Hi, Vicky blogging today to share a few Winter projects and a flower tutorial that I made using my February Swirlydoos kit.
First up is a layout using lots of premium craft glue for the paper layers, acid free to coat the chipboard in diamond dust (as well as adhere the Dusty Attic snowflakes and flourish to the page), 450 quick dry for the flowers and some adhesive runner for the photos. Good glue really does matter in getting a project properly completed!
HANDMADE FLOWER TUTORIAL
You will need 2 punched or die cut paper flowers with 5 or 6 wide petals (mine are 2.5 inch EK success daisy punches).
Below (from a past project), I used gemtone glue to add loose pearls and used Clearsnap chalk ink for an antique look.
Next up... an off the page project in celebration of LOVE month. A cinnamon heart filled jar (recycled Kraft brand jam jar). I used the Premium craft glue for the layers and Dusty Attic chipboard and then adhered everything to the jar using my favourite glue - the 450 quick dry. This stuff is so strong I even fixed my mop with it!
This project was inspired by the beautiful Feb. Helmar sketch challenge this month. Be sure to link your project in the Helmar blog sidebar for a chance to win some gluey goodness this month!
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!
