Fabric Decoupage with Image Transfer

Hello Creative Friends!

This is Tanvi with my first inspirational post. Today I am sharing a project merging fabric decoupage with image transfer & walking you through the steps to do this yourself.

Here are the supplies we will use. All these are listed & linked to the store at the end of the post.
I selected a chalkboard image (Source – Google) for the image transfer. While printing the image remember-

  • to use a laser print on normal printer paper (70-85 gsm)
  • if the image contains text , as in this case, FLIP it before printing
  • either black & white or colored images can be used

Begin by applying a  layer of INSTANT IMAGE TRANSFER medium on the print & the fabric bag as well. The medium dries quickly so make sure you work promptly. Use an old credit card  to spread the medium evenly & remove any air pockets. At this step avoid leaving any medium residue on the paper, as once dried it will not come out.

While this dries, tear the design on the tissue napkin for decoupage.Saturate the image with water & rub off the paper with a sponge. Patience is the key to a sharp transfer, so do this carefully. Next use FABRIC DECO MAGIC to decoupage the tissue on the sides of the image.

I needed to add a bit of color to the black & white image so as to blend it well with the layout I was looking to create. For this I used very dilute chalk paint over the entire image.

Now using red & yellow chalk paints stencil the background. Check the entire range of 4×4″ stencils here.  For very sharp & crisp stenciling use the Mont Marte stencil brush.

Embellish with flat back pearls & handmade flowers. Finally seal with 2 coats of Varnish

Here is the final look of the bag!
