Another 2016 milestone!

Here we are at another milestone in 2016... Daylight Savings!  Time sure flies... it seems like yesterday we set the clocks back... If you live in the United States (not Hawaii or Arizona) today is the day we change our clocks forward an hour.  For dates around the world check out this site, Daylight Savings Around the World.
Talking about time, we have a wonderful Mailbox Muse Time stamp set!
Here is an ATC using a time stamp with CASTLES of all AGES collage image!
Before starting cut the castle image from the Altered Pages Castles of the Ages Collage Sheet.
Golden Opulence sticker

Use Chalk Paint - Timeless on the  Echo Art Board, then apply a thin layer of Gel MediumLay the image of the castle on the ATC and burnish it carefully.   

Apply a thin layer of Gel Medium over the image, with Chalk Paint - Timeless lightly go around the edges of the image to frame it.  Add a  Golden Opulence sticker to the upper left corner.  Adhere dew drops to lower right.

While the Gel Medium is still sticky add bits of  Gold Leaf.  Note: once I opened my package of Gold Leaf I keep it in a plastic container... it is almost impossible to get it back in the package and makes it easier to use.

Let the Gel Medium dry.  When dry stamp theMailbox Muse Stamp - Watch from ATC set with Black Ink.

Edge the Echo Art Board with Black Ink!  Let dry over night before mailing.

 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.
