Another fabulous class that we took with Karen O'Brien! Wendy, Mom and I took Karen's class last Thursday. What a great, creative way to spend some time with your family! We took photos that were chemically treated and photos that were printed with ink jet. bleached, scratched, sanded and painted them. Oh the possibilities are just endless of what you can do! One of my favorite ways of altering photos was the scratching and bleaching...wet your photos and scratch with anything that is sharp. Like a needle or a bookbinding awl. Rinse off the photos and bleach if you like (of course rinse that off too). Karen cut her bleach 25% or you can use a fabric bleach pen.
Depending on the paper you use, the each will react differently. Canon turned the paper a teal color and the hp turns orange...very interesting. Next time mom and I get together we are doing to try all the ideas again. Can't wait!
