PaperArtsy blog challenge #4 : image transfers
Similarly to the last PA blog challenge I’ve never tried image transfers before so I was so excited when my first attempt actually worked!!!!
The technique I used was (approx. 8) layers of mod podge over the image in alternating vertical and horizontal application, soak in water and then rub the paper off to reveal the transferred image.
For the rest of the page I brayered different shades of PaperArtsy Fresco finish paints (cheesecake, guacamole, tinned peas and Hyde park), where the paper had warped from the previous page this created a really cool texture.
Then I sprayed dylusions fresh lime and the paint acted as a resist.
I then lightened off an area where my image transfer was going to be with the lighter shades of paint, and stick my image transfer down.
Next I took a hand made stamp and Hyde park PA paint and stamped leaves around the transfer.
Finished the project off with a washi tape boarder and a quote.
