Hi there Maja fans. Thanks for stopping by. Today I have another layout to share with you featuring my sweet little grandaughter Mia. I have used some papers from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection.
For my background I have used the “1934” paper from the Vintage Summer Basics collection & I have layered it over the top of the “1933” paper, that is the gorgeous floral one that is peeping out of both sides of my layout. It is a little hard to see unfortunately. (Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the papers clearly).
Also behind the photo I have added lots of different strips of various Maja Design papers, then I wiped them over with some gesso before brushing on some pink coloured mist to contrast with the lovely aqua background paper. All the chipboard is from 2Crafty Chipboard.
This is a great fun little technique as it is a good way to use up lots of your scraps & it also adds great textural interest to the page. Plus the Maja papers are so nice & thick that they are perfect for using with mixed media. Last step was to stencil some pattern over the page using a stencil & some texture paste.
Once the background was all dry I proceeded to add my photo, chipboard & of course, lots of flowers.
These are the two papers I have used.
The paper on the left is the “1934” paper & the one on the right is the “1933” paper.
Well thats all from me today. Until next time.
Love theses papers and the page is lots of beautiful layers of tattered loveliness.
Thanks so much Sylvia, glad you like it. 🙂
Another breath taking layout Di, totally love your work.

Your layout design is gorgeous! But your granddaughter sure outshines the page!!
Thanks for your kind words about my Grandaughter Susan and I am glad you like my layout too. 🙂
Exquisite page Di! I love all of the layers and the ruffling you did on the sides looks amazing. Great use of the dainty colors to highlight the beautiful photo of your granddaughter.
Thanks for your kind words Kathy. So glad you like it. 🙂
