Transparencies - I just love them. They're quite versatile and readily available. You can find them in all sizes and shapes - 12x12 pages, 4x6 frames, and accent embellishments. Or you can make your own - run it through your printer, paint on it, stamp on it, add rub-ons. Well, you get the idea. I like to layer them on my projects, especially in minibooks.
Your challenge is to use a transparency on your layout. It can be any size - full page, embellishment, etc. -- it's up to you. You can buy a premade one or make one yourself. Just post your creation by Sunday night, May 18th to be eligible for a RAK. And it's a fitting one -- a 6x6 acrylic album from Scrapworks, and a goodie bag of clear embellies - a little Maya Road sheers, a few Heidi Swapp and some My Mind's Eye.
For my layout, I added a piece of Hambly transparency overtop one of my background papers. And so my adhesive doesn't show, I adhered the transparency to the floral Basic Grey paper only where it's covered up by my picture and paper strips.
Alicia also used some Hambly transparencies. She cut shapes out of hers and layered them under her photos.
Jen started with three 4x6 transparencies by My Mind's Eye, arranging them on her cardstock. She added all her elements on top of the transparencies.
Becky cut hers into shapes to make flowers. A fast & easy embellishment.
