Hello lovely Maja Design friends,

Happy 1st of August I am so grateful you are here with us today, for today I have another layout to share with you. Lately I really love to use a little mixed media on my layouts like combining the very romantic stuff with a darker twist to it. This time I made all the beautiful chipboard pieces black which I later on painted to my likes. For this layout I used a picture of both our kids {Kevin & Abbey} Kevin was reading a book and I thought it was so sweet that I took a picture. 

Today was Just Adorable:

All the pretty chipboard are treated with a layer of black gesso. Then I used several waxes and a dabber brush to make it look like real metal. In the end I added some color with acrylic paints to match my beautiful Maja Design papers. For my layout I have used the “Miles Apart” collection and a new mould to frame my sweet picture with. For the background I have used a stencil and some sprays.

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely Maja Design papers and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny week!
