Photo Transfer Canvas

One of the projects I enjoy making is a photo transfer canvas.  Thanks goes to Thomas Edison and his 1876 invention of the mimeograph machine, the forerunner for today's copy machine.  I can still remember the smell of the ink when we were given a handout fresh off the mimeograph.  It is one of those memories from grade school that is never forgotten.

What a long way the ability to make copies has come.  Now you can copy most everything.  Today's copy machines, with reverse imaging, makes it easy to do my photo transfer canvases.  And, you can even program the size of the image you need.  Now how easy is that, I ask you?

The following photo transfer canvas was made from a photo I took while waiting my turn at Culver's drive through window.  The bush was loaded with blossoms so I snapped the picture right out of my car window.  I always carry my camera with me because you just never know when you'll get a great shot.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
