Country Girl ***Maja Design****

Hello,I am here to share with you a LO I did using the beautiful, " Life in the Country" Collection.

Out of this Collection I used Strawberries with ice, Summer Kitchen, In the Hammock, Read a Book,Read a Book BS. The Scrap Fx Chipboard used on this LO is Wordlet ,Girl & Butterfly Flourish (2013022). Here are some close ups of details....

For my circle I cut out triangles,distressed the edges,then put a dab of glue in the center of the triangle & placed them into the circle. Once the glue dried I lifted the edges with my fingers so that you can see the layers, I then punched in eyelets,& weaved in white embroidery thread. My next step was to make my open circle,that I punched in eyelets,then weaved in cheesecloth & pearls. Once I completed that I glued the outside circle onto the main circle,then glued the circle onto a doily...........
I love to work with Maja papers,they distress & layer so nicely. I made my banner by starting with a piece of lace,attached cloths pins,then punched out tiny flowers with some of my scraps I was working with. The tiny white  roses are from I am Roses.....

I used white picket fence crackle on the stem part of the flourish & on the flowers I used Shimmerz paints Texturez ( tidy widy) then added some bling........
I made the flowers out of scraps that I was working with using MFT die cuts......
I first used red pepper ink on Girl,then I applied distress stickles fired brick stickles. Thank you so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle

  6. amazing style is right Rachelle, my nose was 2 inches away from the computer screen reading the deets on how to get the look. My eye caught the eyelet circle and i will have to give this a try, even though i need to re-read the steps, cuz that is a beautiful arrangement. Thanks for sharing the love of creation, truly appreciate....
