Acrylic Image Transfer Technique Finished Examples

I'm so glad you all liked the Acrylic Image Transfer technique :) I've had loads of questions about it so I thought I'd answer them first....

Thanks everyone for the awesome comments...and Angela ~ thanks so much sweetie...I'm so glad you enjoy Ink Stains!!

Lynda ~ I've posted some other easy image transfer techniques (here) and there are more in the book coming out in July (all step by step just like on the blog).

Cher ~ you weren't dreaming...asked ds to take it to the post office but found it in his truck on Tuesday ~ it will be in the mail tomorrow ;)

Elizabeth & Tammy ~ yes!! You can print your own images...this works with just about any type of image you want to use :)

Scrap Addicts ~ LOL @ the accident prone ;) Too funny...Yes, I always have been but I suppose in this case it's a good thing!

Alison ~ I'd love to see your results ~ please do post!!

Cindy ~ maybe he does sand the edges...that could be what I'm doing wrong because I don't. I'll have to try it and see if they look any better ;) Thanks!

XXSimplethingXX ~ Actually I've got some GA and images drying right now so hopefully tomorrow I can tell you other things this technique will work on. I'm pretty sure (hoping) that it can be used with other non-porous surfaces. I'll let you know tomorrow how I came out :)

Maledilla ~ No, I'm pretty sure this won't work on canvas. I do know the Water-based Stamp Cleaner Image Transfer Technique that I posted a couple of weeks ago works great on canvas. T-Shirt Transfer Material works super and there is another transfer medium designed for "soft" transfers (transfers onto canvas/fabric) but I don't recall the name right now. I will find it and let you know.

Vintage Babes ~ Thanks Bea! It's wonderful to have you here!! I'm glad you like this technique. I posted several other image transfer techniques a couple of weeks ago that you might like as can find them here ~ Image Transfer Techniques. I also have a book coming out in July that has several more transfer techniques ~ all step by step just like on the blog :)

Barbara SP ~ uncoated paper works best (cardstock or copy paper). Glossy papers don't work very well with image transfers for some reason so I wouldn't suggest using those. This works with ink jet as well as other types of transfers :)

On to the examples!!!
