Scor-Pal and Clearsanp with Abby Henderson

 This week the DT's from Scor-Pal and Clearsnap have joined forces to bring you some amazing projects.  Be sure to check the Scor-Pal Blog and the Clearsnap Blog everyday for inspiration, and also to enter to win a Scor-pal!  Just leave comments this week on any of our Scor-pal posts, and we will choose a winner next week.

Hi Friends! Abby here with ScrappinAbby and I have a special project to share with all of you today using some products from ClearSnap and Scor-pal. The reason this project is so special is because it's a mixed media canvas of my beautiful daughter Kaley and I. 
Products used:
ClearSnap Pearlized Accent Ink
ClearSnap Smooch Spritz Pink Sprinkles
Here are the products and items I selected to use for this project...
For my first layer on the canvas..I used some of the Guava spray to create a "frame" around where I was going to place my photo strip...
While that was drying I started in on my letters. I used the Smooch Glitz Sparkle in pink on the You and Me letters and used some of the Smooch Pearlized Accent ink in Gold on the & symbol...
I wanted to add some additional texture to the canvas so I mixed together some Gesso and some of the Smooch Spritz Pink Sprinkles and painted that over some texture tape that I added to the lower left hand corner of the canvas. I have a photo of this at the end of the post...
I set the canvas aside to dry and started working on my vellum rosette and accent strip that I wanted to add to the canvas. I took a 1 1/2" strip of vellum and made a score mark at every 1/2". I then folded along the score lines, cut out a circle from another piece of vellum..added some Score-tape to the circle and created a rosette...
 I didn't take a photo of this but I used another 1 1/2" strip of vellum and made a score mark at every 1/4" to create a texture strip that I used as an accent peeking out from the right hand side of my photo strip.  Once the inks and sprays were dry I placed my letters on the canvas and used more Scor-tape to adhere everything to the canvas including my photo strip...
 For the rest of the project I simply started layering my flowers, papers and vellum pieces on the canvas. For added texture I took a black stamp pad in addition to the ClearSnap Guava ink pad and randomly stamped background images all over the canvas. I have to say I was sort of addicted to the Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink in Gold...I used it for additional texture throughout the canvas as well. I love these products...they go on so smoothly. Here are some photos of my completed canvas..
I had so much fun creating this canvas and I was able to use some of the ClearSnap prodcuts I haven't tried before. I love how this turned out and my daughter already has it hung on the wall in her bedroom. 
I hope I was able to inspire you to use some of the amazing ClearSnap products in a mixed media canvas and with some other craft mediums along with your Scor-pal and Score-tape...two of my must have craft items. 
Thanks for stopping by the Scor-pal blog today and for checking out another ScrappinAbby project. 
Happy Craftin!!
