Let's have fun with Maja Design

Good morning !

- Be brave, be happy , be a dreamer -
Every thing is dancing to my whistle ;-) 

that was my motto for this funny layout.

I had a lot of fun with this old and very cool photo and thought 
our newest paper collection 'Celebration' is more as suitable 
for a vintage layout, which should make a little bit good mood
 in our gray everyday life.

I used our latest beautiful collection 'Celebration'

Happy days!

Best friends forever

Hi friends!

I want to share a mixed media layout in grunge style. 
That's one of my favourite colour combination's.

Dusty Attic February Moodboard
I was inspired from this amazing colour scheme and the masculine industrial charakter in connection with denim
 13@rts #63 Friends forever
I used one of my favourites from 13arts the Rainbow color Brown, love this powder because you will have so many opportunities to use this on a vintage layout

More than words Forever and Heart
Child Friendships are something very special and can last a lifetime, I use hearts as wooden embellishments and above the photo as frame

Happy crafting!

Steampunk Bag


and I'm back with a new inspiration for you. 

You know I love to try some new ideas and to leave my comfort zone.
 The time was right to create with fabric. 
Before it was a very simple cotton bag and now it's a very special bag :-)

 I use an amazing stencil with some fabric colors from DecoArt, 
this paint is very soft and flexible to the touch, the colours 'Lamp Black', 'Dark Chocolate' and 'Burnt Sienna' were also suitable for a faux rust effect.

 some details

The metallic silver effect was made with a Heat Transfer foil. 

My  teamies at SASPC have come up with many 
inspiring and different versions
on the theme this time.
Please have a look and feel you inspired to create your own
steampunk or industrial project
We are looking forward to see your new creations!

Let's go shopping :-)

You're invited - Cards and Tags with Maja Design

Welcome friends!

Valentine's day is just around the corner, 
the right time for me to make some cards and tags for good friends,
 because it's not only the day for romantics and those in love,
also to remember on beautiful and happy moments with loving people.

As I saw our newest paper collection 'Celebration'  
I was inspired from the dancing people from the sheet 'Charleston', they radiate so much joy and love of life, right?!
I thought on old film classics, on the 20s and created two tags in vintage style.  I prefer not so much colors, only brown,white and black because the motifs are very meaningful.

 some details

Firstly I used an embossing folder 'Music notes' and film stripe was made with a die cut,
at one point it was torn sideways to insert a text stripe.
Have you seen the lower margins on all the paper sheets, they are very suitable as addition. I used 'You're invited'. 

Two happy dancing people were cut out, some flowers, pearls and a black feather, not more and the funny little tag was ready.

and a second inspiration with 'You're invited bs' as background paper

and suitable to this tags a romantic card in vintage style

some details


Many thanks for your visit, I hope it was a little inspiration for you
 to try out and play with our newest collection papers
from Maja Design .

Happy crafting!

Snowdrops - Messengers of Spring

Hello friends!

Timidly the first spring messengers appear

Ich weiß nicht, wie es euch geht, aber ich habe dieses Winterwetter satt. Der Januar war bei uns viel zu warm, trüb und nass. Nun ist schon der Februar ins Land gezogen und in meinem Garten blühen die Schneeglöckchen und Winterlinge, sogar die ersten Schneekrokusse trauen sich schon hervor.

Das macht Hoffnung auf den Frühling :-)

Damit es noch etwas schneller  mit dem Frühling geht, habe ich ihn mir ins Haus geholt. Leider verblühen die Schneeglöckchen so schnell in der Vase und deshalb habe ich ein neues Bild gestaltet.


  Das Schneeglöckchenmotiv ist von einer Serviette und wurde mit Modelliermasse (äußere Blütenblätter) in 3D gestaltet. Basisfarbe ist die Chalky Finish Paint 'Vintage' von DecoArt.
Die Struktur auf den Blütenblättern entstand mit transparentem Deco Ice. Die etwas blassen Farben des Motivs wurden anschließend noch mit verschiedenen Acrylfarben aufgefrischt.


 Happy crafting!
