Welcome to the Helmar Blog Hop!  I am honored and excited to feature Helmar's Acid Free Glue…


This is one of my most favorite adhesives!  It was originally made for book binding so it is strong, acid free, does not yellow and does not buckle your paper.  It is perfect for all those Altered Art projects.  Today I want to show some quick and easy techniques using this awesome adhesives. 

For my first project I purchased this inexpensive recycled journal.

Since I have to pretty everything up, I immediately turn to my Acid Free Glue.  I quickly gathered products from some of my favorite manufacturers:

Now remember the idea is quick and easy so I simply place a thin layer of Acid Free Glue on the outside face of the journal.  Helmar sells a handy little glue spreader or I use an inexpensive foam brush to get that thin layer.  When I am done with the brush I simply rinse it off and it is ready to re-use.

I finished the project by adding the ribbon, Magic Mesh, Flowers & Bling to create this adorable journal:
