photo frame *Maja Design*

Hi all! My first project for Maja Design in this new year.
So happy to stay with this fabulous team for another year!
First of all, I want to wish all of my creative friends a wonderful, healthy and creative 2015!!!!
I want to begin this new year with a project I made for my daughter.
As you might know she is studying in America and this mom is seriously missing her! LOL!
I wanted to make something special so I created this photo frame and added the big handle, a bit symbolic so I can always carry her with me, like a little suitcase. I'm a bit sentimental, sorry! LOL
Btw...this girl is having the time of her live, so this mom is happy! :)

Made this photo frame with the gorgeous Vintage Autumn collection.
You can find the best embellies at the most strange places:  found those big wooden buttons at a local christmas market last year! :)
I used No.I for the front and No.XII for the front torn paper and the sides.
The pink rolled flowers were made with the heritage paper sheet.

My beautiful daughter.
Added some lace around the frame.
The chipboard, painted white with gesso, is from Dusty Attic.

These beautiful white fabric flowers are from 13arts.

Added some pearls, a Tim Holtz clock and Prima handles.

A metal handle from an old cabinet.
Gave it a touch with gesso.

This metal leaf and the dangle on the side were found at a local home decor store.


Papers used:
No.I, No.XII and heritage sheet (pink rolled flowers).

Enjoy your day!

art journal *Shimmerz*

After seeing all the gorgeous art journal pages I decided to give it a go too.
Don't have anything to show you yet but next year I will try to make some pages.
Made the front cover of this A4 journal with lots and lots of Shimmerz!! 

A used my favorite technique to start with:
Glueing paper kitchen towel on the journal with gesso.
Embellished with lots of flowers, dew drops, beads, buttons, metal pieces and a metal frame.
Spraying and painting with all the colors and added some water to let them run.
And the last step: a coat with gesso for the finishing touch.

For this journal I used the following colors:
Coloringz: No yoking
Spritz: Bed of Roses
Spritz: Plum Pudding
Vibez: Princess
Vibez: Jeni B Blue
Blingz: Flashee Fushia
Shimmerz: Sunny
Shimmerz: Magenta
Shimmerz: Key Lime
Shimmerz: Coffee

Here are some close-ups:
Some chipboard letters.

Some dew drops as an extra element.

Using up some flowers from my stash.

Added some small pearls for extra texture.

This gorgeous metal frame was found at a local flea market.

Chipboard letters from Imaginarium Design.

An extra touch with gesso using a sponge.

Randomly splattered some paint.

I love the way the light touch of gesso shows the cracks of the paper towel.





Enjoy your day!
