Creative Water Pages Day 1 of 2......

It's day 5 of our Fabulous Week with Helmar Adhesives
and we have something really fun for you to see and
to play along with for the next couple of days......

All of us here at BC love Summer...and
if there is anything that everyone loves to do in the summer
more than eat ice cream or gelato it is getting wet to beat
the heat in some way or another.  Our challenge for the next 2 days
was to use different techniques to create water on our pages
and make them really pop and really look wet.....

and---- we want to have some giveaways so here is our
challenge to you!  You can win a huge box of BC goodies
just by finding a few things on our layouts listed at the bottom
of this page..... and for more fun.... if you love playing
Where's Waldo.... one of our DT has Waldo somewhere on
her blog on Fri and Sat. so if you click on the names under each photo
you can hop to their blogs to see more close ups and photos
of each page and find where Waldo is today. And a chance
to win more prizes on their blogs too!!!  How fun is this!!!

He looks like this just to help you with this very fun search.....

the top of the photo!!

Designers Notes: Create a Grid-like layout by arranging twelve 
 2 1/2 inch squares around the outside of  11 X 11 piece 
of white cardstock. Add your 6 X 8 photo to the center
 of your layout. Embellish with sticker elements and chipboard. 
To add beads to your layout use Helmars Scrap Dots!
 This glue is perfect because it dries clear, and the beads stick great!

The chipboard swirls and letters have been coated with glossy accents, 
and I have glimmer misted the background and 
applied glossy accents to the large droplets for a water effect.
