Be Cool...Creative Scrappers #245

Hello!!! I'm still super busy with the dresses for next week's wedding but I made a stop to show you my page for the Creative Scrappers's new sketch reveal designed by Nicole Niwosad.  My daughter Paola is always making peace and cool signs so I decided to make a page about this so in the future she can remember how she acted when she was a teenager.
I worked with the Frosted Life Collection by 13 ARTS.

Here's the sketch....

 And this is my inspiration.....

I love 13 ARTS papers have beautiful design to play with it!!

I used Gesso, stamps and Rub-ons...

I hung the title of the twine with the clothespins and I love the result...

Fairy Princess- Maja Design

Hello!!  I've been working a lot during the last weeks so not much time for blog land these days.  Usually January is a slow month at work but this new year I started with a full schedule, making formal dresses for weddings that's what I love to do and in the rush I have not taken any photos of the dresses..not good!!  And in the nights although I'm tired I try to sit a little to liberate the stress with....scrapbooking my perfect therapy!!!

I will show you today this page that I made with the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? Collection by Maja Design. It's a Beautiful collection that took me a little time to decide which papers I wanted to work with and I chose En Koop Te, Cheesecake and Chaite papers because I love these colors and designs.  I took this photo of my niece Sabrina and I've been waiting for the perfect papers for this photo and finally I found them.

I love to use the papers to it's fullest and here I made some flowers by hand with the Chaite paper and some pennants with the Cheesecake paper.

For my tittle I used a rub-ons and I incorporated fabric and lace to give a feminine look to my work.

Love Yourself...Wholeheartedly

Hello!!  I'm so happy and excited because today was my first post at Maja Design blog as Design Team member and I will share you this page that I made with the gorgeous "Crea Diem Collection".  My idea was a soft color vintage page with lots of textures and for that reason I selected these pink, gray and white colors and this was my inspiration...
With these same beautiful papers I created all the textures, I made the flower by hand and cut all the pennants and I love the final result.  These papers have beautiful design in both sides that I used to create all these shades of colors.
Here you can see all the layering and textures...

I added stitching, silver swirls, pearls, lace and butterflies. I also used gesso and acrylic paint.
