You make me smile...

Hello!!! Today I show you this page that I made with different Maja Design collections, the wonderful about MD papers is that you can mix and match their collection very well...  I worked this layout with lot of layers and textures. I took this photo to my DD and hubby with my cell phone the other day after school and work, they were relaxed but tired after a long day. I combined my DT work with the February challenge at Once Upon an Sketch and I was inspired by Nadia' sketch although at the end...I added a second photo.


I started to cut stripes with different Maja Design papers, distressed them and made layers weaving the stripes.

In my background I used a Prima stencil and homemade molding paste. Some washi tape, stamps, beats, pearls, buttons and paints.

Prima flowers and I used a Tim Holtz film die cut.

I made some fussy cutting with the Maja paper...  air hot balloon

The journaling this month at OUAS is..."totally addicted to..." and my journaling is in a tag behind the photo.  "Well after my move all are changing for me...,  now that I'm not working my life revolves around you two.   I'm completely addicted to you... Love You" February-2014
