Fairy Babies

Hi everyone! It's me Tonya and I am here to share my Pocket Letter which is my very first one I created. I used a variety of printables, Graphic 45 and Glitz cardstock to create this fun page.


I love the saying from the Pocket Quotes 2365. I dolled them up with bits of cardstock and butterfly punches.


I also used the following printables: Tinted BabiesTea Party Flowers and Fairy Wings. There was a lot of fussy cutting but in the end I think everything turned out adorable.


I also inked edges of the cards, printed the fly, cherish and inspire sentiments from the computer and added sequins and flat back pearls to finish off the cards.


After looking at my page I decided it still needed something else so I added a banner. I punched tiny holes on either side of the Pocket Letter sleeve and threaded the twine in the holes and tied off.



Since this is for the Pocket Letter Pals and Altered Pages Swap I have contacted my swap partner, packaged it up nice and pretty and got it in the mail quickly. 


Also I  did added some goodies for my partner to enjoy in her next project. :-)
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.




Supplies Used:
Other Supplies: 
Ribbon, Lace, Sequins, Chalk Ink, Flatback Pearls, Twine

 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.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
