Spring Shadow Box

 When the weather is sunny and warm here in the south the urge to plant bulbs and flowers is strong. Everyone is outside. When I can't get outside I like to make art. This shadow box is something I created for Easter/Spring .
 I used a great mix of robin's Nest and Altered Pages products .Collage sheet,cut paper flowers from paper pads, ribbon. Rub on's and a cute butterfly from Robins Nest. I added in the banner and the "Robin's nest"..
Happy creating!

 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.
