I've been experimenting with image transfer techniques - now what do I do with all these images?
I chose to display photos taken on trips I made to Europe over the last few years.
3x3 and 2.5 x 3 canvas frames
18x5 wooden trays
French dictionary pages
vintage fabric tape measure
How I did it:
wooden trays, backside of canvas frames
front side of canvas frames one coat of gesso
experimenting with placement on trays
wooden tray primed; dictionary pages adhered with matte medium
tray painted gold; papers "aged" with water color, rubber stamped
measuring tape adhered to back side of canvas frame
(dictionary papers were inserted into the frame later)
Different image transfer techniques were used.
flowers transferred with DASS SuperSauce and DASS transfer film; doors transferred with Lazertran turpentine method
hardware found on Ebay; images transferred using DASS method
button sewn to canvas frame; images transferred using Lazertran turpentine method
adhere frames and found objects using E-6000
This was a fun project. I think it's a really cool way to display the photos. What do you think?
