After Pinky's album we have the ever so creative Jennifer!
And of course Jennifer's Project!
Hello! Jennifer here and I'm very excited to share my project using Clearsnap's fun Colorbox Surfacez inks! I had a blast playing with with the many colors and I can tell you Clearsnap inks are beautiful on acrylic!
For step by step instructions please visit my blog here.
Now onto Wendy's project!
Clear Scrap and Clearsnap are teaming up this week! I had a blast experimenting with the Clearsnap SurfaceZ inks and trying to find new ways to use them!
The SurfaceZ inks are a multi-surface ink and can be used on practically anything. One of my favorite ways to use them was to water them down with either water or alcohol and use them as paint. Be sure to work on a non stick craft mat because when they dry they are permanent.
I prepped my layout by spraying white primer spray paint on the left side of the Clear Scrap XL Deco Shape. This would give the SurfaceZ "wash" something to stick to and allow the colors to pop.
After painting on the "wash" I allowed it to sit for approximately 30 seconds and then wiped it off. Because it was diluted, it came off the untreated acrylic and left a beautiful blue hue on the spray painted area.
While I was playing with washes, I thought it would be fun to create some watercolor inspired background paper with the inks. When mixed with alcohol and dripped on the cardstock, the alcohol removed some of the previous wash and created a water drop effect.
When the cardstock was dry, I stamped on the cardstock with the ink.
Hello everyone and happy July. I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th. Are you enjoying this summer season yet? We are having an awesome weather here is Seattle, but I feel like I need a little bit of rain to cool off :) Anyhow, today I am sharing this layout I've created with the 12x12 acrylic sheet and 12" Polka Dots Mascils . I love using the 12" mascils for creating background on my layouts.
I thought the polka dot mask is a perfect match with my photo. The polka dots are sprayed on top of the acrylic page, then I used patterned paper and adhere onto the back side. The title is a rub-on letters rub-on directly onto the acrylic.
Here' s another closer look.
Thank you so much for stopping and checking us out, until next time.
Hello everyone! It's Irene here and this time, I'm going to share with you an acrylic word mini album. This is Belgium mini album which I've used Clear Scraps custom wordbooks. You have a choice of acrylic or chipboard wordbook but for my project above, I've chosen acrylic.
1. Tape the 12 x 12 Stripe Mascil to the XL Deco Shape and your craft mat. I like to make sure to tape it down on each of the stripes all along the acrylic piece to be sure the lines don't shift while applying the embossing paste.
2. Using the 7 inch paste spreader, apply Translucent Embossing paste to the acrylic. Be sure to leave the protective coating on the back of the acrylic piece until you are done. Once you've applied the paste, remove the tape and wash the Mascil off immediately. If desired, sprinkle a bit of crystal glitter over the wet paste. Allow to dry.
3. Stamp the Stampendous flag image in Versamark and emboss with white embossing powder. Trim paper to fit the bottom of XL Deco Shape and adhere with Zip Dry.
4. Heat May Arts ribbon with a heat gun to curl. Adhere to layout.
5. Adhere die cut stars, photos, and journaling tags to layout.
6. Stamp sentiment on acrylic Star Embellishment in StazOn. Sand the back of the acrylic and adhere to layout.
The first card is with Safari and Ponderosa / Surfacez ColorBox ink. The inking is done on white cardstock. Lay the Puzzle stencil down on the cardstock and apply the ink on random areas until the surface is covered.
The second card is with Ponderosa, Marine and Dolphin /Surfacez ColorBox ink. Apply all the colors randomly. The look will be different each time.
The last card is with Marine and Berry Surfacez ColorBox ink. Same technique that was used on the first two cards. The acrylic hearts are by Clear Scraps and have pattern paper adhered to the backs of the hearts. Zip Dry by Beacon was used for that. Added buttons and a sentiment and called them "cute".
Hi everyone! Nancy here today to share with you a fun little project I made using a Clear Craft Sheet. I love the look of acrylic and thought an acrylic rose would be perfect to decorate a simple cupcake for a friend's birthday.
Creating this 3-D rose was quite simple. I began by die cutting the acrylic sheet using a steel ruled die and my Sizzix machine.
Next, after removing the protective covering, I inked the rose with some Staz-On ink in Claret.
Finally, here is the tricky part, I simple heated the rose just enough to make the acrylic maleable. Be careful here, you don't want to shrink the acrylic, juste heat it so that you can begin the rolling process.
There was a little heating, a little bending, a little heating, a little bending. Go slowly and stop if it gets too warm.
Once the acrylic cools, it holds its shape fairly well, but you can use a little ZipDry if you want to hold it more securely.
I can't help but think I will be making more of these in the future...how cute would they be on a headband or an altered art project, or maybe just under glass like Beauty and the Beast..... hmmmmm
