My Joy

My Joy

It's Friday with a whole weekend ahead to create!  Here is a layout to inspire you to pull out those wonderful Helmar products and see where they take you!  Kathleen here to share how I created this layout.

This layout is all about layering.   
12x12 Beach Towel Stripe paper (cut out a 9x9 square from the back)
11x11" Hello Sunshine paper (Use Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue to adhere the first two paper together as shown above).
9x9" reverse side of Beach Towel Stripe paper (glue it off center on top of the last paper).
6x12" Beach Party paper (glue this paper 1 1/2" from the right hand side).

Select and cut out various 4x6" cards and arrange them in layers behind the picture.
To the left hand side I used a doily for added texture and interest.  
I used two straws of different colors and cut them in graduating sizes then glued them in place with Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA Glue.  I get a lot of mileage from this glue.  It offers a bit of wiggle room time after placing my element to the paper.  Once everything is in place and glued I can rely on Helmar that it will stand the test of time!

I placed the photo on a piece of corrugated cardboard to give it height using Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue.  With this glue I am sure that it will not yellow my picture over time.
Now to finish our fun and summery layout with loads of flowers and cardstock sticker!  Always adhere them with Helmar Glue!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope what you have seen inspires you to create!  And remember to include Helmar Products!
