You and Me *scallop acrylic album*
March 21, 2011
Today I want to share with you how I altered a scallop acrylic album which debuted at recent CHA.
First off, I want to say how clever Clear Scraps are to make these acrylic albums. They are top loading which is one of the easiest ways to slid your scrapbook pages in and out of the albums plus it gives you a great way to decorate the front and back of the actual album to match the pages inside. Seriously, how clever is that?!
So for this particular album, I added some stickles around the scallops on both the front and back side of the album cover. I love doing this little step because it adds some shine to the pieces as well as emphasize it's shape. After all, acrylics are clear and it needs that little boost of color and shape emphasis.
I then covered the front and back with pattern paper. I used papers from My Mind's Eye for this particular album and I loved how the shaped pattern paper that I used in the front had the scallop edge which went well together with the shape of the album.
For acrylic pieces, make sure you mirror your design, especially on the placement of your papers so that your adhesive wont' show.
So that's it. Make sure you check out these and other new stuff from Clear Scraps here.
Till next time,
This is just so cool - what a great idea.
