The Scrapbook Store DT - Maja Design 'Summertime' and a Sad Farewell

Hi everyone,

I am so sad to say that this will be my last blog post for The Scrapbook Store.  I have had the most fabulous time being part of this amazing Design Team and would like to thank Suzanne McGregor and Marelize Frisby and all the girls for making my time on the DT such a wonderful experience.  Will miss you all xx

This month I have been creating with the gorgeous Maja Design 'Summertime' Collection, which has 2 colour themes - masculine beachy blue tones and pretty feminine red and pink tones and they intermix beautifully together too!!

Live Laugh Love
To create this feminine layout I layered three of the papers and distressed and tore the edges to create a shabby effect.  
The background was misted with Prima Sultry Shimmer Peony Color Bloom Spray, then stenciled with Kaisercraft diamonds template and Prima crackle medium.  I then randomly stamped the background with Kaisercraft Script stamp and Ranger Carnation Red archival ink, then flicked with Lindys Stamp Gang moss green mist.
I fussy cut the lovely flowers from the Smell the Roses pp to create flower clusters to add to my layering and finished off with a sweet Prima resin frame and a couple of Green Tara cherry blossoms which I altered with Prills in sage advice.

Summertime by the Sea
For my last layout, I created a mixed media beachy page with the blue pp's from this collection.
I have used similar techniques by layering and distressing 3 of the pp's, then stenciled my background with a Tim Holtz mini stencil and Faber Castell whipped spackle.  I then applied the Luminarte Silks which I mixed with water with a brush and spritzing with water to create a watercolour effect and finished off with flicking some of the watered down paint.
I cut down the Scrapmatts bubbles chipboard into 3 pieces and applied blue seed beads to add some texture, then finished off with layering some of the pp's under my photo.
