Today..

Hello Maja fans, welcome to the blog. Today I have a layout to share with you that I have created using some papers from the “Enjoying Outdoors” collection.

For the main background I have used the “Beautiful Trees” paper from that collection. Such a lovely shade of earthy green, my favourite colour. :)

All of the chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard.

I cut a tag out of the “Tags & Journalling” paper, also from the same collection too & popped it in among my layers.  I have also used lots of gorgeous flowers too.

If you look close you will see I have actually scrunched the paper a little, I wet it under the tap, scrunched it up like this & then dried it off. Wetting it just makes it easier to do this technique. When dry I also distressed the edges a little as well. It just creates a nice textural element to the layout I think.

After doing that I then stuck it to a piece of the “Woodlands” paper, from the same collection. I think the stripe makes such a nice contrast. I also used some of the “Woodlands” stripe behind the photo too.

I have listed the papers used below. Hope this helps you.

The one on the left is the “Woodlands” paper, the middle one is the “Beautiful Trees” paper & the one on the right is the “Tags & Journalling Cards”. These are all from the Enjoying Outdoors collection.

Until next time.

Hi my name is Di Garling. I am married to a very patient man, I have two grown up sons, two grandchildren & a little dog. I owned & operated a Scrapbook shop for eight years here in Australia until I recently sold it & retired. I think retirement is the best kept secret. I love it, it gives me lots of time to enjoy my craft. I still teach scrapbooking & cardmaking once or twice a week, so all in all I am as busy as ever & wouldn't have it any other way.
