Art Journal Page 197

Hi everyone!

Well I finally finished this journal page! What a mission! I was determined to make this image transfer thing work and I think I've achieved it. This page was based on the Tag #6 Challenge - Image Transfer technique. You can check out the full process video on YouTube by CLICKING HERE.

I started out using the same stamp set and paint colours for this page as I used on the tag. I also used book text to transfer using gel medium, which worked out pretty good I think.

Then the crap hit the fan, so to speak LOL. I tried transferring printed images - fail!

I tried transferring a glossy magazine image - fail! Until I worked out how to get it to look ok.

Having Fun With Shipping Tags No.6

Happy New Year everyone!

Let's start the new year off with a nice quick easy technique! Today I thought I'd try my hand at an image transfer.

So, I started off creating a journal page first, using this technique, made mistakes and learned how to actually do the image transfer correctly LOL.

I wanted to use monochromatic colours so used some brown shades on this tag. Only because I wanted to transfer some old book paper using the image transfer. What I ended up doing with this tag was just to do the background, no other embellishments, so that I didn't have any ideas stuck in my head when I go to do a journal page based on this technique. I'm going to just do the backgrounds only for the tags from now on.

Art Journal Page 195

Hi everyone!

Today's page has been created based on the Tag Challenge #5 from our Art Journal Techniques FaceBook group. We will be playing around with heat embossing today!

I have an awful time of it when I play around with sprays! Since they are reactive, anyt medium you put over the sprays will come through to the top, so using heat embossing can eliminate that 'headache' LOL. Having said that, it's a lot of work trying to keep that embossed area clean of sprays, but so worth the end result!
