Hey all, today I would like to share with you an album I made using the Showy Mixables Album from Clear Scraps.
I want to share a few ways you can dress up those pages. I love working with clear acrylic and chipboard and this way I get the best of both worlds, so let's get started.
First off gather your supplies:
Stamp of your choice
Zip Dry Adhesive by Beacon
A Fall paper collection of your choice that has double sided paper. I used SEI's Yesteryear Collection.
First idea on dressing up one of your clear pages...borders. Whether you use a die cutting machine or punches...this looks great. Cut out your border for the first acrylic page and adhere using Zip Dry. Since you used double sided patterned paper, you can see a nice border pattern on each side.
Next, take your pearl strand and and using Zip Dry adhere the pearls to the outside edge of the acrylic page. I did this on both sides.
Trace your next page, the chipboard piece, onto a piece of patterned paper, cut and adhere. Do this for the other side too. I also inked the edged for a bit of an aged looked.
For the next acrylic page, ink your stamp using whatever color Stazon ink you would like and randomly stamp on the acrylic page. Don't t worry if it's not perfect. It just adds to the look of the album.
To add even more to this clear page, try using a paint pen on the edges. I used a gold color because it matched the papers I was using.
For your second chipboard page, do the same thing as the first.
For the last acrylic page idea, I cut a pattern out using my Silhouette and adhered it using more Zip Dry.
I also used some lace around the edges.
Fun ideas right? There are so many fun ways to dress up acrylic and make it your own. Now, for more fun...decorating the pages. Here are some pictures of what I did.
I absolutely love how this turned out. The Mixable Albums are so fun to play with. Head on over to the Clear Scraps Website to see all of their Mixable Albums. I hope this inspires you to give it a try. Thanks for stopping by.
