Rare Redux


The layout in the previous post has been haunting me. I wish I'd been wearing something blue. The red sticks out like a sore thumb, so I had to bring in some touches of red to make it look like it belonged. I also used some pearl fabric paint, to make the scrolls. They're on transparency, super easy to do. The butterflys are punched out of paper, then a stamp on transparency, folded, and hit with a heat gun to set.

This is another page for my Art Journal. It's my first gel medium transfer. I wish it had come out a little darker, and the photo makes it disappear even more. It was fun though, and you can bet I'll be doing more of the technique. Practice makes better. ;)

The image I transferred is of two people riding a winged horse. If you'd like to see the original image I used, it's the second image in this post Karen, at The Graphics Fairy, has tons of amazing images to share!!

Have a great weekend!

P.S. If you wouldn't mind letting me know, do you see the Blogger icon in your address bar, or little Belle?  And what browser are you using. Thanks a mill!

If you pat Belle,
she'll take you to the Home Page.

Right, firstly you won the fabric postcard on my birthday blog giveaway!!! So please email me your postal address and I'll mail it to you.
Second, if you apply a little mineral oil (veg. or baby), to the surface of the image transfer, it reduces the amount of "white paper" stuff to be see. Varish and gel medium over the top just makes it worse, but the oil really helps!! =)

These are beautiful! I really admire the creative work people do in their art journals. I tried doiing one myself but just couldn't get the hang out of it.I guess I'm just doomed to draw:P
