ScrapScene Scrapbook Contest:
Samples above show mica tile, microscope slide, Hambly pre-printed transparencies, packing tape transfers, and dollar store printed transparencies. (Click to enlarge)
The Challenge: Aspects of transparent artwork can often be seen in scrapbook layouts. Making a portion of your layout transparent can be done with pre-printed transparencies, stamped transparencies, mica tiles, microscope slides, packing tape transfers, acrylic frames, etc. If you can see through it, we will accept it as an entry. Be as creative as you would like – your entry can be a scrapbook layout, mini book, card, or altered item. It can be a brand new project or one that you have already made.
Inspiration: Need some inspiration? Take a look at some of these tutorials and artwork to give you some ideas.
