I thought that today I'd share a craft that my family l-o-v-e-s. The "citrasolv" transfer method makes the final product antique-y looking, which is kind of the thing my family digs, ya know? If you don't have any idea what I'm talking about or how to use the "citrasolv" method in your crafts, follow the steps below. (if you're a master at this, skip to the "simplified steps" found at the bottom)
you'll first need a stupendous graphic. I found mine here--a site I love for all my retro graphic needs:) Print it out using a "laser" printer, in black and white. The high contrast is key. Make sure that if your print has words in the design to print a mirror image of it--otherwise your finished product will be backwards! Pour a little citrasolv in a cup and use an old paint brush to sparingly apply to the back of your image. The image should "bleed through" so that you see it from the back.
Here are the simplified steps to make your very own transfer pillow:
I finally got those scrapbook pages up that I was meaning to, by the way (...oops) go have a look
