When Graphic 45 annouced their Design Team Call I knew I wanted it... and that I would need to go BIG! What is so amazing is that it has all come so easy... every project that I have done has just fallen into place... and I have so many more ideas that I can't wait to do... The following project is one that I am the most excited about... I used a technique that I learned over the summer from Claudine Hellmuth... Paper transfer to Sticky Back Canvas. So what I did was take Graphic 45's Le Cirque line and transfer it to Sticky Back Canvas and then made a wall hanging/quilt out of it! It is 4.5'x4.5.
I am sad that I was not able to completly finish it before I posted it, but I had a friend/co-worker who really needed help this weekend and I picked up her shifts. I will post it when it is done... All that is left is to put the back on and add a few little more embellishments.
I do not sew, (but the occasional straight line...) so I am very excited about how it has turned out... Everything that you see is fabric! Except the "H" that is Grungepaper covered with paper.
This technique is really simple too! You take Sticky Back Canvas (by Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Line), and peel the backing off. You want to put your pattern FACE DOWN into the sticky... You then want to really rub the paper down, like with a credit card.... The next step is to spray it with water and rub off the backing... Here is what it will look like...
After you take off all the paper, rub it down with Claudine Hellmuth's Multi-Medium in Matte. This will seal it and help get remaining fuzzies....
I hope that you have enjoyed my week of Graphic 45... Good luck to all who are trying out for their Design Team.
