I love Fancy Pants Designs' transparencies! The printed transparency designs are so graphic and fun, whilte the flocked transparencies give great texture to any project! This week, two of our Pocket Chicks focus on our transparencies from the Wave Searcher collection, and they have some great ideas to share with you! Take a look!
Soak Up The Sun by Jess Mutty
Jess says, "I really loved the yellow rays on this Wave Searcher transparency but the surfer dude and numbers were just a wee bit too grown up and sporty for my two year old. When this sort of thing happens I try to remember to treat a transparency like any other layer on my page ... you obviously put a base under it, but you can also add layers on TOP of it!
By adding the cut journaling block, some chipboard flowers, and the pop-dotted chipboard title block I covered up the parts that didn't apply to my layout. You still see the majority of the transparency: the swirls, leaves, and of course the cool rays that look like sunlight shining on my toddler because of the photo angle.
I also added the chipboard and button banner at the top to balance the dimension of the bottom corner. This method really incorporates the transparency in a way that blends with the entire page!"
Take Action by Piradee Talvanna
Piradee says, "Lately I'm spending way too much time thinking about things that I should do, rather than actually doing it! And therefore I created this little reminder to be framed up on my wall - to remind me to TAKE ACTION. Best to action on those ideas or thoughts than to just dream about them, right?
And the color combination in the Wave Searcher collection was perfect for this piece, along with the flocked transparency that I used to back the sayings. Love how the flocked transparency not only added a different texture (fuzzy) feel to the project, but allowed the sayings to look as thou they are floating and provide even more depth and dimension to the project"
Way cool ideas, right? What's your favorite way to use transparencies? We'd love to hear your ideas!
