New! - Vintage Image Transfer Canvas Class

For my newest class, I created this beautiful keepsake canvas.  Using the back side of an artist canvas creates a shallow shadowbox to showcase one of your favorite photographs (vintage or otherwise) - I used a photo of my maternal grandmother at age 18.  You will learn how to transfer a photo to fabric and add bits of papers, fabrics, lace, ribbons and embellishments to fashion a lovely memory piece.

You will need to bring two laser copies of a 4"x6" photo. Any copy place can make this for you on one sheet (have them use regular paper, not photo paper). This technique will NOT work on an inkjet print from a home printer.  Think beyond vintage photos - wedding, baby, anniversary, graduation photos will all work. I designed this in a neutral palette so it will work for anything. If you have special mementos, bring them to incorporate into your collage.

Class is open for signups now. Please stop by the LBH or call 817-431-7930 to reserve your seat in any buffet!
