Kristi Parker Feature Artist

 Altered Pages is honored to have
Kristi Parker
Missouri USA
join us today.
We hope you will join us in welcoming her! 

When did you realize you might have a real desire or talent for creating Art? I have always loved art and color. . I really got excited when, at age 12, I got my first rubber stamp. It was PSX carousel horse. I enjoyed art class from elementary to high school. As I have gotten older my passion for creating has just gotten stronger.

What was your first art project? One of my first real projects was a stipple drawing of a saxophone. I wish I would have had the education on different pens that I have now. After the passage of time the inks have faded or not in areas, but am still so proud of that piece. My parents had it up in their home for years.

What is your favorite medium for creating? I have a real addiction to resin. Anything that sparkles and shines is also great. I really have a difficult time choosing any one as a favorite. There is a place for all of them.

Have you ever sold a piece of your Art? If so, where? I have sold a few pieces of my jewelry but the piece I am most proud of was purchased by a company for display at CHA 2015. The company had it as a focal piece for their booth and I was so honored.

Significant Pets or People in your life? My children are my biggest blessings. They are so talented in their own rights. I also have a sweet puppy that gives me so much joy. I am blessed with wonderful family and supportive friends.

 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.
