Sheer Heaven Transfers & Acrylic Paint & Re-inkers Class

I'm going to start this post with the next up-coming class which is Acrylic Paint & Re-inkers.  I've used white acrylic paint and the Distress re-inkers to create these backgrounds.  I love the way the acrylic paint reacts with the inks and as I've used watercolour paper, it stands up to the water that you need to add to blend everything together.  The first four pictures are my samples so far and the last picture is the backgrounds before I've added anything to them.  Just wanted to give you an idea of how this actually looks without any adornment.  Love this background!!!
 
"Romantic"...
 
 
 
"Sisters"...
(notice how well the white gel pen works in their eyes, then just a dab of
 black sharpie for the pupil and voila.... zombie sisters!)
 
 
"Kindred Spirit"...
 
 
 
"Possible"...
 

 
atc sized backgrounds using this technique...
 


 
As I mentioned in my last post, I was going away for a holiday.   I've spent four weeks having a wonderful time in the USA visiting family as well as exploring with my husband, son and daughter-in-law.  Hubby and I had been to the US before a couple of times (well, okay... me 4 times and him 3 times) but this was the youngsters first trip.  It was exciting to view things through their eyes and the four weeks both flew by but I couldn't believe by looking at the photo's (870 of them!), how much we crammed into that time away.  Consequently, when I got back I knew I'd be suffering from a slight case of jet-lag and "oh no, we're home again", so wanted to do an easy class for the first one back.... what's easier than SHEER HEAVEN TRANSFERS!!!!!!   The new girls loved it, the old girls (meant in a nice way of course), enjoyed re-visiting it and confirming that yes, this is the easiest transfer you'll ever do.  Here are some samples from previous classes as I only managed to do one when I got back!
 
Okay, have had a look and there are really too many images to load here so if you want to see Sheer Heaven transfers on both fabric and paper... click here and this link will take you to the posts with Sheer Heaven...
 
This is the only new one... "cardiac"...
