Helmar and Art Institue Glitter...oh my!

This week on the Helmar Design Team blog we are working with Art Institute Glitter. Now I'm not much a of a glitter user but I had to give it a try!. I must say I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the help of HELMAR GEMSTONE GLUE applied to random chipboard pieces.

 I actually took 3 different glitter colors from Art Institute Glitter and sprinkled 3 piles of the color next to each other. I then covered each chipboard piece with a thin layer of Helmar Gemstone Glue {with my finger because that's how I roll} and tossed it onto the glitter piles. With a tweezer I then lifted it out of the piles and set aside to dry. I love how the chipboard pieces look with the multicolored glitter.

A mini poster from GLITZ was attached to my handmade background paper with Helmar Acid Free Professional Glue. I attached 3 lantern crystal beads from Blue Moon Beads after using a border punch. Once the chipboard was dry I attached them using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. To complete this and turn it into a small wallhanging I dug through all my metal embellishments and found these small clips from Tim Holtz Ideaology and some pink tulle.  I just love the quote and I'm going to hang this in my studio just to remind me to BELIEVE!

Supplies used:
Art Institue Glitter ~ #38 Sea, #23 Periwinkle, #285 South Seas
Helmar Gemstone Glue, 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, Acid Free Professional Glue
Prima Chipboard
Glitz Designs - I Believe die cut
Hand made background paper

  2. Martha,

    I found your lovely blog through a post at Liz Hicks today about the Oct. Virtual Gallery Walk that you will part of. I am so glad to have found your site and look forward to seeing what you create and share. On a completely different note, I am having trouble locating Helmar products here in the US, especially Liquid Scrapdots, and wondered if you have any suggestions? I live in NY, just outside NYC. Thanks!

  3. Sweet -- the colors are really yummy! I realy like the crystal beads hanging from the bottom, nice touch!


Thanks I he{ART} hearing from you!
