Here's the other Tutu covered in Prima flowers!
Its hard to photograph without a body being in it filling it out so the stretched satin is skin tight!
Never mind..... a little pillow stuffed inside has to do!!
I've so please to be able to show my published work in this fabulous magazine at long last. It is all written in Swedish, and I've got to say - it just doesnt matter - I get the gist mostly and the creations and scrapbookers inside are wonderful!!
One of my assignments was to do a photo transfer:
Here are the steps in English if you wish to try to transfer a photo directly onto paper:
PHOTO TRANSFER TUTORIAL
Tools and Materials:
Picture - laser print /photocopy or magazine picture.
Medium Gel glue
Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool with Felt
BEFORE YOU START:
Choose your picture. It is paramount that you use only a lazer printed image or photocopy that is not inkjet. Inkjet inks are not permanent and will run with glue and water with this technique. A solution would be to take a trip to your local photocopying shop. Photos with a plastic film cover are not ideal either. Magazine images work well. Its best to practice with a few different pieces first to familiarise yourself with this technique. It’s a bit messy, but a lot of fun!
Gather your Medium Gel Glue and paint brush
Cut out or tear around your image
Coat with the image face up with the medium gel evenly
While still wet, place image face down onto your choice of surface and press firmly across the back of the image evenly. Let dry.
Using the Tim Holtz applicator with felt attachment, dip in water and and dab on the back of image, not letting it get too wet.
With your finger (I find this best!!), gently roll over wet paper as it peels away. Take great care to be gentle. I usually leave it to dry often and come back to do another layer so not to disturb the glue underneath. To much friction and too much water will make holes in the toner and image.
THE FINISHED TRANSFER
If you notice, I did manage to make a couple of holes in the image, which is carefully covered up by a diamonte button (to look like a broach) in the finished layout! There are always ways to cover any mishaps!
Best advise is:
Go slowly and gently.
The love for her baby is so evident in her face. My grandmother was a tiny woman of 4ft 10ins. A few years later, my father and his older brother were taken away to the midlands of England to farms for safety during the war, as most children were. When my grandmother went to check on them, the officials had 'lost' them! She took train after train, walked miles in towns and countryside she didn’t know until she found them swearing they'd never do that again. So in the perils of the bombing in London, they stayed together and survived. My Grandparents moved to Australia after the war had finished to start a new life.
This was my next Assignment - A group of us were asked to scraplift the editors LO and here's mine (I cant publish hers here on blogger)
This is me in my little rocking horse!!
Then we were sent a sketch to choose and scrap it in a couple of different ways...
You can just make out the sketch on the magazine page -
so I turned it on its side for this one of Paige riding in a biscuit.
I've scrapped this pic of my god-daughter before, but decided to scrap it again as it was perfect for the sketch right side up - if that makes sense!!!
It truly was a remarkable experience. I cant wait till the next edition!!
