Only one sheet of acrylic ~ Clear Scraps!

Hi guys!
I did these projects for Clear Scraps.  I wanted to show how easy it is to use one
 sheet of 12 X 12 acrylic, instead of glass, to frame a photo or altered project.
  First up~

I clipped a sheet of acrylic, over the scrapbook page ( to protect it from "little hands" ).  Very cute wall art decor and so affordable:)

Next up~
A photo frame/display piece (Prima) ~ I wanted this to be more of a shadow box type frame so I added the acrylic to enclose the frame.

I added "memorabilia" to the frame also.
40 years of marriage :)
I made a pencil shading of the opening and that is how I measured as to what 
size and shape the acrylic needed to be.  Using my scissors, I cut the shape out of a 12 X 12 acrylic sheet by Clear Scraps.  The back of this frame comes off and that
 made it easy to fit the acrylic front in place.
I secured the picture on the back plate, filled my bits and pieces in  and then closed it up.
The embellishments around the frame are made using stamps by Darkroom Door.
Also used are Jenni Bowlin Studio (paper), Tim Holtz and Ranger (ink).
I great keepsake celebrating 40 years together!!
