Timeless Beauty ATC

For Mamma GroupTheme...... Time......My first ever Inkjet transfered Image on fabric !! woohoo at last I did it without damaging my printer lol.I bought some Freezer Paper off Ebay,kept putting it off because the idea is to iron on the freezer paper onto A4 size piece of material then run it through your printer,to transfer an image from your PC onto the fabric,it works lol,but i was sooooo scared I thought it may muck my printer up,but I have this little devil inside me that says DO IT !....the paper starts to curl as it goes through,so I used a stick to hold it down,very scary..........
This is the link that inspired me

Hi again Patti! I had to chuckle when reading about how you did this transfer (holding it with a stick). I tried the same thing with tissue paper and now can't get the tissue paper off. I too was scared but now I use tissue paper taped to a sheet of cardstock and it works beautiful.I glue on with Golden's Medium. Hope to post the book I'm working on where I use this technique. Sandra
