This Is So COOL !!!!!

Some where back in September my Bloglandian Sister Dawn of The Feathered Nest got to experimenting around with finding a way to use her printer to print on material :c) Now if you don't think that's one of the coolest things ever... well there is just no hope for you joining the "So what do you think would happen if Club" :c)

I have been wondering for a while about how to go about accomplishing this feat of Magic :c) But the thought of having to confess to LW that I managed to glue my apron to the copy paper and now both the apron and paper is stuck in the printer, has been holding me back ;c) Well this is one of those times where my ability to PUT THINGS OFF was a good thing!! Cuz Dawn forged a head and discovered this little known process. Then being the sweet caring friend she is posted the tutorial with pictures and step by step instructions on her blog!!

So I copied the tutorial to my little craft tutorial file waiting for a day when I could try this bit of magic:c) Yesterday was just that day. I fired up the printer found a nice piece of cotton material dug out the spray adhesive grabbed my lucky rubber chicken, my certified to be lucky four leaf clover and made sure the horse shoe was still pointed in the right direction ;c) I Looked up Dawn's tutorial (here) and set about making a bit of alchemy.

Oh my GOSH it is so WAY cool!!!!!!!! And the best part it's sooooooooo easy!!! I used one of the scans of sheet music with a bird nest imposed over it that Dawn (again thank you little sister!!) gifted us on her blog last week. Well just have a look for yourself....

Is that not the coolest thing??? It sure beats trying to mess with transfer papers and this process or that tool. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my little bird nest, but I'm sure to find something. But I now know what to make for a friend's Christmas present, that up until now I haven't been able to come up with one decent "divine vision" for:c)

The first chance you have with a bit of time on your hands give Dawn's tutorial a try. And you to can be impressed with the magic of modern science!! Have a wonderful day or evening dear Bloglandian friends depending on what part of the world you are in.

Have you tried ironing freezer paper to muslin or cotton and cutting it to the size of a sheet of paper? It works great in printers. Silk is nice too. The freezer paper gives it stiffness and is easily peeled off after printing.

Dawn is so good at anything she does, and this is such a great idea!
