International Fairy Day Blog Hop with Leslierahye

Altered Pages Design Team member Leslierahye is hosting an International Fairy Day Blog Hop! We have several fairy collage sheets in out collection that are perfect for the  day.
For this special occasion I have created a couple of "button fairies" using the Altered Pages Collage Sheet called "Fairy Dolls".  I have combined buttons, gears and other metal findings to create the fairies.  

To make them wire together layers of buttons and gears to create the "tail".  Adhere image to a thin piece of chipboard, fussy cut the image and glue to the top button.  Add wings and gem to head piece.

Supplies:
Buttons
Gears and metal pieces
Foil Wings
Wire 
Seed Beads
Gem/pearl
Quick Dry Glue

Button Fairies would make great embellishments on layouts, cards or gifts! Have fun making them you are only limited by your imagination!

Altered Pages has a monthly themed challenge, please join the design team and create a card or altered item and link it up... check HERE for details!

Hope you are enjoying the hop!!! Go over to the next blog and see more amazing fairies!

 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
