Mixin' It Up

I am hooked on the new Terri Sproul Mixers that Altered Pages now has in.  I have been finding so many ways to use them and the Crystal Lacquer.  This tag is just one example of what I've done.  I began by painting one of the tags from Altered Pages with the blue Mixer after masking off some sections.  Once I painted the sections between the tape, I let them dry a little and removed the tape and painted the rest of the area.  This created the textured look.  While it was drying I cut out the woman from the Think Pink Collage Sheet and had it ready to adhere onto the tag once it had dried.  I printed a second copy of the collage sheet and ran it through my die cut machine using the Art Cap Die and glued it into the bottle cap.  I, then, poured some of the clear lacquer onto it and let it dry.  I tied the ribbon through the hole and I assembled the pieces onto the tag making sure to line the woman's head up with the body on the first piece and added the brad to the flower and placed it on for the finishing touch.

 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.
