Hoppity Hop Time With May Arts and Helmar!

19 November 2012

 Good morning fellow twisted muses!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day and enjoying this awesome Fall time of year.  Today and tomorrow, May Arts is teaming up with the creative and awesomely talented Helmar creative team.  You should have arrived from the talented Miss Kate's blog.  If not, then head on back to the May Arts blog and join in the fun.  You won't want to miss a single thing along the way.  Plus, true to the Ribbon Lady's style, there's a giveaway!  Keep reading for the deets!  Here is the line-up!


For my project, I decided to go back, waaaaay back, to my roots and bust out a layout.  It's been a little over a year since I've dabbled in that arena and figured Glitz Designs' "Cashmere Dame" was the perfect line to use.



Beautiful color mixed with equally beautiful and bold patterns just called to me and accented this photo perfectly.  I used a Helmar adhesive tape runner to glue down all of my papers.


 My twine is glued down using some of Helmar's amazing 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.  When I say "amazing", I mean it.  I'm not a fan of liquid adhesives because I am impatient.  This stuff is a dream! 


A few Prima vines and a Prima chipboard piece are great accents.


I used Helmar's Zap Dots to pop my image and elements off the page.  And of course, more May Arts twine adds a nice touch.


Now for the giveaway!  All you need to do is leave a comment on any stop along the way and you will be entered into the drawing by May Arts.  Easy as pie!

Thanks for hopping along with us.  Your next stop is the wonderful Jen Matott of the Helmar team.

Cheers!
