They called it Puppy Love

Hi Everyone, Danie here with you today - creating doesn't always have to take a lot of time.  Recently I fell in love with some adorable puppies on the Dogs Collage Sheet from Altered Pages and decided to create a couple of quick ATC's.  I teamed these puppies up with some Patterned Papers from Authentique which displayed patterns and elements that followed my theme.

Because I was creating on a small scale, it didn't require too much in the way of papers.  Layering a mix of papers creates interest in the background and keeps it relatively flat to make it suitable for posting. This also means you could work with scraps from other projects if they suited your theme and keep other embellishments to a minimum or use none at all.

ATC's like this also make the perfect card topper or tag too!

If you are not a dog lover their are other animal collage sheets to choose from available in the Altered Pages Store such as Cats or Farm Animals and given that in the Northern Hemisphere you are coming into Spring Birds might be on the cards too!

And don't forget we are teaming up this month with US Artquest so be sure to pop back regularly to read about their products and see some great projects created using them.

 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.
