Confessions of a CHA Confession-er (Part 4 - Clear Scraps)

...our second class for Education day at CHA was the acrylic albums class hosted by Clear Scraps.

They had so many goodies and giveaways - everyone got one of the new mini acrylic albums that they are releasing and I won another set of the scalloped acrylic albums to take home with me, too!

The class was a little bit jumbled and confusing, but working with clear acrylic is awesome and a tiny bit scary - well get over it and just jump right in! In the world of creativity and ideas, you can just NEVER go wrong! Here we go:




So that's what I ended up with at the end of the class. I had fun polka-dotting with the paint pen I forgot to finish the project!

Alright, I'm going to have to cut this one short for now - I'll come back and add more about the class and Clear Scraps later, but for right now...I've got a CUPCAKE reception to go to!

Those little pages look neat. I'd love to learn more about this, is that scalloped kind of outline behind it the acrylic?? I Guess I'm a little confused, this is something you should definately blog about later because I am intrigued.

I am with Mary Jean, I have an album that I purchased and haven't started yet. I am afraid to do it. I am afraid of messing it up. Your's looks great. I am going to just have to do it. I cannot wait to read more.
