Slipping Through My Fingers...

It seems like just yesterday my daughter was born and now, just a short time later, she is turning 7 today. Where did the time go? I started this mixed media page with her in mind. The colors are representative of the two of us and just happened to tie in with the collage page 1662D A Visit to the Dollhouse.
In addition to the above collage page I used Punchinella, Crafters Workshop Stencil, Maya Road Pearl Mist from the store. Additional supplies included Watercolor Paper, Acrylic Paint, Distress Inkpad and Reinker, Want2Scrap Bling and Buttons Galore Buttons.

Lyrics to the ABBA song Slipping Through My Fingers are printed on tissue and Mod Podged to the page allowing the textures of the background stenciling to show through.

Happy Birthday Fancy Pants!
I hope you enjoy my Mixed Media Page! Thank you for looking~leslierahye

 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.
