How To Make A Homecoming Layout With Best Glue Ever

The uneven surface on this homecoming layout was not an obstacle for Best Glue Ever. I adhered patterned paper, craft foam, and stickers right over all the little ridges. The result is a wonderfully messy page with great staying power!
~ Homecoming 2015 ~
The first layers on this page were made with Nuvo Embellishment paste and stencils. This created texture, depth, and an uneven surface. Best Glue Ever sticks to anything so I had no concerns.
I cut the photo mats at a 1/4" and a 1/2" larger than the photo and used BGE to layer them.
Thin stripes of BGE attached the photo to the layered mat.
The geometric diecut had very thin strips of paper but a No-Clog Writing Cap made it easy to add tiny dots of BGE to the paper. The die-cuts were placed on either side of the photo mat.
Foam tape is easily replaced with craft foam and BGE. I glued to squares to the back of the photo mat. It only take s a couple minutes to set and is so efficient to use.
More BGE adhered the photo mat cluster to the layout. 
A couple minutes to set and my photo was immovable, despite the uneven layers of mixed media. 
I adhered another geometric die-cut to the upper left corner. Once again the No-Clog Writing Cap gave me ultimate control and the ability to place only tiny dots on the paper.
I arranged the diecut onto the cardstock and mixed media surface then trimmed off the edge. 
My title was next, but I knew those alpha stickers would not adhere to the variety of surfaces. No worries, a couple drops of BGE and my title was secure. I used a strip of paper to keep the letters even.
A few stickers and my layout was complete. Best Glue Ever worked for every surface and material I used. ScraPerfect has BGE, No-Clog Writing Caps and a variety of other crafty tools.
