Decorating Doors with Helmar

Hello everyone! I am so excited to share with you today a sign I made for my dear daughter. Last month I shared with you all a sign I made for my son's bedroom door. My son loved it so much and my daughter envied it as much so I had to make her one also! Best Creations "Ballet Princess" papers made it so easy!


Like a lot of girls her age she is into ballet and all things pink. She absolutely adores this sign. The ballerina has been fancy cut out of the Best Creations "Ballet Princess" line and I added a tutu with some Helmar 450. Look at all this wonderful glitter. That all came on the paper, perfectly sealed and no flaking!

The sign is an MDF base shape that I got a long time ago on clearance. I used Helmar Premium Craft Glue to adhere the paper to the sign. Then, I layered Helmar Crackle Step 1 and Step 2 over the paper. I ran a dark pink chalk ink over the edges to highlight the crackle. I really LOVE this stuff!


The Best Creations line "Ballet Princess" also has some wonderful sayings and signs. This frame was blank and I added some stickers to title it Trinity's "Studio". The stickers were white and I painted them with some Smooch. I love changing things up! I used Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots to raise and adhere the stars and Helmar's 450 to adhere the flowers, the eyelash ribbon, beading and grunge board letters.

I hope you have enjoyed all the wonderful Helmar posts this week and in the weeks to come.
