These are iron on transfers onto paper I made by hand. Most of my paper is either brown paper bags from the grocery store or newspaper.

Those are stunning. I love how the texture of the paper shows through so well.

I noticed in another of your posts you said that you used regular iron-on transfer paper, is that what you used for these, too?

P.S. Your daughter is adorable.

Thanks!! Yes regular iron-on transfer paper...these are from my first experiments in this area and I prefer them but they are labor intensive and good only for gifts and personal enjoyment. The other methods I've posted are ones that I am trying to bring to a marketable process and find a place to sell them so I can stay home with my girls.

Tell you what - I will see if I can find the instructions I've written for these and post a tutorial. It might take a few days - I hope you don't mind.

Quite lovely!
I played around in a darkroom in college and loved being able to create unique effects.  What a wonderful concept that doesn't require special equipment!

I miss the darkroom but with two children and no suitable place in our house for a darkroom - I improvise - so glad you approve...
