Hello, it's Larissa here to show you a cool technique to use in your layouts. It´s all about using a solvent (acetone nail polish remover) to transfer Hambly´s overlays onto paper. The Birds on Wire were transferred in the layout below.
I know you´ve seen this technique before at Hambly´s blog here when our guest designer Giuliana Primavera made a very cool mini album cover by transferring Hambly´s silk-screened paper onto fabric but I thought it would be nice to demonstrate how you can also use it to also transfer the overlays onto paper.
In fact, you can try using solvents to transfer onto a lot of things. Solvents such as Acetone Nail Polish Remover, Polymer medium and blenders can change the make-up of an image by breaking it down and allowing image to transfer. Here I decided to use Acetone Nail Polish Remover because you can easily find it I and it´s perfect unless you´re sensitive to the smell!
White cardstock (avoid the textured ones)
Acetone Nail Polish Remover
Step 1. Select the images you want to transfer and your background and apply one coat of nail polish remover onto white cardstock.
Step 2. Quickly place the overlay ink-side down onto the background. Be careful not to move the image and using the roller, lightly smooth down the overlay to transfer the ink.
Step 3. You can repeat these steps as many times you want using different patterns.
You can also try transferring more than one image onto the same paper, working with as many layers as you wish.
I hope you find this technique as cool as I do!!! Here's some layouts where I used this technique:
See you! Larissa
