I love anything with a blanket stitch & felt! I thought you all might too... I'll let you know if I wind up doing this. I don't like the edging, but LOVE the little flowers!

Anyone up for a Stitch n' Bitch around South Bend? I live in Niles! The Riverfront Cafe is a nice place up here. Any suggestions?

yes i'm not sure about the newspaper, but i do know it is a lithographic process so i doubt the ink is "toner proper".  But here's good news, if you have the acrylic medium- it works as an excellent glue! Just slap it on the back of the newspaper clipping and apply to whatever surface, then coat the front if you want to protect it from smudgery.  Also, if your medium is a gloss finish it will give it a glossy sheen...

Another way to transfer a print is to use acetone (which you can buy at an art supply store...or just use cheap nail polish remover that doesn't have any kind of moisturizing oil in it.). 
another way as i was taught at saic was to use WINTERGREEN OIL in a similar fashion, which you can buy at a pharmacy.
Warning:I was told that this technique was used exclusively with pre-printed materials like a postcard or a magazine
Warning #2: I was also told that with changes in printing processes it is a hit-or-miss process depending on the original inks used in the mag/postcars/whatever you're trying to transfer
Warning #3: Even though wintergreen oil seems like a very benign material, it is actually very strong and you should use with a lot of ventilation.

hey supah, do you think this would work on color prints from my bubble jet printer?

I would say experiment with the bubble jet stuff but know that the brushstrokes applying the medium will distort any water-based media. But the black (or red if you can find a copier with red toner) toner will stay put. and thank you for thinking i rawk!

yay! There's a hobby lobby down near me too. I get suckered in. I would save lots-o-money if I paid attention to the sales.... ugh!  I wish they had better canvas selections. Have you ever been to "The Art Store"?

first: thanks so much for signing the guestbook, i totally love your page too:)

second: I have heard this rule as well, (the 3 clicks) I'm thinking about eliminating the gallery section and upping the shop, just because frankly, it's more important....

I re-worked the home page (http://www.supah.com) so that the shop would be more blatantly featured...

you have been a great help to me, so thank you! also thank you for liking my work- GO TEAM!
Your sculptures reminded me of my friend's work- she used to do these awesome bronzes of j-crew catalog models. I thought they were hilarious, especially with bronze being so very very permenant and fashion being fly-by-night... 
anyhow, thanks again
