Hello Maja fans  Lenet here and to day I bring you this altered frame  I bought at the local dollar store.

It was a simple grey  3D  that I wanted to give a weathered look like it has been laying at the beach for a while because I wanted to use these pics. of my friend and her kids that were taken at the beach.

So I distressed  the frame by sanding it and than dry brushed it with Finnabair art basics Plaster paste and made some little termite holes in it.

I made the little pegs that hold the pictures grey with chalkgrey Ayeeda mist from 13@rts and dry brushed them also with the plaster paste

For the back ground I used Vintage Summer Basics1936 as the sky and cut the fence from Vintage Summer Basics 1905

 

The create the sand I used  Finnabair artstones mixed with artbasic 3D Matte Gel Transparent and pushed some litte shells in it.

A little seastar  and some fishingnets in the corners to finished it off.

 

Thank you for watching and hope to see you back

Hello Sweeties

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog for the last time. After 4 years, it’s time for me to say goodbye and it’s never easy, but don’t worry, you will continue to see me on the web. I want to thank Marie again for having me for such a long time, her kindness, and for her generosity.
And for my last project, I made a layout featuring the Vintage Basics collections: I used the Summer and Spring collections. I work with another of my family treasure: on the photo, taken by my maternal grandfather, you can see his mother with his brother.

First I stamped randomly with a dark brown ink and different stamps. When done, I primed the background with clear gesso.

I mixed together a brown magical with white crackle paste to add a design with a stencil. To give the effect of a peeling design I used my palette knife to remove some part of the design. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.

In the meantime, I soaked some flower chipboards in order to give them more dimension and texture. I gently pulled apart the edges to add more texture. After drying, I primed them with white gesso and I used blue and brown inks to add some colors.

I just added some gold shimmer to the white flowers and some brown ink to the leaves. I colored also some leaves chipboards with the brown ink as well as a mix of different sizes of Art Stones.

When the crackle paste was dry, I added some colors with the same inks to the background. Next, I cut a few papers to add under the photo before gluing all the embellishments.

To finish the layout I add some fine glitters on top of the flowers chipboards and the Art Stones.

Hi everyone! Here comes a lollipop card I made for a friend of mine. I have used some lovely papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. Here comes some photos I took a lovely Summer day.

To make the card, I first start by folding two accordions 30 x 7 cm. I fold at every cm. Then I glue the two papers together and get a long accordion. And after that I make a circle with it, by gluing it to a paper underneath.

All the gorgeous flowers was a gift from Petaloo some time ago. I got so many flowers, that I still have many left after making some projects for their cooperation with Maja Design. The butterflies are cut out from the pattern paper (Vintage Spring Basics). The image is coloured with Distress Ink.

Some secret envelopes. Made from a Magnolia die, using beautiful papers from Maja Design.

The text (from Stempelglede) is embossed on craft paper (translated: Have a lovely birthday).

Here is a list of the papers used:

 

With love,

Hello Sweeties

Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basic collection. I chose a photo of the Daum Venus aux Tiroirs by Salvador Dali.

Blue Venus by Pascale B.

I stamped here and there with a grey ink before priming the background with clear gesso. I added also a very thin layer of white gesso to tone down the blue.

Next, I added a design with a stencil and Paper texture paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkle two embossing powders: one pearl, the other silver that I heat set.

Then, I added some colors: black ink, white ink, and steel mica to add some contrast.

While the inks were drying, I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored with a blue ink and embossed the big ones. I covered the other ones with a silver foil. I colored some flowers in blue.

I cut some papers in the Home for Holidays collection to add under the photo. Before gluing all the embellishments, I stamped some text here and there with a black ink.

To finish the layout, I added silver microbeads and glitters.
