So I joined the 6x6 canvas swap to challenge myself, because I don't do canvases or painting per se much.  Then I started to panic.  Until I went to an art show and saw these amazing pieces that combined painting, collage, and image transfer.  Spoke to the artist and she said she used gel medium to do the image transfer.  Which is a technique I imagine everyone but me knew about but still it felt like a genius discovery.  I watched a bunch of youtube videos and then off I went for supplies.

I collaged some pieces of dictionary pages onto the canvas, and painted it all in oranges and reds and yellows.  Let it dry.  Then applied Golden gloss gel medium, and laid my photocopy down onto the wet medium.  It's a photocopy of a photo I took of some grafiti a few years ago, and have always loved.  Let it dry.  Then wet the paper and slowly pilled it off, revealing the transfered image.  Yay! 

I was really happy with how it turned out and want to try more and more of this.

I took a class a couple years ago and the more you get into this medium of art you will totally amaze yourself on what else you can do.  Try it on a piece of canvas fabric and see what happens or for that matter even glass.  You will be amazed and the fun of it is really not knowing what it will look like until you take that paper off!  Enjoy!!!

It looks really good! I want to try that transfer method now too! Right now I am working on some things that involve tracing an image over and over on tracing paper, I wonder if my pieces would look better transferring the image instead.
