Goodmorning lovely Maja Friends,

Since December was such a roller coaster for my family I am so happy that January is upon us. A new start and some of my wishes will come true in 2018. Happy New Year everyone….I will be giving some workshops using Maja Design papers this year so that is awesome, for today I have a 12×12 layout to share with you all. For this layout I used the pretty “Joyous Winterdays” collection oh how I love that collection.

For this layout I also used some different flowers then I normally do the white ones are by 49 and Market and the other from a different brand. This layout consists out of three layers and I used the green and blue shades again I really love that color combination. to fill up my flower clusters I also added some pine cones and some die leaves.

All That Glitters & Great Joy Magical World Layout’s

Goodmorning lovely Maja Designs Fans,

Today I’d like to show you two 8×8 layout’s made with the amazing new “Joyous Winterdays” I am so in love with this collection because it is really versatile and there are such great patterns on the paper sheets. On the first layout I used the red and green tones in the collection and I named it “All That Glitters”….These layouts are all made with dies to show off the beautiful papers. What is great about that, that your flowers are the same tones as the rest of your layout. I also added some snow accents on the flowers clusters and on the cinnamon piece.

At the end I added some white spray to make it more as a snow effect and used some cream prills on top of the distressed honeycomb die. The centers of my flowers are made out of a metallic flatback gem…..also I added those white fussy balls to spice up the flower clusters.

For my second layout I used the blue and green tones with a touch of cream papers.

On the background of this layout I sprayed some white ink again after that I added a stencil with stars…..then I added the picture and the already prepaired flowers {I made a bunch of them while I was watching tv that is so relaxing} at the end I sprayed some glitter spray on my layout but sadly you don’t see that on the picture.

Welcome friends!
Baby, it’s could outside … because it’s Winter time 🙂

Cozy time is coming! Time for long evenings with candlelight and good food. Time for

warm sweaters and cuddly socks.

I’m also a big fan from unique papers without motifs, because you have so many opportunities to create your background with stamps or watercolours and it’s always a perfect combination to all the other beautiful delicate papers from Maja Design.
First I primed the background with clear gesso, then I started by working my background with blue and white spray color ink and added some winter feeling stamps, like snowflakes, snowman, old trees.
used Maja Design papers from following collections

Joyous-Winterdays-P

942-Frost

946-Blizzard

Mono-Winterdays-P

955-Ice-blue-w-es

Denim-P

906-Wood

895-Stars-Stripes-bs

some close up’s

I love the color combi blue and brown with accents of white and black

some little silver stars for a bright and shiny effect

together with a leftover from a cuddly knit ribbon

and some cut stripes from the ‘Wood’ paper
