So hope everyone had a great day yesterday!
ours was really amazing, a great day, lots of people all day.... I even got to see some family that i hadn't seen i a really long time so it was so much fun and then about 25 for supper..... WOW! It was so much fun though.... at about 11 I tiptoed up to bed and left a few men still sitting around the table playing rook and believe me I wasn't missed! Anyway It was my turn thiw week to do a technique at OLW and for some reason over there it didn't post all the pics, mind you blogger isn't really liking it eather and posted them in the wrong order but I will #them so that you all know which order to do them in!

This is what your tag will look like after you have done the transfer so this first pic is # 5
This is #4 using your bone folder.... 'burnish' your image down really well

This is #3 paint on your gell medium and then get ready to transfer your image

This is #2, lay your printed picture face down and smooth it over with your hands using very firm pressure

This is #1, the supplies you need to do these great transfers... the gell medium, i got mine at Michaels, a bone folder, a tag or something to transfer your picture on to and of course your picture... You can use a picture right from your ink jet printer just remeber to print it out on regular computer paper.... i have done this with words and images and it works really great.... oh and one more thing after you have got your image on to your tag and pressed it down really firmly wait for about 10 or 20 seconds before lifting the image off!
These are two tags that i did using this method and they worked great! Have a great day ladies and an awesome week! Remember the next word is up at OLW next Wednesday!

Hey Lynn, I got the gel medium this weekend and Annika and I tried it...very cool! just wondering though, where did you get the cool santa pic you used on the one tag? Would love to find something like it! there any reason why you couldn't burnish from the back side of the tag? We were finding that the paper wanted to tear while burnishing.
