Canvas - Einstein - Image Transfer with DecoArt Media Matte Medium - Tutorial

Hello my crafty friends (:o)

Today i want to share my contribution for the August Challenge at Mixed Media Mojo *Anything Goes*

Recently i followed an appeal from LaBlanche, to send in a creation designed with a limited edition set ( DecoArt Media Matte Medium and some laserprints) you can buy at HSE 24 for a limited time and a special price.

I used the laserprint of Albert Einstein

Maybe you're interested in the *Making of*

I've started by priming the canvas with DecoArt Media Gesso black ....

.... followed by a layer of Decoart Media Crackle Paint

I've teared the edges of the laserprint

Painted on both...the laserprint and the canvas a layer of Decoart Matte Medium and let dry
Applied a second layer of Matte Medium and adhered the laserprint face down to the canvas and let dry.
For more information you can watch this video about image transfer from Andy Skinner

Removed the excess paper by rubbing the paper with a damped sponge and my fingers

Sealed with a layer of DecoArt Matte Medium

Painted a layer of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide

I've stamped around the edges with StazOn Cloudy sky and a LaBlanche Background Stamp

I've also stamped more numbers around the border to follow the theme with StazOn black 

I've painted a second layer of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide and sealed with a layer of DecoArt Media Matte Medium

I've painted two layers of DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream Titanium white

I've stamped on top of the Antiquing Cream with LaBlanche text stamps and StazOn black......

...and wiped some of the Antiquing Cream of with a damped sponge

Next i've painted a layer of DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze

I've painted a layer of DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream black and ....

....rubbed the Antiquing Cream into the cracks with a sponge  

I've sealed the canvas by painting  a layer of DecoArt Media Gloss Varnish

I hope you like it.
You can use any kind of laserprints you like

150 Years of Wonderland

On July 4, 1862, English mathematician and logician Charles Dodgson boarded a small boat with a few friends. Among them was a little girl named Alice Liddell. To entertain her and her sisters as they floated down the river between Oxford and Godstow, Dodgson fancied a whimsical story, which he'd come to publish three years later under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Alice in Wonderland went on to become one of the most beloved children's books of all time.

Kraft Tex Journal

Hi crafters (:o)

I had a play with Kraft Tex last weekend and made a journal

I've sewn in 5 signatures by hand

Kraft Tex from C&T Publishing comes in three colours. Natural, white and black and it's actually a tough, touchable new paper that performs like fabric and it's washable.

I had a play with the natural version first i've bought at Amazon

I've cut a piece from the roll and washed it. Still wet i've crumbled it up

As the piece was dry i gave it a treatment with Distress Reinker/ water mix
( Vintage Photo/ Walnut Stain)

Stamped with background stamps and black Archival Ink. 
I've also applied the ink around the edges

Finally a layer of Matte Medium
Left side with / Right side without the Matte Medium

It almost feels like leather

For more information / ideas i recommend to watch the video 

Try something new! (:o)
