{ canvas transfers }

Awhile ago I saw this cool craft project on Trading Spaces and I knew I had to try it! Christi Proctor was the designer on this show. I love it when she's on because she always does something so creative!

You can learn how to make these canvas transfers by clicking on the Trading Spaces link above, but basically this is how I did it...

  1. Print photos in grey scale on T-Shirt transfers. On your printer settings select t-shirt transfer as the type of paper and your printer will automatically print in mirror image.
  2. Iron the t-shirt transfer onto a blank canvas. I picked these up at a local dollar store for $1 each. They are 8" x 10".
  3. Carefully peel away the t-shirt transfer backing.
  4. Hang on the wall and enjoy.

  2. I transferred the images onto an artist's canvas. These ones are hard, I guess they are on a board or whatever, they aren't like fabric. :-)
