Maya Road Sneak Peeks Day 1

Jan 20, 2012

Finally the day is here… Maya Road Sneak Peeks have begun. I tell ya I don’t think I could have waited another day. I’ve been so inspired with this winter release and want to share, share, share. I know I say this every time but I honestly do believe it… this is their BEST RELEASE ever! So many awesome new items. Okay, on to today’s project. One of my favorite new items are the Wood Vintage Birds. Each package contains 5 styles & 10 birds that are just waiting for you to alter. They range in measurements from 1.5″ to 3″ and are perfect to paint, ink, glitter etc. I had fun painting, inking, crackling and glittering the fat chubby bird. He looks like a winter bird sitting in the snow all fluffed up and is my favorite.

Notice that awesome looking stick pin. It is a new Maya Road Vintage Trinket Pin ~ Pearl Dark Brown. You get 30 pins to a package. I added the champagne colored bead and attached one of their new Vintage Kraft Flag Pins. These come in two different styles and are scored to fold over the metal pins which are included. You get 20 Flags and 20 Pins and the Flags measure .7″ wide. I stamped the Vintage Kraft Flag using the label portion from the Perfume bottle in the Antiquated Collection ~ Perfumery stamp set. I also stamped the muslin bow using an ad from the same stamp set. My favorite brown ink to stamp on muslin is Archival Ink ~ Coffee.

The Wood Vintage Bird is sitting on top of a new Vintage Sewing Spool that is wrapped with their new Linen Burlap Trim. YES you read that right… LINEN BURLAP TRIM. The Vintage Sewing Spools come 6 to a package and measure 1.5″ x 1.2″ in diameter. The Linen Burlap Trim is 1.7″ wide and is amazing.

The second piece to this winter white home decor piece includes the new Pearl Dark Brown Trinket Pin, a Vintage Sewing Spool, Linen Burlap Trim as well as their new Mini Gingham in Coffee Brown. I attached the bow using Fabri Tac adhesive to the stamped muslin that accents the Vintage Sewing Spool.

Here is the last of the pieces. Notice the Vintage Findings Raspberry Bead on top of the Vintage Sewing Spool… did you know you can take them apart? Look above and you will see one just a tad shorter. It is the other section to this one. Raspberry Beads can be colored with copic markers and alcohol inks as well as covered with Stickles. I love accenting them with Diamond and Icicles Stickles. They are gorgeous all sparkly.

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