Playing Dead

This Day of the Dead project 
took a while but it was so much fun.

Sabor papers were used as a base and The Crafters Workshop 
Floating City by Art by Marlene piece I did earlier this month was the backdrop for some photos.

                 Welcome Good Friends Celebrate
Each of the Sabor 12 x 12 sheets was cut and used as individual cards.  Embellishing them was so very much fun.   I used AlteredPages collage sheets and created words that were printed and cut out.  One of those times to grab all the stuff you may have in drawers or bins.  Fibers, buttons, washi tape, gems all have some room on these festive cards! I have my favorites, but choose which are your favorites and say so in the comments below!  
I used both glue and double-sided tape to assemble the pieces, always doing a layout BEFORE gluing!

Dance of Death


We are close to finishing our month with The Crafters Workshop and I have the BEST opinion of their products, their people, and their artistic ethics!  
Thank YOU for working with us, Jaime Echt, Cheryl Boglioli and the entire TCW Design Team.  It has been a privilege and a pleasure!

 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.
