Springtime Fairies atc

Hello Thursday and welcome AP blog followers!

  Time for my first post this month using our partner product-M-D Hobby&Craft -Aluminum Metal Sheets.

After cutting my sheet to size with tin snips, I  painted the metal with acrylic paint and covered the edges with craft tape.

 Next I  cut out a fairy and friend from AlteredPages collage sheet- Little Fairies-AP1554 . The graphic was fancy cut , then glued to black cardstock and the cutout again, leaving a bit of the black around the edges for dimension. Next I coated the fairy and friend with gloss varnish.

My next step was to color my AlteredPages Flower Trim from green to a matching blue.
Time to audition my pieces

  My finished Springtime Fairy atc!
I love how the sun shines through the metal sheet and creates that neat design on the table!

 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.
