Hi Roadies! Do you ever find yourself drawn to the same colors? I love to use corals, pinks, and yellows in my projects. Today I made a layout of my daughter and tried to stick to a peach/coral/pale pink color scheme. Fortunately, Maya Road has many embellishments in the same colors, which makes it easy to coordinate colors.
I don't make layouts often enough, but I typically make 6x8 layouts like this one. I did some simple watercoloring with Maya Mists in the background and layered papers and the photos on top. For the embellishments, I looked at my Maya Road supplies and picked out embellishments in a monochromatic scheme. If you don't have enough in one color, you can alter most of the embellishments (like I did for the wooden heart).
I layered the Coral Resin Nesting Bird over a scrap of doily, and added the Alterable Wood Heart and Wise Owl Resin. For the heart, I painted it with a thin coat of gesso, and once that dried, I sprayed it with Pink Grapefruit Maya Mist. Above the heart, I added the adorable Resin Bunny.
The embellishments were placed to create an implied circle, so I die-cut the Geometric Leaf out of patterned paper and pointed it up to fill-in the visual circle. For the top corner, I stamped the sentiment and added the Vintage Tassel, Pretty Resin Bow, and a couple of sequins.
Thanks for stopping by! All of the Maya Road supplies are linked below.
