Tattered Angels, FabScraps & HELMAR...oh my!

It's beginning to feel like the holidays will be here sooner than I ready? NO!...but I will be with a little help from Tattered Angels &  HELMAR. This week the HELMAR Design Team is sharing projects that combine fabulous products and embellishments from FabScraps {if you haven't checked this company out you must to see all the products} and HELMAR adhesives. I created a LO because I thought it showcased the FabScraps products I received. I prefer a simple style with a few great embellishments, for this project it was a fantastic bare chipboard frame and metal embellishments. You can see below the progression of the FabScrap pieces from plain to glimmery, from single to layered. The FabScraps chipboard frame was first misted with Tattered Angels Mallard Glimmer Mist and then again to kick it up a notch with Ocean Spray Glimmer Glam.
LO-STEPS-webHere is the finished Lo and you will see how the fabulous FabScraps pieces have helped to complete the piece. If you look closely you will see the frame appears to float over the paper, the Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots has actually lifted the frame by 1/8". Once dried it is not going to collapse on the project...that is the amazing part of the Liquid Scrap Dots! Using papers from 7 Dots Studio and Basic Grey collections they have been misted, inked, stenciled, splattered, stapled, distressed and torn and then adhered together using the Quick-Fix Adhesive Runner. Remaining Prima felt pieces are tucked into corners and another FabScraps metal embellishment with a Sparkler from Webster's Pages was attached with Premium Craft Glue and Gemstone Glue.
Because I didn't want to add journaling to the LO itself I created a simple hidden pocket on the back, applied with the Quick-Fix Adhesive Runner to secure my journaling spot.


Thanks for stopping's always nice to have company ;) Until next time...
