Friday Challenge - Clearly Transparent!

Friday, March 28, 2014

Hi, everyone!  Brenda here, with the Friday challenge for Frosted Designs.  I hope you'll join in the fun!

The challenge is to use something sheer or clear on your project.  Think vellum, transparencies, clear photo overlays, acrylic embellishments/alphas, and any other clear or sheer items you can think of.

For my page, I used one of the Project Life photo overlays over the photo of my granddaughter.  I printed the photo at 4" x 4" because I wanted to place it and the overlay on top of the orange paper for a little contrast.  Adhering transparent/clear items can be a little tricky sometimes.  To adhere the photo overlay, I squeezed a little bit of Tombow Aqua liquid glue onto some scrap paper, dipped a toothpick into the glue and applied tiny bits to the underside of the overlay, along the lines of the white letters.  This keeps any adhesive from showing through on the right side. I wrapped bakers twine around the left edge of the overlay as a little accent.

Supplies used from the Frosted Designs store:
Lawn Fawn "Hello Sunshine" collection kit
Project Life Photo Overlays #3
Elle's Studio "Everyday Moments" stamp set

Those clear acrylic flowers that have been in my stash forever.  I punched some small circles from patterned paper and adhered those under the flowers, and then added some enamel dots on top of the flowers.  The papers and metal flair are from one of my favorite paper collections ever, "Hello Sunshine" from Lawn Fawn.
