“Thinking of you” by Tina Ollett

Hello and welcome back Maja Design friends. I hope this post finds you safe and well. Today I am back to share my next project using the gorgeously stunning paper collection of “Miles Apart”. The pastel colours of this collection always lead me to using Sepia photos. And close at hand was this photo of me from our wedding day quite some years ago. I have never used it before, so I am really glad that I chose this range to scrap with it.

I selected the sheets below to start off my project. I used the bs of “A few words” for my background page. I love this piece with all the additional handwriting and slight colouring over the background. I made lots of layers using “Keep in touch” and “Keeping busy” both a and b sides of each was used. I distressed my papers and layered them up using old board. I also tore some sections to run across the background page.

I chose to use 2 sheets of “The little things”. From the first sheet I did a lots of fussing cutting of the flowers and leaves as you will see above. I used a second pieces to add some layers in my project behind the chipboards.

The layering of this project was the most time consuming part this time around. I also used chipboards to help add more layers in. Each of these pieces were coloured with relief paste and sanded back to give the worn shabby look of time gone by. I also added in some extra flowers from my stash and a little muslin and flower pearls to keep with the prettiness of the papers. I have a few closeup photos for you below.


Amongst all the distressed layers I have added in some charms, muslin and flower pearls to keep it simple and shabby. I also added in a little more of the relief paste around some of the paper layers and over this some random stamping using a script stamp.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed my post and stay tuned for more Design Team gorgeousness very soon.

Happy Crafting

    I really love this project. Your photo is lovely and the papers and add ons are perfect, but can you tell me how you store your pages. If you keep them in a scrap album don’t they get damaged. Is there a special way of keeping them?

  • WAUW this is so beautiful Tina. I love the many soft layers, that makes it sooo romantic, and that little deer, that is peeking out among the flowers are just gorgeous.
    All together it givesds such a romatic and stunning look, and I feel all warm at heart just by looking at this, and I can almost feel the joy, you must have felt on that big day too. Truly amazing and so sooo beautiful. I love it.
    Have a wonderful week out there everyone and loads of crafty fun too, I hope.
