#happydays ~Maja Design~

Hello everyone!Today I have a layout that I have created using papers from a few collections, Vintage Summer and Life by The Sea. I also used the butterflies from Vintage Spring Basics as embellishments. I used the colours from my photo to determine my papers and went from there.

I used a 2 Crafty chipboard frame and altered it using walnut stain and faded jeans distress inks. The flowers are a combination of Green Tara, Petaloo and Prima flowers which all vary in shades of blue. The background (right) I used antique linen distress ink and The Crafters Workshop Mini Chickenwire reversed stencil to add some texture.

I recently bought a Memory Box banner die called Banner Parade. I die cut some papers from Life By the Sea and alternated them to create this fun banner. I applied some foam tape to each to add dimension.

Hashtags are everywhere these days and I used a chipboard saying from Dusty Attic and played around with it using Walnut Stain and Distress Stain and also Faded Jeans Distress ink to create an ombre effect. 

This pennant was a last minute addition to my layout. It was a blank area that just needed something and banners are a great way to fill up a space. I added some hearts which were some left overs .....nothing goes to waste!
