Scrapbooking on acrylic ~ Clear Scraps!

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using a  XL Deco acrylic shape by Clear Scraps.  These shapes are fun to make a scrapbook page from, just treat them like you would paper.

I have a tutorial on how this scrapbook page was created, using an acrylic shape.

  • Remove plastic film from the acrylic shape.  With a sanding block rub up and down, on the surface, of the acrylic front.  By doing this you are taking the shine off the acrylic.  You should have a nice mat finish.

  • Wipe the surface with a damp towel and dry.

  • Stencil a pattern on the front of the acrylic shape, using the 6" Brick Wall stencil by Clear Scraps.  For best results use StazOn black ink.

  • Layer pattern paper to create a photo mat for the photograph.  Glue the photo mat to the acrylic front using Beacon 3-IN-1.

    I really love the frosty look, of the acrylic, by sanding it lightly.   After the layering of paper, to create a photo mat, speckle the front with  irRESISTible Texture Spray.  It works great with acrylic.

    Let dry. Add a 5" X 7" photo in the space that was created from layering the papers.
