Hi there! So I realize that it's almost Christmas, with all the "white stuff" that got dumped on us the other day it's even more apparent. But, anyone who knows me, knows my favourite holiday is Halloween. I made this fun framed art piece a few months ago, but forgot to share it. Besides any excuse to talk about halloween and ignore the yuckiness outside ;)
I used My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up! to make my piece. I chose a variety of Halloween digital images and using the "Subway Art/Grafitti Art" styling to layout my stamped images. I really love this look for projects. I decided to try printing on an iron-on transfer sheet - to do this you have to print your images in the reverse, otherwise your image will be backwards. For stamped images that would probably work, but words... not so much. I used a linen material that I got from a local fabric store... man are those places dangerous places to go to! Not only do they sell fabrics, but beads, home decor, craft supplies... too much loveliness. It was a good thing I went solo, my husband would not have liked to spend two hours in the fabric store! I got some great deals on Halloween fabrics, since they were bringing all the Christmas ones out and needed the space, score for me!!
Anyhoo... as my first attempt with the iron-on transfer sheets - maybe it was my iron, not sure exactly how long to leave the iron on... it wasn't perfect in the corners. But it was okay since it's Halloween and it works. When I tried to put it in the frame it wasn't cooperating either... it wouldn't lay completely flat even though I did iron it. But again, it's Halloween and I thought it suited it so I let it be! It is proudly displayed on my gallery wall! I hope you like my share, you could try it for a different occasion also... have a great day!
