Acrylic 12x12 LO-Splash of Paradise

Hi everyone!  Laura here to share with you today!

I've got a fun mixed media type LO created on

one of the Clear Scraps 12x12 Acrylic Sheets!

I've got to ask, have you tried an Acrylic Sheet LO yet?

They add a fun element to any LO, and are so

easy to create with!  With the ability to paint,

or stamp, or even just use paper, it can only

be limited by your own creativity!

To create this background, I started with one of the

Clear Scraps stencils, the 6" Circles background stencil.

I used alcohol inks in 2 shades of blue, and dabbed them

on the acrylic sheet thru the stencil using a sponge.

To give it a little more interest, I added a third color,

the yellow, which I just dripped on here and there.

The rule of threes is always a good idea when

you are applying colors like this.

The circles stencil reminded me of bubbles, so

it seemed like the perfect choice for this LO!

To create the cluster of "ocean finds" along the edge

of the LO, I used several of the awesome

chipboard pieces available from Clear Scraps.

The Sanddollar chipboard set was perfect, and I

just painted the pieces with acrylic paint, and then

brushed a little brown ink around the edges and

added a touch of sparkle with some glitter glue.

I tucked in a few embellishment pieces into some

netting to create the border, and stapled on

a piece of nautical looking rope.

The word splash is another great goodie from

Clear Scraps.  One of their Expression

Clear Word Titles.  I used the same

alcohol inks to add a little pop of color

and then glued to the project to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

and I hope you're inspired to give the

Clear Scraps Acrylic Sheets a try!
