Cowgirls Carrying On - Blog Hop

Altered Pages is excited to be joining forces with Bombshell Stamps today to bring you our very first 'Two for Tuesday Blog Hops'.


At Altered Pages we HOPE to Alter YOUR Creativity so join us in the adventure! Find Collages, inks, papers, art tools, doo-dads, paints, gelatos,  embellishments and so much more at ALTEREDPAGES.COM.   Our Design Team will take you to new levels of inspiration with projects and Kits available for purchase.
Bombshell Stamps is known for a wide variety of Vintage Tattoo stamps ranging from pin-ups to nautical themed, to western, to Asian themed designs. Many of these are perfect for cards and projects for the men in our lives!
The popularity of Copic markers and mixed media makes Bombshell's open-line images even more appealing as they feature mostly open-line images that are fun to color.   Each set comes with one or two focal images, smaller images, icons, and sentiments.
All Bombshell's rubber stamps are deeply etched rubber and are available as mounted or unmounted sets.

 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.

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
