Love is in the Air and My Art Journal

Hi Everyone!  Danie here with you today sharing a snippet of a page I have been playing at in my Art Journal.  Do you ever have those days where you start with an idea and you run with it only to be lead elsewhere.  That's what pretty much happened with the this page.

I started with some Vintage Text Pages and Glitz Papers which I had used last week to make a Valentine's Day Card with along two Chipboard Scroll Corners all Altered Pages Products and my Faber Castell Gelatos in two colors.   I covered the Scroll Corners with the Rose Paper and wanted to use them to frame my stamped LOVE which is from the Glitz Love Games Clear Stamp Set also from Altered Pages.  I was sort of going for something a little Shabby Chic/Romantic which is totally not my usual style.

Some Vintage Lace, Pearl Dew Drops, Roses from my stash and some further stamping embellish this page further along with a few hand drawn hearts and some basic faux stitching. I now just have to add a photo of me and hubby and a few words about Love and what it means to me!  It's kind of fitting as we approach February that I created something about love not just because of Valentine's Day but it was also the Month that my hubby and I first met some 20 plus years ago!.

 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.
