Now, On with the show!!
*************************************************
Today I have a layout to share with you. I am not much of a Halloween kinda gal, though looking at all of the AMAZING projects my Helmar Hotties created sure is inspiring! Instead, I chose to share a fall themed project with you.
This past weekend we celebrated THANKSGIVING here in Canada! I have SO much to be grateful for, that I could not pass up the opportunity to create a project with this in mind!
THANKFUL
Here are a few detail shots to give you a feel for the dimension on this page! There are 7 layers of paper on here! SO much fun!!!
In creating this page, I used 2 Helmar products... Premium Craft Glue and Helmar Gemstone glue!
Everything on this page was adhered using the Premium Craft Glue! The papers, the chipboard, the lace, the ribbon, buttons, my journaling strips... EVERYTHING!!! This glue does it ALL! It dries clear and has a FANTASTIC hold! Seriously... I'll never use any other adhesive for the bulk of my page! I'm so THANKFUL for Helmar's Premium Craft Glue!! :)
Now, I also used some Gemstone glue... can you guess where I used it? Yes, you got it! On my little apple tree!!! Here's a quick tutorial using Gemstone glue to make your own apple tree!!


You will need:
Helmar Gemstone Glue
Maya Road chipboard tree (or other tree)
Red Glitter
Large toothpick or wooden skewer
Glimmer mist or paint
1. Paint tree green trunk/branches brown.
2.Using toothpick, dip small dabs of gemstone glue randomly over green part of the tree. These do not have to be all the same size.
3. Sprinkle with LOTS of red glitter over a piece of scrap paper. Let sit for just a second or 2.
4. Shake off glitter and tap several times to get off the excess. Let sit until dry... approx 5 minutes. Then you should be able to brush off the extra sprinkles of glitter without smearing your "apples"!
5. Add the tree trunk and branches using the Premium Craft Glue! Your Apple tree looks good enough to eat! :)
Thank you SO much for stopping by! As a special THANK YOU to you, I'm offering up a goodie filled RAK of my own to give away! How do you win? Just become a follower of my blog (Those already following are also entered) and leave a comment! Then you will be entered to win! I have stamps, flowers, stickers, paper and lots more for one lucky follower! And hey... if I get 100 comments or more, I'll add a second RAK... so what'cha waitin for!?!?
