FIRST DAY BACK AT WORK !!!!
Okay when that alarm went off this morning I WAS NOT A HAPPY CAMPER !!! I could so easily just have turned back over again ... back off into that happy place ... where it is always warm !!!! SLEEPY-TOWN, what made it worse was the fact that my hubby and daughter don't go back until tomorrow (Tuesday).
Never mind ... it wasn't all that bad !!! although it was freezing, ice everywhere and quite slippy while trying to walk LOL gets you there quicker I suppose !!!
Anyway I would like to share with you one of the projects that I have wanted to try out for some time now. Yesterday I went out and purchased a plain white t-shirt. I wanted to try the iron on transfer papers that you can use through your printer. I asked Victoria of www.victoriacaseartdesigns.com if I could use one of her digital stamp images for this particular project and told her what I wanted to try out. It is my gift to her for letting me use the image in the way that I wanted to, and also to show people that digital stamp images (with the permission of the artist of course) can be very versatile in their uses. I hope over the coming days to show you my different projects and ideas on the versatility of rubber stamps and the different ways in which they can be used.
Basically the way I made the T-shirt was I printed off the original image onto a piece of lighter-weight white cardstock. I then coloured it in and sprayed it with fixative. My hubby scanned it into the computer for me (something I really must learn to do), after it was scanned we than had to make it a back-to-front image so that when it printed off on the iron-on transfer paper it printed off the way it was originally drawn. I was so nervous, never having done anything like this before !! Anyway once that was finished it was then printed off onto the iron-on transfer paper and then ironed onto the t-shirt. It is not perfect but I am very ver pleased with this first attempt.
Happy Crafting everyone !!!!
