Techniques & Materials Sampler uses the Best Glue Ever!

Last month I was at a girl friend's  house and saw a project she had created in a Tim Holtz class...a sampler that used his embossing folders, inks, and stamps...and I decided to create one for myself.  I am a big fan of Spellbinders products for my papercrafting, so my Techniques & Materials Sampler uses my collection of M-Bossabilities and Spellbinders Die Templates.
I built the sampler on a piece of Grungeboard and it features a lot of different background materials - metal, cardstock, paper, cardboard, and cork.  I used the Best Glue Ever to attach each square in the patchwork.
The embossed pieces were a bit of a challenge to attach, because of the uneven surface.  The BGE was perfect for them.  I doodled a thin line all over the back, waited for it to dry clear and tacky, then adhered them in place.
There were also a variety of materials that needed to be adhered on top - canvas, glass, cardstock and metal -  and BGE did not let me down!
I am gradually sharing the details on each of the blocks on my blog.  Drop on by if you would like a closer look!
