repurposed vintage frame--chalkboard and tile magnets with MD Hobby and Altered Pages

I love this vintage frame, and have been waiting for the right project to come along to use it--it's a great fit for a sheet of MD Hobby Chalkboard metal!  I love that it comes chalkboard ready, AND since it's metal, it can be used with magnets--so of course, I made a few new ones to go with it. 
Nothing fancy, just some collage-on-tiles, some of them only an inch, some an 1 1/2 inches, a couple a little larger . . . Altered Pages has pages and pages of mini images that are perfect for creating inchies and twinchies and trinchies, not to mention my absolute favorite Vintage Text packs, full of sheet music and maps and pages from old books.

Be sure to check back all this month for more creative inspiration incorporating the wonderful metal available from MD Hobby and Craft.

Happy Thursday!

Don't forget you can still join the Altered Pages  Mother's Day Link Up Party!

 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.
