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.

Live well....


LOVE this saying and really enjoyed using fabric as the background..went outside my usual box and played with black and red! Used a once loved "jewel" in the flower center, added fringe at the bottom for "sassiness"! Plan on living well, laughing often and loving much for the rest of my life!
