Fun with photos....

There are so many cool things you can do with your photos! I discovered this site 'Craft Chi'. Have a look. This link explains how to make creative stamps/brushes in Photoshop from your photographs. Above is experimenting with bleach pens and printing from an epsom printer.

Also- printing onto Mylar/transparent plastic, and transfering that onto... whatever you like!!
This is a favourite of mine. Encorporate this into works of art- paintings, sculptures etc or just as is.
Another way to transfer a photographic image is to photocopy (colour/black n white) then paint on a layer of Impasto medium, turn onto desired surface, apply weight and let dry. then using a wet/damp cloth, rub the paper backing away, leaving the ink embedded in the medium. I will try to find pics of the process watch this space!!
