Memory Art Page | Tapped Out

Happy Friday everyone! I have been spending time in my art journal calendar this week, finishing my July pages, creating my August calendar page and adding some memories upon which to reflect.
The page I did today uses images from the AP2027 Feats of Strength, the Tagged Alphabet, Maya Mist, Paris Trunk reinker, Sakura Crystal Lacquer, Glitz Peek-a-Boos punchinella and book paper from AlteredPages.com along with brown acrylic paint, gold sharpie marker and photos.

The Process:

The page was layered on an upcycled travel catalog and painted with brown acrylic paint and then swiped over the top with Walnut Ink Paris Ink Reinker. Punchinella was used as a mask with the Copper Maya Mist adding a mica rich shine and visual texture to the page. a piece of book paper was torn and attached using Sakura Hobby Crafts 3D Crystal Lacquer. The letters were trimmed to rectangles out of the Tag Alphabet Collage Sheet. The fleur de lys and the commemorative scout stamp were trimmed out of the AP207 Feats of Strength Collage Sheet. These were layered with the photos and the transparent frames from the Glitz Peek-a-Boos. As a final touch the gold sharpie served both as accent to the collage pieces and journaling instrument for the page.
This was a proud moment for our family and I love that AlteredPages.com has such a unique array of collage images and accessories to help create any memory art.

The Store:

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
