My Maja Design May DT Reveal
"Sweet Girl"

Hello there paper friends  & welcome to the blog.
Today I am up on the Maja Design blog with this layout I did
 featuring my little grandaughter Mia & I have done it a little different
 to how I normally scrap!!! I have actually fussy cut the photo out and made it
 a little 3D against the background. I have used some papers from the
 Maja Design "Vintage Summer Basics" collection.

I must say I do love this photo, just look at that animated look on her face!!!!

Naturally I have gone with lots of beautiful flowers & I have painted all the 
2Crafty chipboard in black to create a good contrast to this fabulous paper.
I have also done some mixed media around the photo cluster & added lots of 
stamping, micro beads & added a little watercolour as well.

Here is a close up of the photo fussy cut out. It is a great idea if there are things you don't 
want to see in the background of the photo, although not all photos are suitable for 
doing this & I would never cut up an original

For my background I have used the "1891" paper & I have torn a strip to place along 
both the top & bottom edges using the "1905" paper. Both these papers are from the
 "Vintage Summer Basics" collection.

Well thats all for today.

 See you back here soon.
Until then.
