How to Create a Fun and Colorful Clear Overlay

I am slowly but surely getting my recent family European vacation scrapped! Venice was filled with color and vibrancy so I wanted a way to celebrate that on my layout. What better way than to combine the Color Fresh collection with some rainbow foil MINC that can be found at your local JOANN store!  First let me share my layout and then I’ll walk you through how my  clear MINC page came together.

As you can see I have created a double page spread using an 8 1/2 x 11 enlarged photo on the left. I then added my foiled clear page as an overlay to to my pocket page.

I love the bright pops of Minc foiled color that splash across my clear page.

My pocket page is filled with photos and memories from our time in Venice. I filled some of the pockets with pattern papers from the Colour Fresh collection and embellished with stickers and stamps also from the Color Fresh collection.

Let me share how easy it was to create the clear page.

1. Grab a clear piece of acetate or transparency and spritz and splash some of the Minc Reactive mist across the page. Allow the mist to dry.

2. Grab your favorite Minc foil color- I chose the rainbow foil and trim a piece of the foil to cover the acetate.

3. Run the acetate through the Minc machine and once through lift to reveal the stunning glossy colorful result.

To complete add some of the Puffy Gold stickers, Thickers and word stickers from the Color Fresh collection as your title.

I love the effect of this clear page that allows the following page to be seen through but also provides some interest with the pops of color! Dont forget your can find all the supplies for this project at your local JOANN store!
