Thank you all for being a part of this fantastic hop with us! We have a week left and we can't wait to see the rest of the creations from everyone! As a sponsor of the hop, has a daily give-away of a collage sheet. We will award all collage sheets at the end of the hop once we have received complete notification from Smeared and Smudged!

Happy Day 25 from!! leslierahye here and I'm sharing with you  a Halloween greeting card made from a collage page that has some fantastic children's vintage greetings! I layered my digital collage image on G45 Steampunk Spells papers and then mounted on a background page that I had stamped a spiderweb onto. I added Robin's Nest Marquis Dew Drops and edged the layers with Black Ink! I hope you enjoy my card! Be sure to hop to the other stops!

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 above used th…
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.
