Christmas Shadow Box

Hi Everyone!  It's Danie here today, I wanted to start my post today by saying that our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been personally effected by the recent events in Connecticut. It was only as I came onto the computer to do this post that I read the horrible news. Our sympathies and deepest condolences go out to all the families who have lost their love ones in this massacre.

For this reason I will keep my post very short. I have been working on a Christmas Shadow Box to house a selection of small Christmas ornaments. I have once again used the vintage papers from the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 8 x 8 Paper Pad. I haven't finished embellishing it fully, but I thought I would share it with you and you would get the idea.. This Compartment Shadow Boxes with lids is available from Altered Pages and they are a wonderful way to display those special trinkets or use as a storage box for all your crafty bits and bobs.

 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.
