Hello! Happy Thursday to you! Hope your week is going well! Today on Clear Scraps, I have a layout and tutorial up on the blog! I used the new Chevron Border Mascil and the Banner Mixer for my page. I incorporated gold accents into my layout...let me show you how!
Securing the Border Mascil with washi tape, I lightly sprayed with Gold Color Shine from Heidi Swapp. I used a paper towel to dab my page before lifting the Mascil. I found this helps any errant drips from ruining my effect.
And here is how it turned out! I used two different patterned papers and adhered them to the side of my page allowing the gold to show.
I never seem to use up all of the rub ons in a collection. I had the idea of cutting the rub ons into smaller sections and placing over my Banner Mixer.
This is a great way to add accent to your acrylic! I found too that if the edges aren't quite perfect you can smooth with your finger or lightly sand with a sanding tool. :)
More photos of my page! I used Maggie Holmes' Styleboard: a collection I have been hoarding!
I layered pieces of the ephemera as well as added enamel dots from Crate Paper and Teresa Collins Designs.
If you are celebrating Mother's Day this weekend, I wish you a happy one! Whether or not you are a mom, I challenge you to take photos of yourself this week! I am guilty of being the photographer and not getting in front of the camera! As women, we are too self critical. Even as I look at this photo of myself from 6 years ago, I remember not liking the way I looked. At the time, my own mother was in the hospital fighting for her life against cancer. It made me realize that I needed to be photographed with my kids. I needed to cherish every day. Now with my mom gone, I absolutely TREASURE photos of us together. I regret not taking more. So, please document yourself!
Have a great day!
