Helmar USA Design Guest Designer Submission

Hi Everyone,
I am really going out of my comfort zone here.   I regularly peruse the Scrapscene blog.  It's a great blog, they have almost daily postings about all that's going on in the scrapping world.  About a week ago they listed a Guest Designer Call for the Helmar Company.  It caught my eye because I had just bought my first bottle of Helmar's Premium Craft Glue a few days earlier at my LSS and had already been using it on two projects.  Good Stuff.  I am always on the search for a good liquid adhesive, I use a lot of it.
I decided to submit for the Guest Designer Call.   I figured what the heck, I already had started two of the three projects anyway and had the third planned. 
So, here are my projects.

The cover and a few pages from my 50th Birthday mini book. 
I used Helmar's Premium Craft Glue to adhere the papers to the book pages and to adhere the die cut letters and 50 to the cover.

Some of the organza flowers I made.  I used the Helmar's Premium Craft Glue to adhere all of the layers together.  I found that if I put a drop of it on the top and then pressed all the layers together the glue would adhere them together until I added a brad or beads for the centers. I also used the Helmar's Premium Craft Glue to adhere the leaves to some of the flowers.

For these next flowers I used the glue a little differently.  I cut a circle of the organza, applied a spot of glue and adhered organza strips in a spiral motion. Even thought the glue dries pretty quickly it stays tacky and flexible for enough time that I could manipulate the pieces of organza exactly the way I wanted to.  I also used Helmar's to adhere the seed beads to wire to create the stamens.

 My last project is a hanging home decor item that I made using a small wooden bird house.  The entire thing hangs about 26" long.


Some of the detail. The fence is approx. 2 1/2" X 4" and the birdhouse is approx. 4" X 4".



 I used the Helmar's Premium Craft Glue to adhere the papers and wood veneer to the birdhouse.  I also used it to adhere the die cut letters to the fence
