Hey there bloggers Rita Barakat here! Today I am sharing a layout I made on a Clear Scraps 12×12 XL acrylic shape; I photographed it twice so you could see the details- once on cement (above) and the other with a piece of orange card stock behind it.
The title and large frame are also acrylic pieces.
Altered with gesso and Gelatos.
Color with Gelatos…
Blend with a sponge.
Add some glitter!
