EMERALD CREEK Embossing Powders

Do you use embossing powders? One of my favorite embossing powder "tricks" is to use clear powder make something appear encased in glass. That's what I did here, to make a prettyChristmas ornament. Emerald Creek has a huge selection of powders to choose from; I used a shiny wintery silver around the edges.

First, I cut down a heavy ATC blank, and gave it a little ink/stamping, and fussy cut some angels from the Snow Angels collage page.

Next, I glued down the angels and added jewelry findings in each end of the ornament.  A couple of layers of clear embossing powder were applied on each side, and silver around the edges.

A crystal charm was attached in the bottom loop, and a piece of sparkly tulle in the top to hang with and voila!  A pretty little Christmas ornament!  Guess what?  Emerald Creek also has charms and lots of them.  Check back all month for more powdery inspiration with Altered Pages and Emerald Creek.

 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.
