Most of my creative work (and stock i sell) at the moment is done using transfers. The plain old boring kind that you shove through your printer and iron onto a daggy shirt. Except I like to think I jazz it up a bit! Here are a few images of my latest tops:
I had a lightbulb moment yesterday when I wondered if you could draw on transfer paper and it would actually work (don't ask me why i only just thought of this yesterday!). Today i did a little experiment with some left-over transfer paper from another order i had and here is the tutorial for it:
* iron your transfer according to the instructions on the pack. Each brand needs ironing differently.
I'm so excited that this has worked! I gave it a quick hand wash before to see if the sharpie would run when it was wet, but so far so good! The possibilities are endless with what can be done with this.
If you have a try of this, please post your photos on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/tara.louise.designs
I'd love to see them.
i'm now off to do another project now that i'm going to pop up on here as a tutorial.
today i am inspired by....
i've had my eye on lace shorts for awhile now ever since spotting a pair of jayson brunsden's in grazia i think it was.
i like that it brings a bit of classiness to seriously short shorts which i love wearing during summer. these are inspiring me to create a pair of my own:
i love this set. so suited to me!
first look is one i'm busting to have right now!! a simple understated tee with floral midi skirt, chunky heels and a denim jacket.
second look is a slouchy jumper, denim jeans and pair of brogues.
third look is a black maxi, pretty top and a pair of sandals with a bowler hat.
the accesories i chose were a lovely pair of sunnies, 2 chunky rings that don't match, a cross necklace, a pretty bag to hang off my shoulder/sling across my body and of course a red lippy.
i love love love the urban hippy look and try to emulate it as often as i can.
Head on over to danimezza and see what everyone else's sets look like.
