Maja Design – Creating With Vintage Winter

Here is an (8) panel canvas, mixed media piece, that I created with the gorgeous Maja Design papers, Vintage Winter.

I was very inspired by the gorgeous blues and reds in this collection.  And being that it is Valentine’s season, I wanted to create a Valentine themed project.  Each mini-canvas is 5 x 5 – here they are up-close:

Maja Design – Creating with Sommartider

February2

Today marks my 1st post showing all of the creations I have made using the gorgeous papers from Maja Design’s Sommartider collection.  As February’s Guest Designer, I will be posting my projects for Maja Design papers each Saturday – and don’t forget, after I have posted all of my projects I will be having a blog give-away for either a $50 gift certificate to Scrapbook.com or A Cherry on Top (the winner picks.)  To enter, all you have to do is tell me what your favorite project is that I have created with Maja Design’s beautiful papers this month! that’s it!

My first project is a 12 x 12 mixed media canvas piece:  “gray skies are gonna CLEAR up”:

If you would like to see a photo tutorial on the process of how I created this mixed media piece, please visit the Maja Design blog HERE.

My next project is another 12 x 12 canvas mixed media piece called “Seize the Moment”:

1 a 2 Seize the Moment (800x712)

again, I used the Sommartider paper collection from Maja Design for this piece…but I did use one beautiful piece of their Fika collection for my branches.

again if you would like to see detailed photos on how I created this piece, check out my post on the Maja Design blog HERE.

I also created a layout using this paper collection as well:

I just love this photo of my baby girl, not so much a baby anymore.

a photo tutorial on how I created this “quilted” flower can also be found on my post at Maja Design blog

I also tried out the amazing “Paper Ruffles” tutorial posted by the super talented, Gabrielle Pollacco, over at Maja Designs.

The final project I created with the Sommartider paper collection is my personal favorite:

1 7 (800x771)

I altered this paneled lamp shade.  I just LOVE the whimsical and girly feel to this! Every panel has a different piece of patterned paper from this collection.  And I framed each panel with some of the HUGE amount of ribbon I have been hoarding, oh, I mean collecting over the years!  I have also stepped this project out in photos on my Maja Design blog post if you would like a closer look.

Here are a few more photos of different angles of the shade:

Well, I hope that I have inspired you to create something today! and I sure appreciate you taking the time to stop by!!! TFL!
