Loving all the Altered Pages Goodness!

Hi Everyone!  It's Danie here, and I am one happy girl this week as my Altered Pages Order arrived and I have been having lots of fun playing with all the wonderful goodies.   Some of the items I ordered were the Glitz French Kiss 6 x 6 Paper Pad  and the French Kiss What Not's.

As the packaging says the What Not's are the perfect finishing touch to add to any project and I have found that combined with the papers which they coordinate with so beautifully they are perfect for making a card when time is short.  A couple of matted layers, inked with some Walnut Paris Trunk Ink (also in my order),  a bit of lace and a few extras from my stash, in no time come together to create a beautiful vintage card suitable for a number of occasions/greetings!

I will definitely be ordering more of these wonderful products from the Glitz Range, to keep on hand for when time is short and I can't wait to play with some of their coordinating stamp range also.

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

 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
