Clear Scraps--Mini Shaker--Shine Bright LO

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today to share a great LO idea that could be used for Spring, Graduation, or just a bright, fun, everyday LO!

To start the base of this LO, I started with a bright yellow/orange paper and then grabbed the Clear Scraps 5x9 Leaves Mixer Stencil.  Truly a favorite, it's so versatile!

Here you can see how I staggered the stencil and applied ink in an ombre set of shades using a soft blending brush.  This gives a soft pretty background to layer the picture and embellishments onto.

I used cut out tag toppers at the top of each stenciled section.  A few sticker sayings and twine bows make a cute addition.


To create the title, I decided to use the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Smile.  After painting the top frame with aqua acrylic paint, I left that to dry while I traced and cut out patterned paper for the back piece.  After that was glued down, I layered on the other frame pieces, then added a few sequins, the acrylic layer, and then finally the painted top piece.

I added the finished Mini Shaker at the bottom of the pic, and scattered a few more stickers and ephemera flowers to complete the LO.  I love the look of the Mini Shakers on a LO!  There are other words, and a lot of fun shapes to choose from in the Clear Scrap store.  You can find one for just about any project--travel, baby, graduation, holidays too!  They are a fun addition that you can coordinate to the colors your LO--both the picture(s) and the papers you are using!  You can customize them using paint, as I did here, or use inks, sprays, stamps, whatever you'd like to do!  So fun to come up with new ideas!

Thanks for stopping by today!
