I have been such a bad blog­ger… I admit it. CHA kicked my booty while I was there and once I got home. But it was so fun get­ting to see old friends and make new ones dur­ing the make n takes in the Maya Road booth. Which if you weren’t there and don’t know… it was INSANE I tell ya. Fun but insane. Every­one loved using the new Maya Mists so much that we scrapped our day 3 make n take and did an improv Maya Mists make n take.

I must admit I am pret­ty stuck on the new Maya Mists as well. The cov­er­age of these mists is incred­i­ble and the fun part is they have 8 col­ors (black, brown, blue, green, red, orange, pink and pur­ple) that gives off a mat­te fin­ish and 3 metallics (gold, sil­ver and cop­per) that have the best shim­mer. So if you want to add some sparkle you can light­ly add the gold, sil­ver or cop­per on top of the mat­te col­ors or com­plete­ly cov­er the chip­board in a sol­id shim­mer you have either option. Super cool. I could talk and talk and talk about this new prod­uct.

Actu­al­ly I think I will talk some more about these… and tell you how we did our make n takes at CHA. We used the Maya Road Sheer Die Cut Sheets cut in 1/4’s and some Maya Road Chip­board Sets as masks. We used pages from sev­er­al of the many Maya Road Chip­board Coast­er Albums, placed one of the cut sheer sheet tem­plates on top of the chip­board page, sprayed the Maya Mist Orange on top (hold about 6″ from the page for best over­all cov­er­age),  removed the Sheer Die Cut Sheet and sprayed the Maya Mist Metal­lic Gold on top of the masked chip­board page. It is beau­ti­ful.

Maya Mists Make n Take
(this pho­to was tak­en before adding the black out­lines and white sharpie poster paint to the sheer blos­som. My fin­ished ver­sion image is lost in space.)

Then we added some embossed pol­ka dots using the snap set­ting on a crop a dile to some Sheer Blos­soms inked them using Ranger’s Alco­hol Inks, added a Maya Road But­ton and some Trin­kets Rib­bon for the hang­er and that was it… super easy and super fun. These would make real­ly fun make n takes in your store to demo the prod­ucts. Once the Maya Mists are com­pelet­ly dry you can then out­line the designs on the chip­board using  the Inkssen­tials White Opaque Pen by Ranger (my absolute most favorite white pen ever) and a black pen. To fill in your embossed pol­ka dots on your Sheer Blos­som you can use a White Sharpie Poster Paint Pen and then accent it using some Crys­tal or Dia­mond Stick­les.

In a few days I will post a make n take using a page from a Maya Road Chip­board Coast­er with some pieces from a Maya Road Chip­board Set as a mask. Then I plan on post­ing some about me posts. While at CHA I real­ized most don’t real­ly know the non-scrap­per me so I thought it would be fun to do a few posts about some of my oth­er hob­bies and such.

Wish­ing you all a great day.
