I am on Team C, who is working with Bugaboo images. I chose the Live Laugh Love Rose Block from their great selection of images. I like to do things other than cards for anything goes challenges so I chose to do a quick 6x6 canvas. Our local scrapbook store owner discovered a new product for us to try. It is called Decor Attitude and is just one of many such products by Craft Attitude. It is kind of like a transparent film. You just copy your image from your computer using your printer and adhere it to your project. This image was just black and white with no coloring. You have to print a mirror image so that it is backward on your film. I printed it onto cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamisol. I then copied it onto the film. I wasn't sure how it would work, but it did just fine. I chose the "best" setting for my copy so that it would turn out as dark as possible. When it is printed, you have to trim it because the sheet is 8 1/2x11. I then took the canvas and covered it with Tim Holtz music note tissue paper. I used the Glue N Seal by inksentials to adhere it. After it dried, I used acrylic paints by USArtQuest (mixed with their transparent glaze so that it was see through) and covered the tissue paper to create a background. When that dried I just used the Glue N Seal again to adhere my Decor Attitude image and WaLa a finished canvas. To snaz it up I covered it with PPA (also from USArtQuest) and sprinkled microfine glitter on the leaves and roses. I also added some stickles, rhinestones, and dewdrops. The edges of the image did not adhere as tightly as I wanted so I used liquid glass from CTMH to glue them down better. Here it is:
Unfortunately, you can't see all the glitter and the color of the background is a little washed out. As you can see, the image copied onto the Decor Attitude perfectly. It sounds like it took a lot of time, but it really didn't. The most time consuming thing was the coloring. Everything dried very quickly-even without the heat gun.
