Good Luck layout featuring Helmar Quickfix Adhesive Runner

Hooray for Fall!!!

Love this picture of my daughter and her classmates celebrating the completion of their master's program for P.A.  Kathleen here and one super proud mom at that!  So today I thought I would share a simple layout using layering and featuring Helmar Quickfix Adhesive Runner.

I selected an assortment of cards, tags, chipboard and fussy cut flowers, rooster and fruit from Graphic 45 French Country Collection.  Beginning with a neutral background paper I edged it by painting on walnut stain. Run your Helmar Adhesive runner a couple of times on the back side of each of these cards.

 Begin by cascading your large rectangular card from the top middle of the paper down to the center right hand side.  Use your Helmar Scrap Dots on the back of the picture and float it over the frame.

Tuck your chipboard under the frame and again on the bottom piece using Helmar Professional Acid free Glue.  Starting half way down from the left side of the paper cascade your fruits and flowers to the bottom center of the paper. Use Helmar Adhesive runner on the base flowers but set a few aside.

To give dimension to some of my sunflowers and grapes I popped a couple of the 1/2" Zapdots underneath.

I hope this Autumn project has inspired your to create your own seasonal creation!  As always the perfect design starts with the best Helmar glue products.
