WOW…

Jul 28, 2008

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.

    Just curious….how did you emboss all the dots and keep them looking evenly spaced? I had a problem with slipping.
