Romance ....& Maja May Mood Board

Happy Monday!!! I hope you had a great Mother's Day with your loved ones. Today I share with you my latest Maja Design work, this time I made a fantastic combination with Crochet + Mix Media + Crea Diem = a Romance...take a look..
This page is about my son Alexander and his girlfriend Monique and the story behind this photo...I tell you later...
I chose Crea Diem collection: the Sin lyckas smed paper as my base, then I added these two pieces of crochet that I bought at Michaels.  I used the 13Arts gel medium(transparent) like adhesive for the crochet and lace. Next, I painted with Shimmerz in different colors, glimmer mist and 13 arts inks. I was inspired in the OUAS May sketch for this page and in the 13 Art challenge-Vintage Memories. 

I painted a piece of lace with glimmer mist and put it between the two crochet pieces.

To create a variety of textures I added a metal key and hearts...

I cut out the big clock and used like mat for my photo also I added the jute with the pearls vine like a frame.

The journaling is on the backside..."Never forget that day we went to Jorgito's wedding, it was the time of some wedding traditions and the newly couple called all the singles for the tossing of the bridal bouquet and the garter. First Monique caught the bouquet and then Alexander caught the garter, lol..and everybody started joking about it, when the wedding was, that I had to do the wedding, etc... all night long. It was fun and unforgettable day" 

My tittle is a Scrapmatt chipboard and the stencil that I used in the background is from Heidi Swap. 

Supplies: Crea Diem collection: Sin lyckas smed, Skapa Dagen and Den Oersattliga Tiden papers, Shimmerz paints, Glimmer paint, 13Arts inks, 13Arts gel medium, Ranger Distress Inks, Heidi Swap-stencil, Scrapmatts- chipboard, Pink Paislee-butterflies
