Hello everyone! Laura here today to share a summer mini album!
The Clear Scraps Acrylic Tag Album is a fun way to play with acrylic
and not feel overwhelmed by the large 12x12 surface of the acrylic
sheets. If you haven't tried it, this is a great way to get started!
On this first page, the rays were stenciled with blue acrylic paint,
and the Clear Scraps 6" Spiral stencil.
So simple, but it gives a great impact and texture! Next,
I brushed the edges of the next 2 pages with more acrylic paint.
It's nice way to frame each page instead of just leaving it clear,
tho you can do that too.....nice to mix it up!
Love how the back of the stenciled cover shows through to
the second page of the mini album.
The best part of using acrylic.....it's a two for one impact!
You can see how the brushed on red paint frames this page:
And it shows through to frame the next one too. It's also
fun to add some cute little tags in between the pages, they
can be used as a title, or you could use it to mark the year
or use it as a journal box too.
Some people are afraid to work with a acrylic because of the
fact it shows through, but it's actually a fun element to use
to embrace your creativity! And you can keep it simple.
This is just the mat from the other page becoming the mat for the
next page. Just keep your adhesive where it won't be seen.
The border strip was used as a mat for a thinner border on the
other page. Just take a look as you are putting the album together.
It's so fun to get creative with the different acrylic pieces, and once
you've tried it, you'll be hooked!
Thanks for stopping by today! Stop back soon for more inspiration!
