I have something fun to share today - a fun little tutorial.
It is probably not a secret to most of you, but I LOVE vellum.... you can do so much with with - soft layers, delicate embellies, sequin pockets .... and so forth. But did you know that you could print photos on it? Well, you sure can!
The other day I thought I should give it a whirl, so I got my baby all set up (an Epson Picturemate Charm - best photo printer evah!) - now bear in mind that each printer may differ slightly but this is what I did.
My first attempt didn't work, I cut the vellum to 4 x 6 inches and place it into the paper feed, well when I hit print it just fed the vellum straight through and gave me an error message (something about thickness, though I cannot remember the exact term).
So on my second try I used Washi tape to temporarily secure the vellum to a piece of photo paper, it worked like a charm! (I'd say no pun intended but if you skipped past the first part of this post you won't get it ;)
I dries pretty quickly, but I did set it aside for about 5 minutes to make sure.
I love the effect, soft and wispy, transparent while maintaining the definition of the photo.
So in case you want to try something a little different - give this a shot - it is fun and easy - I think it would look great in black and white too!
Thanks for visiting!
