My Garden, altered wineholder and anniversary card-Maja Design Mood Board August

Follow on Bloglovin

This months Mood Board is absolutely stunning. Based on the Sofiero collection with it’s mild colours… and my garden photo! :)

I shot this photo with my Iphone, just to send it to a friend. But Marie liked it when she saw it and here it is… It’s on the Sofiero label as well. So here’s my take on this months Mood Board. Of course I had to use the original photo. 😉

I’ve had so much fun with this Mood Board, even though pink isn’t really my colour. I’ve gone berserk with paint, but I actually let the pink remain this time. No black spray paint what so ever. :)

I’ve added a lot of white paint to the roses I’ve used. They were a bit too much for me I think. I’ve had the huge Melissa Frances rose in a drawer for years. Now it came handy, just some white gesso on it.

The doily got stamped with one of my favourite Tim Holtz stamps from the papillon collection. I’ve used diffrerent colours of Distress Ink on it. I’ve used gesso and texture paste on the background, together with coloured acryllic paint of various kind. I’ve also added different Glimmer Glams, Distress Stickles and Glimmer Mists to make it shine a bit.

And here I’ve also used Distress Ink refillers on the background. Love the dimension that Tissue Tape adds. Note that you can see the stamped text through the Film Strip.

I will give you a supply list for all projects later on this posting…

My next two projects are an anniversary present. My sister Britt has been married for ten years to Kjell and I thought that could be worth celebrating. It took them about ten-fifteen years to get married (she eventually had to pop the question herself) so their anniversaries are kind of special to them. I altered a wineholder for them…

Here’s the backside of it. Got to say that this was one of the most funniest things I’ve altered in years. I’m no pinkie, but gosh I love this one. :)

My sister is really going to love this. She loves stuff with lacing, she’s got tons in her wardrobe.

From the other side…

And finally the lid. And here comes a card to go with it…

You may remember that I made a similar anniversary card last year. This time I’ve made the skirt stand out more like a crionline. You can do that with Maja papers since they are so sturdy… I’ve once again used Gabi’s template for the dress since I’m totally useless with drawing myself. Thanks hon, you really make my days easier on me. :)

So what are you waiting for… Hurry over to the Maja blog to see the full details of this challenge. You can win a collection of your own choice!
