Tea with ALICE!

Altered Pages is playing along with Unruly PaperArts this month. 
 The monthly theme at Unrly PaperArts is Teacups an Tiaras!
Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite subjects... 

when I think of tea I see ALICE!
Paint the Leaky Shed Teacup and Crown with gesso, dry, then paint teacup with Silk Pink Grapefruit and dry, trim with German Scrap. Paint crown with Golden Iridescent Gold, top with Robbin's Nest Dew Drops.

Distress edges of envelope with Brown and Black ink.  Adhere doily edge doily with Wink of Stella - Silver. Layer the Mad Hatter Party image from the Alice in Wonderland Collage Sheet.

Adhere Alice and Queen to thin chipboard and fussy cut to give a little dimension.

 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.
