In my house...

I used an image transfer technique to make "In my house" a little more interesting adding a ghostly lady in the parlor. I love the house cardboard cutouts that I bought at the local "Michaels". After I collaged the papers I painted it with white acrylic paint laid the image (ink jet) picture side down and let it sit a few minutes, burnished it with bone folder, then wet it with small spray of water and rubbed the paper backing off. It can also work with a laser printed image, ink jet gives it a more ghostly quality because the black ink rubs off.
