I want to feature the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection because it's Friday and we can all use a Fika break. So STOP what you are doing....I am calling an official FIKA time. Let's enjoy the gorgeous collection Maja Design has in honor of Fika.
Here's some translation for my non-Swedish friends:
fika - a break where one get something to drink (often coffee or tea) and/or eat (often some kind of bread)
Ska vi ta en fika? merans literally "Shall we take a fika?", which basically means "Do you want to have coffee with me?
If the ONLY Swedish I know involves coffee and food, then I am a happy scrapper.
On this page, I use Maja Design Ska vi ta enFika? Bjornbarskakor ( Background paper), Smulpaj m Applen ( leaves), Soders Hojder ( paper strips).
On this page, I used a mask and some moulding paste rather thickly. After the paste dried, I rubbed some inks over the top - making sure I only got the masked areas.
I also stamped here and there....One of the ink colors I used is called "Coffee" - how appropriate.
Here you can see some details on the side of my layout. Just some tiny little details that bring out the most gorgeous rich purples in this paper.
(especially paper collections).
