Give Thanks 2014

Being the impulse shopper that I am, I knew why I needed this rub on transfer kit as soon as I laid eyes on it. I have had this galvanized steel water cooler just waiting to be customized and this was the perfect technique. It is pretty darn easy as long as you remember to reverse your image before printing and DEFINITELY watch this video.

It’s not as seamless or matte as I would like but it beats hours of nervously hand painting cold metal!

Enjoy this Thanksgiving, or better yet, year-round reminder to live with a heart of GRATITUDE printable. And, of course it is all ready for the printer. I’d love to see what you put it on!

Wax paper transfers!

I have seen the technique of printing on wax paper via Pinterest so many times. I finally decided to use it and it worked!
My dilemma was that I couldn’t print on a large piece of paper. I wasn’t going to let that stop me! When I want to do a project, I NEED to do it NOW!

I created and reversed my image in Photoshop. After taping the wax paper to a regular piece of computer paper with double sided tape, I gave it a go.

I carefully placed the wax paper, ink side down, onto my project and rubbed the image onto the paper. I love how it turned out. The text has just the right amount if transparency for just the “vintagey” less than perfect look that I love!
