Paradise Layout for ***Maja Design*** and playing at ***Cuts2luv***!

Goodmorning lovelies,
For today I have another layout to share and this time it's a mixed media layout using a bunch of mixed media techniques. When I was ready with my layout a little disaster happened half a bottle of Lindy's Stamp Gang's blazing black spray's fell all over the lower left corner of my layout. Oeh la la that never happened to me before but "hey" that happens when you do not close the cap of the bottle after using it. Luckily I could fix it only not really like I intended to be....but I am very happy with the result.

I really love all the darker & white/grey papers Maja Design offers but I wish they had more because sometimes I really love to make something outside my comfort zone like this layout is. For this layout I used four collections Nyhavn, Crea Diem, Sommatider and Vintage Spring Basics. This time I choose two other colors to compliment my work teal and yellow. The butterflies are stamped on the white Sitting at the dock sheet from the Nyhavn collection. Then I painted them with "Azure Sea Asters" starburst spray's from Lindy's Stamp Gang en then I cut them out.

The flowers are by Prima Marketing and 49 and Market. For the first time in a long while I haven't used any chipboard on my work wow I just saw that now lol.....I also added two flairs from "Cuts2luv and a metal plate with the word paradise on it. I am a real sucker for the beach so as you can imagine this looks like paradise to me since I moved more then an hour from the nearest beach I sometimes dream I am there "My Paradise"!

On the background of my layout I used a different mixed media technique then I normally do. I took a piece of plastic packaging and sprayed on top of that plastic and then placed it on my paper sheet then you get kind of a messy watercoloring spots on your work. I did that with the teal color but also with a yellow/gold spray. Then I stamped on top of that with different stamp sets by 49 and Market. Then I matted my picture and cut out six different sizes of squares in three pairs of two of the same papers....Kann Dig Sjalv {Crea Diem}, 1st of March {Vintage Spring Basics} and Baslakan {Sommatider}!

Maja Design papers used: Sitting at the dock {Nyhavn}, Badlakan {Sommartider}, 1st of March {Vintage Spring Basics} and Kann Dig Sjalv {Crea Diem}

With this layout I will be enting in the June challenge at the "Cuts2luv" blog. This time they have a bright color mood board with blue, teal, yellow, grey and light orange. And also a wonderful sketch which I also followed. I only did not use the tittle that was asked but I used the rest is very clear right? This is going to be the third time entering because I just love their flairs so much on my layout I used two "Small Seeds of Happiness"on the right and on the left "Be True"! 
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I hope I have inspired you to play along in any challenge with your amazing works of art. Have a wonderful and sunny day and weekend.
