IMAGINE Crafts Vertigo Flowers!

This is the last post for the month of June.  The Altered Pages Design Team would like to THANK IMAGE Crafts for the great products, to John Creighton Peterson and all the Artists in Residence at IMAGINE Crafts for their wonderful projects... this has been a FANTASTIC PARTNERSHIP!  

Now to share my final project! VERTIGO FLOWERS!

First, rub IMAGINE Crafts/Tuskineko: StazOn midi - Orange Zest, Gothic Purple and St. Valentine onto both sides of the sheet of white Vertigo.  Gently heat set.   
Cut the flowers from the inked sheet of Vertigo. (Vertigo is a flexible plastic product that can be cut with scissors or a die cut.) Don't worry about being perfect.  Once the flowers are finished you won't be able to tell you cut one petal larger than another. 

Carefully heat the Vertigo flower with a heat gun, bending the petals of each flower. CAUTION: the Vertigo will get HOT!

Several sizes were cut (six, four and two petals). The smaller ones will be used to create the inside petals.

Glue the centers in the main flower, add Stickles to create the center. Paint Wink of Stella on the petal edges for a little sparkle!

I used three of the flowers to create gift tags.  Using manila tags, inked with IMAGINE Crafts/Tuskineko: StazOn midi - Orange Zest, Gothic Purple, St. Valentine and iRESISTalbe Texture Spray - Bronze.

Add ribbons and Washi Tape and you have great tags to dress up any package or gift bag!

 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.
