Adhesive Solution Ideas

I start by creating a simple layered background, matting the photo in white cardstock, then a larger mat of patterned paper and then another layer of white cardstock, all with the edges distressed. I’m useing the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser for the photo and then Crafty Foam Tape White for the other layers.

Adhesive Solution #1:

The first tricky piece that I need to adhere is the branch of flowers across the bottom of the layout. The layout is going to be framed and everything needs to be adhered securely place. I used Adhesive Lines across the entire branch to make sure it was firmly in place.

Adhesive Solution #2:

Continue to add the dimensional flowers around the photo and more around the branch. Here I’m using Adhesive Dots Medium to make sure all of these tricky pieces stay in place.

Adhesive Solution #3:

The paper collection includes a stunning sheet of very intricate paper die cuts. As always, I wanted to pop these up to create lots of dimension. The tricky part is that most of them are very fine.

For this I cut very narrow strips of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Mix, then cut those into smaller pieces to fit each piece. I added them around the matted photo and the dimensional branch.
