This has been a fab week! Lots of happy news soon..... First heres my Inspiration Wednesday from last week. I followed what Donna did pretty close cus i loved the page and wanted to try the techniques. Journaling is random on this one but it was what i was feeling last night. I must say this is the happiest ive ever been with my hand writing. Practicing must be helping :) Maybe one day i wont be complaining about my hand writing all the time lol! I will defiantly be doing more transfers in the near future! The messy unpredictableness of the images make me happy and they add subtle interest to the back ground that leaves u wondering what the pic actually is.
Lessons Learned: Ink jet transfers only work with golden gel medium not liqutex FOR ME. My transfers ran when i added paint to them. Next time ill use the workable fixative i bought to stop this. I did use the fixative over the Ink writing so i could splatter paint at will. This worked well. The fixative is very strong smelling. I might have gotten a slight buzz from spraying it on while bending over it in an unventilated garage (oops) I also figured out that if i slow down my handwriting isnt that bad (big surprise there) The turquoise iron ons turned purpleish with pink paint running over it SCORE!!!! This was the first time i used the iron ons and i super love them. They are really easy to use if your patient. They add texture that really screams touch me!!!!
Supplies: Journal with 140 lb water color paper white craft paint ink jet printed photos- i figured out how to invert the photo so the words come out right on the transfer! dr martians india ink nib pen iron ons quinacridone magenta caran d'ache neocolors 2 in turquoise, magenta, and steel grey water pen Golden matt gel Medium Krylon workable Fixative You can buy all of the supplies HERE
