Now, you all know how I LOOOVE my BOSTIK Glu Stiks....so, of course, their BLU GLU STIKS are even better....because they go on blue - then dry clear! So you can see EXACTLY where you're gluing for those 'must get into the corner' moments:)
Of course, I'm not being fussy here... but you can see the colour:) Handy, handy!
And as for the Blu Tack - well, I'm pretty sure it's a well known & used product - both the traditional grey-blue coloured one & the coloured one:
In my scrapping, I find it REALLY handy to hold stuff in place.....like when I've got a LO that I KNOW I'm gonna want to make sure that things are placed on straight!
I'm a lazy sod when it comes to scrapping.....but honestly, it takes 2 secs to attach a bit of BLU TACK to the back of your page....& then you can temporarily attach it to your grid mat, square, so everything stays firmly in place & will be straight!
This saves a whole lotta tears later on, when you're trying to rip stuff off 'cos it's crooked!
For this page, I wanted to place my photo in the midde...so I used a random piece of 12x12 paper, with some BLU TACK attached, across the page - using the grid lines at the edges as my guide:
Then I simply placed my photo in position, attached it, & removed the paper below it!
Easy peasy! I had FUN creating this page, with a whole bunch of goodies sent to me in a RAK from the LOVELY, talented MITRA P.... thank you, my friend:):)
The back ground paper is SODAlicious:
On the left of the photo, a little piece of paper is peeking out.
Now, I don't believe in wasting paper you can't see, so I ripped off only the end bit that I needed!!!
A couple more closies:
This is my boy who is now a boat builder - shipwright - & I am very proud of him! He's changed a bit from here....but he STILL loves fishing just as much! That's one thing my brother has been excellent at teaching my boys:)
Loooove those waves, & the sticker sun & triangles sort of 'broke up' the quite busy bg pp....I sprayed some mists on for that reason, too:)
All the little tabs are from FLUTTERBY DESIGNS.....I adore them! They worked so well here:)
I hope this shows you how you can use these WONDERFUL Bostik products [which I wouldn't be surprised if you had lurking around!] in a scrappy way:)
Thanks so much for taking a look at this post......happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
