and what became of those circles . . .

At least some of them. 

You may recall in my previous post that I wasn't quite sure what would become of some newly pulled prints, created using a 6 inch circle Gel Press plate (yum!!).  Some prints were pulled as singles, others were printed over larger, previous gel plate prints, like this one:
Well why not make those circles spotlight type frames for other images?

Showcasing text, as here:
You can see the circles repeated in the pink paint circles and the tiny pom pom trim lining the side.

Here, the circle spotlights a great Altered Pages collage image:

You may be saying right now, "Trisha, what's wrong with you, why don't you show the entire layout?"  The answer, my friend, is that these are just two little teaser peeks into the new, bird themed, 6x6 inch board book kit, "A Bird's Eye View."

The kit is full up of yummy patterned papers, so you don't even need to use prints from your stash, like I did, but it's always fun to add a personal touch to any creation.  I love all the bits and bobs that come with it, so many fun options right at your fingertips!
Happy Thursday, everyone!

 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.
