The Winter 'Blues'

Hello, dear friends! How are you doing? I hope the New Year is treating you well. I'm thrilled to present a new project on the Maja Design Blog this lovely Friday. I don't actually have the winter blues-lol. I am, however, totally and completely obsessed with the color blue. Sometimes I'll go a couple of weeks favoring a certain color, and this week it is blue. Does that ever happen to you?  

This is no problem when you have Maja Design papers. They have a fabulous assortment of blues to choose from. Today I'm using Vintage Autumn Basics to bring to life this sequestered garden. 

The base papers are distressed, layered, and stitched. A script stamp adds interest to the upper corner of the card. Two ovals layered on foam adhesive provide a backdrop for the bench. The blue paper roses and leaves are handmade using the paper collection.  
You'll find some cheesecloth and a twine bow for a feminine touch.  

Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope you have plenty of time to get cozy in your crafting space this weekend. There are so many lovely Maja Design Papers are waiting for you to create your own treasures!


Maja Design Papers Used:  

Additional Supplies Used: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Spellbinders Ovals Dies, Prima Shabby Chic Treasures, Cheesecloth, Twine, Sewing Machine, Thread, Foam adhesive.
