All Tangled Up for the New Year...

for this project you will need
4×4" Chipboard Squares
Collage Sheets : Redoute II and Redoute III

1. Gesso each Chipboard Square and set aside to dry.
2. With a mister, spritz the colors of the Niji Pearlescent WC that you wish to use--I find that pre-moistening the colors give them a fuller coverage. If you prefer the more sheer look then simply add water with your brush on the dry cake. Apply this shiny watercolor to your surface however you desire...I love the look of brushed splotches--almost dry brushed--and then speckles of color flicked from an old toothbrush. Set aside to dry.
3. use a template to trace letters or freehand letters on floral collage papers and cut out. Adhere letters to individual tiles. I used the letters of my word of the year B L O O M.
4. With Micron pens doodle/Zentangle® around the letters. This is my favorite part.
5. Go around the edges of each tile with brown ink to cover the sides with a touch of ink.


  1. Gorgeous project!!! So many techniques in one neat finished package!

  2. I keep going back tot hese and am in awe of all th wrok that went into them, great job!

  3. I love this-I am gonna give this a try today! :) Thanks for sharing!

 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.
