Hi Helmar fans, Martha Richardson here and I'm back for a 2nd term on the HELMAR Design Team! To kick off the month of May we have this Challenge Sketch created by our incredible sketch artist Lydell Quin. You're challenge is to interpret this "YOUR WAY" and post it to the Helmar FB page. My challenge was to do the challenge...not my strongest point but I gave it my best shot. My problem with challenges is two-fold...I'm not much of a LO type girl and secondly something happens to my brain when I get working...it goes off on it's own tangents!I'm then not responsible for what happens.
I love creating canvases...knowing that a canvas will be hung on a wall or displayed on a mantle I MUST make sure that any embellishment applied will stick. This project was created using HELMAR Premium Craft Glue, 450 Quick Dry Adhesive & Liquid Scrap Dots. Through experience I'm pretty much guaranteed this this is not going anywhere! After creating the background I applied all the of Webster's Pages paper with Craft Glue, bringing the strips over the edge of the 6x12" canvas. The clock was created using a Tim Holtz mask and Tattered Angels Glimmer Chalkboard on watercolor paper, a Tim Holtz stamp was stamped on Kraft paper using Archival Ink in Jet Black. The angel wings are from Wendy Veechi Art Parts and were painted with gold paint.
In this picture you can see the dimension of the embellishment I created, it will need all the staying power offered by Helmar Adhesives. This part of the project was adhered to the canvas with 450 Quick Dry and the brass key was attached to the angel wings with both 450 Quick Dry & Liquid Scrap Dots. I have no fear that this will fall off!
Now I'm issuing you a 2nd challenge...can you see the May Challenge in my project? What do you think...I really would love to hear your thoughts!
