Creative JumpStart run by Nathalie. It's not complete but I thought I'd show what I'd done so far. I'm thinking of printing off a bird tuse; do I need a dark; possibly black; image or light? What do you think?
Also getting a 'jumpstart' from Nathalie's blog I did an image transfer. I didn't have the transfer medium shown in the video so used gel medium. My intention is to use the image on something such as a purse, phone case or such. The dragonfly measures 3.5" x 2" Quite often I'll try out a technique, for paper or fabric, or just have a play if it's something I've done before but not actually make something out of the end result. I want to try to make more things in future when I've had a little play. I decided not to trim the dragonfly before transferring it to the fabric, but if I'd wanted a neater finish I would have done.
If you sign up to the Creative JumpStart 2013 you get regular 'JumpStarts' from such people as Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, Claudine Hellmuth, Dina Wakly, Nathalie herself and many more.
