I was finally able to get my hands on some Helmar's glue and now I know what all of the fuss is about. I pretty much used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive for nearly the entire layout. Love this stuff! I decided to enter the August Challenge over at the Helmar's blog and created this fun layout.
I used Bo Bunny's Cambridge Collection for this layout. The photos are of my son a few years ago.
I had so much fun getting messy with paint!! A splatter here, a splatter there...
The awesome chipboard elements are made by The Dusty Attic. Here I used the Tribal Design #7 (DA0311). I dabbed it with white acrylic paint and spritzed it with Donna Salazar's new Smooch Spritz- Candle Glow.
To alter this cog (Jumbo Cogs DA0232), I first dry embossed it using a Tim Holtz Texture Fades embossing folder. I then inked it, painted it, smooched it and heat embossed it with Distress embossing powder. It takes a lot of work to look grungy! LOL.
I made the green flowers using Donna Salazar's Rose Creations die by Spellbinders. It is my favorite die for flower making.
Dusty Attic Cogs #1 (DA0001)
The buttons you see are also chipboard elements (Buttons DA0510) that were covered with paper. I added eyelets to the holes.
The title is made up of Grungeboard letters and alphabet stickers. I traced the chipboard buttons onto my layout and stitched the circles for added texture. The edges of the photos were distressed with white paint.
