Old Fashioned Sampler

Jan 18, 2012

One item I always have to stop and admire when stumbled upon in antique stores and flea markets are vintage samplers. Each stitch is so lovingly placed and framed for all to see. I find them to be such an inspiring piece of art. These such items were the inspiration for the project I’m showing sneak peeks of today. Once the official Maya Road sneak peeks begin (I’ve heard Thursday is the day… fingers crossed) I’ll show the entire piece. Caroline is torturing us with this wait but it will be worth it… promise. The design team has created some amazing projects.

This Square Chipboard Foundations piece is covered with vintage ledger paper and stamped with the Antiquated Collection Perfumery stamps. I accented the square using Maya Road skinny spools and white pearl flower pins.

Here is a Square Chipboard Foundations piece covered with vintage ledger paper and stamped using the Antiquated Collection Dr. Warner’s Corset ATC stamp. I accented the square using a Maya Road “love” chipboard piece from their words mini chipboard set that was altered using their bright silver 1″ ink pad and silver glitter.

These Rectangle Foundation Chipboard pieces are covered with vintage ledger paper and sheet music and accented with an altered Maya Road vintage wood ruler, some alterable wooden buttons, mini metal bottle caps and brown and cream resin blossoms.

And the last of this samplers sneak peek shows a square and rectangle Foundations Chipboard piece covered with vintage ledger paper and sheet music. I stamped the rectangle using the Antiquated Collection Stylish and Fashionable lady stamp and accented the square with an altered Maya Road “wing” from the wings & hearts mini chipboard set using a bright sliver 1″ ink pad and silver glitter. I topped off the altered wing with a wooden alterable button.

That’s all I can show for today, I’m off to start packing projects to ship to CHA. I love the butterfly feeling of excitement I get  right about now… I love all the hustle and bustle of CHA. It’s loads of work but is so awesome to see friends from all over the world and demo super awesome make n takes. Caroline has put together some really fun ones for Maya Road. It’s going to be fun at the demo table for sure. See ya there.

And if anyone reading this blog post is from Somerset Studio, I really would like to start writing articles for your magazine.
