  1. What a nice idea for a small house gift ... and I love the way those die cuts look with embossing on them - just like metal!

  2. This is why in my house you're called the Altered Pages Steampunk Queen.

  3. this is awesome. I just bought those gears and I hope mine will look as good as yours after embossing. I love this project. xo

  4. Absolutely fantastic! This is so inspired!

 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.
