Mixing it up with Fiskars and Helmar

Have a chance to play around with my Fiskars punches and my favourite Helmar adhesives again.

Have had this layout sitting on my desk to create for a while and decided that as I had some freetime this weekend I would give it a go.

This layout was inspired by Patti Milazzo, who orginally created little owls like these ones. I made my owls similar to hers using a mixture of Fiskars and Carl punches that I had on hand. I have modified my owls to suit me and found them very easy to create.

With a little help from Helmar Zapdots and Helmar Liquid Scrapdots, it was easy to create the layers look of my owls.

I also played around with some Helmar Crackle Medium when creating my branches that the owls sat on. They didn't quite look right until I added a coat of the Helmar Crackle Medium and then a lick of white ink rubbed in. It then really made the branches look real.

To see the full layout, hope over to the Helmar Design Team Blog.

Love your little owls and I think you're right the crackle medium certainly made the branches more authentic. Great work!
