I missed the Authentique & Helmar Blog hop because I have had the flu. I wanted to post what I created for it anyways because I really had fun playing with the beautiful paper and of course Helmars adhesives!
The paper that I used where from Authentique’s ‘Peaceful Collection’.
I then cut out pieces of Authentique’s beautiful paper and started to layer. I glued buttons, doilies, and some of the paper on with Helmar’s 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. Other pieces of paper, I just stapled on to give a whimsical and aged effect.
To create dimension, I used Helmars Zapdots ,and then I tucked some more paper pieces and buttons underneath. I always love to create an aged look, so I took out my Tim Holtz Distressed Crackle Paint and I had fun roughing up the edges.
I wanted to age the paper doily a bit, so I used Clearsnap gold smooch. I used just a bit to color up the edges.
Oh, and the picture I used is actually one of my own that I took with my IPhone and then had it printed at Social Print Studio. Super fun and cute to do!
