On the edge

Hi guys, its me Grace.

Today I want to talk about easy things to add emphasis on your Clear Scraps acrylic pieces without taking too much away from the transparent piece.

In this layout I used a star and a circle acrylic piece to house my title and journaling.

to bring the clear star piece out of it's obscurity, I punched holes through the edges and threaded a velvet trim around the acrylic piece. This let the viewer see the shape right away but left room for the transparency to show.

I just love how easy it was to punched the holes through these acrylic pieces.

then for the round acrylic piece, I added some Viva decor's pearl pen around the piece. I love that this pen adds texture and the color are so shimmery.

as you can see, giving your acrylic pieces the "edge" is so easy and the ways/possibilities are endless.

That's all for me right now and have a great weekend.
