This page started out with me trying out a new technique. I have been just dying to get and use some Gel Medium to do some image transfers. That Donna Downey :0) She has really enabled me to buy so many really cool products that I would have never even looked at, and now I am totally hooked on. And this Gel Medium stuff... oh my!! I am TOTALLY over the moon with this stuff. SUPER easy... I printed a photo of a sunflower I took a while back. Just printed it out normal on my ink jet printer. Tore it out of the page, then painted my piece of card stock the same size, laid the flower face down. Waited a minute or so... then carefully pulled it back up. Rubbed off with my finger the left behind paper and OH MY.. (I said that didn't I?) How cool is this paper now??? I then decided even though this was just my test for my first time use of the product that I couldn't let it go to waste. So I created a 8x8 Scrapbook page. :0)
My Standard Lady Donkey Cocoa Bean. She is gorgeous. Sewed things all together with a zig zag stitch, added a Papertrey Ink ribbon, Thickers Letters to spell out her name (really dusted these off as they were super old!), a few rhinestone flowers and then My Collected Stamp. I got this stamp cuz it really reminded me of Cocoa. It is from Wildlife Enterprises. I stamped it out with Cocoa Brown ink (appropriate) and then cut it completely out. Simple embellishment. And happy to have inked up this stamp.
Ok.. so you want to see the Gel Medium so you know what to RUN out and get? You can see it HERE on Donna's website. Totally in love with this cool product. I may try and transfer everything I print now! :0)
Hope you like my fun little page. Started as a scrap trial and ended up a sweet Cocoa Bean layout!
Have a wonderful Sunday... me I am sitting on total red alert watching for puppies -
