April brings sunshine and showers, warm weather and flowers. It also brings a new guest design to the Maya Road DT Blog. We are so excited to bring you our guest designer of the month....Gena Glover!
Each month we feature a new friend of Maya Road and their beautiful, unique & creative style! This month we are thrilled to introduce you to Gena and her fabulous creations. We adore her beautiful attention to detail. While Gena may be new the Maya Road blog, her work is no stranger to the Maya Road booth at tradeshows and other events.
My name is Gena Glover and I live in Red Oak, Texas. I have been married to my best friend, Kris, for 20 years! We have 4 children, the youngest about to complete her first year of college. I have been scrapbooing for 19 years and I have loved seeing the evolution of our hobby. I began with Creative Memories and now not only love layouts, but chipboard books and mixed media projects. I teach and design for The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Texas. I love sharing my art with others. You can follow my projects and classes on Facebook
Thanks so much Gena for joining us today! Take it away...
Campfire Mini Album by Gena Glover
I love the Maya Road chipboard albums and create many of my classes using them. I found the new Photoplay Campfire paper and knew I would be perfect for this project. The Maya Road pieces accent it beautifully!
I began by painting the edges of the Landscape Album with brown paint and covering each of the pages with different patterned pages from the collection. For the cover, I added foam tape to the back of my Natural Burlap Blossom so that it would be a little easier to tuck some of the pieces behind it and give it even more dimension. Once the burlap flower was set I tucked a Mega Wood Etched button underneath and layered a cut paper circle and a token from the Wood Wild Token set. I added Wood Slices and two pieces from Pearl Mum Trim. To bring it all together I added a strip of the Pearl Mum Trim along the bottom.Here is a close up of the layering…
Thanks so much Gena! With summer on the horizon, this mini album is a wonderful place to store all those camping memories!
Check back in Friday for another gorgeous project from Gena!
