image transfers

i played with image transfers this evening

i used an ink jet printer and lemon scented pinesol  

you can also use a laser printer but instead of lemon scented pinesol  just use water  
here is the link to a wonderful  tutorial on how to do the transfers

the only thing i did different was to use the pinesol  and my ink jet printer

for these first ones i used  foil tape   put the image face down on the tape then  using a paint brush i brushed on lemon scented pine sol    then i started to gently rub the paper off   this is what they look like

these last two were done the same way except i used clear packing tape  i love how these came out

really interesting! The transfers make the work look distressed - nice!
