I've covered the acrylic "Love" expression with some pattern papers and later decorate it with tons of flowers. I've decided to make it into a hanging home decor. Therefore, I've punched a hole on its top and tie a trim to it.
Most of you have asked me on the type of adhesives that I used on my projects. As you can see from this project, I've attached the pattern papers from the back of the acrylic "love" expression to keep it's glossiness in the front. You will need a strong and dries clear glue for this. My "go to" adhesives for this will always be Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced Craft Glue or Beacon Zip Dry. Both adhesives works amazingly on all my projects.
Hello everyone and happy spring!!! Today I am sharing this very simple project I've created with thesmall acrylic mini clipboard. I really like how it turned out, it's fast and easy to make, besides you can never have enough of this mini projects. My favorite spot in the house for these is on my refrigerator door - just add a magnet in the back and you're done.
To add color, I used ink pads and embossing powder onto the acrylic. Apply heat to dry. Note- using heat gun tool will warp the shape of the acrylic but I like the end result. Then cut and trace the shape of the acrylic onto a patterned paper and adhere into the back. Add embellishments on top to complete.
Thank you all for stopping by and come back for more.......until next time!
Hey there again Clear Scraps friends, it's just me, Pinky today and I have an altered Clear Scraps Acrylic Clipboard to share that I turned into a wall hanging.
My son has been getting into photography like his momma and he has a knack for photographing pets so I took some snap shots he took with his phone and had them printed for an idea I had as a gift for a friend.
The Heart Arrow Mascil/ Stencil is so versatile, it really doesn't have to be an arrow if you place it on a small surface. I framed the photos using little insta-photo frames from Jillian Soup.
Of course I used my favorite Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive because it works every single time!
I just used the extra stickers and quotes from the patterned paper kit I had purchased and laid it out like a scrapbook page. I really wanted it to be clear so I didn't use any more mediums. I actually love how it turned out and my son is so proud I displayed his photographs!
What are YOU working on this week?
Until next time, have a beautifully crafty day friends.
Hello everyone, this is Adora and today I am sharing this mini album I've created using the new Mini Mixable Dainty 3.5x5 album. This album is so quick to make, love the instant gratification :). This album is ready for little photos to complete.
Paint is my favorite medium to use on my acrylics or any project that create. Paint is easy and love the vibrant colors. I use both paint and patterned paper to decorate the pages. I thought of spring for this project.
Thank you all for stopping by and don't forget to come back for more acrylic projects.
Hello! Jennifer here on the blog today to share what I did with some of the new Border Mascils! Bible Journaling has really taken off in the past year and Clear Scraps has five different designs to choose from! I have a few techniques that I used with each Mascil.
I used a combination of acrylic paints and my journaling pen with the stencil.
It's always a good idea to secure your Mascil with washi tape before using any type of paint or ink. Also, I use a protective sheet behind my pages as I am painting. The sun is perfect for a corner of your page...I used yellow acrylic paint and then outlined with my black journaling pen.
Today I am sharing a gorgeous Send it Clear Belgrave Card. My husband and I have our wedding anniversary coming up at the end of the month and I wanted to create a little something for the special occasion. We've been happily wedded for 14 years now.
I love how quickly these cards come together, they practically decorate themselves. I also love that he doesn't mind the flowers and fru-fru I like to add to my creations. :)
I've always wanted to see Paris with him - maybe after the kids graduate and leave the roost, which will be many more years to come. This is a little reminder that our romantic holiday is waiting on us.
Thanks for popping in and letting me share with you! Which Clear Scraps Send it Clear card design is your favorite?
Hi, Connie here with my Clear Scraps tag for March. I used 6" stencils, by Clear Scraps, to create a mixed media tag.
Instructions~ #1. Paint the tag with acrylic paint. Let dry. Create a background, for the tag, using 2 or 3 colors of acrylic paint. A Gel Printing Plate is fun to use. #2. After the tag background is dry, start adding stenciled images. Clear Scraps has awesome designs for this. Go crazy!! #3. When I was happy with the background, the ribbon was tied on and the Mirror Butterfly was painted with acrylic paint. #4. Stencil the Butterfly and attach to the tag. Add embellishments behind the Butterfly if you like.
A closer look at the Mirror Butterfly that is stenciled with white acrylic paint and the 6" Doily stencil by Clear Scraps.
Hello everyone this is Adora and today I am sharing this project I've created with the new,large acrylic expression - Summer. This is a fun product and one of my favorites, I think it's really cute :)
To create this project, I gather patterned paper in light summer colors. Trace and cut the letters onto the papers. Use Beacon all purpose glue to adhere on the back of the acrylic side. Then add embellishments to finish the project.
Thank you all for stopping by.........until next time!
Hey there friends, it's Pinky today with a project that really is for any DIYer or crafter who likes to make things as gifts or for themselves. I have seen these Cheese Grater Jewelry holders forever it seems and I really wanted t personalize one for myself. But I wanted it to POP!
So why not add some Clear Scraps goodness to make it an amazing gift.
Of course you can use any cheese grater, new or old, they are quite inexpensive in fact.
Really the 6" stencils fit perfectly on the grater itself making an easy decorating area.
Once you paint the entire grater, you set the 6" Groovy Hearts mascil on the grater, and use several paints to make it pop with graduated colors. It's easy to place and if you need it held down you can use a glue dot, but I did not need one to create mine. I wanted a pretty base color so I chose teal.
Because you will be using a metal friendly spray paint, I do suggest a sealer and 24 hours dry time before using or it can be slightly sticky. I believe it is because the paint is a bit thicker with a primer built into the paint before you use it. Also be sure to clean the grater with alcohol a well.
Hello Clear Scraps fans! It's Irene here and today, I would like to share my March tag with you all. This time, I've altered an acrylic tag by Clear Scraps using some water based spray paint, permanent markers and solvent based ink. I've also used some beautiful masks by Clear Scraps to alter this tag.
Peace be still? What does this look like to you? I had big plans of coloring this amazing masterpiece around Mark 4:39. I had this vision of a beautiful page colored and decorated just right. It would be absolutely amazing. The thing was, the more I tried to control the page and the coloring the more chaotic it became. Needless to say it was not turning out as I had planned. Boy is that true of the different seasons of life. Then I realized that once again I was trying to control what was happening instead of just enjoying the coloring. I don’t know about you but I know for us and our family there has been a lot of chaos in our lives lately. Trying to stay in that peaceful space just seems a bit far to reach sometimes. I started to dig into the word about finding peace and to be still. Jesus rebuked the winds to calm the sea in Mark 4:39. I have found that when my mind starts to head down that path of fear I have to rebuke that fear and re-focus on His words of faith. We cannot have a fear thought and a faith thought at the same time, it is one or the other. We must rebuke the fear and lean into the faith thoughts, even if we have to fake it until we believe it. In John 14:27 Jesus says ” Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you, not as the world gives to you. Let not your heart not be troubled nor be afraid.” Peace I leave with you? Not as the world gives to you? What??? When we lean into Jesus that’s where we find the peace. I don’t know what may be going on in your life but remember that the Creator does and He’s got this, even if your life’s coloring page does not look as beautiful as you think it should be.
So I share with you my bible journal page using the new Peace be still and the wave border Mascil. It’s funny because the more I have been looking at my mess of a page the more I really am enjoying it.
Have you tried Bible journaling yet? I would love to see your page and hear your story, please share with us on our Facebook page.
