Embellishing Acrylic Halloween Style

Happy Halloween everyone! Today is one of my favorite holidays and I am happy to share a Halloween layout I created!  Did you know you can make your own acrylic shapes?  The 12x12 Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheet is perfect to cut into any size to use in your die cut machines. 


For my layout, I first cut a 4x6 piece of acrylic to use with the Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Mini Bat and Skull die. 



After running the die and acrylic through my Vagabond, I now have two fun acrylic shapes to incorporate into my layout!

For the skull piece, I used Glossy Accents and Tim Holtz Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy Dry Glitter. I applied a light coat of Glossy Accents around the edges followed by sprinkling the dry glitter. 



FYI, the glitter goes everywhere so use it sparingly! :)

For my bat piece, I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Oil Slick.  


I applied a light coat and let it dry. It is helpful to stir the solution beforehand to ensure you get lots of glitter on your brush. Also you will need to let it dry for at least 30 min.  


Here are close ups of my finished acrylic skull and bat:
