Vintage Soul

Hello today it is my turn to host a blogpost at the Maja design Blog, and I made this  vintage looking Layout.
I love  old vintage things, the papers of Maja design are just perfect for vintage and shabby chic crafting.

For this layout I used Vintage summer basics 1921 as the background and some leftovers from other papers for the matting of the picture.
I used the patina effect pastes art extravagance from prima marketing to distress the chippies from Dusty attic.
Some old lace and colored cheesecloth to tuck between the layers.  As a finishing touch some flowers from 49 and Market
 Thank you for visiting , I hope you like my layout.

Wish you all a very nice day enjoy the weather it will be cold and wet sooner than you think and than you wil be longing  for summer again.

Today it was my turn to host a blogpost at the Maja Design blog and I made  this Layout with lots of hydrangea. 

I really love hydrangea, I have a big pink one in my backyard and planted a white one as well, hope it will grow very big too.
In my frontyard I have a white one with big balls of tiny white flowers.
I own a lot of hydrangea flowers from prima marketing and wanted to really start using them so I decided to make this lay out filled with hydrangea.
I also wanted to use some real nature thing in it so I went out to my garden and gathered some old little branches and plants that I had put aside for the birds to use building their nests, sorry birdies but I will refill soon. It’s fun to use natural things  like this on your layout so I might go use it more often.
I made some tears on the edges of the top layer, distressed them so you can see the paper underneath and made stitches by hand on each side of it.

I also tucked some pink dried baby’s breath between the flowers, I love this delicate little flower,
  and always keep and dry them when I get those in a bouquet
For this layout I used the  vintage summer basics collection.

With this Lay out I also join the More than words challenge of this month.  The theme is Discover and use some old stash. My old stash are the flowers and the old nature stuff I used . I was inspired by the word discover. I went on a discovery trip thru my old stash and discovered the tin  containing the hydrangea. discovered I still love them and found it a little hard to use them . But I think that's what this challenge is all about, to finally use some of your old stash.


Thank you for visiting my blog , I hope I gave you some inspiration with this layout.
If you leave a comment I will come over  to your blog too, to take a look at your projects.
