It's "clearly" time for another challenge @ Frosted Designs!

It's my turn to host the Friday challenge at Frosted Designs and I hope you'll join in the fun!  The challenge is to use some sheer or clear on your project.  Think vellum, transparencies, clear photo overlays, acrylic embellishments/alphas, and any other clear or sheer items you can think of.

For my page, I used one of the Project Life photo overlays over the photo of my granddaughter.  I printed the photo at 4" x 4" because I wanted to place it and the overlay on top of the orange paper for a little contrast.  Adhering transparent/clear items can be a little tricky sometimes.  To adhere the photo overlay, I squeezed a little bit of Tombow Aqua liquid glue onto some scrap paper, dipped a toothpick into the glue and applied tiny bits to the underside of the overlay, along the lines of the white letters.  This keeps any adhesive from showing through on the right side.

I also added some clear acrylic flowers that have been in my stash forever.  I punched some small circles from patterned paper and adhered those under the flowers, and then added some enamel dots on top of the flowers.  The papers and metal flair are from one of my favorite paper collections ever, "Hello Sunshine" from Lawn Fawn.
Supplies used from the Frosted Designs store:
Lawn Fawn "Hello Sunshine" collection kit
Project Life Photo Overlays #3
Elle's Studio "Everyday Moments" stamp set
Lawn Fawn is sponsoring this challenge, and the prize is a 6x6 paper pad and a stamp set!  Just link up your project to the Frosted Designs blog for your chance to win.  Can't wait to see your projects!
