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”:
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:
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!
