Born to Ride ~ Maja Design

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well. Today I am going to share a grungy/mixed media layout that I have created using  the wonderful Nyhavn Collection. I used Dockside in Bloom as my background paper. I used Crushed Shells Glimmer mist to darken the centre of the paper, then splattered some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Blue Hawaiian Blue as well as Mister Hueys Opaque White and Inky Black mists randomly around the page. I also randomly stamped over this using some Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge stamps.

I die cut some cogs using chipboard and Spellbinders sprightly sprockets dies the used Distress Crackle Paint to alter them. I also used some left over papers and stamped some chevrons from Impression Obsession. I added a BoBunny brad to one cog to add some extra dimension.

I used a grunge front from Kaisercraft to stamp part of my title. I also stamped the edge of my base page in a grunge texture stamp also from Kaisercraft to add some texture to my page. I inked all of my papers with Black Soot distress ink to add definition.

Finally, when I added my photo, I used some twine. I wrapped it around a modelling paste container to get the rounded shape the carefully positioned some small glue dots to adhere it into place. I used a small peg to attach it to my photo.

Dockside In Bloom
