Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Liquid Adhesives

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!!!

Today, part of the Taylored Expressions Baker's Dozen are sharing with you the latest Center of Attention Product Spotlight, Liquid Adhesives!!

For my projects today, I used Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and I must tell you...I am in L-O-V-E!

Normally, my glue of choice is Tombow Mono-Mulit Liquid Glue, so trying another liquid adhesive wasn't a huge jump for me.

The first thing that impressed me with the Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive is the precision tip. It's perfect for those times that you just need a touch of glue on a project.

I have two projects to share with you today, and I used the Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive on both. For my first project, I decorated a frame that I have had in my "to be altered" drawer forever. I started by painting the frame and then adding a coat of glitter to the entire frame.

I then stamped the palm tree, surfboard and flippers, all from Hangin' Out At The Beach by Taylored Expressions, in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored them all with Copic Markers. I stamped the sun from Garden Party Blooms, also from Taylored Expressions, in Colorbox Yellow Ochre Chalk Ink.

I cut out each of the images and now, this is where the magic of Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive became obvious to me!

I was able to adhere ALL of the images directly to my glittered frame and it adhered SO quickly!! Try that with most other glues and it just won't stick to the glitter (believe me...I have tried!). Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive even adhered the strip of cork I added to the bottom to look like sand!

For the inside of my frame, I stamped the sentiment from Hangin' Out At The Beach, "Life is like a wave. You can't change the way it breaks but you can change the way you ride it" in Memento Tuxedo Black onto some Early Bird patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket. I love this sentiment and I plan on putting this on my desk at work...the perfect place for an inspirational saying!

I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC79, as the layout for my matching card.

I used the same sentiment from Hangin' Out At The Beach and I cut it out and embossed it with Rectangle Nestabilities. I stamped the flower from Hangin' Out At The Beach by inking it up with Colorbox Yellow Ochre Chalk Ink and then stamping off once before stamping it onto my focal panel.
I added some more glitter to the surfboard and finished it off with glittery brads, satin ribbon and sewing on the panels!
