Hello and welcome . Tonight I am back to share my Maja Designs and Dusty Attic project for April. This project was inspired by the Maja Designs moodboard for this month. Gorgeous teals, blues and browns. I did think of course about doing something beachy but then I came across this very cute photo which changed my mind immediately.
The Maja Moodboard for April
And this is my interpretation of the moodboard for April……..“Sweet Memories”.
For this project I have used the Vintage Summer Collection of papers from Maja Designs combined with the Denim and Friends Shades of Denim Monochromes in the Dark Blue and Aquamarine. I used them by layering two Monochrome papers below a gutted piece of patterned paper. I have also done lots of distressing and some colouring using the Dusty Attic Oceania acrylic paint.
My assortment of Dusty Attic favourites started with the Window and Shutters. I chose to use only one shutter on this project. Along with the windows and shutter I used the Picket Fence and broke it into 3 pieces. I also used another big favourite, the Mini Chains and of course the Laurel Sprigs. There really is something about this piece that I absolutely adore. So I used the whole packet of sprigs for this.
All of these pieces were dressed in Distress Ink Walnut Stain very randomly to start off. I then added in some white gesso and then more ink. Once the ink and gesso were dried completely I add a little Oceania acrylic paint to give a patina look.
I used the pieces of picket fence to add layers amongst the distressed paper layers. I also did the same with the Laurel Sprigs.
I also added in some gorgeous 49andMarket Botanical Blend flowers in an assortment of colours and a little distressed muslin. I have also added in some random stamping on my background using a new 49andMarket.
The 49andMarket flowers used for this project are the Botanical Blends in Navy and the Vintage Shades Botanical Blends in Blue. I have also added in some older 49andMarket Mulberry Paper roses in teal.
