A (Really) Simple Guide to Transferring Magazine Images to Fabric

Every time I find a successful Pinterest project, I think it's the greatest thing ever. But my recent discovery of simple transfers from magazine images is the truly greatest thing ever. This project is perfect for the pile of magazines you've been hoarding -- even if you're not one to cut into them.

I was surprised by how simple the technique is. All you need is a magazine image (inkjet, laser prints, and photocopies should also work), a gel medium -- I used Golden Soft Gel from Arizona Art Supply, a paintbrush, fabric, and water.
