PHOTO TRANSFER on different surfaces- TRANSFERRING IMAGINATIONS

Hello everyone.

Happy to be writing today about a wonderful technique -Photo Transfer also known as Image Transfer !!!! Yes its indeed transferring your imaginations, memories and creating beautiful treasures from them....

I have done photo transfer on various surfaces, like metal, glass, wood , fabric and chipboard, using the recently launched photo transfer medium from Itsy Bitsy. The photo transfer medium has perfect consistency and gives wonderful results, when done systematically with loads of patience. Try it once and am sure you will enjoy the process... Its pretty addictive as well....so have many projects to share... Let's get started !!!!

Project 1 - Metal Planter ...Let's go to the flower market to fill the planter !!!






Project 2 - Glass lamp / votive






Project 3- Keepsake Wooden box




Project 4 -Canvas Potli pouch- transfer on fabric


Project 5 - Transferring a black and white image on chipboard.

I have photo transferred a black and white image on to a  coaster size, mdf  piece to create a magnet. To create interest, I have adhered chipboard bricks from the store to the mdf square piece using silicon glue. Next I painted the whole surface with chalk paint frozen ice. When completely dry, I transferred a black and white image. Interestingly, the white areas got completely eliminated while rubbing the paper layers. That's a great feature of the photo transfer medium from Itsy Bitsy. You can see the background colour (in this case blue) through the white areas and the design in black seems almost printed.



For the final touches, I highlighted the chipboard lines with silver gel pen and embellished with paper twine and flower. Also distressed the edges with black chalk paint. Isn't that 
cool !!!! Not to forget that for all the creations, I have sealed the transferred image with photo transfer medium and varnished the entire product with decor varnish for further protection.





There are many among us, who are painters, graphic designers... this technique is  a great way to get your designs transferred on to objects to create unique handmade, gifting products. Also helps create personalized gifts with personal pictures.
