Playing around with Helmar and Fiskars again

Finally got to finish a layout I started while at Escape 2 Create.

I loved making my own background paper to mix things up a bit and this layout was no exception.

Love stamping onto the cardstock and then going over the image with Helmar Acid Free Glue to highlight parts of the image. It is a little bit of a process with colouring in the image with my glue pen full of Helmar Acid Free Glue. However I am impressed with the results that you can achieved so have repeated this process several times on other layouts.

Here's the stamped image after I had then wiped it over with some irridescent white paint and then wiped off the excess paint. Looks quite amazing in real life. Just a little hard to photograph


I then added some dimension to the layout by adhering the embellishments to the page using my Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots I rave about.


And the full layout.

Gotta love my eldest DD eyes !!! Yes I am bias!

AND YES !!!!! the flourish on the page WAS HAND CUT !!! I am a sucker I know.. but everyone kept asking me while I was at the retreat if I had handcut the flourish! With a little bit of help from my Fiskars Fingertip knife the job was done rather quickly !



Can you tell that my scrap trolley was full of lots of Helmar goodies while I was away !!!

SO gorgeous, Michelle! I love the contrasts and 'pops' of color!
