You & Me

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

The weather has been quite unsteady recently, with cold wind, freezing rain and snow mixed with beautiful sunshine, which is rather typical for this time of the year in Poland 🙂 And so it happens that I’m sharing a winter-time layout on a beautiful spring day! But even though I used a photo taken during Christmas and a winter collection, Holiday in the Alps, with Maja papers characteristic versatility it’s all universal.

I first applied some handwriting pattern with a stencil and gold pearl paste upon the background Monochrome paper and then added a layered cluster of paper pieces and hand-made tags to mat the photo:

I added some flowers in between the layers and some epoxy stickers that perfectly match the stencil paste. Then I arranged the title with alpha stickers mounted on foam:

I completed the page with some metal and art clay elements and sequins for a bit of subtle glam:

I often use flowers in boy layouts and so I did here and I think it still looks pretty masculine 🙂 What do you think?

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stencil: Agateria; paste: Stamperia; flowers: Blue Fern Studios, Wild Orchid Crafts; metal pieces: Mitform; stickers: October Afternoon, Heidi Swapp; sequins: DpCraft.


That’s all for today, have a nice weekend and stay safe!

    You did an outstandiong job here as always Maja. I absolutely love your LO and totally agree, it´s quite okay to use flowers on a male LO, it looks pretty maskuline to me anyway too, and the rest of the decor sure gives it a perfect male look, that´s for sure.
    Your work is as usual just perfect and filled with loads of amazing detail and the colors, you´ve chosen here soooooo beautiful too.
    I really hope, that we´ll all soon get past these unstable days, and begin to get more sunny days to lift the spirit a lot with all of us.
    Have a wonderful sunday and an amazing week ahead now everyone.
