Maya Christmas

...Aha, here I sit...chortling to myself again...Maya Christmas...well, Merry Christmas actually...but I am trying to be funny .. again LOL




When Wendy from The Stamp Attic sent me some Maya Road stash I had to do a little jig...I looooove Maya Road more than I love chocolate :O)) I decided to get a little festive and made a little teensy hanging ornament for the Christmas tree using one of the pages of the little book. I covered it with Distress Ink, used ... *stop yawning LOL* Wendy Vecchi's amazingly wonderful Studio 490 stamps and then jazzed it up with some Rock Candy Stickles.




Now, I was sent a Maya Road die sheet which means that it is an A4 piece of chip that you push out the pieces...and in this pack is a backing piece of cardstock to keep it sturdy I guess...and the card is grey...which matches the Maya Rd...which means I have an A4 sheet of really thick card to play with too...so I stamped the sentiment onto this and then used more Distress Inks to colour it. The little dangly bit is actually one piece from a Maya Rd acrylic keychain...alcohol inked and then a tree made with shrink plastic to finish. The ricracs are all Maya Rd too....hence....the title of this post...the keychain is sooooo sweet..and each little acrylic piece has a special protective coat which stops it from getting scratched before you use it....tis easy to peel off too...how clever!



Thanks for looking....Have a great day...apparently it is going to be dreadful weather with gale force winds and lots of rain...fab excuse for staying indoors and keeping warm :O)) and getting inky LOL

I must be getting sleepy too, because at first glance I thought you said "keeping warm and getting kinky"--oh well, inky is good, too!!! Love the hanging--every little bit of it is perfect!!!

Maya all your Christmas's be white (oh no maybe not, prefer your inky colourings). Its so pretty Hels and aren't those little acrylic keychains great for accents.......great work, thank you x

What a fabulous tag - and I adore the clever way you made the poinsettia - fantastic.

It was lovely to meet you yesterday, and thank you so much for allowing me to see all your awesome work. It looks great on your blog - but you can't seeing things in 'real life' can you.

To smell, touch, examine, and just see the textures, colours, layers, and all the work that goes into everything you make - was such a thrill - and inspired me to buy some different 'stash' in December - so that I can have a play! Not to copy you - which I would never do - but to just try out some of the things you use. It'll 'freshen up' my mojo!

My very best wishes

Lottie
