Angel in Marble


This is my first attempt at making a transfer from freezer paper. The image on the left is a transfer. The image on the right is a photocopy. This spread is not finished yet. I have not been successful in transfering from freezer paper directly to these pages which are coated with gesso/acrylic. So I transferred to a piece of copy paper and glued it in. I'm going to continue trying different transfers until I find one that will transfer to the gesso surface. These beautiful images are compliments of Above the Mark. They have a great website with lots of ideas and some fun products.

Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog! I wish it was just a "fling of the pen" but it is years of hard work and practice behind the scenes to get to this point.
There is an easier way to do transfers...with no wetting and peeling of the paper. You can actually use gesso as the transfer medium! I'll e-mail you separately,
Thanks again for the comments, Roann

This is great. I downloaded that particular image of the hands holding the flowers from abovethemark.com but I haven't done anything with it yet. What you did with yours is just fabulous.
