Hello! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share a layout I created with some awesome Clear Scraps products! Summer is in full swing and I am loving the warm days and extra sunlight! Which of course means time outdoors and fun activities like hanging out at the pool! I documenting this adorable photo of my niece and nephew swimming and thought the Fin Mini Shaker Shape would be the perfect focal point!
I began by painting my top chipboard frame of the shaker using chalk paint in a patina color. Chalk paint isn't necessary but it does dry quickly. And I just happened to love this color for my page! I also painted the inside edges of the middle chipboard frames as well.
Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I adhered patterned paper to the base chipboard of my shaker. I cut away excess paper with scissors and an x-acto knife. I finished by sanding the edges to smooth any rough spots.
Again using my Beacon adhesive, I adhered my two middle frames to the base as shown. I then added a few different varieties of chunky glitter to the center of my shaker. For adhering the acrylic piece, it is best to add your adhesive onto the chipboard as apposed to the acrylic overlay. This will prevent smudging on the acrylic.
Here is the close up of the end result! I did again use my Beacon to adhere the Fin to my layout for a good seal.
For my background, I secured the 12 Inch Fish Scales Mascil to my 12x12 white cardstock with washi tape. I then blended four different Distress Oxide Inks as shown.
Here is a close up of the stencil + oxide ink! I love the bright colors and how it turned out!
Lastly, I added in different embellishments from the collection I used to accent my page!
