Thursday's Acrylic, Transparency, and Vellum Projects

Erin used acrylic letters by Fancy Pants, and clear flourishes by Bo Bunny, using Staz On ink, and stamps to alter them. She sprayed Glimmer mist over the letters, to highlight the title. The butterflies were created using stamps and stickles on transparency sheets and cut out. The flower centers are Fragments by Tim Holtz, decorated with pearls.

Karen has used all 3 items in this layout! She printed the song title and lyrics on vellum and then used a transparency frame to frame the title and band name. She frequently uses vellum in this way - for journaling, etc. when she has a lot to say and does not want to take up a lot of room with her own handwriting or lose the beauty of the papers underneath. The U is a clear acrylic letter that she adhered to the same lined paper her song is layered over and then used an exacto knife to trim the paper from around it.

Pam went with a travel theme for this “Miss You” card. She first created a background designed to feel like an old handwritten letter. Next, she paired Tim Holtz’s French Market stamp with acrylic ticket stubs from Tattered Angels Glimmer Glass Tattered Travelers set. A few crystal swirls, a glitzy frame and a Prima flower complete the look.

Lisa H used a My Mind's Eye frame transparency to accent her journaling box on this layout.

Pia used a piece of transparency and embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder and painted some of the numbers with acrylic paint on the backside. Pia also used another piece and put it in a frame and used a rub-on from 7 gypsies (the bird) on the transparecy piece. Pia has handwritten the title and subtitle, translation: Punk - with soap in the eyes.


Tanya used multiple flowered transparency sheets to embellish her card. She used glue dots to mount them on top of her design paper, and even sewed on top of it. This darling stamp, called Baby Maisy, is from Michelle's Scrapbooking and More, one of Practical Scrappers sponsors.
