Scrapbook Layout created for Maya Road  - GRATEFUL -

Hi there, Roadies!!

Nathalie with you today to bring you a bit of inspiration using the beautiful Maya Road products.   It has been a rather cold and snowy winter here in Toronto (Canada), so I have been thinking of better days ahead, and decided to create a cheery layout.

Lately, I have been feeling uninspired, so to kick back my mojo, I pulled some watercolor and a few of the Maya Road dies.

For the background, i used a combination of two of my Prima watercolor palettes and some watercolor paper to try and recreate the background of the picture.

While the background was drying, I used the Geometric Feather Steel dieBe Brave Die Set, and the Geometric Heart Steel Die  to cut a few images from papers from the Quartz Rose collection from Prima Marketing.

Once the watercolor background had dried,  and the picture had been put in place.   A few images from the  Rose Garden Sentiment stamp set  were added (with grey Archival Ink) around the background to mark the places were the clusters of die cuts will be placed.

To create the clusters on the page,   few fussy cut flowers and die cuts were used.  In addition, a Feather clip was added to the top corner's cluster, and different sentiments from the Golden Moments Kit stamp set were added around the clusters.

To create the title of this page, a banner was cut, from one of the collection's papers, using the With Love Nature Die bundle;  and the  word "GRATEFUL" was stamped on it using the Just My Type Stamp Sheet.    After that a few lines of journal, and a few drops of rose gold ink complete the page.

This page came together in less than an hour ( it took that long to have the watercolor background dried completely), and it was the perfect cure for the case of the Blahs.   I hope this inspires you to visit the Maya Road Store   to check for some of the materials used here.

Remember, I am just a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.
