  1. Nice art, everyone! I like Sylvia's idea of using the Paris plate whole! Cool effect.

  2. All three of these pieces are inspiration! As Robin said, using the whole Paris stamp on Silvia's card was genius and making me rethink cutting up my stamps - I may have to start buying two! :)

    Debbie's use of a zipper on her piece was very clever - I'd quit ripping notions from old, worn-out clothes years ago after I'd stopped sewing. Now I think I'll be resuming that habit.

    And the pendant! I'm a sucker for mixed media jewelry and just LOVE this - I had no idea that metal would "take" inks other than alcohol inks, but now that I know I just need to use GlazOn between layers... that opens up another door of options.

    This month's partnership with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko has been so much fun so far. Thanks AP for this event!

    1. Thanks for your encouraging words! The Artists love to hear great input!

  3. Beautiful art pieces! Fabulous card, outstanding canvas-the zipper is superb, and the pendant is a treasure.

  4. Gorgeous projects each in their own way!!! Love how quick and simple the card is yet beautiful. I want to steal the zipper idea and use it on one of my own projects. I've never tried to make a pendant but now I want to try my hand at that too!!! Outstanding job!!!

  5. Really beautiful projects. Enjoyed learning new things from these talented artists!

  6. The diversity is so incredible, love each style and project. The Land of Nod is precious, the Paris is sophisticated and the pendant should be in my jewelry cabinet!!! THANKS!!!

  7. Awesome creations everyone! The Paris card is so dreamy, the image on the land of nod card is darling and of course the pendant is beautiful! Thanks for sharing your creations with us!

  8. I love the projects especially the one with the zipper... I was wondering how I would incorporate a zipper on a card.. Thanks so much for the inspiration. Amazing work.!!

  9. 3 fabulous projects, I am really loving the Parisian themed Card! Thanks so much for joining us and sharing your wonderful work with us at Altered Pages today!

  10. What lovely inspiration! I always love seeing John's work and this fabulous pendent is no exception! Debbie's card is so cool and full of fun eye candy and Sylvia's card is equally wonderful while being completely different with its more clean look. thanks for all the great ideas and neat creations to look at today!

  11. I've just discovered Altered Pages recently. What a treasure trove of inspiration and instruction!

  12. The colors in these projects were well selected. Thank you ladies

 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.
