This week I spent time watching a few USArtQuest videos.  Susan Pickering Rothamel is an amazing artist with so many ideas and wonderful products.  In one video she sandwiched an image between layers of a mica tile.  I decided to give it a try, I am really happy with the results.

I used an Altered Pages Collage image of the Eiffel Tower.

USArtQuest Duo
USArtQuest PPA
USArtQuest Mica D'lights
USArtQuest Mica Flakes
USArtQuest Prills
USArtQuest Specialty Paper

Split a Mica Tile, adhere collage image with USArtQuest PPA.

Use USArtQuest Duo in a few spots around the image to attach USArtQuest Mica Flakes, and then add a little more USArtQuest Duo to attach USArtQuest Mica Delights.

Adhere specialty handmade papers, green paper to cream with USArtQuest PPA , then with USArtQuest Duo to attach USArtQuest Mica Delights and USArtQuest Prills to the papers.

Attach the Mica Tile to the papers with USArtQuest PPA.  I LOVE all the textures! 

Adhere to a card base with USArtQuest PPA

 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.
