Hey there bloggers Rita Barakat here with a Clear Scraps Acrylic mini -
the Basket Brag Bag! Easter is right around the corner but it is cold!
I see no signs of spring brrr!
This lovely basket is about 9 inches high, if you include the handle and
easily fits 4x4 or smaller pictures. I made this one for Easter
so my acrylic album doesn't have any pictures yet!
I know most people scrap with the picture in mind but I find that times
when I take lots of picutres- like holidays and birthdays I don't get around to
scrapping them. This way the work is done ahead of time and I can slide those
pics right into place after the holiday.
Here is a close up of a flower I colored to match the pretty papers.
The edges are showing, edged with gesso -
which I seem to be putting on everything these days!
I used a distressing tool for the rough edges.
If you dont have one you can use a sharp scissors - but be careful!
I like that you can see thorugh the acrylic
where the paper has been torn back (on the top).
I love using foam squares to pop up some of the designs.
A close up of the last page.
Do you ever scrap without the pictures?
