Fun transfer

I learned how to do this fun transfer from Kate at Absolutely Everything…here’s how to do it:

You will need a sheet of Claudine Hellmuth’s Sticky-back canvas and a piece of scrapbook paper with an image you want to transfer: (no words though as they will be backwards).  Peel off the backing from the sticky- back canvas and place it sticky side up on your work area.  Place the image you want to transfer, image side down onto the sticky surface.  Now, burnish, burnish, burnish…rub the back of the image with either a bone folder, a popsicle stick or whatever you have to make a complete contact between the sticky-back canvas and the paper.  Next you will want to wet the surface of the paper and start rubbing off the paper with your finger.  I used a Ranger Mini Mister and kept spraying and rubbing until all the paper was off and the image was revealed!  The Coney Island scene I did on the natural canvas, the  car image was done on the white canvas.  I will probably pull off some of the canvas threads and “fringe” the edges of the image.

You can get the Sticky-back canvas at either Absolutely Everything or at Ink About It in Westford…give it a try!
