{Challenge} Use Acrylic!

Hello! Shelly here with a Challenge for you: USE ACRYLIC on your next card, layout, or craft project.

I love all the possibilities acrylic offers to me when I am in a creative mood. If you can think it up you can probably do it to acrylic!! Do you know you can paint, ink, use Copic Markers and use alcohol inks on acrylic? Well, you can and it turns out beautiful.
I love Halloween, so when I got my hands on the newest Authentique Halloween line and mixed it with Fancy Pants Designs Clear Mix and Match transparent die cuts I knew I had a mini-album just waiting to emerge...
Use Staz On Ink to darken edges and give the project an eerie appeal & Halloween charm from jewelry to complete the worn look.
Alcohol inks in orange, green, and purple give the acrylic a modeled background appearance. Use alcohol inks on felt pad with blending solution and dab onto acrylic.
Run papers through the Xyron before adhering to the acrylic page to help hide the adhesive. Use double sided papers so you can take full advantage of the see-thru acylic.
Use left-overs like odd buttons and brads from previous years to embellish the corners of the page.
The Fancy Pants acrylic set includes arrows, hearts, tabs, and enough acrylic pages to complete to mini-albums.

The best news is the acrylic is on sale:
