Today I’m u Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I chose a photo taken during my trip to Prague of the Memorial to the Victims of Communism. The memorial is the work of Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek. It’s a truly magnificent memorial. A sad one, though.
First, I primed the background with clear gesso. I mixed together some copper crackle paste with the brown Rust effect paste. I used the mix with a stencil to add a design and I let dry. I didn’t expect the crackle to appear as I mixed the crackle
Goodmorning & happy Friday Maja Fans,
Today I have a layout to share with you all in honor of being a mom. In life we all want our kids to grow up and be amazing young people and trust in what they can achieve…..Our boy is a charming 12 year old kiddo and I love him to the moon and back. Yesterday was a disaster day of creating that I tore a whole layout apart and threw it away! Am I the only one? Or are there more of you that have that sometimes. A couple of day’s ago I also deleted all my inbox messages from my hotmail too….so I think I am having a bad week lol. Hopefully all will get better soon so I don’t feel like I do now which is rushed…
I used the pretty Nyhavn sheet as my background and added two other colors to make the picture pop of my layout. It’s totally a different style then what I was creating before I trew it away….because that was all pink and girly. I really love to create with pink but this time it didn’t work at all. I used some stencils on my background with some black paste this time.
All the chipboard peices are treated with ink, spray’s, acrylic paint and embossing powder and they are all by Dusty Attic. I also added a flair too I am totally hooked on those at the moment.
The flowers I used are from three different companies which are 49 and Market, Petaloo and Prima. I love making flower clusters like these. They add so much to your page at least that is what I think do you agree with me??
Maja Design papers used: Vintage Summer Basics collection: 1934 bs, 1899 bs & 1904 bs, Crea Diem collection: Den Oersattliga Tiden, Nyhavn collection: King’s Square.
Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my post today, and I have inspired you to play with your lovely Maja Design goodies have a lovely weekend…..
Hello and welcome Maja followers!
Tina Ollett with you here today to share my next Design Team creation. Last time I was here I shared something a little rustic /country, so this time around I have decided on something Shabby Chic to showcase this gorgeous photo of my two girls. And what better collections to use to create this with, but the ever gorgeous
Vintage Spring Basics and the Vintage Summer Basics.
Just perfect to create that pretty shabby page.
This I have titled “Adore”………
I used the Vintage Spring Basics 7th of May as my background page but I firstly cut a photo mat from the centre to save on paper. I then layered torn Vintage Summer Basics 1922 and the Vintage Springs Basics 4th of May over this. When creating shabby layouts I like to leave large areas of the white paper core to give it an complete border and it also saves on sanding or inking.
Here you can see the layered torn papers and above that the photo mats with distressed and sanded edges.
I have layered over the top of the background page two sections of lace. I have run a piece of seam binding through the top piece of the lace and I tied it in a bow at the right side of the photo where it hangs to hold the chipboard title “Adore”. This chipboard piece was simply dressed in gesso and Liquid Pearls was swiped across and around the edges to highlight the titled.
I love to create flower clusters, and this one was no exception. I used leftovers from many of my flower baskets that sit under my desk. They were all whitewashed with gesso to keep in with the shabby chic design. To complete the layout I added in some Kaisercraft paper leaves, a Dusty Attic frame which was dressed in Platinum Liquid Pearls and cut into several pieces and also a little cheesecloth.
Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed popping by. Until next time, take care and happy crafting.
