Part Two of My January DT Reveal for
Maja Designs

 Hi there paper friends. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Today I have another layout I have created as part of my January DT work for  Maja Designs.
 I have used both their "Vintage Spring & Summer Basics" paper collections & I have to say
 I am really enjoying working with the Maja Design paper collections because they
 all mix & match so brilliantly together. Makes our job as scrapbookers so easy !!!

I have cut this word "Memories" from the Vintage Summer Basics "Memories" paper to
 use as my title. This particular paper has all sorts of great tags, words, postcards & 
all manner of ephemera that are perfect for cutting out to use as embellishments etc.

 I have also included some lovely metal embellishments too.
I looove those scissors.

I have also cut some tags & labels out of that same "Memories" paper & I have used them
 to create some great layers both at the top & sides of my photo. In the above photo you can
 also see the gorgeous "1926" paper as well as the reverse side of "Memories" papers, 
both from the Vintage Summer Basics collections.

 For my background I have used the "1st of April" paper which is from the 
Vintage Spring Basics collection. I just love that little bird in the top right corner too.
 All of the chipboard I have used, including this gorgeous Ornate Screen are from

Here you can see a close up of the detail I have added in the corner of my layout.
 On the background, if you look closely, you will see I have added some gauze which I 
adhered with a gel medium before stencilling over the top of it to create some wonderful
 texture. I have also added some Olive Vine Glimmermist for added colour as well as
 a little background stamping.

Back soon with another project. Until then.
