Follow Your Dreams Altered Page Pocket

I have been enjoying creating altered books recently and started working on one centered around following your dreams.  I created this pocket to add to one of the pages of the book.  Altered Pages carries so many things that fit perfectly into this theme that it made it easy to create this.  I started by choosing one of the library cards and pockets and adding some of the French Kiss patterned paper by Glitz to cover the tag and pocket. I placed the saying by Henry David Thoreau from the What-Nots Embellishment Collection by Glitz on the tag a little off center and snipped off the edges that overhung it and inked the edges.  I placed 2 French Vanilla Flowers on it and tied 2 pieces of embroidery floss in bows to create the flower centers.  I included the ticket, banner and word "dream" to it and the finished it off by adding a couple of pictures from the Train Travel Days (ap2165) Collage Sheet to the pocket.  It makes the perfect beginning page to my altered book.  Now just to finish the others, but that should be easy with the great items that Altered Pages carries!

 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.
