Hello and welcome today Maja Design friends. Tina with you here today to share my next Design Team post with you. It has been some time since I created for Maja and I so miss playing with the gorgeous papers. Today’s project was created using inspiration from one of my favourite Vintage Basics collections – Autumn. It was only when I was trimming the barcode from the base of this gorgeous patterned paper that I decided to add shades of purple as the barcode had the title ” A time forever etched in our hearts and memories”. Such a beautiful quote and I had intended to use it until I looked closely at the paper and saw in the bottom left the “Time Passes” in brown text. I decided to leave it as my title, nice and simple.
I used two sheets of the Vintage Autumn Basics No VII so that I could use both sides of the papers. And I also incorporated the purple sheet of Vintage Autumn Basics No VI BS. I love this combination of colours and I just couldn’t go past using them without a sepia coloured photo. I used a photo of my youngest from a trip to our Centenary Lakes around the goosepond. This was some years back but I do remember it well.
I dressed the first of the No VII paper using the B side firstly. I made a mix of pigment powder in Black Silver with some crackle paste through a Dusty Attic brick stencil. Once the crackle was dried I coloured over the stenciling with some Chalk Paint in Roman Pines. I also did some embossing of a script stamp in Antiquities Weathered White. I also did some stamping with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
I cut some of the leftover papers in differing sizes to mount behind my photo. They were distressed sanded and inked with the Walnut Distress Ink.
I embellished with lots of mdf’s from i.craft Designs. Some were embossed and some were painted in chalk paints.
I hand dyed some muslin with a parisian rinse. This gives a gorgeous beige colour which contrasted beautifully with my Vintage Autumn papers. I also used a locket mould and beautiful florals from 49andMarket and icraft Designs. Also I added some pearls from Dusty Attic and finally some pretty mini prills in silver and some splashes of watered down white gesso.
And some more close-up pics for you .
Well that is all from me today. Thankyou so much for taking the time to pop by. I hope you have found some small piece of inspiration from my project today to help with your next crafting project.
Until next time take care and happy crafting.
Once again you made an absolut fabulous layout here, that really speaks to the viewer. I love how you´ve used all these amazing mdf pieces and decorate them to match it all here, it looks really awesome, and I just LOVE the pearls and the white shine, that´s showing all over it, so beautiful and shabby looking. Everything looks gorgeous and goes just perfect together here. Stunning work, well done once again Tina.
Have a wonderful week and stay safe out there everyone.
Absolutely gorgeous. I love this page.
