Hello again!

Today I’m back with another Christmas layout which I’ve chosen to frame with white, blue and glitter.

I layered stripes of paper to create focus on the right hand side. I have added some texture in two steps – first using a diamond stencil with gesso, then I applied heavy gel paste mixed with dry glitter using another stencil with a flourish pattern.


I tried to balance the white with adding some more colour, using watercolours in similar tones.DSC_0008 MD

Hello Sweeties,
Today I want to share with you my very first project as a member of the Maja Design DT.

I started with my frame. I covered it first with Gesso and used a stencil to add a design to it with heavy Gesso. When dry, I added a layer of black Gesso. I let it dry. I then dry-brushed the whole frame with white Gesso and started to add some colors with pink and silver Silks with the same dry-brush technic. I finished the frame with silver wax.


I used a punch to cut the little hydrangea. I added a little bit of glitter in the center.


The chipboard as simply been embossed with Aged Silver from Stampendous.


After embossing the butterflies, I used a stamp to give them so texture, then I colored them.
