|the finished halloween canvases!|
determined not to give up, i went to another tutorial pinned on my general crafts board to do canvases from sarah's never-ending projects. she also uses tissue paper but cellotapes it to a piece of standard A4 paper before it goes through the printer. take two, for today's creation and running tissue paper through the printer .... IT WORKED!!!
|whole the issue was taped to the paper to get it through the printer .. left is the back, right is the front with the tissue attached|
|it worked! free graphic thanks to the graphic fairy|
the next step is to use mod podge to glue the tissue to the canvas. the idea is that the tissue is thin enough to take on the canvas look and feel once it is dry ... and guess what ... IT DOES!!
|ready to see if i can master the next step!|
|finished and drying home made canvases !|
so excited i went about my evening making three canvases in EARLY preparation for halloween :) now i need my printer to conk out so i can buy a new A3 printer and do lots of large photo canvases, maybe i should put the tissue paper back through by itself a couple more times :)
my sincere thanks to sarah at sarah's never-ending projects for the brilliant tip on taping the tissue to a piece of A4 paper and also to little bit funky for the tutorial that really helped me with the adhering of the tissue to the canvases! thanks also to the graphics fairy for the awesome, free vintage halloween printables i used on the canvases used to create today's halloween wall art :)
