Laughter ~ Maja Design

Hello everyone! I hope that you are all well. Today I would like to share a layout that I have completed using the latest collection from Maja Design...Enjoying Outdoors. I took this opportunity to create another page for my brother's album that I have been working on. This photo is of my siblings many years ago with one of the dogs we had growing up.

The photo dictated my title. I used a Blue Fern title and applied two coats of gesso. Then I used some Gelatos and rubbed it in with my fingers to create the ombre effect. It was so easy to achieve!

Every part of the papers has potential. The title strips formed my journalling. I also used some left overs to create some banners as shown. The butterfly was stamped using a script stamp from Bobunny to give it a vintage look.

The collection has so many beautiful greens and purples. I selected approx three papers and inked the edges using walnut stain distress ink. I selected a dark, a medium and a light in terms of pattern so that they wouldn't compete too much with each other. As it is the outdoor, I used peeled paint distress ink as part of my background and the applied TCW chicken wire reversed stencil on top. I also did some stamping and added some random pieces of printed tape in places.

I can never get enough of flowers! I have used some Green Tara flowers here. These are called azaleas and I love that they are not too bulky but have enough dimension and also compliment the papers perfectly!
