Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be sharing with you all my first layout using the NEW Limited Edition 'Nyhavn' collection by Maja Design! I really love the sunny, pretty colors in this collection, and when I saw the nautical elements in the papers, I knew that I had found the perfect papers to scrap a photo I took of my niece and her hubby.
My niece's reception was at a yacht club, and she chose nautical elements for her decor. Add to that, her wedding colors where orange and blue, two colors that are prevalent in this lovely collection. So this collection was just the ticket to get this photo scrapped!
I used 'The Sunny Side' paper as my base and dabbed a little Ingvild Bolme chalk inks (Rusty Keys, Vintage Pink) around my photo area and the small cluster in the top right side of the page. I then added a bit of texture with some home-made texture paste and a few Crafters Workshop Stencils (North Star, Art Is, Time Travel).
I mounted this paper on the 'Sitting at the Dock' paper, I also used this paper as the matting behind my photo. I cropped it to look like uneven pieces of weathered board. All the chipboard I used on this page is from Dusty Attic (Elegant Swirl #3, Elegant Swirl 13, Word Pack #4, Skeleton Clock Frames). I kept the chipboard bare with just touches of grey and white to stay with the weather wood look of the papers. I also did a little bit of stamping with a Graphic45 'By The Sea' stamp set.
The lovely pearl/lace strip running down the left side of the page is from Tresors de Luxe,...if you are a person that likes to add fabric elements to your projects, Lucy's etsy shop is a must see! Her vintage lace, fabric blooms and trinkets are pure elegance! The blooms I used on this page where one of my favorite finds (from a couple years ago) at Michaels, I got a 6 pack of these blossoms for $1.50!! Sadly most of them were sold out by the time I got to them, but I was happy to get my hands of the few that were there!
I hope you all enjoyed today's project, if you are looking to get yourself some Dusty Attic chipboard, you can either order direct from Dusty Attic (they are having a 20% off sale right now through to the end of the month), or you can find Dusty Attic in the USA at Moments of Tranquility and The Scrapbook Diaries (both online stores also carry Maja Design papers), in Canada at The Scrapping Bug.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, your sweet comments and feedback always make my day! xo
