Hello Spring!

Ok, so it's not THAT warm yet here in Wisconsin, but the colors in the Hello Spring Kit just scream SPRING!
And here is what I created with some of the items from the Hello Spring kit:
Do you see the blue background? That is adhered to the back side of the Build-A-Book acrylic page! And can you guess what I used to adhere it??? Helmar's V2 Vellum Adhesive! I sprayed the V2 on the blue paper, let it sit for 5 minutes and then placed the Build-A-Book acrylic page to it. It does NOT make the paper look cloudy or even show the adhesive at all! The rest of the elements were placed on top side of the acrylic. I like doing this to add depth to my projects :) That, along with Helmar's Zapdots, really makes this project dimensional. I used the Zapdots on the cloud and the owl. The Alphas are Add-Ons for the Hello Spring Kit. When you purchase the kit you will receive 30% off the alphas!
And for those of you that don't like double-sided paper.... the blue (background) is the back side of the green (grass) that I used!!!! Check out the paper here :)
I hope you all have a MOST wonderful week!!!

A door hanging I made for my mom

And a few peeks of Nat's LOs!!

I am so proud of my girls... they BOTH took 1st place in the most creative fun float!!! I gave them a few rhinestones and then the only other thing I helped with was cutting a flower for Cassidy. They both came up with their own ideas and did their own thing! Here they are with their fun floats, certificates and 1st place ribbons :)

And my gorgeous Caytlynn :) Once and a while I capture her essence and here it is!

Welcome Sign

Welcome Blog Hoppers!!!!!!
I choose to do a Welcome sign created with Urban Swank products along with lots of different Helmar products.

I am featuring the Textured Effects today, just one of my Helmar favorites! There's so many cool things that you can do with this. Pretty much anything you want to make shiny or add dimension to you can slap this one - lol!
For this project I choose to make "epoxy type" butterflies.

I started with cutting out butterflies and then Glimmer Misting them. After they dry, I used Helmar's repositional runner to stick it down so it would not move. Then I applied the Textured Effects and created some lines in them to add some more dimension, see below :)

As you can see below it dries clear with a glossy coating and you can see the ripples I made with the lines, cool, hey?
I also used lots of Helmar's Zap Dots :)
And, of course, I used the 450 Quick Dry to adhere the lace to the bottom :) I used just a small line of it on the bottom and that lace is not going anywhere!!!
I used Embossing powder here to get this awesome look!

Thanks for checking out my Helmar project!

For your chance to win a 8.45 fl. oz. bottle of Helmar Textured Effects please leave a comment attached to this post. We will randomly select a winner to win a free bottle. Good luck!
