5 Minutes Image Transfer!

2 Materials
5 Minutes

Always wanted to add YOUR image to a piece of furniture or sign?? Its as simple as using your computer, printer, and KIDS TATTOO PAPER! Who Would have thought it??

You need:

PAINT if you want to paint first or over it, I use Wise Owl and you get a discount if you use the Hometalk exclusive code "HOMETALKER" at

Temporary Tattoo Paper but be sure to choose the right one for your printer Inkjet~>

Laser Jet~>

Trust those two-I tried several brands and types, and those were the no fail, cleanest printing and easiest to apply options!

Start with a very unfortunate looking "canvas". This is some chest that came from World Market or Pier One and the paint was just flaking off BAD.

Give it a fresh new paint finish you love! I chose to use Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint in Begonia and Blush! I blended them through until I was happy. This has to be the EASIEST paint to blend and layer! I love it!

Then create ANY DESIGN you wish to print out on Tattoo Paper! Quotes,.. names,... designs,.. or water color flowers that you haven't perfected painting yet!

I like to make the image fade back a tad so I used my "Blush" and did a wash over the whole thing. This just finishes it off perfectly..

What do you think?? Dont the flowers look painted on?! Imagine all that you could use this on! I have seen LOTS of techniques to do this but NONE were as versitile, cheap, and EASY as this one! I hope it helps you!

So pretty :-)

Perfect for a little girls room!
