    I love layering these days for that reason I can hide my adhesive on clear embellishments and vellum papers! But the Tiny Tim gets a lot of use too ;)

  • LainEhmann

    It’s fun to have lots of options! :)

    Don’t forget washi tape — a fabulously visible way to attach a clear embellie!

    Great ideas Lain! I’ve used stickles and diamond glaze colored with a reinker to attach clear things as well. Sometimes thy work well, and sometimes they don’t. Depends on how stiff the base paper is.

    You certainly have to be clever when using clear accents! Thanks for the tips, Lain!

  • LainEhmann

    Thank YOU!

    Cool idea. I’ve tried that with acrylic-on-acrylic but it got awfully smooshy.

    Did someone say “Wasabi?!”

    I find that uniformly coating the piece with adhesive on the backside is invisible on things like vellum (I use a Xyron) and other clear materials (experiment first). I also use eyelets (e.g. on the corners) to attach clear items. You could also punch a hole in the item, depending on what it is, and thread string/ribbon through it to hold it in place.
