Image Transfer onto Canvas

Hello followers!!!!

I wanted to try doing an image transfer onto a canvas, and what better way to try it then to do something for my wonderful hubby??!!

So I took one of his favorite pictures of his car and I flipped it using Photoshop so that I had a mirror image. Then I printed it off on normal printer paper and got to work.

My first attempt was a fail!!!!  I used too much glue n' seal and it washed out the picture.  That's ok though, I gessoed that canvas and used it in a later project.  

Then I picked a 6x12 canvas and tried again and this one was a SUCCESS!!!!   I wanted to decorate it up some but my hubby likes things plain and he loved it so much that he wanted to hang it in his office at work.  So I opted to leave it "plain" so that he could have it the way he wanted.  I did paint the canvas around the outside of the picture and along the sides with charcoal colored acrylic paint to cover the white of the canvas.


Happy Crafting!!!!
