Home Tweet Home Canvas

Hi everyone it's Danie here today!

Partnering with the Leaky Shed this month has been lots of fun and I really love the quality of their chipboard.  For my project today I am using their Jack and Cat Bird Piece.  

Everything else that I have used to create this canvas is available from Altered Pages.

Leaky Shed Studio Supplies:
Jack and Cat Bird Chipboard Piece
Altered Pages Supplies:
4 x 6 Canvas Board, Gesso, Splash Inks, Glitz and Bazzill Papers, Big Brush Stamper Pens
Staz On Inks - Emerald Green, Cactus Green, Hawaiian Blue, Gold Leaf, Dylusions Around the Edge Stamps, Burlap, Collage Sheets Off Cuts which included Vintage Bird Eggs and Nests and Butterflies, Music Ribbon and Green Seam Binding, Red Felt Flower, Robin's Nest Dew Drops,

For people home is wherever they lay their hat.  For birds I guess it is wherever they lay their eggs.  Hence my title 'Home Tweet Home'. The Green Seam Binding resting behind the red flower allows for this to be hung on the wall whilst the tree branch and die cut paper towel flowers are simply photographic props.

 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.
