TTT Transparency Tip

TTT Transparency Tip
This is a two-for-one tip!

by: Chrissy Greenman


Recycle: After you cut apart your 8 x 11 transparencies save the scraps. You can use them to create custom made transparencies for your layout. Cut them into the desired shape, such as a leaf, and embellish as you choose. You can paint them, doodle on them, ink them, sew them…..there are so many possibilities.


Here's a closer look at the transparency leaves
that Chrissy cut out, inked and stitched on!


Sewing: This leads me to my second tip: sewing on transparencies. It is so easy and really makes a statement. You can sew them onto your layouts instead of using glue dots!! You can also sew designs on them such as the veins of a leaf. It is much easier than you may think.

Love your LO and your idea, I once made bubbles by painting the edges of leftover transparencies... The LO is in the TTT Gallery :)
