Day Dreaming of LOVE!

Francine here, I am really excited to join the Altered Pages Design Team.

"Day Dreaming of Love" Canvas 

To create the canvas, crumble the two pieces of tissue paper and adhere them with Gel Medium, let dry.  Add lettering and images from Altered Pages Collage Sheet Really Red.  Cut red doily in half and attach to the canvas.  Embellish the doily with paper rose and specimen bottle (with a love letter inside). Attach "Call Again" image from the red collage sheet with pop dots for added dimension.  Finish the canvas with German Foil and a few more roses.

Tissue Papers - Plain Red Tissue  and  Images on White Tissue
Pop Dots

 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.
