I should have waited to post my last entry until I had tried more stuff with my wonderful new printer! Below is my first inkjet transfer, done on the ultra cheap (as in quality) photo paper from Walmart, as recommended by LK Ludwig. I am thrilled with how it came out. Next, a journal page with transfers:
The one on the left is a black and white photo of a photo, and the right is an image from the web of an equation for "strange attractors". I have no idea what that means, but I liked the name and the image. The transfers weren't as successful, because the paper in my visual journal is pretty thin, so water media makes a big mess.
Another page, using a photo taken in Pioneer Square in Seattle, looking up toward downtown. I think that it looks like Gotham City. The other page has a collection of ephemera I picked up at Floating World Books and Comics in Portland last year.
More things from Floating World, and some helpful advice from Homeland (In)Security, found in the middle of the phone book (!??) for what to do in a "situation". If we were in a "situation", would you turn to the middle of the phonebook for advice? I don't think so. I use my phonebook for cheap paper to do gluing on, and that is how I found this...
I have begun working on my collage for the TIF challenge, more later, and some preliminary photos.
