Happy New Year! Are you ready for a fantastic New Year filled with art making? I sure am. We’ve got great art coming your way in every issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, from January all the way through December. This year will bring art journaling, collage, bookmaking, assemblage, painting, surface design, and so much more.
We have lots of great reader challenges planned, and will be announcing the 2nd Artisans Search (which, with a few changes, will be international!) in March.
Let’s start the year off with a bang—and a quick tutorial. I encourage you to give it a try today! And stay tuned for a great 2011!
Carbon Copy Image Transfer
- Carbon copy (or laser printed) image
- Matte medium
- Paper towel
- Bone folder (or a spoon)
- Squirt bottle with water
- Painted surface
So easy, right? I like to do this with a really large photo copy on the back of a collage and then build up the layers with other paint and paper. It really helps to tie a piece all together.
If you want to see this technique on video, it appears on the Mixed-Media Medley Workshop which you can buy as a DVD, or enjoy right away when you purchase the download version. I hope you’ll take a moment to subscribe or renew your subscription so you don’t miss anything that the Cloth Paper Scissor team and I have put together for you in 2011!
New Year Wishes,
