Helli Mae

 You know you are on a good thing when you get to play with what you love & one of my huge favorites would have to be Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots, its clear and creates the most amazing 3D effects.
 Team it up with Helmar Acid Free- Neutral pH glue and your well on the way to some awesome creations!
 This is what I came up with with some of my fav's - I started out with a Out There Chippy Shadow Box, adhered it all together with Helmar Acid Free- Neutral pH glue covered it with some gorgeous Pion Design - Studio of Memories Papers using Helmar Acid Free- Neutral pH glue.
  added some German Scrap paper lace trims around the edges of the shadow box.
Fussy cut some flowers, a butterfly then applied Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to each flower, leaf & under each wing of the butterfly - gives that awesome 3D effect LOVE IT !!
 Pearls here and there
 and there you go 'Helli Mae' at her best!
Till next time happy creating & Take Care

Our Wedding!

Words can’t explain how excited I am to be a part of the Helmar DT- to me it’s like being a kid in a candy shop. So without rambling on too much more about me - here's my first creation with full-on Helmar goodness!!
A girlfriend asked me to design a wedding album and this is what I came up with! AGB designed this totally awesome house for me to work some magic!
 The house is built up with layers of chipboard, each layer being adhered to the next with Helmar Acid Free. I started laying bricks using Helmar Acid Free and then applied texture paste to add texture to the bricks.
 Check out the layers!
 Helmar 450 Quick Dry was just perfect for all those fiddly bits and pieces like the frames, flower pot, flower vine and hardware, love the fact that I didn’t have to hold them for ages for the glue to dry!
 To get a grass type effect with loads of dimension I took some Helmar Scrap Dots and paper laces, did a little fussy cutting.
Then a dab of Helmar Scrap Dots on each point and joined a few of them together.
 Check out the dimension  Helmar Scrap Dots offers  Love it!
Till next time happy creating & take care

Look what I found in my garden!

I have been gardening OK playing.
I started out with Out There Chippy's Wheelbarrow which I painted and sanded here and there to give that antique look. Grabbed the trusty Helmar Acid Free and glued away!
 a pearl strand here and there
 some Scrappers Floss which I applied Helmar Fabric Stiffener & Draping Fluid, then curled it around a skewer to get a curling effect and popped that in too
and presto a gorgeous center piece for the table!
Till next time happy creating & Take care
