Baby Boy Album

Hello! Elena is here with you to share my Baby Boy album . To create it I used Boy Bib Overalls Chip Album.


  I decided to use untraditional colors for baby ,and used Mama-Razzi Collection by Bo Bunny.

For my cover I used a cut piece of Film Acrylic Border, colored with alcohol inks












  To color the Precious Expression I did the next steps:

 I colored the backside of the expression with 2 tones of Alcohol inks

 After that I stamped it with Twig Stamp

 as a final step I lined the expression with White Big Brush Artist Pen .



 I hope you have enjoyed my album and a tutorial


Father's Day Frames by KC

Father's Day is just around the corner, so I thought I would share a little project to celebrate the fact that my husband has two daughters that share some of his interests.  So how about a little camo for Father's Day?!

For this project I used three Clear Scraps Small Circle Deco Frames.  I began the camouflage by sponging small splotches of acrylic paint on the back of the frame, using the corner of a make-up sponge.  First in medium brown.

Then, once the brown was dry, I added random splotches of sage green, and then grey.

Once those had dried, I sponged a deeper brown over the entire back of the frame.  This fills in any blank spots and also gives the lighter colors more depth.
Once I had added the pictures and title, I attached the frames to a Medium Scalloped Circle frame with Beacon Zip-dry adhesive.  The Scalloped frame had been daubed with Silver Metallic Alcohol ink and had a sort of old tin look to it.  I added black "nail heads" as accents to the frames with Viva Decor Black Pearl Pen.
This camo effect would be great for any "manly" project and the acrylic paints work so well on Clear Scraps Acrylic!! 
Happy Crafting!!

Jazzed Up Acrylic Frame

We Love Him(resize)

Hello everyone! Today, I would like to share a layout where I've jazzed up an acrylic medium square fancy frame by Clear Scraps.

Here is a close-up on it.


I've first stamped on it with some flourishes stamps and black solvent ink such as Staz On on its front. Then, I colored  the flourishes with Copic markers on its back. When they are fully dry, I used sorbet and velvet from Art Anthology to paint over them from the back and on the edges in the front.


I also used a mascil by Clear Scraps to create part of the design on the background.

Next time when you think of using an acrylic frame or acrylic embellishment on your project, try to jazz it up with some stamping and painting! Happy creating!

Metallics and Clear Scraps!

Hey bloggers Rita Barakat here with some fun techniques to try with  Clear Scraps!
First grab your stencil, PITT Artist pens and some sponges and make your faux wood background.  I started with burlap looking paper (from DCWV) - the pattern added more "texture" to the piece.
Stick you Clear Scraps Expressions title and 
banners through your embossing folder- any will do.
Add gesso randomly and allow to dry completely.
Use Gelatos to scribble across the top of your title, rub it in with a sponge or your finger.
You get this cool metallic look...
Choose silver, grey and black to do the same for the banner pieces.
Get a pearl pen to add some shine on top ( I used my finger.)
Then added some on the sides of the title.
I really liked how it came out - looks even better in real life!
Metallic colors  are hot right now, so I hope you will give this a try!

Travel Photo Box

Happy June everybody!

When I saw this paper line from Carta Bella I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. We had just been to Manchester, NH for a show and stayed an extra day to visit the Boston area.

Sometimes I think it is nice to just look through a stack of photos, be able to pass them around without the restriction of an album. So I have always wanted to do a photo box with our Acrylic Travel brag bag. This kit was the perfect fit for this particular Boston project.

I took the handles of the album and used them as the frame for my box.

Then I took the actual pages and turned them into dividers.

I will probably make a few 4”x6” scrapbook pages with a few of my favorite photos of our trip to add
to this box. But for the most part I plan to just display my pictures loose, all in this box.

One of the divider pages, I made pockets so I could put some of our ticket stubs in it along
with some journal tags to account for our trip.

DSC01995_edited-1I hope you enjoy this project! I sure had fun putting it together.

Now I just need to get my photos back from the printers to add all my final touches to this fun box.

Tri Fold Photo Display....

Happy Monday everyone! Did you all have a good weekend, any scrapping project done? :) a weekend without tapping into something creative is not likely right?  no matter what you set your mind to do, from cooking, baking, gardening creativity is always a part of our everyday lives. And guess what, it's scrapbboking for me :) I created this  special project featuring my kids, the Clear Scraps Tri Fold Butterfly Frame and Acrylic Medium Oval Fancy Frame.  Great combination!! :)

I love this Tri fold frame, great for displaying photos with your added own  artistic style :) and theme you have in mind.  The part I love most about this project is the Clear Oval frame, cut into two parts, colored with alcohol ink and placed on each sides of the frame, I also cut the pink patterned paper and place inside the oval frame as shown. 


Here is a closer look! and I have to add this is great for gift giving :) as well. But I am keeping this one! 

 Thank you all so much for stopping by!!
