The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. Nat King Cole crooned this pearl of wisdom back in 1948 and it still rings true. For those of us who have the daily joy of parenting, there are moments where you don’t feel the love in return…
DIY PHOTO TRANSFER
Pick a photo of your beloved. Photocopy and enlarge in B & W.
Lightly tape your photocopy (picture facing down) onto your canvas board. Wear disposable gloves and head outdoors. Dip your blender pen into turps and rub pen tip in small wax on, wax off circles on the back of the paper on the parts where you’d like the image to transfer. It starts to look translucent.
Colour in with oil pastels then thin out with mineral turps for a watercolour effect. You could use linseed oil instead if you desire a less flammable work of art (or work with oil/ acrylic paints.)
Felt for letters…
Blu tac to door and feel the love!
