If you have been following my blog at all, you know I share my successes and my failures. This was a huge flop, although a pretty one.
I tried to transfer the color images onto the white-washed pots with a splendid blender which I am going to start experimenting with a lot. It didn't work. I don't have a color laser printer may be the reason. So plan B was to just decoupage these beautiful images onto the pots. The image on the left is a Graphics Fairy image. Isn't it absolutely gorgeous? I typed in old roses and this one came up.
Next I tried my wax paper transfer method which I have been very successful with. Well, not this time. It slid around on the curved pots and smeared and....well, a picture is worth a thousand words. The reason I wanted to go over the decoupaged image with the typography was to get a very aged effect.
If you like the rose image below, I just did an Internet Yahoo search and typed in old roses and clicked on images and there I found this beauty as well. If nothing else, I shared some pretty images today. I will not give up on this. Oh, no. I will be back with a success story very soon. Thanks for your visit. I love having you.
