Art Journaling June: Prompt 3
Image Transfer with Packing Tape
- Paint brush (for applying Mod Podge)
- Clear Packing Tape
- Mod Podge
- Spray bottle (with water)
- Black & white laser printout (Note: This technique does not work with inkjet printouts)
- Putty Spreader
Cut out an image from a black & white printout. Make sure your image is not larger then the width of your packing tape.
Tear a piece of packing tape larger then the image.
Place the tape (sticky part down) directly over the printout. Burnish down with a putty spreader making sure the image is completely adhered to the tape.
Turn the taped image over and with a spray bottle wet the back side making sure to soak the back of the printout.
Begin rubbing the wet paper off the tape. As the paper rubs off you will begin to see the image which has transferred onto the tape.
Make sure to completely rub off all the paper from the tape.
With the back side still facing up, apply a layer of Mod Podge.
While Mod Podge is still wet, turn over the transferred image and you can now place it over any pre-painted/collaged journal page.
Burnish down with the putty spreader.
