During the month of July Altered Pages is partnering with Leaky Shed. Today I am sharing a scrapbook page. Scrapbooking was one of my first loves, that is  until I started working with Steampunk jewelry and collages.  

"Time To Fly Away My Love"

This page has a little story! Here we have two birds that have been very much in love.  One of the birds is about to escape from the bird cage and take flight. Kissing his partner he softly whispers, "Time to fly away my love."  

The Leaky Shed birdcage is decorated with glitter pens. Attached with adhesive dots on the Leaky Shed game spinner are little alpha beads spelling "Fly Away". 

The flowers are colored with Metalic Rub-ons, self adhesive Glitz Rhinestones are the centers. Fluttering from the flowers are butterflies in flight,  fussy cut from a Butterfy Collage Sheet.  The base page has clocks on it signifying time is flying."

 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.
