Fall Layout...

Today I'm sharing a fall layout featuring Clear Scraps XL Deco Shapes and Stampendous Die Cut Sets! One of my favorite ways to embellish acrylic layouts is by filling the background with die cut pieces. 

  1. Die cut leafs from cardstock in a variety of fall colors. 
  2. Adhere cardstock leaves to the front of the XL Deco Shape with Zip Dry.
  3. Wrap XL Deco Shape with ribbon and tie a bow.
  4. Adhere photo to XL Deco Shape.
  5. Adhere alphabet stickers to leaves.

Supplies Used

Clear Scraps and Faber Castell...

Today I'm sharing a layout and tag I created using Clear Scrap and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft products! 

I love the beach colors when blending the Gelato out. To create the effect, I scribbled Gelato on card stock and then blended the colors with white acrylic paint. I used Faber Castell Texture Gems to create clear dots on the top of the layout. 

For my tag, I started by painting the tag with white acrylic paint. Next I scribbled a bit of Gelato on the tag and blended the color out. I embossed the sailboat stamp image with white embossing powder and colored the image with pencils. 

Supplies Used:
Basic Grey Paper and Stickers
Stampendous stamps and Embossing Powder
Tsukineko Ink/Versamark
Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive
