Scrapbook Layout created for Maya Road - DREAM-
Happy Spring to you all!
Nathalie here with you today sharing a new scrapbook layout using one of my favorite Maya Road products: dies.
Maya Road offers a large selection of dies that are just so beautiful, and can be used for all kinds of crafts. This time, I wanted to share the last project created for Creativation 2017 using the Geometric Stars Die set.
This project started with a bit of mixed media on the background. By simply using some watercolor, and the packaging technique, the background was set to look like a blue sky. While it dried, A large moon was cut on the Silhouette Cameo. I wanted to keep the layout monochromatic, but brought just small color pops by backing the cut file with papers from Maggie Holmes' Gather collection.
A little bit of hand stitching does not only secure the cut files together, but adds texture to the project. Before gluing the crescent moon to the background, a hole was poked at the top corner of the moon. Here I used some crochet thread to attach two Star Bright Charms, and a Ken Oliver Vintage Heart and Key Charms, so that they hung on top of the picture i was about to add.
The picture of my little sleeping on my brother in law's arms was perfect for this layout. I simply layered some gold vellum behind the picture, and a piece of Ken Oliver's Vintage Trim- Rick Rack edge -. A small cluster was created at the opposite side of the picture using a Journaling Wood Token, some Vintage Crafting Tassels (Milk white), and a small Chipboard heart (colored with gold paint)
To add to the dreamy feeling of the project, the Geometric Stars die was used to cut smooth white card stock. A small piece of gold marbled vellum was then sandwiched between two of the die cuts, so that there white edge of the star will show on both sides. These stars were then attached to create clusters around the big crescent moon.
To finish the project, a large cork sticker was added to create the title for this piece, and some small embellishments just add little pops of color around the page. Here is the final layout:
I hope this serves as inspiration to stop by the Maya Road on-line store, and check all the beautiful projects being used in this project, as well as the large selection available. Remember to use the code DIESOFMARCH to receive 25%off all your die purchases until March 31st.
As always, I am a comment away if you have any questions on how this project came together.
