Among the techniques that I have been learning this summer is how to do a gel medium transfer. Basically you spread gel medium or modpodge over your image of choice. Many layers of it. Then when all of these layers are dry, wet the paper and rub as much of the paper as you can off. This may take quite a few tries and many soaks. As of yet, I have not managed to successfully accomplish this technique with glossy paper materials such as magazines. I have only been successful when I use black and white printed items or anything printed on my printer. Still so much to learn…
This one to Lisa L. is one of my first. The skyscraper and colonial buildings are from a gel medium transfer.
I love this photo taken in Colfax, WA. Adding the American Funds numbers just makes me laugh.
Here’s another version of the same photograph plus a photo of the front door of the bar in Palouse, WA. The rubble comes all the way from Beirut, Lebanon. Truly.
The background is from my friend Dawn’s outdoor chair with a gel medium transfer of an image I took at Coeur d’Alene Lake and a church in Beirut on top of it all :)
This is my Holy Sleeping Bag. I made a whole series using a Campmor sleeping bag catalogue and have just started more. I love the podishness of the sleeping bags. I am sending this one to Amy Dietz but am still unsure about the rest. Any suggestions?
