  1. Great Collage! Love the layers, use of stencils and combination of Robin's Nest and Altered Pages products.

  2. April, this is simply superb. Your ability with color and composition is wonderful. THANKS for sharing it with us.

  3. I like the Technic April used on the background! I am going to try it and hope I don't end up with a pile of paper scraps!

  4. I'm always up for learning new ways of using various techniques! Thanks for sharing your process!

 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.
