I have been in image transfer fever lately. I just can't stop experimenting right after I got Liquitex Medium Gel, found at the Paint Supplies section at Michael's.
You probably have seen a number of image transfer tutorials. So far, this has been my favorite medium. It is very very easy, cheap and most effective!
* I used my photo of our tour in Paris kissing the Eiffel Tower and editted it into a silhouette. I thought it would be fun to put a caption under it that says "I Kissed the Eiffel Tower". I mirror printed the image and the text using laserjet printer. I used ordinary white paper and learned I don't have to use wax paper
* Then I cut-out the image as close to the edges as I could. I put the image face down and traced it's shape to use as guide where to brush in the medium gel.
* Then I finally brushed the medium gel on to the fabric with the traced shape of the image.
* I pasted the printed image ink-face-down, flattened it and make sure it sticks real good.
*Then I wait till it dries. I more wait, the better.
* When dried, sprinkle the paper with water and rub-off the paper. It's gonna all come-off.
*You could seal the image with modgepodge if you like.
*I lined the top and bottom of the tote bag with lace using Beacon fabric glue.
Since I couldn't find souvenir tote bag in Paris of my liking, I just made my own :)
