a few of my favorite things

We all have our favorite things, right?  Here are just a few of the supplies
I find myself reaching for frequently, some of my very favorite things you'll
find at Altered Pages:

Gotta have 'em.  They're real, not reprodutions, a nice weight, have some
great texture, and a wonderful patina.  Perfect for any travel themed project,
and good grief, only $1.00 a package!

Lots of variety in styles, size, colors, etc-- I've used up several packs of these,
as they are perfect for making the mini tag books I enjoy creating.  Well, if you're
going to use tags, you know they need embellishing, and my favorites for making
that happen are

While it may not look like much by itself, it is PERFECT for adding embellishment
to a single tag, or for connecting several tags together.  Add beads, ribbon, lace,
bits of sequins waste, or even tiny shells, like in the Summer By the Sea book.

Finally , I'll share with you one of my favorite Altered Pages collage sheet.  It seems
that no matter what, I can always find a use for these little charmers:

Seriously, I've used these images for every season, holiday, and project you can
imagine.  Yes, even Halloween--check out Little Billy:

Have a favorite-filled weekend, 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.
