I wasn't sure if these should go in home decor or paper crafts and decided to put them here. These are digital images tranfered to canvas that I pretreated by painting and then distressed with sandpaper. Iron-transfered the image to the canvas (using regular t-shirt transfer paper) and then distressed some more.

I've got several variations on this technique one set I did on paper I made by hand which is  much more labor intensive. My scans of those are filed away. Will pull them up when I feel like digging through stacks of disks and post them too.

Enjoy.

Those are incredible!  I am in awe!

They are all very beautiful.

When you said distressed, did you do that with a fine grit sand paper?

Those would make wonderful gifts (with pics of there kids) for my two very hard to buy for brothers for there birthdays.
If I saw the frog one framed, I'd probably buy that ... it is adore adorable. My best freind & I are always buying each otehr frogs, & frog princes.  =D

When I say distressed - yes finest I've got which I think is 200 - I've tried coarser grain sandpapers and they are too rough for most images.

Would you pay fifteen dollars for it unframed? I queried these at a local boutique this summer and got some suggestions and now I am working on building up stock and will pitch them formally after my youngest turns one.
