~October at the Farm~ Maya Road's new Apple coaster Album
This sure was a fun little album to make. I had these farm pictures from when we lived on Whidbey Island...that were perfect for it. As soon as we get around Julian and get some "local" pictures then I'll do another one of these as a Julian album. For those of you that are "not from around" these parts...Julian is our local mountains, it's where my husband grew up. They are famous for their apple pies. My in-laws still live there and we go up there all the time but we stay away from town. We just hole up with the family and breathe in the mountain air and stay as far away from people as possible....but for the apple album I need some "julian" pics...the mine, the candy shop, town, the pie places etc....
Anyway, enough rambling.......here is the rest. I think my favorite part of this was making the little trees.....I painted them green, sanded the edges, used Glossy Accents and flock to make the little apples. Then I inked the trunk brown and used a brown pen to make the trunk texture. I then used Glossy Accents over the whole thing to make it shiny! They were so fun!
Here are links to a few products that I used...Maya Road doesn't have the brand new product on their site yet so I can't link to that yet. I'll edit my post when I can link. I used the Calendar Sheer Set, Metric Ruler Stamp (I love using scallop scissor with this stamp to make little borders), Red Trinket Buttons(love that you can sand the edges of these to make them white and distressed), Oval Calendar Stamp, Scallop Chipboard Frames, Red Scallop Ric Rac (This stuff makes me weak in the knees)and here is Ranger Glossy Accents (a favorite product among the Maya Road DT members)...as soon as the new MR products are up, I'll update these links. Hope you enjoyed my little apple album as much as I enjoyed making it!! ~Katie
ETA- The red gingham paper is made by Daisy D's, which sadly is gone....loved that company!
