From Maya Road Coasters to a Bird House

Hello...hello. Martha Richardson back with another project from the fabulous July Mixed Media Kit.  

For this project I used 6 of the 8 products offered...I love that these Frog Dog Studio kits work so well together!
The July Mixed Media Kit includes:
Maya Road 3" Vintage Memory Box with Coaster Album
 .5 oz Bottle of Crackle Accents

 Bottle of 'Peeled Paint' Distress Paint

Bottle of 'Antique Linen'  Distress Paint

4 oz Jar of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium
Roll of Prima Washi Tape (colors/design may vary)
Package Tim Holtz Hinges
'Pretty Bird Notes' Ephemera sheet from ARTChixStudio

For this mixed media project I used the coaster album that comes with the Maya Road Memory Box. When I create any project I literally lay out all the products I want to use and spend time, hours or days, walking by and looking at them while my idea comes clear in my mind's eye. I never have a plan until I can see it and how it will come together. Then I get to work...often my projects evolve through the process but they look pretty close to what I've intended them to be.

I love how I can match my metal hinges with my project using the DISTRESS Paint.

I'm thrilled with my Bird House...sometimes I need to encourage myself and this sits on my Art Journal desk as a reminder. I'll be back with a fun art journal page on Mon. 7/22...I hope you will check back to see what I've created. 


  1. Just adorable, Martha... as always! You know I can never resist a project with birds or nests! Thanks for sharing...

  2. Cute and creative use of the coaster album!!
