|Cruise Layout by Steph Ackerman|
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a scrapbook layout. Did you know that you can use Makin's Clay® to create embellishment to accent your layouts? Makin's Clay® makes perfect lightweight embellishments that truly enhance your layouts, and it is acid free when dry making it safe for your memory books.
I took a cruise recently and knew I wanted to document the trip so I created a 2 page layout. Rather than using actual sea shells, I decided to create some sea shell embellishments from clay.
Makin's Professional® Cutting Mat
Beacon Adhesives - 3-in-1 Adhesive
Use the Mixing Ruler to determine the amount of each color of clay to use. I wanted them a bit darker so I used more brown; however, you can change the color ratios as you desire. Then simply mix the colors together creating a uniform or mottled look.
Once you pop out the shells you can see all the amazing details. Makin's Clay® will hold their details and, once hardened, will retain their shape.
To create the layout, I selected spray inks in oranges and blues to add some random color on my pages. I then used several stencils to add dimension with molding paste.
Place mesh on the page and adhere a photo on top. Add a wood flag above the photo.
What will you create today?
