During November the Altered Pages Design Team will be  partnering with Smeared Ink!  We will be using digital images from the Smeared Ink Steampunk Collection.  

Color Smeared Ink Bluebird Rider with Chameleon pens.   

 Create background on 83lb drawing paper using stencils and mists, set aside to dry.

Ink chipboard gears with black, heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Ink edges with Delicata Gold ink, heat emboss a second time with clear embossing powder.  

Cut the card base from the background created above.

 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.
