Hello Everyone! Laura here with you today, sharing a little February inspiration,
romance, and yes, a little love....with some Clear Scraps acrylic and wood words!
When this one was created, I was thinking, wall hanging, or even
scrapbook LO with a picture. But it looks great without a picture too, so
I decided to leave it that way. It's a nice option to have it as
a Valentine's, or really everyday, home decor piece
(you know how I love a good home decor piece!).
This project started with the Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheet.
These are so much fun to play with! If you haven't
tried one yet, don't be afraid to give one a try!
To give it a little interest, I brushed the edges with gray
acrylic paint as you can see here along the upper edge:
Super simple to do, just use a paint dauber, or if you want,
you can use a foam brush or foam dauber that you'd use with inks.
It gives the acrylic sheet a little interest and makes a nice frame
for the project. The little "peeling wallpaper" look at the top
left is easy to do, just make a little tear in the paper, ink the
edges and rough them up and roll slightly, then take a small
scrap of contrasting paper and glue it behind.
Clear Scraps makes these wonderful XL Script Wood Words.
To create the look on the bare wood, it's painted with
gray acrylic paint. Then after it's dry, it's stamped with
black archival ink (I used a sheet music stamp).
To finish it off, the edges of the word are brushed with
black distress ink using a foam applicator.
Then everything was glued down with Beacon Adhesive.
It works perfectly with the acrylic page and the wood word!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Make sure to stop back soon for more inspiration!
