Image Transfer Class and Art of the Carolina's

What a crew!
Just sharing a few pics from my samples shown during my class yesterday on Image Transfer techniques. My students were eager to learn, enjoyed a variety of different techniques--some worked better than others, but over all I think that that's how image transfers are, testy and challenging but alluring and mystical all at the same time. Revealing the faint hint of the image or the crystal clear copy is all part of the fun!
I also explained the process of creating a paint skin then creating a photo copy on a typically non porous surface by using Golden't digital ground. I've just started playing with this technique but love the possibilities that it provides to add dimension and mystery to my work.

Do you see my little assistant in back??? Such a trooper to put up with all my artistic endeavors. My oldest son was here for the weekend so he was my other trusty assistant in charge of heavy lifting and transportation of there's room for the entire fam in the art biz. Who knew???

This is perhaps my favorite technique....anyone wanna guess how I did this??? The first person that answers correctly wins bragging rights..haha :)


Coming up this week:
The Art of the Carolina's
I'll be doing a demo in the ATC make and take room on Friday at 12:00pm--woot woot

Come see me in the vendor area where I will be doing a demo on Saturday at the Strathmore table as well from 1-2pm!

I'll be featuring techniques to creating backgrounds using Ranger distress pads, working with pen and ink, and of course, creating funky lil mini houses as time permits. This is my first time doing a demo for such a wide and diverse audience so wish me luck! I have stage fright I think!

Hope you have a creative week!

I love your transfers! I always enjoy the distressed look of them. My favorite method is ink jet print outs on transparencies using soft gel as transfer medium. Love your offerings and can't wait for Pam's book! Congrats on all of your accomplishments and I was happy to read about your positive news from your biopsy! Best always - Marilyn Rock (who took your wonderful online course through Creative Workshops.
