Nathalie with you today! I hope you all are doing well, now that the kids are back in school, and hopefully you have more time to get crafty.
Today, I am bringing you a new layout created using a few Maya Road products and a bit of mixed media. This month's focus is Kraft products -there are so many beautiful kraft goodies to chose from at the store-, so I tried to incorporate a few small kraft details in my page.
I wanted to create a simple page to document a special moment between my youngest kids, so I set to play with a bit of distress oxide inks and gold modelling past to create a soft background for the page.
Once the page was all ready, a small kraft envelope was placed on the bottom right corner of the page. A few pieces of ephemera from Maggie Holmes' Carousel collection were then inserted in the envelope.
Using the Geometric Feather die, a few feathers were cut from one of the papers from the collection, and then inserted in the envelope. Next a small token from the Snapshot Wood Token set was added to the outside of the envelope, and the small banner sticker -that serves as the title- complete this cluster.
The picture was attached to the opposite side corner of the page. A small Kraft Post Tag was added behind the picture amongst the cluster of ephemera at the top corner of the picture. A small piece of Ken Oliver Vintage Trim Seam Binding was then colored with some gouache, tied in to a bow, and then attached to the kraft tag.
A small cluster was also created at the bottom corner of the picture using the Geometric Heart, and the With Love Nature Die bundle were used to die cut some pieces from some of the papers in the collection. A bit of foam adhesive secures the heart to the picture and the layout. Here is the final layout:
The end look of the page is so simple, colorful and full of textures. I love it! Sometimes it takes a few touches here and there to complete the page. All the MAYA ROAD products added to the page just add to the feeling and look of the page.
