Hi there, Tonya here to share with you today. My project is this adorable little bird wall hanging...
This was made using the chipboard XL Bird Shapes (yes, Clear Scraps isn't just acrylic. They make the best chipboard on the market if you ask me!).
At first I had planned to hang them in a vertical straight line. Then when I took a break while making them I had them stacked on my desk in almost this same arrangement. They made me think of a cute little family of birds all nestled up together. Obviously I decided to stick with this arrangement and I think it turned out really cute!
On the biggest bird I hadded a swirl of yellow pearls to give the idea of a wing.
Then on the "momma" bird's beak I hung a little 3 dimensional banner.
Then for the little birdie I cut out three vellum wings and layered them to give the effect of feathers.
All other products are from the Miss Caroline line by My Mind's Eye.
Have you tried to scrap a layout using this idea? I've started off this layout on a blank acrylic sheet by Clear Scraps. I like how I could create a scene layout with part of it being transparent and I could see the actual world through it. The areas in white on the layout are actually see through areas.
Here's another picture of it to explain it.
I really love the look of how everything seems to be floating.
Hope you all find this layout inspiring and start creating your own floating scene layout!
When I had the idea for this simple rainbow layout - with my kids at the bottom of the rainbow as my "treasure," I wanted to use paint to make a nice big top-to-bottom layout. The trouble that I saw coming was that I was very likely going to screw up on the simple painting job (because that's my style) and wreck the one piece of paper I'd found that made a great sky background.
If I didn't like the line I got with my paint, it washed right off while it was still wet! Then, when I had the rainbow that I wanted, I put the blue paper I'd wanted behind the acrylic sheet with the rainbow painted on it and stuck them together with glue dots (hidden) and some 7 Gypsies Gaffer tape as a border. One more tip: I painted the rainbow stripes non-consecutively...1st, 3rd, 5th, etc....and then when those stripes were dry, I was able to go back and paint the stripes in between without having the paint colours run together.
Good Monday morning everyone!! It's me Adora, hope you all had a great weekend, refresh and ready to tackle a brand new week! This week I definitely need want to scrap more :). For today I will share this layout I made of my daughter's family. For me scrapping a small picture is always a challenge, I am all for big photo and lots and lots of them, it seems easier to create/work on a layout with my photo as the focal point. So this layout is the opposite, I use the Clear Scraps Acrylic Large Experession - Family to be the focal point of my design and it worked. So with the right stuff there is a place for small single photo on 12 X 12 page lol!
Hi everyone! Today I would like to share with you all a mixed media layout which I've created using a Clear Scraps acrylic circle and fleu-d-lis. I've used 7 Dots Studio artsy paper line, Wonderland, to create this layout.
Here is a close-up on the acrylic pieces.
I've embossed and sanded the fleu-d-lis and stamped on the acrylic circle.
The use of acrylic in a mixed media project is perfect! It adds the missing element asides from the metal, paper, fabric and wood. Try adding them to your mixed media project!
Leah here with you on this fabulous day to show you this cute little Clear Scraps dog bone album I created.
I showcase my cute pug, Ooxie in this one. I chose papers from Bella Blvd called Tail Waggers & Cat Naps that you will see throughout the album.
I started out by dry embossing a circle texture from Sizzix on all the pages in the album. Then, I applied Stazon ink to the raised circles on the album.
You can click on any photo to make it larger to see closer details.
My Ooxie likes to sit in front of the window to sun, but in the process of sunning, she sits there and barks at anything that moves. It drives me a little crazy. lol
My daughter spoils or so much. :)
Notice how the vertical photos hang over the edges a bit? I love that messy look in an album, but not necessarily the stark white on the backside of the photo. So, before you place the photo in your album, adhere it to a piece of paper and trim around the edge, then when the photo hangs off the edge, you'll see a nice pattern creating an eye pleasing design element.
Yes, we dressed her up as a puggy-witch. She didn't like it one bit.. lol
I do the same trick with stickers too - stick it to some paper and trim. Voila, a nice overhang with prettiness. :)
I love these acrylic albums!
Ooxie, when she is desperate to be held (she's a real cuddle-bug) will jump up on my desk, in front of the computer, to get some cudde time in.
I probably have 100+ photos of Samantha and Ooxie just like this. I love having the cutest ones recorded in this sweet dog bone album.
Thanks for stopping in with me today, I hope you enjoyed seeing this fabulous Clear Scraps Dog Bone Album.
