The Scrapbook Store - Maja Designs Enjoying Outdoors Layout

Hi Everyone,

Thought I would get a post in before all the Christmas and New Year festitives take over, so today I am sharing a layout I created for The Scrapbook Store with the beautiful Maja Designs "Enjoying Outdoor's" Collection.

This collection has a lovely Spring feel to it in mauve and green tones with pretty florals and a variety of patterns... so many beautiful designs to choose from and all double-sided!

Picture Perfect
I chose the pretty and delicate "Picking Flowers" paper for this layout and framed it with the purple side of the "Time for Reflection" paper.

How gorgeous is the 2Crafty Hibiscus Frame!!  I trimmed it down, cut off the trailing vine section from the bottom and coated with Faber-Castell gesso, then painted the flowers with Lindy's French Lilac Starburst Mist and highlighted the stamen tips with Tim Holtz shabby shutters distress glitter, to create a frame for my silhouetted photo.

The background was stenciled with the woodgrain section from the Kaisercraft Floral Quarters Template and Faber-Castell whipped spackle, using the chipboard frame as a guide for masking placement.  Once dry I misted with Lindy's Sea Mint Green Starburst Mist.

The frame was prettified with Kaisercraft and Green Tara flowers with fussy cut leaves stamped with Bo Bunny Falling Leaves stamp set in Watering Can Archival Ink and some pretty mauve berry picks.
To finish off I stamped around the flowers with the IndigoBlu Peony Posy stamp and Fern Green Archival Ink.
