Meet Our New Design Team Member: Jessica Madaglia

We are excited and honored to have
Jessica Madaglia
Join the Altered Pages Design Team

Please help us welcome her!!! 

I have been papercrafting for over 20 years(it was rather scary to type that number in there)!  I have a blog that I call Two Mad Dahlias  My mother and I love to craft together and it's a bit of a play on our last name.  

I work as a full time retail manager and when I am not working I can be found hanging out with my husband and daughter.  In addition to being a crafter I am also an avid reader.
I have a few pictures of some projects I have created.  I love to alter items using various papers and findings.  I like to mix new and vintage items.  

When did you realize you might have a real desire or talent for creating Art?  I have been crafting in some form or fashion for many years. I started my blog a couple years ago to start to share what I do.  

How has your paper crafting evolved over the years? I started scrapbooking after I went to Europe when I was 16. After that I started rubber stamping. I love to take classes and peruse Pinterest and blogs for inspiration. I have let my humor show more in my work over the years.

What is your favorite medium for creating?
Paper. I love paper. Some might say I have too much paper. I disagree with them!

If you had to use only one color in your art what would that color be?  Oh, that's tough. My favorite color is purple. That's a tough color to craft with all the time. It might have to be brown. There are so many shades and it can work for all seasons. It can age and distress. It can enhance. Brown is pretty awesome. 

That the post for today!

 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.
