GIVEAWAY! Creative Jumpstart Projects





If you signed up for the Creative Jumpstart newsletter (read all about it in my December 20th post), then you know my technique video played today!  I hope you’ve been watching all the videos.  If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter yet, you’re really missing out on some great FREE techniques this month!   You can sign up HERE, and you’ll receive links to all the videos shown so far.



In my Creative Jumpstart video, I told you how to use Krylon Crystal Clear spray three different ways.  The first way I use it is to seal my inkjet printed images for use in my art and furniture projects.  In the video, I demoed the other two ways I use this product.  I transferred toner based colored images (you can do black and white as well) to muslin fabric and air dry clay. 

Here are pictures showing how I incorporated those fabric and clay pieces into my art projects.   The first two projects are the ones I’m giving away.


Two of the clay shaped tags became the front and back covers of a mini tag book.  I hand cut pattern paper to fit inside and used my crop-a-dile to punch a tag hole in the clay.  I love these round ribbon sliders that I purchased from The Piece by Piece-- they went great with all three of my projects.  This tag book is one of the two projects I’m giving away.



For the above project, I used a little Fabri-tac glue on three sides of the clay tag and turned it into a pocket for the cover of this little fabric “booklet.”  I think it would make a great little card to send birthday wishes to someone and there's even room to stick in a little gift card into the pocket, if you'd like.  This little fabric booklet is part of the giveaway as well.


Here's an opened view of the booklet.  I used some lace from my stash along with some French Guipure trim to form the top of the see-thru pocket.  I tucked another clay tag in the pocket.   


You could hand write a birthday message on the back of that clay tag before tucking it into the pocket!  Very fun!


And here's a view of the back of the booklet.  It's a piece of lace that was previously very white but I coffee stained it and now it looks much better!

Next are pictures of my last project using some of the images transferred onto fabric.



The first transferred fabric image was used for the cover of my fabric album.  Imagine doing an album like this using pictures of family members.  Maybe a newborn baby album, a wedding album, or an album with vintage pictures of your mother or grandmother.  This fabric album isn’t part of the giveaway.  I have more things I want to add to it!

Here's an inside page...



A close-up of the clay tags used as page elements in the fabric book.


This clay tag is one of my favorites!



Another set of inside pages.  The transferred fabric images also make great background mats.


Here are some close-ups of the fabric pieces.  Even with script and numbers, I think the transfer came out great!



A little additional information:  I purchased the Krylon Crystal Clear spray at a local craft store.  After I submitted my Creative Jumpstart video, I discovered that Krylon products are only distributed in the U.S. and Canada.

If you are an international Creative Jumpstart viewer, or if you have trouble finding  Krylon Crystal Clear, I wanted to let you know that I tested two other acrylic sealers using this same technique. 



I got the same image transfer results using these two acrylic sealers made by Deco Art and by Plaid.  Both of these companies distribute internationally.



Here’s another update after waking up to all of your wonderful comments! (thank you-thank you!):  Toner based copies means the images are made from a laser jet printer OR a photocopy machine.  I don’t own either of those machines, so I fill a page with images using Photoshop (or you can fill a page with images using Word, or even cut and paste images onto a page to fill that page up with images!) and then head to my local UPS store and get copies for 39 cents a page! No special paper needed –just the paper that normally comes out of those machines.  That’s the cheapest price for color copies I have found locally.  If you only have one page to copy, then just print it out in color (or black and white) on your home inkjet printer and then get it photocopied.  If you have lots of pages you want to copy and your printer is out of ink like mine was, then transfer those imaged-filled pages to a USB jump drive and use the store’s computer.  They charged me an extra $2 to use their computer but it was worth it!

The images I used on the fabric samples and the tag shaped images on the clay samples were purchased from boxesbybrkr  on Etsy.  But, of course, you can also get lots of FREE images from The Graphics Fairy



NOW ON TO THE GIVEAWAY!

I’m giving away two of the three projects.  Just leave a comment on this post if you’d like to enter to receive BOTH OF THESE PROJECTS.  This tag book....


AND this little fabric "booklet".



The giveaway will close on Friday, February 1, 2013, at midnight  PST.  I’ll announce the ONE lucky winner on Saturday, February 2nd that will receive both of these projects. Good luck!

Tomorrow is the first day the showroom floor will be open at the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA), so I'll be posting pictures of the projects I did for the Tattered Angels booth using their new paint system kits!

Thanks for posting the video for Jumpstart. I'm really enjoying the journey with all of you. I've used the Clear spray to set ink jet prints for years, but have never tried doing the prints. I'll do a sample to put in the Jump Start tag book I'm creating, and who knows, it may become part of the cover.

