a lil' bit of seam binding
Wink of Stella (because the faeries wanted sparkly wings, of course--even if you can't see it here, they know it's there!!)

Thank you for stopping by today, and thank you Faerie Song for partnering with Altered Pages this month.



  1. What a lovely trio of faerie magic you've created, Trish! Love the colors - and the stamps are just beautiful. I especially like the way it looks on the music print.
    Delightful, fanciful work. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. Thank you, Tristan! That bit with the music is why the seam binding came into play. The music part wasn't quite big enough for the atc size, and it needed a little something to balance things out. :)

  3. Soft and lovely, seeing them actually made me relax! Colors are soothing and teh addition of the seam binding is perfect. THANKS

  4. Great trio of ATC's- love the pink backgrounds and the cute fairy images.

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 above used th…
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.
