Nathalie with you today, bringing you my first project for 2017!
I had worked on a layout for this post, but upon consideration, I wanted to share with you one of the projects that made the trip to Arizona this year to be part of Creativation. This time the focus of the pallet was me, so i labelled the pallet "Keepin' It Real".
This was a fun project to work on. The 6x6 wood pallet was the starting point for this project. Since i wanted a blank canvas, i used some antique white acrylic paint to lightly color the entire pallet. While the base dried, i used Earl Grey Jute and Twine cording to wrap the inside part of an embroidery hoop.
Next I attached the wrapped hoop to the right side of the pallet. I placed the picture at the bottom right of the hoop, cut a chipboard sticker to form my title inside of the hoop. A small cluster of ephemera was placed at the bottom right of the hoop right below the picture. For this, simply used some white paint to color one of the Snapshot Wooden token, and a little gold marker to define the camera and sentiment in the token. To continue the white theme of the pallet, i placed a Vintage Crafting White Milk tassel, and a Vintage Crafting (gold cap) Milk White tassel below the token.
All the rolled flowers were glued to the left of the picture as a cascade from the top to bottom of the pallet. A white Vintage Butterfly transparency, one of the chipboard hearts in the Mini heart confetti set -painted gold-, and one of the 24/7 Journaling wood tokens painted in white were scattered along the flower cluster.
Finally, I used some multiple papers to and the Typewriter die to create the piece that serves as the anchor of the pallet. Adding a small sentiment sticker completed this pallet.
I love the final look of this pallet, and how the pieces worked together beautifully!
I hope this encourages you to take some time to use all the beautiful Maya Road products to create a project all about you!
