Maya Journal Book

Hello Everyone,

Well I should be well and truly settled on my holiday in Florida with the family and having fun, fun, fun.  

To keep you all inspired I have my crafty project already for you.  This week the LLC girls are inspiring you with the new Maya Design Coffee in the Arbour papers.

I have used Delicious Moments as the paper backing this custom Journal that I will be posting when I'm in the US.  The dress has been made using the Raspberry Lemonade paper.

I have added a pocket on the inside using the Raspberry Lemonade paper and for the pocket I used a sheet out of the Maya Design Vintage Basics 6x6 paper pad and added some Reinette lace.  I cut all the paper inside this journal and punched all the holes.

Here's a close up of the dress.  The lace is my favourite, Princess Grace and I have added 3 poppies to the waist.  I also used two small pieces of the Princess Grace lace, rolled up to create the sleeves.  The neckline was accented using the 3mm string beads and then placed onto a MayaRoad hanger.

The new diamante scissors were just perfect, so very elegant and the gold colour matched perfectly with these brown/cream/taupe tones.

Of course a journal wouldn't be complete without a pen right, or to be precise a ranger pen nib or two added to the centres of the butterflies.  Speaking of which I didn't have the exact colour to match the poppies, so I used my copic airbrush and the BG11 to spray them.

I also added brown and cream frosted berries together, don't they look cool.

Lots of different laces and trims were added to the rings, all links can be seen below.

Hope you're enjoying your vacation! It's another book masterpiece; can't help but to love them all! I think the first one in green & pink will always be my favourite, closely followed by this one, as I've always loved brown. The dress with the lace is simply amazing on this one!
