Last minute New Year Wishes

As we end the year here at Altered Pages we end our month with lace.  Lace is so versatile it comes in many colors, but in my stash of lace most of it is white.  White lace can be died to colors that match any project you are working on.  Today I am sharing half of the tags I made today, see more tags on New Years Day!

The New Years tags were created on the back of the Classic Post Card Tags!

Each tag was sprayed with two Mists - Brown and Red or Green. The tags curled and when they died they would flatten.

 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.
