Pumpkins, Cats and Witches Hats

At Christmas everything is either Naughty or Nice but at Halloween things can be Spooky and Cute together which is exactly what all these vintage Collage Images from Altered Pages have in common today.  Along with Pumpkin's, Cats and Witches Hats.

I decided to use up some old post cards I had been hoarding as some Artist Trading Coin Bases.  I covered them with a thin coat of Gesso before painting the backs black and adding some purple and orange paint to the front.

Some of the wonderful collage sheets I cut the delightful images from were Halloween Children and Happy Halloween along with a few others.  If cute isn't your thing you will also find some more scary looking images in store also. 

One the paint of my backgrounds was dry I added some black stamping and then proceeded to add my images.  I added some wording to a couple also that was on one of the collage sheets. 

 I then took a white paint pen and dashed and scribbled around the outside of the coin and some of the image.

 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.
