I LOVE Helmar adhesives! I was so excited to be able to create with these products so I made a fun little banner using Donna Downey's Canvas ATCs from Prima. I started by added some background color with the Design Memory Craft Gelato colors: Mango, Tangerine, Lemon, Bubble Gum, Blueberry, Lime, Licorice, Green Tea, and Metallic Blueberry. These became the base of all the pieces.
Then, I used the Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Nougat 178 and Black 199 to stamp using Prima's new stamps from their Romance Novel line and Craftsman line.
Next, I used some spray inks and Design Memory Craft Gelato sprays(I mixed up a few in mini misters) through some of Donna Downey's new stencils. I also mixed the licorice with Gesso to create a paint that I could pounce through the stencils.
The Gelatos were perfect to water down on a craft mat to create a color wash for the paintable Canvas pieces from Prima. They have resist already printed on them so when the color is applied, it shows the design.
Once I got them all colored, I started to glue the banner pieces together on a piece of seam binding using Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this glue! It's perfect on fabrics and paper alike. I glued all the pieces down with it and added it to some bling for a finishing touch!
