Fall Decor Casting A Glow !!

Hi everyone ! Eunice here ! I have a super quick little fall decor item for you to make for yourself or as a quick little gift for someone special !
I have a collection of vintage jars , but you could use any jar that has a mouth large enough to fit a battery operated candle in ! I love the battery operated candles you can purchase now , especially the ones that come on everyday at a certain time  ! So you can have the glow , without the danger of a flame !
I created a tag to hang on the jar using the tags from Altered Pages ! And in keeping with quick... I used paper from the Glitz paper pack , Yours Truly ! Loved the distressed red paper , so I just glued it on , how easy is that ? No paint or ink !! I did stamp a fall stamp on the background and inked the edges ( cant help myself !  ) then  I used the new cork self adhesive sheets and cut out the letters for FALL !  So how easy is that too ? Just stick them letters on the tag and you are ready to go ! I also added a little brad on the bottom , you could use a button or anything that you find in your stash pile !
I layered some silk leaves in the jar , set the timer on my candle and it is all done !
Hope you have a fabulous and creative day !!
Eunice

 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.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
