Altered Pages is honored to share with you the
TALENTED
CINDY KOVACK

Cindy is a mixed media artist living in Phoenix, AZ.  She’s had a passion to create from childhood. Coming from a large, economically challenged household, she lacked funds for her creative projects. She’d hike to the local dump and salvage reclaimed parts and pieces for her art.  She’s a self-taught artist who learned to paint with house paint and model airplane brushes. She has since fused her love of paint, collage and upcycling into a way of life. Shortly after her late husband’s death, she found she was able to channel her grief into her art. To this day she uses her creativity as a form of meditation. Cindy is a published artist who has taught painting, drawing and varied mixed media techniques throughout her career at seminars, educational facilities, galleries, local shops and retreats.

 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.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
