Special Ornaments for the Tree

I hope you have enjoyed all the wonderful projects from the Altered Pages Design Team this month!  We have had a great time using Altered Pages products with our partner Craft Attitude!  
 
 
One more Christmas project...
PAPER DOLL ORNAMENTS!!! 
 
 
To make double sided ornaments, print a page of Altered Pages Christmas Paper Dolls 1864 on copier paper and a sheet of Craft Attitude™. 
 
 
Adhere the paper dolls on the copier paper to thin chipboard.  The chipboard about as thick as a cereal box is perfect.  Fussy cut the chipboard, then adhere the Craft Attitude™ copy of each paper doll to the back side of the chipboard.

 
Add twine to hang them from the tree!
 
 
For the outfits with hats attach them with twine.


Add Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle!!
 
Remember all collage sheets can be purchased digitally or printed.  Digitally will be emailed to you and you will be able to print them yourself.  Printed copies will be mailed to you.
 
Supplies:

 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
