Pretty in Purple - Cake photo holder

Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend.  It's HOT here in Arizona but I made a cake that won't melt, using a great little piece from Foundations Décor.

I started with these items. I have some acrylic colors in metallic and in matte but you can use whatever type of paint you like. Paper flowers, glitter glue, scrapbook paper, glue and wooden cake photo holder.

First I attached one side of the wooden piece to the opposite side of the paper I chose. I let the glue dry then cut around the piece.

I paint the rest of the wood a light purple matte acrylic and paint the "frosting" pieces with some metallic light colored acrylic.

I then painted the candle with a matte light green acrylic, the flame with the same metallic paint as the frosting and after that dried, I used glitter glue on the flame. I glue everything on the cake, add some pretty flowers and voila! Super easy, super quick and super CUTE!
Until next time!

 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.

Get on Over!
