Hello everyone!

Kerstin is back with a vintage layout. I used a very old photo from my ancestors, a beautiful memory for our family. 

 

The latest amazing Maja Design Collection ‘Celebrate’ http://majadesign.nu/products/celebration/
was very suitable to my photo to this very special day so many years ago.

 

 It’s always a good idea to create with frames on scrapbooking layout.

I added a printed chipboard frame on the lower right side with a very wise saying in it.

The second frame around the photo was made with cutting dies and old crafty paper in weathered look.

 some details
fussy cutting flowers from paper sheet ‘You’re invited’ and flowers with
Sizzix Thinlits die ‘Small tattered flowers’ from the papper sheet ‘Glamour bs’
a frame made with craft paper, that’s leftovers from a cutting die
a printed chipboard frame with a wise saying on transparent foil from Scrap FX
Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

The gift of friendship.

Hello sweet Maja fans..

Today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration.

This time I bring you a card made with  the gorgeous papers of the vintage summer basics papers.

I love this collection , it’s certainly one of my favorite.

We had some very nice weather the last few days and everything in nature just exploded,  flowers everywhere and the air is filled with their sweet scent.

that inspired me to make this card bursting with and from flowers.

I used flowers from Wild orchid crafts , pins ,ribbon and brad are from my private stash.

Thank you very much for your visit, hope to see you again next time.

Hello friends!

Soon is Mother’s Day and I want to give a little attention to my mother. I created a mixed media frame in a delicate shabby chic look.

 

I used a simply frame as basic. Firstly I made some ornaments with the help of moulds and air drying modeling clay.

These were glued to the frame with heavy gel medium, I added some metallic sticker too.

Then I painted everything over with Chalky Finish ‘Vintage’ paint from DecoArt.

Now put some heavy white gesso over the embellishments to bring out the texture and details on the frame.

some details

I used paper sheet ‘Birthday’ as background and the beautiful lady from ‘Emphemera’ 12 x 12

little lady was a cut out from the 6 x 6 paper back

I’ve always loved the combination of these colours and the beautiful ‘Celebration’ paper is probably my favourite in the stash.

Cut to fit and complemented with a metal frame from Prima and some blooms, the new frame in altered art was finished.

Suitable to this frame I made two wooden handpainted candle holds with her favourite flowers

and a irish crochet doily.

Thanks for your visit!

Have a beautiful time!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

You know I love the Denim & Friends collection as it’s just perfect for all masculine projects! But if you think it’s JUST a masculine collection, I hope to prove you wrong 😉

Yes, a totally girly stuff! Soft and romantic frame with three of my nieces in the photo.

First I assembled a chipboard shadowbox frame and then covered it with Maja papers, inside and outside, inking and distressing all the pieces. For the front coevr I chose to colour with mists as it is too intricate to cover it with papers.

Then I placed a chipboard clockface in the bacgkround, added the photo and surrounded it with embellishments – hand-cut tags, a tiny banner with an opalescent acrylic heart:

…mulberry flowers, resin heart and bird, a butterfly flair button:

…a delicate twig winding around the frame side:

The title is a chipboard piece too:

I also added a flower cluster on the outer side, addding guipure lace:

I’ll add some journaling on the back, which is for now covered with papers:

 

 

 

And here’s my list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: shadowbox frame, sentiment: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima; resin embellishments: Prima, button: Lemoncraft; mists: Tattered Angels, golden metallic paint: Martha Stewart.

 

So what do you think of such version of a masculine collection? 🙂 I really like the way it turned out and how the patterns compliment the photo.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

Welcome creative friends!

Kerstin is back with a new springtime layout.

After a very long cold period, it finally gets warmer and the daffodils in my garden start to bloom. I love this time, finally, more sun shines again and gives hope for new life. There is a lot to do in the garden right now, but you should also let all five go straight and just enjoy this short time.

This time I used a monochrome paper as background, I love this neutral papers because

you will have so many opportunities to create a selfmade mixed media background.

I used a brick stencil with white gesso, old music paper sheets, stamps, leftovers from craft paper,

Glimmer Mist Spray (Sunflower) from Tattered Angels, Distress Ink Stain from Ranger,

paper frames from La Blanche and wonderful flowers from 49 and Market.

some details

I hope you like this little spring layout inspiration

with monochrome paper from the ‘Shades of Celebration’ collection,

I will return on 18th of April with a

Tutorial 🙂

Happy crafting!
