A Little Vintage Elf'n Magic

Hey everyone, Melodee here again. All I can say today is WOW! So much yummy goodness going on here this month I feeling like I have been stuffed with a Thanksgiving Art Feast!! LOL! So many talented design team members and talented patrons as well. Your Elves are so delicious and I am loving what all of you are creating for our November challenge.
Speaking of elves, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I bet it's even beginning to look a little like Christmas around your homes as well. I have been working on some new Christmas ornaments for my own tree this year and decided to create one more little elf ornament for you. I love victorian and vintage so with that in mind here is what I came up with

I created this little rendition of a vintage toy ornament using  some  spools, fibers, glitter, G45 paper and AP's Elves and Gnomes collage kit.

 A few bits and baubles from my personal stash of junk'n finds,  a little fussy cutting, embossing and glue and Wa La!  Can't wait to hang him on my studio tree!!

(This is the back side)
What fun it was to create for you all once again. I have included a list of supplies below. I hope you have enjoyed this little guy. I will be back in two weeks with more. Until then keep coming back daily for more wonderful designs from our very talented design team!! Oh if you get a chance, I would love for you to stop in and say hi over at my own blog

 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.
