Morning! For today's blog post, I would like to share with you all another acrylic layout featuring Clear Scraps. I've used some pattern papers to layer on the acrylic layout. Below are some close ups on it.
I've used some stamp to add details on the layout. I've stamped some images on the acrylic surfaces using solvent ink and colored it using Copic markers.
For more dimensions, I've stamped some images on pattern papers and cut it out. I've used foam adhesives to attach to the layout.
I've inked some chipboard flourishes and distress it using water. To detail it, I've used liquid pearls. I've also used the pattern papers to create some dimensional roses.
I hope you all like today's post and start playing with some acrylic. Have a great weekend ahead!

Morning! Today, I would like to share an altered home decor with you all. I've used Clear Scraps acrylic "Fall" expression to create this home decor. I've covered this expression with pattern papers by BoBunny.
Here are some close-ups.
I've used some paint mist to add colors to the burlap flowers to match the pattern papers.
Love the texture of these burlap blossoms and leaves. They are perfect for any "Fall" project.

Are you all up for another mixed media fun? For today's post, I would like to share another super fun project with you all. It is an altered mail art with tons of mixed media techniques. The products used on this mail art is by BoBunny and Pentart.
Below are more close-ups on this mail art.
To create the crackled background, I've used some crackle paste and some patina effects mediums. This will create the crackled metallic look on it. I also use some glimmer spray to add some depth in the colors.
I've used several sizes of 3D balls by Pentart to create more interesting dimensions and textures on this mail. Everything is covered in Patina effect products for the metallic look.
Hope you all like this mail art. If you all have any questions on this, feel free to leave a comment below. See you all again soon!

Hello friends! Today, I would like to share another simple project with tutorial. It is a fun mixed media ATC. I've used an acrylic ATC as the base for this project. So now, let's have fun!
Simply follow the steps below.
First, randomly drip some alcohol inks on the acrylic ATC. Use some alcohol blending solution if needed. Try dripping a mixture of alcohol ink colors to create a more interesting effect.
I used an alcohol ink fillable pen and fill it up with some alcohol ink blending solution and use it to doodle on the dried alcohol ink. I've drawn some flowers on it. If needed, clean the pen tip in between your doodling to create more clean strokes.
Then, I use a pearl pen to add some details to the flowers. This adds more colors and dimensions to the ATC.
When everything dries, turn the ATC over and paint some white acrylic paint to the back of the ATC. Let it dry completely. To detail it further, I've also used some glitter paste to decorate the flowers, rub-ons for the
Hope you all have fun with this simple tutorial. You can use these techniques on any of your acrylic embellishments or even art pieces. See you all soon!
