

The flower cluster includes paper straws with metallic foil patterns and gold metallic drops:

mdangel3

I made the title with foam sticker letters, embellishing the letter “a” with a molded angel wing and added a signature strip from one of the papers as a decorative border:

mdangel4

As a cherry on top, I stamped “You are perfect” in the lower corner.

I really love how the papers and patterns compliment the cute photos of the baby girl :) What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: letters: American Crafts; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts, my stash; die: Prima; punch: Martha Stewart, mold: Prosvet; stam: ScrapBerry’s; paper straws, gold drops: mys stash.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog a new layout featuring a photo taken in Rennes (France). This head has a long story as it has been stolen several time.

Reminisce_PB

I started to add a thin layer of clear gesso to help the paper with all the inks I will add later. Then I added a design with a stamp and clear embossing powder.  Then I colored the background with different shades of brown and black.

Reminisce_detail2_PB

I covered the chipboards with a white crackle paste and I aged them with Twinkling H2O.

Reminisce_detail1_PB

I colored the tip of flowers with two tones of Distress Inks and sprayed them allowing the inks to move along the paper.

Reminisce_detail3_PB

I colored the leaves with the same Twinkling H2O  I used for the background and added some silver Mica Powder.

Reminisce_detail4_PB

I finished the page with Glass Glitter and Micro Beads.

Hello SweetiesToday I’m up on Maja Design blog with a monochromatic layout. I chose to work with a beige shading to highlight these photo of the Saint-Martin-d’Ardéche’s bridge (France).

Bridge by Pascale B

I started with a layer of clear gesso to protect the background. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

Bridge2 by Pascale B

While the crackle paste was drying, I chose different papers to go under my photo and distress them with a distress tool.

Bridge2_detail2 by Pascale B

When the design was dry, I splattered some watered gesso on the background, then I added some Rust mica powder mixed in water and I let everything dry.

Bridge2_detail3 by Pascale B

I covered all the embellishments (flowers, leaves, die-cut and metallic embellishments) with gesso and dry them. Then I colored everything with some Rust mica powder.

Bridge2_detail4 by Pascale B

I added some some random stamping and glued all the embellishments.

To finish the layout, I added some glass glitter and micro beads.
