101 ways to use Acetate

This photo is of Georgia in her school nativity play. She was an angel. I lost all of my photos so had to order this one from the local newspaper!!
I wanted to make it on clear acetate but you can't buy it so I had to choose one with a title already printed on it.

I filled in the word LOVE with stickles and painted the dots with a Sakura Pen. To create a matching number 2 I used a stencil and a black marker pen to get the outline,then again stickles and white dots.

The flower is an idea taken from www.scrapperlicious.blogspot.com/ this womans work is mindblowing!!!!
I cut the petals and dotted around them, poked a hole through the end of each and a brad through the middle and voila!! Very easy and effective!

TIP OF THE MONTH!! When ruffling ribbon to put on a LO attach it to a piece of double sided tape stuck onto a strip of acetate, then you can move it around the LO to get it right and you can't make a mistake, once you have figured out where it looks best simply add another piece of double sided to the bottom of the acetate and peel both ends slightly, position on LO and pull the ends back!

Oh what a shame you lost your photos - you must have been so disappointed!

This is a lovely picture tho and that page is gorgeous - what a lot of work you've put into it and it shows.

Thanks for the 'how to'.

You can get any of the papers, cards or acetates cut to size at PDA cards and crafts, they are not overpriced.
