Hi all! It's Laura here with you today! I hope you've been enjoying all of the
amazing inspiration here on the blog! Clear Scraps has so many unique products
that you can have a lot of fun playing with. One of my faves is their 12x12 Acrylic
Sheets. I've got a scrapbook page for you today created on one of these!
What makes these acrylic sheets one of my favorite ways to scrap? You can use a
lot of fun mediums on them. Sure you can use them on paper too, but sometimes
when you do mixed media products on regular cardstock, you can get warping
and wrinkling. That NEVER happens on an acrylic sheet! It's a perfect canvas
for texture paste, alcohol inks, paints, you can even stamp on them with a
StazOn ink! In this LO, I used texture paste and the 4x6 Brick Wall background
stencil that's available from Clear Scraps.
I just randomly laid the stencil on the page and spread the paste through
the stencil with a pallet knife. I left it dry really well over night just to be
sure. If you use other mediums (like inks) drying is pretty quick, but
these are fun if you want to try something new. Just a little patience
required! So the next day, I went over the stencils "bricks" with some
distress inks to add depth and interest. Soft blue and gray are the
colors I used to mimic the water background. You could easily do
any color, like a red and brown to match an old building, or anything
that would match a picture you have. The bricks reminded me of the
old lighthouses we have seen at the beach, so I also added the Clear Scraps
It's just painted with gray, white and black acrylic paint, then
brushed with a little ink around the edges, then glued to the LO.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you will give the
12x12 Acrylic Sheets and some of the fun Clear Scraps stencils a try!
