Hello everybody! You've got Laura here with you today sharing a LO
using one of the awesome new Clear Scraps XL Script Wood Quotes!
This one starts with a 12x12 acrylic sheet as the base of the LO.
I added a border strip and then a few journal cards around the outside
edges of the LO to make a fun border. Then matted my picture and
added that to the top. This made a great frame for the XL Wood Quote.
Our Happy Place fits so many great occasions! For me, it always means
our yearly North Carolina beach vacation, so it was the perfect fit!
I painted it with blue acrylic paint, and then sponged on some gray for a
little bit of a distressed look. Here is a close up pic of where I started to
sponge the gray onto the right side of the word quote:
It gives it a little bit of a beachy feel don't you think? It also
adds a little more texture to the word quote when you add
a second color to create a sort of highlight.
Same idea that I used for the Clear Scraps Helm and Anchor
It's painted with red acrylic paint, and then I brushed the edges
of it with black distress ink using a sponge tool, to really make
the embellishment stand out on the page. As always, Clear Scraps
gives you so many options when it comes to their embellishments!
You can find all the different chipboard choices HERE in the store,
and you can ink, spray, stamp, paint, and so on to your heart's content!
It looks picture perfect when all the embellishments come together,
with a few stickers, and the family picture at the beach!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Stop back soon for more inspiration using more of the amazing
goodies that Clear Scraps carries!
