Paint for Helmar

Hey Everyone 

I'm here on the Helmar blog to share a project I created using their glues and you will see I use quite a few different ones each for a different reason

I used a piece of cardboard to create this project I didn't have a canvas that suited what I wanted and I have large stash of cardboard cut off's just incase (I also use it to raise my photos and other things up on my projects)

So I started off by scrapping a layer of white gesso across the cardboard which gave a great texture because of the grooves in the board

I used some Prima Marketing Inc Metallic Accents Pastels watercolour paints to drip down the board
I also painted the brush stencil to make it look like thats what painted the board and the word PAINT

Whenever I glue a photo to anything I always use the Acid Free Glue so I know the photo is always going to be safe 
Then to stick the boards together I used the Super-Tac Glue I know this will hold them together well

Here I had used a stencil of a jar with some modelling paste and painted a mix of the colours I'd used and a bit of grey to make it look like paint water 
I wanted the jar to look like glass so I used the Premium Craft Glue as it dries clear and gave it the look I wanted

I used the Tacky Craft Glue or the Super-Tac Glue to add to my micro beads and Art Stones I like these as they are flexible glues and they dry clear and don't take away the colour from the micro beads like some of the other glues do

Liquid Scrap Dots is awesome for adding dimension to thin things  like these letters that need height  either side as the middle has been stuck to the arrow but the top and bottom of the letters need be stuck down too and because they are narrow it makes it hard to use anything else

Here I added a few little embellishments including a small brush, a jar that I added some bronze spray too and a Flutteryby Designs Flair Button too

The word stickers are from one of Tim Holtz's sticker books and the hearts are from a Kaisercraft sticker sheet I have had for awhile

The chipboard thistle flowers are from Memory Maze and I stamped them with a tiny dot stamp which I also used randomly stamped around various places

The arrow under the word Paint is also from Memory Maze and is part of the Boho Deer Skull with Feathers Set

Here are all the glues I used and you can find them at most of your local stores or on the Helmar site

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come back soon xx
