Trying a new technique....

Hi Everyone,

The current topic on the Paperarsty blog is all about image transfers. You can check out all the projects on their blog by clicking HERE.

I have never, ever attempted an image transfer before so this was all new to me....I decided to go with a gel media transfer technique after finding a lovely image of some flowers in a magazine.

I did not expect it to work on my first attempt so was pretty surprised when I ended up with this (I also had very sore fingers!):

So then I needed to decide what to do with turned it into a journal page. The first step was to add some colour to the page, I used Fresco paints in Chalk, Elephant and Slate:

I added some background stamping using second generation ink with some Finnabair texture stamps and also the number stamp from the new Paperartsy Everything Art stamp set.

Then I stamped the other images in purple and green versafine - these are from an Inkylicious stamp set:

The sentiment is from a Lin Brown set, stamped in black archival - I also stamped the word Hydrangea.

Finally I edged the page with Little Black Dress Fresco paint.


Was quite fun, I think I will try image transferring again :-)
