canvas of beauty

Okay I will admit it- one of my favorite blogs- other than my sisters- Tattered & Timeless is the Graphic's Fairy.  Is that nice woman not one of the best all around greatest people out there?
I mean she takes time out of her busy life to give us free clip art of all imaginable things.  Even if it isn't your type it is all beautiful and so useful.
She hosts Brag Monday to allow us all to show off how we use her gifts.
Here is what I did:
 I did a transfer using one of her images and then doing it by using gesso and a copy machine image.  It just transfers the ink from the paper to the canvas.  It was such fun to do I can't wait to do many more.  I can see Christmas ones, spring ones - oh the list just goes wild.
Join other to see what they are bragging about at the Graphic Fairy's Brag Monday
And since this is so vintage and antique white I thought it would be a nice thing to share at
 Faded Charm for White Wednesday.

This is gorgeous!!! I would love to see the tutorial too.

Like you, I adore all of the images that the Graphics Fairy so generously offers.

Stephanie said...

Small bloggy world-- I've been stalking your sister's blog for awhile and then stumbled on yours via The Graphics Fairy. I LOVE your artwork, I've been admiring it on your sis's site. SO glad I found yours.

Anyhow, I just used Citrasolv to transfer an image onto my dining room slipcover from a copier copy. It came out nicely but is soooo light. I wish it were darker. I want to do something similar to what you did here, but I wonder if you have a suggestion on how to get the image to be darker? Do I increase the dark in my copy? Also, how did you keep the image from slipping when you brandished? I used pins and pinned the paper on top of the fabric. The first image transfer I tried slipped really bad, and the second one was fine. But I don't know what I did different the second time so, I think I just got lucky.

Thanks for any suggestions you have!

Lori said...

I love this piece of art! GORGEOUS - at first I thought it was a pillow, transferred on burlap (it helps to read the post) instead of just drooling over the photo. This is so beautiful!! Love, Love your blog!

Penny@ "WDWS Design Trends" said...

Trisha, this is lovely! So lovely I tried it myself with a different graphic. Can't wait for the tutorial, I'm thinking there must be an easier way to get the paper off once the piece it dry! I am trying a couple different things, I will let you know if they work.

Independent Scentsy Consultant Terri Smith said...

I love this! Just ran across your blog while searching for transfer ideas for a Christmas gift. Soooo cute! love it!

Becky Wierzbicki said...

I just love this idea. I want to try it myself. I have so many yards of canvas that I need to use for some projects. I hope I can figure it out. Is it very hard to do? Thanks for being so kind as to show us how to do this wonderful craft. Sincerely, Becky...

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which
I think I would never understand. It seems too complex
and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

My site addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we
could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

Here would be the offer. The extract must not have any additives
or fillers. It tends to make a big differene. I purchased what was advertised as pure but when
i acquired and was capable to read the label, had additives.
I didn't drop any fat with that product. Because then I've bought
pure coffee bean extract as well as in one week have lost 3
lbs. I've not misplaced three lbs. inside a 7 days considering that I had been an adolescent. No facet affect and I have a tendencey to be sensative. I did go up several pounds after a couple of days(my physique resisting weight reduction) but continued getting the product and misplaced these two pounds in addition 3. I'm thrilled.

Thanks!

You simply put the gesso over the copy that is on the canvas? How long does it take? Can I paint the canvas first?

I love this... I had to experiment so I tried it with a print of a picture from my Laser Printer and it worked beautifully with the laser print too. I have always been intrigued by transfers and this is the most successful way I have found! Thank you for your post. I will be using this in so many ways. My transfer came out almost to perfect.
