Clear Scraps CHA Sneak Peek Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Clear Scraps Sneak Peek Blog Hop!
 If you've happened upon my blog today randomly.....Welcome!  
 You may want to go back to the Clear Scraps website 
and start at the beginning....there's a lot to see and the designers have been busy! 

If you've been following the list, you must have just come from Pinky's blog where I'm sure she inspired you today!  

Here's my project:



One of the most exciting new products from Clear Scraps is actually a brand new type of acrylic - cast acrylic albums and embellishments.  These are not going to replace the extruded acrylic....instead they are going to be dealing in both.  The 2 types of acrylic are quite different and useful for different purposes.  In a nutshell, the cast is harder and clearer (unable to die cut and punch, but also crystal clear and not easily scratched);  the extruded is much more flexible (die cut, punch, emboss, etc).
For this project I combined the 2.  My top frame is a Home Decor Item coming out from Clear Scraps made of the harder Cast Acrylic.  It's got holes pre-punched for ribbons or chains or whatever you want to put through them.  Hanging from that is a large word - FAMILY - which is made of the extruded acrylic and I was able to punch my own holes in this with my Crop-a-dile so I could hang it from the Cast piece.  
The rest of this wall hanging is done with Viva Decor glitter gels, KI Soup letters, some acrylic paint, flowers, ribbon, buttons and beads. 


Thanks for coming to check out my blog!  I'll have more sneak peeks coming up soon but for now, carry on with the blog hop!

Acrylic on top of acrylic - I never would have thought of using that technique, but now that we have a product that doesn't "scratch" as easily as the previous acrylic products, I am definitely going to take this new product for a creative test drive! What a lovely family album you've put together!
