Enjoying wine...Just for Fun!

The hustle and bustle of Christmas is now behind us but we hope to keep the spirit of the season with us.  And now New Year's Day is right around the corner.  I enjoy New Year's because it's very festive and like a giant party.  And what do we toast in the new year with?  Wine!  Oh sure, you could drink champagne, but I prefer a nice sweet wine.  And what could be sweeter than this adorable little flower from Just For Fun rubber stamps?  It's part of a trio of flowers, but I cut them apart to make separate blooms.  I stamped one of them with wine colored ink on a Glitz scrapbook paper.  I used a permanent fine point marker to hand-draw the flower into a wine glass!  Then I chose several images from two Altered Pages collages and some German scrap to make this card.

I had to sponge some tan ink onto the paper in the background so that the wine glass would show up better.  It kept the polka dots from blending together.  And what doesn't show in either of these pictures is that a clear Zig Wink of Stella marker was used on all of the fruit in the images.

So, my friends, I wish you all a Very Happy New Year!  Cheers!!

 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.
