Let's Do Lunch!

Over the weekend I was lucky enough to hit an auction and win a box of old compacts...  I knew exactly what I was going to do with at least one of them as soon as I won them.

Let's Do Lunch....

I instantly fell in love with the "Ladies Who Lunch" collage sheet when I first saw it.  I knew I had to create some sort of collage using them.  They were just too cool not to.  Anyway, I thought they would fit in perfectly with the classy old compact.  The background is one of the images from the sheet - "New York". 

I also used a bit of sepia ink around the edges of each image; Brown Glass Glitter; Glitz Trims and a few of my own vintage buttons and alpha beads.

For complete information on how I made this collage feel free to check out this collage ~ Let's Do Lunch.

I am loving altering things currently so when replying to your comment you left ( and you have a lot of blogs to choose from, it is easier in that case to leave your WOYWW # so others can find you ) BUT I saw the AB site and came over here, will cruise around your blog a bit! It doesn't bother me that I didn't find your WOYWW post, I am happy here :) waving hi from the windy hills of North Carolina #50

 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.
