Happy New Year

Hello Everyone and a Happy New Year to you.  It's Danie here today and if you are like me and haven't got round to sending out Good Wishes to your Family and Friends for 2014,  it's not to late and Altered Pages has lots of wonderful collages just perfect for you to do this.  One of my favorites is AP2057 Children's New Year.

My all time favorite image from this collage sheet is the one I used on this ATC which is one I made last year and sent to a friend.  

For my Project of 2014 I turned to the same Collage Sheet for a sweet image to add to my Tiny Tag Book (ATC Size) using papers from the Glitz Unchartered Waters Collection.  

I just love the patterns and colors of this paper collection from Glitz.

My book opens to a Quote Perfect for the Start of the New Year
Imagine it, Believe it, Achieve It and the sweet image from the Children's New Year Collage Sheet.

Inside of the book and on the tags I thought would make a wonderful place to record your wishes and dreams for 2014 like a mini journal and then you can keep it somewhere safe so you can look back throughout the year at what was written.  Another idea would be to fill them with lots of inspirational quotes as a gift for a Friend.

The New Year, is all about starting over and new Beginnings, my immediate wish for you to begin 2014 is to find some time for some creative play.  

Best Wishes for a Wonderful Year Ahead!

Danie xx

 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.
