Hi Everyone! Wendy here to share up a Simply Creative post for you today using Simple Stories 4x6 transparencies! I remember when the first Simple Stories kit (Life Documented) was released, my fav part of the kit was the transparencies because I love transparencies in any size...mini, photo size, 12x12...and these are just a great addition to the kits to add a bit of flair to your scrapbook pages AND altered projects!!
With Simple Stories, we encourage you to think "outside-the-box" when incorporating Simple Stories pre-designed signature elements in your layouts and projects. We want to show that the elements can be used as stand-alone elements. This can be done by using elements even in altered projects. Just be creative!!
I have one more project to share with you from my CHA Summer projects and this one is an altered project, titled "Slice of Summer".
In this project I used the 4x6 transprancies from the 100 Days of Summer Collection to create "windows" on this wood case wall hanging. I picked up this unfinished wood case on my trip in Italy back in May with intentions to alter it.
Well, after a bit of thought...voila! The windows in the wood case were just the perfect size for the 4x6 transparencies.
Here is my project share using the 100 Days of Summer Collection...
I painted the unfinished wood case with white acrylic paint. Further, I distressed it a bit using a sanding tool and brown ink pad + sponge.
Here are a few close up pics...
I used banner stickers from the 12x12 Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers #1402 and attached to the 4x6 Transparency Photo Overlay with mini staples. I attached the transparency to the wood case using Glossy Accents.
I used my typewriter for a bit of journaling on the cloud diecut. Further, I used Stamps - Unity Stamps Co-Brand Simple Stories (sun, cloud) for the background on the background. The bottles were filled with sand from the local beach.
