Shiny Gnomes--an atc pop-up book.

Yes, I'm a little pop-up crazy lately--but do you blame me?  They're so much fun!  Today I've got an atc sized pop-up book, full up of gnomes, stamped all over with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Radiant Neon Inks, the words stamped with some rich Memento Luxe, and the whole thing shined up with a good spray of Shimmer Spritz:
2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches

Hey there, little buddy!
You can find the gnomes at Altered Pages on the Gnomes And Trolls Page (just click the link!).

Those Radiant Neons really pop . . . ;)
It makes me a little banananuts when you can't see the shimmer in the photographs.  So much so, I made you a little video:

(Well, it shows up better if you can make the video bigger . . . but if you make it full screen, it pixillates.  Looks like I'm back to banananuts!!)
THANK you to IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko

 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.

Get on Over!
