I LOVE the seemly magical qualities of image transfers. I find it so sweet how you can paint a layer of medium, such as a acrylic paint,onto your canvas, lay a image; I put down a piece of my Susan K. Weckesser Inc. scrapbook paper, and after you let it dry the image transfers onto your canvas. See complete instructions from a previous blog post, on how to do a image transfer HERE. SO much FUN!
On this canvas, after I got all the excess paper off of it, I used some of Tim Holtz Distress Paint from Ranger Ink to color up my sides. I use a rag and really put some elbow grease into because I LOVE how I can get the Distress Paint into all the creases and cracks. It looks SUPER cool!!!!! When I was happy with my color, I took our some Liquid Pearls from Ranger Ink and I created a whimsical border . It was super easy and took no time at all to create a cute little canvas!
Hey, guess what!? My Live in Color paper is currently on sale for only 15 cents over at Want2Scrap!!!!! What a bargain!!! GO check it out!!!!!
