Helmar Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! So, I worked so hard to do a video of my project, and tonight as I was going to upload it I notice my video camera is gone! Yes missing! Apparently, Garett took it with him to the Christmas parade! So When he gets home tomorrow I will have to upload it then :( until then I took some photos of my project! It's an altered note card box!

I took some antique book pages and tore them up into small pieces. Then I took some Designer Acid Free Glue by Helmar and mixed a generous amount with water and a bit of white acrylic paint. I then covered the box with the mixture and applied the pieces of book pages covering the entire box. Lastly I coated the entire project with the remaining mixture. By doing this it created a very thick, hard, washed effect. I love it and you have to try it!

When it was finally dry I used some Helmar Scrap Dots to glue all of my embellishments on!
