12 x 12 Acrylic Scalloped Scrapbook
The beauty of this book makes it so special. The 12 x 12 size gives you so much room to add larger pictures and journaling. The cover is all hand painted, using paint pens and acrylic paints. Every other scallop, up and down, is enhanced with the hand painting. The painting will show through to the other side. Stickles are dotted around the scallops for an eye catching effect.
Using the Storybook cartridge for my Cricut, the large oval frames were made to encase a sweet picture of a little girl. The next page, 4, has the same frame, just opposite colors as page 3. On page 5 and 6 a large cutout flower is placed to the side and a line of pink flowers is added.
The last two pages are interesting. The frame is from the cut out flowers on page 5 and 6. I simply added ribbon and the flower inside the frame looks like it is suspended.
Acrylic scrapbooking has to be my all time favorite items to make. The layering is so important and carefully following the lines of your papers and the size of the book help to dictate how you will do the layering. Please take your time to look at the photos and I will answer any questions you may have.
