''Dream a Little Dream'' - DT Layout for Maja Design December Inspiration


Hello dear friends!

Today, I'm up on the Maja Design blog and I have a new layout to share with you. 
A Christmas page made with the new collection ”Joyous Winterdays”.


 As usual, I found that photo on Pinterest and combined it with two papers of that gorgeous collection, lots of beautiful flowers, some chipboards and several Christmas embellishments. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.


For my background, I used the ”Pick a Tree” paper on the back side and made two layers on it with torn pieces from the ”Outdoors” paper  using both sides of it. First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with snowflake paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s sprays ”Sea Grass Green” and ”Rusty Lantern Lime”.


I painted the snowflake chipboards with the opal magic ''Aqua-Rose'' acrylic paint. The flourish chipboards and the title was also painted with the ''Fairy Wings'' acrylic paint sparks. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.


When everything was glued down, I made some splatters with white gesso diluted with some water.



Papers used:
  




That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

''5 Forever'' - DT Layout for Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Challenge & More Than Words Challenge Blog



Hello dear friends!

We finally are on the last month of this year and new challenges are up on the Lindy's Stamp Gang 
and the More Than Words challenge blogs. 

As you propably have already guess this time I combined these two challenges because they were matching perfectly.

  


 Word Inspiration - FAMILY 
Creative Challenge - NUMBERS

 In my mind, FAMILY and Christmas are tightly connected, so when I saw that word, I decided to create a Christmasy layout. I used a photo of a baby to represent my three kids when they were so little on their first Christmas. I added the NUMBER 5 for the creative challenge as we are 5 in our family. 



Here are some close ups...


I used the ''Ephemera'' paper from the Maja Design ''Joyous Winterdays'' collection. 


To start, I covered my page with clear gesso. When it dried, I created texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Next, I used the ''TiffanyLou Blue'', ''Medieval Gold Glitz'' and the ''Poinsettia Red Gold'' Lindy’s sprays to color my page.


I heat embossed the ''Deer Head'' chipboard with the ''Caesar's Gold'' Lindy's Gang embossing powder and all the other chipboards with the ''Desert Moon Turquoise'' powder. Then, I rubbed a little white gold wax on the star chipboard. All the chipboards used are 2Crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.


When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and made some splatters with white acrylic artist ink.



Thank you so much for your time!
