A wonderful guest from Sweden!


 
Please welcome this week's talented guest!

I´m Maja Stokk Lindahl from Sweden. My nick on some forums is "eyovine". I´m a mother of 5 children, married, teacher, horsegirl and addicted to Scrapbooking. I live in a green house on the countryside and love to work in my garden. I love flowers both on my scrapbooking pages and in my garden. I don´t have any significant style but I use lots of flowers, paint, stamps and mists on my projects. I do all from C&S pages to lots of everything. My pages has a touch of shabby style and sometimes it´s a bit grunge. Lately I also started to use more mixed media on my pages. I do mostly layouts but also some cards, canvases and ART journals. 
When did you discover paper craft, and why do you still create within this craft?  
My first contact with scrapbooking was in 2008. I and my daughters were invited to our neighbor for a crafting evening. I was hooked at once and started to buy some things on the internet. But for a long time all my things were stored in a small box. I can say that it isn´t so anymore! I love scrapbooking because it gives me opportunity to be creative in so many ways.  It also gives me some "me time" to relax from a stressful life outside my studio.

Where do you find inspiration to your work?  
I find inspiration everywhere. Things I see around me, things my kids says, music, magazines and of course from all galleries and blogs. There are so much talent out there!   

Where, and when do you prefer to create, and how do you prefer to have it around you? I´ll guess I do my best work when I´m alone. But I love to sit with friends sometimes now and then.  I create all hours of the day.  I´ll take the moments I get.  I often listen to music and drink coffee while working on a project.

How does your scrap place usually look like? 
I have my own room for scrapbooking. I call it studio but it´s far to small to really be a studio. I prefer to have it organized. When I´m in my creative process it gets very messy around me.  I need to clean it up now and then. If my studio gets to messy my mojo won´t come to me. Something, that i guess it´s a bit odd is that I sit on the floor like a child when I work with paint and mists. So usually my scrap space is messy!  I like it better when it´s clean and organized. I just seem to have a hard time keeping it clean.

Do you have any favorite Prima – Ingvild Bolme line products?  
It´s hard for me to choose. I love all Ingvild Bolme - Prima lines.... but I´ll say Shabby Chic Resin Treasures birds ("Small Birds" and "Fly Away") and the "Small Typo Bulbs" from the Junkyard Findings collection.


Now let's have a look at Maja's amazing works;


Shabby Chic layout
Above: Maja made a wonderful and romantic shabby chic layout with a beautiful Prima flower cluster and many metal and resin embellishments from the Junkyard Findings and Shabby Chic Resin Treasures collections.

 
Above:  A close-up of some of the wonderful details on Maja's shabby chic layout. Here showing a resin banner from "Dell'Arte" and a "Jeans Buttons" from Tiny Junkyard Findings.


Above: On this close-up you can see one of the "Small Typo Bulbs" with the word "Love" on, that Maja mentioned as one of her favorite products, together with a little clock from "Clock Faces" and "Clock Hands".
Below: Some of the products used on this layout.

 

 





"Life is Measured in Moments" - layout
Above: Another romantic layout from Maja with a perfect set-up and design where a center of details and different embellishments are balanced with lots of airy spaces around. Maja here shows a great way for how to mix up lots of different types of products and colors without adding to much, as long as you leave enough airy spaces, it never get's too much.


Above: A close-up showing some of the great layers on Maja's layout, which includes Prima flowers, metal embellishments as "Clock Gears", leaves and papers.
 
Above: Maja added a "Typo Zipper" with the word "Inspire" on between edges of teared up paper - beautiful!



 


 




"Dare to Dream" - layout
Above: From soft and shabby chic, to a fresh and colorful layout which makes us happy to look at! Again Maja went for a detailed center design, but this time used bright color also on the airy spots, and with fun touches as the spilled paint! Wonderful and inspirational design.


Above: A close-up showing the "Rusty Typo Zipper" "tearing up" the pattern paper.
Below: The "Rusty Typo Zippers" used on the layout above.


 



Hope you all found lots of inspiration from Maja's wonderful creations. 
Please make sure to also drop by her blog here to get even more inspired and to learn to know a bit more about Maja and all her great designs!

Thank you so much everyone fro dropping by, and a special thanks to Maja for being my guest today and for sharing her talent with us all!

Have a wonderful weekend!

*hugs and smiles*
Ingvild
