House Acrylic Album

Hello everyone! It's Jennifer and I'm back to share a mini album I created using the House Acrylic Album.  I absolutely love the different shapes and sizes of each page of this book!

I also am loving the different layers and how your pages "show through".  I used different patterns to cover the acrylic.  Another reason I love Clear Scrap albums is that you can color the pages with alcohol ink or paint or leave them "bare".

On this page, I used the 6 inch Chicken Wire Mascil and Distress Ink to create this fun effect at the top of my page.

If you haven't used the Mascils, you must try them!  They can be used with virtually any medium!  I love not only using them with Clear Scraps acrylic, but also with spray ink and paper!

Summer Layout- make it yours

Hey bloggers Rita Barakat here!
I love changing things up! I used the Forever and Always stack from DCWV to make this layout.
It is a black and white stack and I used Gelatos
to make the color pieces of this layout!
The center scallop frame circle is acrylic from Clear Scraps  that I colored with alcohol inks to match.
 Some close ups...
I added color to the letters with a PITT artist pen and the sand is Viva
Stone Art paste. The peak of the acrylic border Flur de Lis is also Clear Scraps.
 Dont be afraid to make your own colors to make a layout special!

Back to School- Travel Bag Dry Erase Board by Pinky

Good morning friends, 

It's just me Pinky again today with a fun project- 

I thought I would share this project I created for my friend's daughter to keep track of little notes for her locker. I wanted to make something delicate and small so the Clear Scraps acrylic Travel Brag Bag was perfect for this. 

Ribbons-Unlimited-Dry-Erase-Board-Pinky-Hobbs4

It was small and easy to hang on the door. 

I used some adorable My Little Shoebox papers and a tag with a white base to focus the writing area. 

Ribbons-Unlimited-Dry-Erase-Board-Pinky-Hobbs3

I simply used my Beacon Zip Dry on all 4 corners (just a dab) to attach the die cut tag to the back of the acrylic page. Then I did the same thing with the coordinating paper adhering it to the back of the Clear Scraps acrylic page. 

After that I added a ribbon and die cut strip to the front where I knew no writing would occur. 

Ribbons-Unlimited-Dry-Erase-Board-Pinky-Hobbs1

And attached the ribbon. 

The holes to hang it were already there- it was ready to go.

These would make great back to school gifts. I really think this could be custom made for any boy or girl- you could add a magnet to the back for any locker too!

I would love to see your ideas too!

Until then- Keep on creating.

Cousins Layout...

Good Monday morning everyone!!! Did you all have a good weekend?? Sure hope so!! Today I am sharing with you this layout I created with the 12 X 12 Acrylic Sheet and the chicken wire masking/stencil. I love how you can create your own background with these.

 

I also use acrylic shapes to embellish the page.

Other supplies used are: Ki Memories, Echo Park Tape, Adirondack alcohol ink, Anna Griffin Ribbon and 7Gypsies and Coredinations cardstock.

 

 

 How to create the backgrounnd: Start by masking using spray paint as shown.

The black cardstock and butterfly lace paper goes under the acrylic sheet, then place the photo and all other embellishments on top.

 Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you're having a great summer!

Until next time...

Adora


Precious Baby....

Good morning Clear Scraps friends,

Well it's Friday and officially we have jumped into August.

Today I have a Clear Scraps acrylic Precious Baby Banner to share today, must be in the air because Elena shared one last week as well!

I created this using October Afternoon papers, I actually took the hearts and cut out a circle to insert a heart shaped crystal (Connie Crystal).

I used a PINK Pearl Pen to add the perfect touch to the rattle shapes.

And trimmed out a heart into the paper on the bear.

I think it will be the perfect room accent and is an adorable gift,

I used ribbon from Hydrangea Hippo on to hold it together and add accent touches. It was a fun piece to make. 

I hope you enjoyed the post today! Be sure to check out the Creating Made Easy August Kit and our Facebook page!

In Blooms Layout

Elena is here with you today a Layout featuring some acrylic beauties.

Test

  I used acrylic XL DECO as a base for my Layout. What I like about it  - its shaped form and that it is quite sturdy for your mixed media techniques.

  I applied modeling paste on it, misted it and added some paint with my fingers, The texture is great there.

Texture

  I added Birds acrylic border. Half of the birds I covered with Maja Design Patterned Papers, the others were colored with alcohol inks.

BirdsBorderClearCenter

And I outlined some of the parts with Faber-Castell White  Pen

  The same techniques were used on Expression Small Create

  Hope you like my Layout and you've got some inspiration for coloring your acrylic pieces too.