Diane said...

I have tried countless ways to transfer images and this looks like the easiest I have seen. Very very cool.
I can't wait to try it. I love your books and the clay is intriguing.

Thank you for sharing this technique. I am your newest fan! One (maybe basic) question - I know b&w prints from a copier are toner-based, but are color prints from the copy store also toner-based? I can't wait to try this.

morningDove said...

these are wonderful. what does "toner-based" mean. is that inkjet copies?

Christine, I loved the video and your blog. Can't wait to dig out my spray sealer and try this transfer method. Shabby chic, vintage, Paris, collage, fabric - my kind of project! Loved them!

Rorita Art said...

Can't wait to collect some of my favorite images and take them down to Staples for toner-based copies. My ATC group is doing a book and I have an idea for a page using the fabric technique! Thanks, Christine!!! What fun!!!

What a great technique. I would have never thought of that. I'm anxious to try it with my laser jet printer. I'm hoping the technique will work on any air dried clay, and that I can color over the image with ink after it is transferred. You did a beautiful job finishing off your projects. Love all of them.

Wanda said...

What a great technique and what a wonderful stuf you made with it! Thanks for sharing and helping us at the other side of the ocean by finding an alternative!

Tanks for THE inspiration, first thing I'll do on monday is go to my local craft store in Rotterdam, THE Netherlands and see wat they have!

Elizabeth said...

I've been looking into doing transfers for a while but this is most certainly the easiest version that I have seen. While I don't have any of the products mentioned I do have several different spray finishes and fixatives that are certainly worth giving a try. What you have done with the end product is simply beautiful.

Michelle M in CA said...

Christine! Loved watching your video, technique is amazing! Can't wait to try it! Thanks for a chance to win an "original Christine" :) your designs are so beautiful!

Hello Christine,

I bought the crystal clear and I tried to transfer my image repeatedly, but it does not work! Can you help me?

Rebecca said...

I enjoyed watching your technique videos--love transfers and have never tried Krylon. But visiting your blog and seeing the results of your techniques--even more fun. Would love to win, but thank you for sharing your expertise with all of us. Can't wait to try this.

Angela said...

Christine these are absolutely gorgeous and I can't believe you are giving them away. I loved watching your video and can't wait for the sun to come up so I can have a go myself. I have not seen the brands you have mentioned in Australia but have something called crystal clear thats original purpose is to provide a clear gloss finish to drawings, artwork and photographs so I am hoping it will work. I will let you know.

Phyllis McKenna said...

Your projects are beautiful! I haven't watched the video yet but I look forward to viewing it when I have more time and then trying the technique myself.

Debby said...

love these ... I'm working on using the techniques this weekend on a spring banner for my home!

Katina said...

Loved your video and the techniques showing how easy it is to transfer with the Krylon spray. I've used other techniques on fabric that were not as easy to do and did not even come out as clear so I am looking forward to buying a can of this "magic" stuff to play with! Thanks so much!

artfuljourneys said...

I love your transfer image idea. Thanks so much. Your Tag book is so Beautiful..May try it out for a baby gift. Thanks for the inspiration

What a great way to transfer images, no worrying about brush marks in gel medium. Thanks for the video and for offering these beautiful prizes!

OMG OMG OMG... I LOVE how everything came out - and particularly how you put it all together. I can't believe how those clay tags don't look like clay at all... they even look like they are fabric too. The projects you made are just sensational, and just the kind of look that I would love to be able to achieve. Your tutorial video was great - so informative, nothing complex - you made me want to be there doing it with you. Then I come over to your blog to have a look at some of the stuff you do - not knowing you were having the giveaway - and WOW - what you created with those transfer images are the real pieces of art...
I'm in the UK and know that there are lots of sprays of all kind available - so will look out for this particular one - I would love to have a go - I have some super vintage images I'd love to transfer to fabric - would love to make them into gifts too - this would incorporate having to use the sewing machine - so make me use techniques such as that too. You really have inspired me -so thank you so very much.

I love your giveaway projects, as I love all of your projects. you are awesome. When I grow up I want to be you. OOPS, I am older than you, so I guess that won't work too well.

I love how romantic you make everything feel. Great job.

you are so talented, I can't wait to take your class.

thanks again Christine

Wow! Thanks for such an easy technique for doing transfers! I've been scared to try transfers, then failed miserably with other techniques, so had given up. You've inspired me to try it again! Your samples were lovely, but the albums you created with them are absolutely gorgeous!!!
