Hello once again fellow acrylic lovers & happy belated 2013! Kay here presenting a layout made with a couple of new releases by Clear Scraps. For this page I've used items from both new releases by Clear Scraps; Acrylic Borders & Clearly Framed.
This would be my newborn son when he was about 2 days old. The theme of my page is 'My Promise' to him as his mom. My journaling consists of several items that I pledge to provide as his mom throughout his long journey in life & as one of the most influential persons in his life.
For the Square Acrylic Border, I've added texture by first highlighting the edges for a couple of the squares with a black Sharpie. I then colored the border with orange & yellow alcohol inks. I then dressed the corners of the squares by applying a dot of Bisque Liquid Pearls. Finally a couple of square mosaic pieces were adhered to a couple of the square boxes.
You simply can't go wrong with alcohol inks when it comes to acrylic! The best part is that if you make a mistake or don't like how it's coming out--just add a few drops of the Blending Solution, wipe it clean & you can start all over again.
For the Small Rectangle Frame--I've covered it with patterned paper, inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink & dressed up the corners with a couple of Black Diamond Stickles dots.
You can find more details & close ups for this page on my blog. Make sure to keep coming back to the Clear Scraps blog for more inspiration by the talented DT on how to utlize acrylic elements for your crafty projects! Enjoy the rest of the week...
