I have been busy checking out the blog sites of the participants of Pink Saturday. This could be a full time job! Awesome blogs - and incredible artwork on many! Lifestyle showcases, poetic expressions - all keep me going in my own artistic journey. I am working on a couple of different collage pieces and two paintings. Goal - GET THEM DONE - darn real job thing keeps getting in the way!
Peggy from the Friday Foto Collage asked about my transfer of the coral - I didn't really know what I used - as I have a closet shelf full of paper and paper-type products that I have collected. I knew I had this clear plastic stuff for the printer that had adhesive backing - somewhere - so while doing the collage I found it but only ONE sheet. Was down to creation deadline (as usual) so it had to work or I was out! I blew up the picture of the coral - but without photo editing ability printed it onto the clear adhesive and cut out the background (that took some patience - something I am very short on but working at). Anyways, I didn't touch it for several minutes for fear it would smear. Did the cutting and applied it to my paper - wah-lah, it worked perfectly. I should have used transfer letters for my wording - it did not come out real great - lesson learned. Okay - back to my original point - Peggy, I finally dug deep enough in my closet and found the packaging for the product - because I want more - it is by Grafix - Computer Grafix printable transparent plastic sheets with adhesive backing for ink jet printers. I purchased it at Hobby Lobby and hope they still have it! Going shopping this weekend.
